Tonight in my warmer; Magnolia!
If someone was interested in trying some florals (without the sweetener), I would recommend trying Magnolia. Its not as strong as some florals, such as Lilac, but not as sweet as a Sweet Pea or Plumeria.
When you smell them cold, they are surprisingly strong. Thankfully once it was in my warmer it didn't overwhelm, the scent was actually a little lighter than expected.
While soft and pleasant, there is nothing about Magnolia that stands out as interesting or special. One would be able to tell its floral, but not be able to specify which one by scent alone as someone could with a Rose or Lavender.
But if your one of the few people on the fence about florals, Magnolia is a nice halfway between the super sweet and the heavy scented.
Pros; A soft floral that doesn't overwhelm
Cons; Probably something you would purchase once; forgettable
Overall; 7/10 I'm glad I tried it, but probably won't purchase again.
