CitySlicker Says:
I love the understated elegance of the Anthousa line. I love the look of the line, so minimal. It is not the scent. I usually don't like gardenia, as I find that it's overbearing and too perfumy. This candle is light and so pretty. I have this in my smallest bathroom and even when it's not lit the fragrance is thrown throughout. When I light it, the scent intensifies. I am cautious with this candle. I don't leave it burning for long periods of time. The price is the biggest factor in the equation...$36 means it gets lit for company or after I have been cleaning. I would definitely buy this again. I know this will sound corny, but I even kept the box it came in to display next to the candle. I keep it on the toilet - I think the frosted glass and shape are lovely too. I got this for Christmas and I am only about 1/4 of the way through, it's a nice touch in the bathroom also. It's very feminine and pretty. I am dying to get my paws on the grapefruit and blood orange. It smells delicious also. I think these make wonderful gifts, I say this because I loved receiving it! HA!
