I wasn't sure about this candle at first. I travel a lot being a Federal employee, my wife put the candle in my bag to try it in my room to take some of the "hotel" away & add a bit of "home". I like the fact that it's not overpowering, adds just the right amount of scent to make the stale hotel go away. While I was deployed a couple weeks ago, I ordered room service, when the man brought up my food he asked about the smell. He loved it, I wrote down all the information and passed it along. I saw him the next day & he let me know he also ordered a candle, a subscription for a monthly box for himself & his wife! Thank you Birchbox!!
