Aquiesse Shoreline Candle


The Shoreline candle by Aquiesse has been such a hit we thought we'd give it a try ourselves tonight. It has a summery, salty, airy, ocean scent with subtle floral notes. We've only been burning it for an hour and it's very fragrant and almost liquid to the sides (which will help it burn evenly to the bottom without tunneling). I would recommend this candle to a customer looking for an ocean fragrance.

The fragrance while burning (hot scent throw) is similar to the cold scent, which is always helpful when shopping for candles. I'd give it a 4.5 on a scale of 0 to 5 for fragrance. It's not a bold fragrance, so it isn't overwhelming, but it is strong in an average sized room. This scent is also available in a diffuser and would work well in a hand soap and/or lotion. Aquiesse Shoreline reminds us a lot of the Anthousa Okeanos candle (though, that is more salty) and K. Hall Shore-Line.

We love the way Aquiesse candles burn so easily and cleanly. We give the Aquiesse Shoreline candle a 5 on a scale of 0 to 5 for burning as it liquefies quickly, requires no maintenance, and burns with a steady, even flame that doesn't flicker or smoke. (Always be sure to burn your candles in a draft-free area for a clean, consistent burn.) This candle has an amazing 100 hour burn time making the $36 investment worth it. Not to mention the glass is incredibly gorgeous to be reused in so many ways. The packaging is also stunning with a reusable cloth covered, button-top box. And to top it off - the top! It has a fun, chunky cover that can be used as a stand while the candle is in use, a snuffer to extinguish the candle, and a dust cover when not in use.

If you've tried Aquiesse Shoreline, let us know what you think!
