Frothy Milk Cardamom Praline Woods
Burnt Maple Smoky Oud Vetiver
Salty Saffron Pink Peppercorn White Suede
I ordered three from this collection: Cardamom Milk, Mountain Lace and Tapestry. Everyone's favorite seems to be Cardamom Milk, so I was a little disappointed that the fragrance is so subtle. I wish the Cardamom scent was more prominent, as it's a personal favorite. But it's really just a super soft, creamy scent without much depth. Throw is really good though, even though it's a subtle scent - I recommend this one if your spouse hates scented candles and you're trying to sneak one past them ;) Mountain Lace was a surprise hit for me - it's really crisp and fresh without being too fruity. I was really excited about Tapestry, since I love smoky smelling candles and anything with oud, but this one had a really sweet overtone that wasn't for me (for a smoky candle, I love Kindling). Exchanging it for Rattan, one of the core candles I haven't tried. Packaging is beautiful, as always!
Such a beautiful treat. The packaging is exceptional and the matches are a wonderful touch. I have absolutely loved the ritual of lighting dappled wood every evening in my living room and sitting down to read. It's so nice to get a whiff of the scent every now and then throughout the day, too. I find the scent carries even unlit, but is obnoxious at all. Quickly ordered my second candle from Otherland!
Manor House Weekend
1. I love Otherland. I think the scents are great, they have great throw (can fill a room - I got so into candle vocabulary working from home and would like to share that with you if you don't know), they burn evenly. Really a perfect candle.
2. MANOR HOUSE WEEKEND: I was looking for fall scents, and got a three pack of Tapesty, Dappled Woods and Sun Suede. Tapestry is really the perfect fall candle if you aren't looking for leaves, or produce, or the other more expected fall scents. I definitely feel like an ancient, empowered old woman living happily alone in a manor house, wearing very dramatic flowy dresses. Or I'm visiting that woman. I burn this one during the day. Dappled Woods is definitely a sweeter candle, which I burn at night because that's what I do with sweeter smells (oh, Silk Pajamas! I loved you!). I'd say it feels like early fall.
3. THE EXCHANGE: Sun Suede was really just too summery for me (I'm hoping for a spicy fall scent), so I wanted to exchange it. Lauren, the customer support person I talked to, made it so easy and even gave me real advice about what might match what I was looking for (the rest of the Manor House Weekend scents are relatively sweet!). Exchanging Sun Suede for Kindling was easy and seamless. I really appreciated that.
I have a candle obsession, but I just found my new favorite. Not to mention, the packaging is absolutely fabulous. I treated myself to the 3 pack including Rattan, Canopy and Chandelier, and can't wait to get my hands on the new Fall collection.
