I actually received this candle as a gift, and I'm not a huge fan of the woodsy scent. Even though I'm not a fan I would just chalk it up to personal preference; I usually prefer a less pungent candle!
This candle is AWESOME
Outside of having an awesome art deco design that looks really attracting sitting out on my coffee table, the Balsam & Cedar scented candle makes our home smell like Christmas, which is great because we have an artificial tree. Awesome product that I would definitely buy again and recommend to others, or buy as a hostess gift.
