I burn this candle in my bedroom and it's quite light and gentle. I can only smell the chocolate on cold but when the candle is burning I only smell the apple which is fine for me. The scent is very light and delicately scents my room of apples. I like that it doesn't cause me any headaches and the candle burns very clean. I do like the fact that the wax stays white and doesn't end up with soot in it. This is the first candle I've burned from this company and I'm very pleased I'll definitely explore other scents Serendipity offers.
