How To Use

  • For optimal burning, trim your wick to 5mm before each lighting to avoid smoking and overheating.
  • Always protect the surface on which the candle sits by placing it on a heatproof coaster.
  • The first burn of any candle should be long enough for the entire top layer of wax to liquefy. This will ensure an even burn for each light.
  • Refrain from burning candles longer than 3 hours at a time, and never burn a candle when there is less than 1cm of wax at the base.
  • Never leave a candle burning unattended or within reach of drafts, pets, or small children.
  • The candle jar will be hot after burning, so allow the wax to cool completely before handling
  • Once the flame is extinguished make sure the wick is upright and centered.

Nice But Unexpected

This smells almost exactly like Diptyque's Opopanax, which is a shame as the notes listed are not what Opopanax smells like. So I ended up sending this one back as it just wasn't what I'd hoped for. You definitely get a powdery, incense note from this candle and that's about it. I would have preferred to smell a bit more of the vanilla, orange peel, and leather as the candle description highlights. By no means is this not a nice candle, I liked the scent but I just didn't want to keep a candle I wasn't excited for as this scent is not a new scent to me as already mentioned by the opopanax candle I own. The packaging is gorgeous, the black really stands out, and the wooden lid is gorgeous. Having owned Hav already by this brand - I know this candle would really pack a punch, and would make a great idea for the Autumn and Winter months. Definitely recommend, but the candle note description is a bit off putting as I could not smell any of the listed notes at all.

Not bad, but not for me

This to me smells like baby powder or like a certain kind of baby product or like a clean baby's room? I just felt like there was a distinct baby smell to my nose. I didn't hate it, and maybe that's how amber smells, I'm not sure. I was looking for a stronger vanilla, orange or leather smell. I also think I'm not a huge fan of "girly" smells and that's how this came off to me as well. But it's not very strong, so that's good. The smell will not fill a large room. I moved it into the bathroom where it can be used intermittently but it won't be one I'll return to.

Everything is great about this candle, except the perfume is very faint.

This candle had everything going for it - ethical and environmentally friendly, lovely packaging and a gorgeous scent. It was a birthday present and excitedly I lit it expecting to be gently enveloped in a mix of amber, vanilla and orange. I do prefer scent more subtle than overwhelming, but disappointingly neither I nor my partner could smell anything unless we bent over the actual candle, in fact it seems to smell strongest unlit.
I notice that other reviewers have said that the scent is strong, so maybe I was just unlucky on this occasion.

Cosy winter fragrance

This is a lovely warm and cosy candle and smells very similar to the Ambre candle from a much more expensive brand. The wooden lid is a nice touch.

Alexandra Cole
Subtle but appealing fragrance

This was my first Osmology purchase and it didn’t disappoint. I am a huge vanilla (I know, boring, but I mean quality vanilla) and tonka bean fan. More recently I have discovered that I also love amber (I know, late to the party as ever!) so this ticked all boxes. Beautiful design, burns evenly. Will certainly be buying another.
