The smell of the candle, very closely resembles the terpenes that are in fact in cannabis itself. Cannabis has a very distinct smell of its own. This candle is an amazing addition to my on-going candle collection. Pinene and caryophyllene terpenes fill the air, almost immediately, complimenting each other perfectly. The smell boosts your home with the aroma of an afternoon spent outdoors wandering through a field of hemp. Where the sun beams down on the plant itself as the wind carry’s the smell away. It is a spot on, very well constructed candle. With a beautiful shiny black exterior and monogrammatic cannabis leaf displayed in its design.
