HOW IT SMELLS
Ernesto is a strong and powerful candle with an amazing cold throw (so you don’t even need to light this candle to smell it). When burning, it is a rich and woody scent that easily fills a space. You can detect the soft smoke note in the fragrance, however the woods and leather pair beautifully and stand out when burning.
Ernesto smells like a sexy man wearing a strong fragrance has just walked past and left their wonderful lingering scent. It has the smooth creaminess of Leather, a hint of smoke and just the right amount of woods and resins to completely captivate anyone in its presence!
