|Colleen Rothschild Róisín Candle Set $69|
I have no idea what Internet rabbit hole I entered to get to the Colleen Rothschild website(here). I probably started out googling something completely unrelated like the water levels on Mars and somehow found my way to someone that had reviewed their candles with a link to their site. I love candles and I’m a sucker for nice packaging so when I saw that beautiful matte black container I was sold. I was very impressed when I opened the boxes the candle, wick trimmer, and snuffer came in with how lovely they were packed.
Róisín is described as a mix of rose, bergamot, vanilla and clove. I got hints of all of those notes but the stand outs to me were the vanilla and the clove. Burn time was estimated at 50 hours for the 8 oz/227g candle and I agree with that. The one pictured above is long gone. It burned evenly and the throw once lit was perfect for a small room. This is not the type of candle that will fill your entire house with its scent. I burned mine in my bedroom at night while reading and found it to be subtle and soothing. The candle was being offered with the wick trimmer and the snuffer which was such an amazing deal that I bought a second one as a gift… for myself. 😜
