This is the first candle that I have burned in this collection. It smells the same way burning as it does on cold. However, I find the fragrance to be stronger on cold This candle than it does burning. It pools out expeditiously. Flames are medium - high. No soot. I did not experience any aroma from this candle until the third or fourth burn. It's very light, but the aroma does fill up my bedroom. The fragrance does not travel outside of there. I would give this about a 5. Maybe a 6 for the scent and throw. This candle requires patience. So if you like milder scents and you don't mind waiting until the third or fourth burn for the fragrance to appear, this candle is for you. I would like it to be a tad bit stronger and for the aroma to burn from star to furnish as it is a waste of wax. Purchase ounce size but really only was able to enjoy half of that.
