In creating its No. 20, “Water,” the Trapp candlemakers have combined the best of two worlds by making this little candle throw an aroma that is at once fresh, yet soft — manly, but with subtle hints of something like the pikake blossoms that make up a premium Hawaiian lei.
Aroma: A strong, yet subtle aroma, fresh and faintly floral.
Our Overall Rating: 5.0 stars
– Under $35 –
Pikake is an evergreen climbing jasmine of Asia long cultivated for its profuse fragrant white flowers. When we lived on Oahu many years ago, we bought these wonderful leis from a Honolulu street vendor. They lasted for days.
Anyway, for those folks who haven’t been to Hawaii, this power-packed seven-ounce candle will transport you — and your significant other — to the Islands when you light it up.
We give this candle an unqualified five stars.
