Coconut & Cilantro Herb & Irma Candle Review
By Christina Rylan
Brand: Herb & Irma
Type: 9.3oz mason jar
Fragrance: Coconut & Cilantro
Scent Strength: Medium in a small room
First impression of Coconut & Cilantro:
Coconut & Cilantro from Herb & Irma was purchased at my local Target store. Cute brand! I’ve already tried one fragrance that I really enjoyed – Tomato Flower & Herbs, so I was looking forward to trying more.
Next up…. Coconut & Cilantro. I love both separately but have never tried them combined. It sounded interesting and one I couldn’t wait to experience.
Here is the scent description I pulled from Target’s website:
Notes of bright pomelo, mandarin peel, and coconut.
Interesting, cilantro isn’t even listed in the scent description. Just citrus and coconut. I’m a little sad since cilantro would have been a great addition. ☹ And then I smelled the wax and my sadness disappeared… it smelled very bright and fresh, how could that not put a smile back on my face? It did and boy was I excited to start burning this candle.
Which happens right now!
I decided to stick to a small room to burn this candle in (for maximum scent throw) and I definitely achieved that in a small room. The strength was perfect. The aroma… a citrus coconut that really brightened the room. I would say pomelo and mandarin definitely dominated overall with coconut a light and soothing component in the background. I really liked it.
Strength – I would rate this candle an 8 in a really small room. 4/5 in a medium and I wouldn’t even attempt this candle in a large room unless you’re burning 2.
How did my candle burn?
This candle burned great. No wick issues. Clean burning from start to finish. Wick trimming was minimal but I did need to a few times here and there.
Closing to my review:
Coconut & Cilantro from Herb & Irma was a really nice and refreshing citrus I very much enjoyed. I loved the orange component rather than lime blended with the coconut. It was different. Would I purchase it again? Yes, absolutely, and next time you’re at your local Target store, check out this brand and smell a few for yourself. They’re super cute and inexpensive.
Happy candle hunting!
