Belle Fleur describes their Velvet Santal candle as sultry, sensual and exotic. For me it is more spicy, stimulating and curious. I know exactly what they are talking about when they describe the velvety feel of a rose petal, but this fragrance is not that smooth. It has a sharp, almost pungent, angle as cardamom is the first thing that jumps out. Some people really love cardamom, but for me, it's like tickling. Fun at first but then very annoying, very quickly, and it can't stop fast enough. Here's list of the fragrance notes:
- Top Notes: Broom, Cardamom, Plum
- Middle Notes: Turkish Rose Absolute, Magnolia, Peony
- Base Notes: Agarwood, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Vanilla, Vetiver
This candle burned beautifully and was highly fragrant. The wax is silky smooth and the packaging on the Belle Fleur Rose Collection is stunning. These candles make a beautiful gift for any rose lover.
