As a proud Hufflepuff, my husband says I would have loved this candle, no matter what. Knowing the common room is near the kitchens, I would have expected a different scent, like cookies. That does not diminish how much I enjoy this scent though! It's a refreshing and natural sweetness, that is not super overpowering. It makes me think of warm summer days, with a breeze bringing you the scent of flowers. One of my new favorites, although my husband said very quickly he was not a fan.
