What does it smell like? This is my first experience with Slatkin candles and sadly, I'm not impressed. The aroma reminds me of a cough syrup I used to take as a kid - the dreaded Symophylin. Yuck! There's an odd bitter edge paired with sweet berries, but rather than a tart, gourmand aroma, with a trail of smoked tea, I'm left with an odd misch-masch of cacophonous notes. Granted, I've been fighting allergies and mine is a pretty strong negative association with childhood torture, but...Where can I buy it? $10 for 1 votive at TheSensualCandle.com
The Bottom Line: High-priced, not soy, low throw all equal a disappointment. I'll stick with Slatkin's impressive fragrances and try one more candle just to be fair...But this one just wasn't my cup of smoked tea and berries.
