Ikea Sinnlig Spa scented candle Review

The Sinnlig scented candles come in a smallish 9cm tall glass jar and have up to 40 hours of burn time in them. They have a single wick and a plastic lid. There’s also a smaller version of these candles that have no lids but I opted for the bigger versions.

I couldn’t find the actual name for the gray Sinnlig candles but they’re supposed to have a “Spa” scent so I’ll just call the gray one “Sinnlig Spa”.

The gray Sinnlig candle smells like lavender and lemon scented laundry detergent to me. I was hoping for something in the vein of Yankee Candle Aloe Water or Yankee Candle Shea Butter which both make me thing of spa immediately but this is not even close. Sinnlig Spa scented candle has a very soapy, detergent scent with some lavender and lemon notes. It’s quite pleasant but I have issues with lavender scents so this will find a new home.

It would be a really good bathroom scent.

I got a very light scent throw on the first burn but when I burned through the first inch or so of the candle I started getting a stronger scent throw. I’m seeing a pattern here with my Sinnlig scented candles; there’s no throw at the very top of the candle and it improves as the candle burns down. I would rate the throw about 4.

I had no burning issues with this candle, it got an even wax pool in about an hour in my Ikea luminary and it burned clean.

Ikea Kornig scented candle review

Another bunch of candles I got from Ikea more for decoration than scent are the new Ikea Kornig scented candles sets. I got the pink and grey one and there’s a white set available as well.

One set includes 3 pillar scented candles with a gorgeous lace relief. The smallest pillar candle in the set has burning time of 20h the medium one 30h and the largest one 40 h. The diameter of the 3 candles is 2 3/4″.

The grey set of  Ikea Kornig scented candle smells like jasmine, rose and cedar wood. It’s OK but kind of generic woody floral.

The scent on the pink one is really nice, it’s a floral mix, strong on the rose note and a fruity apple note that fits really well.

I love the lace relief design in the wax and I got the candle trays from Ikea as well to put these on and the overall look is very nice.

The scent of the pink candles is much better than the grey set, but I’d buy them again for the look.

Ikea Sommar 2016 scented candle review

Ikea Fullgod scented candle review

I don’t normally buy block candles. I prefer the stuff in jars and containers and if possible, with lids. However, I had to do a quick and budget-conscious decorating of a small house and while I was roaming Ikea for the basics I bought some block candles and accessories that I thought would look good. Mostly, these we bought for looks but they are scented.

There are two Ikea Fullgod scented candles available. Both are pillar candles with a relief wax design.

The natural or off white  Ikea Fullgod scented candle smells like a pretty generic floral mix but officially it has notes of orange blossom, roses and jasmine combined with warm amber. I mostly get roses and amber here.

The scent on the pink one should smell like lilies-of-the-valley, roses, green leaves, and warm musk but I mostly smell strong roses. It’s less warm than the white one but both are strong on the rose note.

Since they are block or pillar candles, I got some stuff to put them in and on to as well and the end result is really cute.

I wouldn’t get these for the scent but they look great when paired with accessories.

Ikea SINNLIG scented candle review

We took a road trip to Croatia and there’s a relatively new Ikea there I’ve never been to so while DH and the kids were having an ice cream and juice break I took a look and bought some scented candles. I opted for the Sinnlig scented candles that come in a glass jar and have lids and I bought a bunch because I saw that they have scents that I’ve never tried before and they were on sale.

The first Sinnlig candle I’ll do a review on is the orange Sinnlig scented candle.

The Sinnlig scented candles come in a smallish 9cm tall glass jar and have up to 40 hours of burn time in them. They have a single wick and a plastic lid. There’s also a smaller version of these candles that have no lids but I opted for the bigger versions.

The orange Sinnlig candles are called “Sinnlig Tangerine Sunshine”. The official scent notes of the Sinnlig Tangerine sunshine are: tangerine, sea.

I get a sweet citrus scent, some orange, some tangerine and a bit of an amber undertone to warm the scent up a bit. I don’t really get the ocean note, the freshness I get it’s due to the citrus. It’s a very nicely blended scent, definitely fruity but the amber gives it a more complex and warm feeling.

I didn’t get a scent throw on first two burns but when I burned through the first inch of the candle I started getting a nice scent throw which was a real surprise giving my experience with Ikea scented candles. I would rate the throw about 4.

I had no burning issues with this candle, it got an even wax pool in about an hour in my Ikea luminary and it burned clean.

I burned Sinnlig Tangerine Sunshine in my kitchen and the table area got scented in about an hour. I’d burn this in the winter next time since that’s tangerine season for us and the scent will fit better.

Ikea LUGGA scented candle jar with two wicks review

I bought six jars of Ikea LUGGA scented candles and I’m almost done with them so it’s time for a review.

Ikea LUGGA candle has 2 wicks and a fresh linen scent. It’s a jar candle and unlike Yankee Candles the jar is lower and wider and has no labels. To me, the jar shape and the plain white wax with two wicks looks clean, classy and when the wax pool forms it looks like the flames are dancing on water.

The candles burned beautifully, the wax pool formed in about half an hour thanks to two wicks. The scent remains an issue with the Ikea scented candles since I can smell them on cold but once they’re lit the scent disappears and you’re left with an unscented burning candle.

On cold, the scent of Ikea LUGGA scented candle is soapy laundry type scent, sort of similar to Yankee Candle Clean Cotton. But again, no scent throw when lit.

I burned them all at once on my outside deck and loved how they looked all lit up.

Ikea LUGGA scented candle jar with two wicks is 10 cm tall and burns for about 50 hours.

Ikea BRÄCKA scented candle set review

Ikea BRÄCKA scented candle set includes three jar candles in three different shades of turquoise and they smell like coconut with a bit of chocolate mixed in.

The scent is yummy on cold sniff, really sweet and you get a strong classic coconut. Standard coconut scented candle fare but the chocolate makes it a bit better than your usual coconut scented candles because usually, you get a coconut vanilla mix to sweeten up the coconut. This is paired with chocolate and there’s no vanilla, making it a lighter scent.

The Ikea BRÄCKA scented candles don’t smell like anything when lit though. There is no scent throw and even when the wax pools there is no scent.

The Ikea BRÄCKA scented candles burn well, they’re pretty small and you get an even wax pool in about an hour.

They are 5 cm high and you get about 15 hours of burning out of each one. They’re made out of paraffin wax and the jars are glass.

I buy these Ikea BRÄCKA scented candles because they look pretty, they make great decoration, they are super affordable and they smell nice on cold.

Ikea Sinnlig Strawberry scented candle review

Ikea has some extremely affordable scented candles. I usually pick up the ones in a glass jar just because I like jar candles and because I find these ones simple and lovely for the price.

I normally pick up the ones that have lids but this time I grabbed some that are lid-less. They cost about 1,5 EUR and have 25 hours of burn time.

The burn on the Ikea Sinnlig Strawberry scented candle is clean and fuss-free, the glasses aren’t big anyway but I’ve never had any tunneling or wick issues with any Ikea candles.

The scent on cold is a nice sweet strawberry. I had this candle in my purse on the drive from Ikea to my house and it actually scented my car nicely. Sadly, I lose the scent on this candle when I burn it. I couldn’t smell anything at all. I tried moving it to different rooms but I just couldn’t pick up any scent.

For the price, I might consider getting some more just because I like how they look and the burn time is very good. Even for what comes down to a basically unscented candle they are very affordable and look adorable.
