What I would describe as fresh yet inviting and warming, the scent is absolutely amazing. It is, by far, one of the best candle smells my nose has come across. My boyfriend isn't a huge candle fan (doesn't understand the fuss), but he absolutely loves this one. We have it lit every other day for around 20 minutes, that's all it needs for the scent to be in our lounge, and it still has plenty of burning time left. Very happy with this candle! We will definitely buy it again!
