I grow Lilacs and have for years. So if you miss that wonderful scent, or just love it, this is the candle for you. I purchased this one because I missed the scent of mine when blooming season ended. I was NOT disappointed. This is a gentle scent that throws nicely everytime. It's not overpowering, or "perfumey" at all. It's scent is exactly like the flowers I grow. I've added this to my list of "Kringle Favorites!!" Kringle has nailed this one...but then they do with all of their candles. Check out their Zen collection too.
