Not for everyone...
OK look, this I have given so many times a try and the benefit of the doubt. The fist time was 15 months ago with a mini candle and it was absolutely heinous. I had completed a round of chemotherapy 6 months previous to that, and of course I didn't know anything aromatic would be so intolerable when I was on chemo and after. But boy was I finding out fast. With anything...perfume, smoke, foods, garlic. Garlic...you become like a vampire to it, LOL. Forward 15 months, my sense of anything aromatic is back with a vengeance (I'm like a basset hound) and I know EXACTLY what Manhattan smells like. Freshly paved asphalt. What is asphalt or also known as bitumen? A byproduct of crude oil mixed with rock to create asphalt concrete. Remember as a kid they would pave a bit of road (when I was a child in the 70's they didn't block things back then and you would accidentally step on it and bits of black rock would stick under your shoe?) This is what Manhattan smells like. Once in a blue moon you will get a whiff of some rose but that's about it for me. The other thing I have noticed the wax burns 2-3 times FASTER than any other Glasshouse mini candle which correlates with my theory that this wax is mixed with petroleum. The mini Manhattan candle was gone before I knew it whilst the others are still hanging around. I even bought a large Manhattan to try, and it normally takes 4 hours for the top layer of wax to burn and with Manhattan it only took 1 hour. There is no denying it. As soon as you lift the lid you get a petrol aroma. I like the smell of petrol when you fill up your car tank but not as a candle. So anyway, Manhattan is the most appropriate title for this candle because Manhattan is a concrete jungle of roads and skyscrapers (except for Central Park of course). I don't know how 'Little black dress' fits into things, but so be it.
Little candle...BIG fragrance!
Little Black Dress is my absolute favourite Glasshouse candle, and I actually prefer it in the mini size. The scent is such a lovely, full-bodied one and thus you only need a small candle to fill an entire room with the scent. The packaging is beautiful, a black candle is such a stylish addition to any room. All my friends and family know that tis is my favourite candle because I rave about it anytime the subject of candles or home decor comes up. Worth every cent!My favourite thing about this product is:
Value for moneyYes, I'd happily recommend this product
A gift from a wonderful friend.
Manhattan Little Black Dress Candle was given to me as a birthday present from a lovely friend. I'd never used a good quality candle before, after using it once I was hooked forever. The fragrance filled my home with exotic perfume, it transported me to this beautiful relaxing place to unwind after a long and hard day. I love it and best of all I have reused the glass container for cotton balls.My favourite thing about this product is:
