Just sublime. Smells fresh, but there is a depth to the sent that makes it comforting. I'm not expert on scents, but the first hit I pick up was the same smell as crushing mint leaves; definitely mint, but earthy and rich. After it burns for a bit, there is a mild spice as well, and more of the earthy greenness comes through with a tiny hint of vanilla to keep everything soothing and mellow. The throw of the candle is really good, though it takes about a half-hour before the smells really starts to spread. After about an hour, a medium-size room (350 sq feet (sorry, I'm American:/)) will be nicely scented. Honestly, I don't mind that it takes a bit for the scent to disperse, since they don't recommend burning the candle for less than 2 hours at a time to prevent tunneling. Also, the scent really lingers; I'll light the candle in the evening, let it go for a couple hours before going to bed, and I can still smell it the next morning. Just leaving the candle uncovered will scent a small room. I've bought the Nazareth candle from Cire Trudon as well for the Holidays. I have a feeling that this is going to become a bit of an expensive addiction, but I will actually put an extra line in my (imaginary) budget spreadsheet for these candles if they all smell this good.
