The wicks on this were crazy for the first couple of burns but they tamed down as I burned through it a bit more. The scent is absolutely lovely - I get the florals and watery citrus mix right away, then there is the lovely musk undertone. This candle isn't super strong, but the scent is lingering and tends to occasionally waft into the next room. I would most definitely purchase it again. To me, this isn't overly herbal, more of a floral-green.
