I picked a lavender scented candle in a tin (5.2oz) with my regular purchase of L’Occitane hair care products. I love the typical L’Occitane sweet lavender scent and wanted it to fill my house. Or at least the living room. The good news is that the lavender scent is really really nice. The bad news is quality control. The wick of my candle was wonky and located on the circumference, very close to the tin. I didn’t see it before the husband lit the candle, otherwise I’d have taken it back. The result was an uneven burn and some serious waste of product.
The candle’s throw was pretty good, though, and the calming lavender was a pleasure to smell. As long as you check to make sure that the wick is where it should be, L’Occitane’s candle can be a very pleasurable home product.
L’Occitane Lavender Scented Candle ($25, 5.2oz) is available online and at L’Occitane stores.
