This fragrance is not quite what I was expecting. It is smoky and earthy in a good way and it’s not overly strong. I was expecting more cut tobacco or sweet pipe smoke, but all I mostly smell is the woodsy smoke. Occasionally I do have a hint of pipe, but it is not strong to my nose. I’ve burned the medium candle three times for several hours each time. Honestly, its ‘just ok’ for me, but others may find it more appealing. I probably won’t buy it again, and look forward to trying some other great scents. I think I prefer Cozy Cabin in this genre of smoky scents.
