Not what I expected
I have the diffuser and fell in love, so I bought the mini candle to sample. The first time I lit it, all I could smell for the first hour was a strong unsavoury burning wick aroma. The wick was trimmed to 7mm exactly because I have the Glasshouse wick trimmer but I noticed the wick was not centred to begin with. Then the lemongrass finally hit (mini candles take around an hour to give their throw, so you only have an hour to enjoy a mini candle) but I was disappointed. It was a high pitched, cloying lemongrass throw and it was settling into my mouth which was not a nice experience. I eventually had to use mouthwash to get rid of this invasion. Second time I lit it, there was no burning wick aroma (thank goodness) and the lemongrass wasn't as high pitched (I don't know how else to describe it) and it was ok but I'm not wowed. I'm not a fan of cloying gourmand scents. The wick is not centred and it keeps tunneling and I have to cover the sides and a little bit on top with foil. A real drag... In my opinion the diffuser is the perfect product to experience all the delicious notes for Saigon. I guess the reeds give it that little pinch of woody depth that lemongrass needs to be grounded.
