For our second in-depth candle review we've chosen to have a look at the WoodWick Trilogy Range. The Trilogy combination we've chosen is the Tradewinds, Sunset Beach & Tropical Cooler.
Choosing the right scented candle can be tricky if you don't quite know the ins and outs about it. Sadly, when purchasing scented candles you don't have the option to "try before you buy." On the outside, the Candle may look aesthetically pleasing- but is it of quality? It may smell perfect when you hold it up to your nose- but is it long-lasting? These are things we want you to be able to read about before making that purchase. You can trust our opinion as we know fragrances and scents. We have a due diligence to both ourselves, and you (our customers), to be extra picky before choosing the right ones to stock at Scentiments.
So, what do we have to say about this WoodWick Trilogy candle?
Overall, this is a beautiful and unique soy scanted candle. The trilogy means there are 3 different layers of scented wax cased in the one vessel. It's great to experience a few scents in the one go and a brilliantly unique idea by WoodWick!
WoodWick candles don't come in any sort of outer packaging. This can be seen as a waste of cardboard on the environment because most people bin their candle boxes anyway, however for protection purposes, it would be handy such as giving as a gift and for gift wrapping (which I experienced myself personally just this weekend- the shape makes them hard to gift wrap!). However, the beauty of a candle such as this should not be hidden behind a box and seeing them on a shelf the way they are makes them very attractive to the eye, so I can see why WoodWick decided to go against the packaging path.

This candle comes in a glass vessel that is shaped uniquely (like an hourglass). It is simple, elegant and absolutely stunning. A wooden lid to match, the candle is perfect for classy interiors and spaces. The clear glass allows you to see the layers of wax within the candle and the soft blue and green colours go together well. The candle is complete with a simple square label which tells you what flavours you'll unpack in this diverse candle.

When you first lift the lid off the top of this candle, you will smell a soft, tropical, sea-mist type of fragrance. It's light, and enough to make you want to pick it up and keep smelling it. Great for the Spring and Summer months, the scent you initially smell when you hold the candle to the nose is 'Tradewinds' and a definite winner if you're considering purchasing it!
Our rating: ★★★★
I've been using this scent for 2 weeks now, burning it daily so that I can judge the scent strength well. Initially, while burning the first layer, it was strong in the sense that it would fill the entire home and linger around for a few hours after extinguishing. The second layer, was less strong but more intense if you were near the candle while it was burning. The tropical cooler (last) layer, is very well suited to the summer season, as it has a very 'summer vibe' to it. This last layer was strong and filled the whole home as well, however at times the scent was slightly overpowering.
Our rating: ★★★
Burn time on these candles is a whopping 100 hours for their size. They burn slow, even and have patented wooden wicks that CRACKLE as they burn. As the brand says "fragrance never sounded so good" and it's true! These candles are really one of a kind in the way they burn and we are a HUGE fan!
Our rating: ★★★★★
Overall, a unique vessel, one of a kind wooden crackling wick and high quality fragrance which emits a beautiful mixture of aromas.
