What did my candle smell like?
Be Joyful was another holiday scent from Bath & Body Works that wasn’t a holiday scent. First impression… the wax smelled really sweet and feminine… like a fruity and delicate perfume. It has quite a few elements… a little bit of floral, some sugary sweetness with a touch of citrus but what I detected the most was definitely the floral and sugar. Very different and fresh, I liked it even though I’m not a fan of floral scents.
Here is the scent description pulled from the bottom of the candle:
Let your heart be light with this blend of shimmering sugar, sparkling clementine and frosted jasmine in our most joyful fragrance ever.
Great description but I’m telling you, this was not a holiday scent. This is a fragrance I would burn during spring or summer and I keep wanting to come back to “fresh and feminine” at describing it. It was just a pretty and delicate fragrance.
I lit this candle in a large bedroom and it didn’t take long to start noticing the scent. Within 10 minutes if that. The aroma… wonderful. Within 20 minutes, the fragrance was traveling all throughout my bedroom and even spilled into my open bathroom so the strength was perfect. The overall scent…. just as it smelled when I first popped off the lid… a sweet and feminine perfume. It was fruity, fresh and girly… and really different. I can totally picture clementine, sugar and jasmine blended into this fragrance and the best words I can think of to describe this fragrance would be girly, sweet and fresh and would be incredible in a soap or lotion. Loved it!
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle an 8 in a large room. 9 and above in a medium or small room. This candle gave an amazing and strong scent throw.
This candle burned perfect. I just had to keep all three wicks trimmed constantly or the flames got out of control. Other than that, perfect burn. Clean and even with no wasted wax.
Closing to my review:
I really enjoyed this candle and hope it makes a comeback but as its true scent name, not as a holiday scent. I hold firm this candle was not a holiday fragrance. It was a perfect fragrance for bringing in spring… it was fresh, girly, sweet and feminine. A perfect candle to burn when you want something “pretty” and unique flowing through your home. That’s how I would describe this fragrance, 100%. Loved it!
Happy candle hunting!
