Before lighting:

It smells clean, like evergreen woods and citruses, with just a slight hint of florals. 

After lighting:
The blossoms really begin to come through, bold and spring like. The hinoki adds an intriguing freshness and the patchouli grounds the fragrance with an earthy quality. It smells complex and full.

After extinguishing:
The hinoki and blossoms linger the longest.
