I am not sure what is wrong with the candle I received - I see other people like it - but mine smells nothing like lilac, the smell does not resemble anything I am aware of and is definitely not flower scented. Moreover, it seems very similar to the lily of the valley candle from P&B, but I have not yet lit that one so maybe it will open up differently. Overall, very disappointed with the lilac candle, unfortunately.
my all time fave is Blackberry but this one is ranking up there with it
The perfect Spring candle.
Smells wonderful and reminds me of the Lilacs at my grandmothers home.
