On cold, the candle has a lovely fragrance which is strong. This candle was part of my first purchase and I was excited to burn them. However, after the candle pooled out, I thought it was fairly light and I could barely smell it. In fact, I sometimes forgot that I even had a candle burning and this continued on up to the third or fourth burn. I contacted Kringle and they were nice enough to refund my money. I had over half of the wax left and it seem like a waste so I continue to burn the candle and I don't know what happened, but somewhere after the halfway mark the candle began to open up and all the fragrance burst and the candle has been very fragrant since. This candle fills up my entire bedroom and the scent is definitely a spa like scent, but it is not a scent for the bedroom. I would not purchase a large candle again but I would purchase this in the wax melt form for the bathroom, I think it would be a lovely fragrance there, especially as I'm showering. Note to Kringle candle: I don't know why there was no fragrance within the first three -four burns or if what I experienced happened only with large jars only, but if you could fix that would be great. I can't give this a five based on the open, but if you would fix that I feel like the candle would be a five then. Thank you!
