I was hoping for a strong orange-scented candle that I could burn alongside some cinnamon/clove candles. On cold, this smelled straight up of grapefruit. I was hopeful the scent would change on hot throw. Not at all...completely grapefruit. No orange or herbal or earthiness notes as listed. Now, if you want a grapefruit candle, this is perfect and the throw is pretty good, filling a couple rooms in my house.
