Archipelago Botanicals make some of the best smelling candles I have ever tried. Bamboo Teak is no exception. It is a fresh, green, slightly masculine scent with a hint of the Orient. I am sensitive to chemical and perfumey smells, and am glad to report that this scent does not trigger a bad reaction - the smell is natural (but strong). One small candle will fragrance the whole room. They burn clean due to the soy wax and burn for much longer than conventional candles of the same size. Highly recommended.
