Subtle, beautiful scent

This is not an in your face, strong scent, but once it has been burning for a while it permeates the space in the most delicious way. After burning for a while, I can still smell it when I walk in the room even after it has been extinguished. The scent is complicated. I can't pick one smell out from the other. Overall it is an earthy, woody scent with something wonderful added in. If you you have a larger space or prefer a strong smell, I would reccomend getting more than one to burn at the same time. I'm planning on stocking up when it comes back!

Complex, subtle scent

Very happy with this scent combo. I wasn't sure what to expect when I ordered, but it works. I can smell it throughout my house, but it's not at all overpowering. It's difficult to explain as it's slightly heavy, but fresh and faintly sweet. The scent seems to change. Sounded corny when I read Frostbeard's description, but they were spot on!

I don’t know how they managed to create a candle that smells exactly like the feeling of bare feet on a mossy forest floor. Must be magic. Smells damp and verdant. I’m sad I could only snag a small sized one. I will be voting for it to be brought back!

Intriguing and Authentic!

I'm enchanted by this candle's indescribable smell (which I will now try to describe). It legitimately smells like the fantasy version of walking through an old forest. There's a spiciness on the air, like distant wood smoke and trampled cedar branches crushed under a deer's hoof. The rich fig notes are like fallen fruit, and the "dirt" note really smells like dirt, but in the most dreamy way -- like an earthy, mossy, sweet dirt. The individual notes can be picked out on the cold sniff, and then they all blend together into one when it burns. It sparks your imagination -- perfect for a writing session. It took me some time to figure out how I felt about this scent, because it's just so unique. But pretty soon I was hooked. I originally found the candle at a gift shop, and when I came here to order another, I was bereft to discover that it's a seasonal scent! I can't wait until it comes out again next summer.

Best earthy scented candle

Can't get enough of earthy/dirt scents, this one definitely fits the bill without being too musty - it's wonderfully balanced by the fig and rosewood. One of my favorite candles I've ever smelled.
