The past year has made me love and appreciate high end candles. I was a Bath & Body Works queen for yeeearrrss, but as I’ve gotten older I’ve appreciated the art of fragrance much more and finally found my favorite scent- neroli. So, I’m obsessed with neroli everything and am always curious to try any and every product that features neroli…and obviously, share them with you!
You all know I already love the Malin + Goetz candles in Cannabis & Vetiver that I reviewed a few months ago, so I was so excited to try this one, as a neroli obsessive!
For those that don’t know much about neroli, it’s the essential oil from the blossoms of the bitter orange tree. It’s used fairly interchangeably for orange blossom, as it’s the same thing. But, in my experience most products that say orange blossom have more grassy notes, and neroli is more sweet. This could just be in my head, though! I’ve smelled a lot of neroli and orange blossom products in my day…
A few other neroli & orange blossom favorites of mine include Kerstin Florian Neroli Facial Oil, Au Pays de la Fleur d’Oranger Neroli Blanc (aka my signature scent- pictured above!), and Penhaligon’s Orange Blossom fragrance.
Back to the candle – this is probably the only neroli candle I have tried, so of course, I love it. It’s a bit fresher than I like, because I love neroli combined with muskier scents, but I think this candle is perfect for a bathroom or kitchen because it’s just fresh and clean, and not so much of a “sexy” scent like the cannabis candle.
I love these candles because they burn so cleanly- I’ve tried a few new candle brands and have had some huge issues with them burning all the way to the edges of the jar…but not here! They fill the whole room with the scent, and all of the Malin + Goetz fragrances I’ve had are complex and not one-note or cheap smelling. If you’re looking for a new candle – don’t sleep on these ones.
Let me know below – what candle brand should I try next? ✨
