I have already reviewed Malin + Goetz Cannabis candle and promised a feature about two other scents that I have. And this time I will just write about the scent alone, since I have already mentioned all the details about the candle itself, which you can read by clicking the link.
So today I want to share about Dark Rum, which I thought would be my favourite (when I read the description on-line), and I was right! This scent is just divine, one of the best I have ever smelled. It is warm, rich, and sexy. It may sound very cliché, but it is how I think about it. Plus I would definitely wear a perfume/cologne with the same notes.
So what does it smell of?
Top notes of bergamot and plum; middle notes of rum and leather; base notes of amber-patchouli, and vanilla. It is such an amazing combination. I was hoping that I’d be able to pick up the plum and rum notes, and I definitely can! When I burn this candle I almost feel like I am a heroine of the Rum Diaries film with Johnny Depp, ha!
I’d say that this is a unisex fragrance, and both my female and male friends loved it, so it would make a great present, or a great candle to burn during a dinner party with close friends. Or a dinner with someone very special, hint-hint.
I have a travel size (which was only $14), or votive, as Maline + Goetz call it, and I would love a full size now, especially considering that half of mine is already gone…
