This candle smells exactly as the description says: salty as the ocean and a little bit burnt as the gun powder/driftwood.
It's not my fave smell ever but I would be happily buy another jar in the future.
Plus I love the fact that it was inspired by one of the greatest novel by Agatha Christie.
We sure need more AC's inspired candles!!
I recently watched BBC's And Then There Were None mini-series, and used this candle to get into the mood. This is just an amazing candle!
This might be my favorite candle I have tried from Frostbeard. I love the sea scent, it's smells just like you would imagine the island from Christie's novel, but less violent ;)
Soldier Island is Warm and Mossy
Soldier Island has a pleasantly fresh scent; the gunpowder makes it a little earthier and more mellow than most ocean scents. Not as potent as the Oxford Library candle (which makes it perfect for use in my small library, which is actually just a closet with a window).
My absolute favorite
Whenever I order a new scent I always tell myself that it can't possibly be better than the ones I already have (which are many) but in this case, it really is better. This is by far my favorite scent and I wish I had stocked up more before they went away!
