Last year, I bought 3 Colonial Candle votives from Bed Bath and Beyond. I wanted to try out a new candle company, and the votives were only $0.99 (about half the price of Yankee Candle).
I already tried the first two votives of Fresh Summer Lemon and Tropical Nectar and was delighted by their quality. The scents were wonderful and the throws were great for a votive!
The last Colonial Candle I had was Papaya Punch!
The Scent: This one is okay. It’s a nice tropical and fruity scent. It reminds me of the old Lip Smackers Papaya flavor (from about 10-15 years ago). Papaya is a hard scent to describe…especially the “candle and personal care” version. It’s creamy, fruity, and almost waxy (as a scent, not a lack of scent). Anyways, this one was your basic; exotic tropical fruit salad scent, pleasant, but nothing special. C
The Throw: Was disappointing compared to the other two I tried. I will say that Papaya Punch also had the weakest cold throw (compared to Tropical Nectar and Fresh Summer Lemon). This one only had a “scent radius” of a few feet…so unless you were right next to the votive, you couldn’t smell anything. D
I’ll assume that Papaya Punch was an unsuccessful scent, as Colonial Candle is currently not selling it. However, I am curious to try out a few more candles from this company! http://www.colonialcandle.com/default.aspx
Has anyone else tried Colonial Candle?
