Manuel Canovas Bois de Lune candle is described as “a rich velvety, woody note with red cedar, rosewood, Chinese tea, and wild berries”. The wood notes are certainly prominent in this candle, that’s for sure. If the smell of a wood fire burning is something you like, you’ll enjoy burning this candle. The smell also has a touch of sweetness to it thanks to the wild berries, my friend actually thought she detected some plum notes in the candle.
While this isn’t a scent I’d pick for myself, I definitely enjoy how homey it makes my apartment feel. It was like having a fireplace but without the firewood. Not only that, but the candle has burned beautifully. Jokingly, I call myself a “candle technician” because I’m always messing with wicks and hugging candles to have them burn smoothly. This candle gave me no fuss at all and burned evenly all the way down. This candle also filled up my entire apartment with it’s scent. With a scent this strong, I’m looking forward to experimenting with other Manuel Canovas candles.
