Initial Thoughts:
Wow, this is one strong candle. This is a candle that will fill a large area with fragrance quickly because it is doing that here now.  

I really don't care for candles that smell smokey so I was hoping that this Autumn Bonfire wouldn't be one of those.  

Fortunately it isn't smokey at all - Yay - and as it burns you get the ambienance of a flickering fire through that beautiful label. I am so glad I gave it a chance and didn't pass on burning it because of the name and label.  

What makes me smile is while it was burning, I was thinking...A library/den... Large, overstuffed leather chairs...dark stained wooden bookcases filled with books whose pages are aged over a lifetime of use...barely any light only what is cast from the fireplace...

First thoughts - One of my favorite scents to burn at the holidays is a chestnut and clove blend of wax from Bath and Body Works and this reminds me so much of that and I think it will be perfect not only for fall but for holiday too!

A deep, rich scent ( is there a hint of vanilla in there?) with tart cranberry, it reminds me of a warm woodsy incense that I attribute to the sandalwood and amber notes blend. I have burned it three times now and it is another I can't seem to get enough of.  

This was a Perfect burn everytime. 

While you can burn any scent candles at any time of the year, this, for me, is one that will be used now in August and all throughout winter. I wouldn't use this in the spring as I love my fresh, florals then.

The wax pooled out quickly and evenly for me, thanks to the fourth wick and the wicks never needed trimming, just the normal pre-burning care of removing the mushrooms off with a tissue.


Final Thoughts: 

What I love the most about shopping on QVC is their return policy.  If you are not happy with something you can return it which is great because of online shopping not affording us the chance to actually touch something, try it on or in this case, smell it before we buy it.  I must say, I have not been disappointed in any of my HomeWorx Candle purchases to return them and the descriptions were always spot on.


These candles will begin shipping out in September.  Currently, they are being offered on a presale ( click here ) on easy pay with $5.50 SHIPPING.
These will ship two candles deep inside of a styrofoam lined box. I would definitely purchase a set of two of these to have for the fall and winter season.


Product Description:Advance orders ship 9/22/18.
