What did my Black Teakwood candle smell like?
Mmmmm!! The moment I smelled Black Teakwood, I sighed and smiled. This fragrance is masculine to the core and smelled beyond delicious.
Here is the scent description from the bottom of the candle:
Rich and mysterious black teakwood blends with soft sandalwood and crisp lavender in an elegant home fragrance.
Nice!!! I smelled everything in the description minus the lavender… that part wasn’t quite pronounced enough to smell on cold sniff but hoping that comes to life once it’s burning though.
Time to find out!!
I lit this candle in my master bedroom where it performed beautifully. The aroma once lit… niiiiiiiiice!!!! I smelled a fresh masculine fragrance that reminded me of a clean aftershave lotion or splash. Still wasn’t making out the lavender component listed in the description but overall – it was a nice fragrance. Very fresh. Teakwood and sandalwood all the way.
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle an 8. Not super strong but gave a nice and strong medium scent throw. The fragrance filled my large bedroom and open bathroom with scent but never really traveled outside those two rooms. That’s pretty much my gauge if it’s going to be a 10.
My candle burned perfect. Zero wick issues. Clean burning from beginning to end.
Closing to my review:
I really enjoyed this candle and will for sure purchase it again down the road. If you love fresh masculine scents, Black Teakwood is a must try. The label was masculine and matched the description as well and because of that, I would even consider this a “man candle” suitable to gift any fella in your life who loves candles.
Happy candle hunting!

This is the only scent I will get from bath and body works! It's a nice relaxing but manly smell. It's a scent that a woman would enjoy but would still know only a man lives here

I agree with this review. It's a very masculine fragrance. I went to purchase another one at my local store but they were already gone. I do recommend this one if you love cologne scents.
