Rated 4 out of 5 by Aromatica Love this scent, but some issues
Since I had problems with the Cambridge candle in the same range ( barely scented, burned sootily) I didn't expect too much of this edition. On opening I was greeted with a powerful whack of the Bloomsbury scent., a gorgeous neroli and geranium with woody, mossy depth, the scented oils were separating from the wax and floating on top. I resisted the temptation to mop these up and lit the candle and hoped they would melt back into the wax....with partial success... the first few times I used the candle the smell filled the room beautifully but sadly once it was halfway down it was no longer a scented candle!!
The perfumers who created the scents for the Beautannia range have made some stunning, classic scents, truly wonderful in the cases of Balfour and Bloomsbury in particular, it is a shame that at these luxe prices there hasn't been better quality control of the products.
