It's hard to describe this scent other than to say it doesn't have any. Pure and clean.
We love the spiral candles, particularly for gifts, but am now even more perfectly happy with them that we can get unscented! Such a unique gift.
I'll be giving this as a gift. It looks good. The only problem I had with it is I also ordered scented candles as well and the unscented one picked up the scents of the other candles while in transit. I'd suggest putting the boxed, unscented candles into a sealed bag to protect them from other odors if they are being shipped with scented items. Luckily I had time to air it out before giving the gift.
This candle has such a strong, yucky floral smell. They are not at all unscented. I'm putting them away to give as a gift, because I just cannot stomach the smell at all! It's too bad, because I really was excited about these!
I bought the candle as a gift for my daughter. She LOVES candles and this is one she has never had. Funny story, she has 4 foster kids whom she will be adopting so she is very busy. She made her a cup of tea and lit the candle to watch it spiral. The kids called her away and she thoought she would only be away for a second but when she got back, the spiral part had already burned! She was so dissapoionted. Poor thing!
