I don't care for any of the scents I bought. They're very strong and overall unpleasant. They'll sit in a box until I can pawn them off as gifts to people I don't like.
I can picture Sherlock in his cherrywood study, smoking a pipe while the rain falls outside.
I bought this candle for a fall scent, but for me, it has more winter vibes. It's a warm, cozy smell on the sweeter side. I love the scent, but saving it until the weather is a little colder. I've bought around 6 candles from Frostbeard and I've never been disappointed. The only downside is that I'd be willing to go broke to fill my house with these candles.
This is a nice scent overall, but it doesn't evoke Sherlock's Study. It reminds me of a baking dessert. I emailed asking if the "rain" scent had any citrus in it because it smells citrusy to me and I am allergic to citrus, so I get a sore throat burning this candle ...but no one ever replied to me. I would expect a Sherlock Holmes scent to be slightly more masculine and smokier: tobacco, firewood, leather, tea, newspaper, his chemistry set, fogginess, etc. I did buy another candle from another seller and it had a more masculine smell of tobacco, teakwood, and leather and it definitely evoked the Sherlock and Watson bachelor pad / study for me compared to this. I just can't get it out of my head that this candle smells like dessert. It's a good candle, but the smell just doesn't fit. And I'm dissatisfied with the customer service relating to my question about whether or not this candle contained citrus or not due to my allergy. Either way, it doesn't smell like a study and it makes my throat hurt, so I'm not sure how often I'll burn it. I hate to gift someone a partly used candle but that might be what happens.
I thought this would be a more masculine/musky scent. But to me I get a lot of "baby powder" aroma. Mixed with the other scents, it's not bad. But not what I expected. I've grown to enjoy it, as I like to light the candle when I'm reading. So now I associate it with books.
