First impression of Chocolate Pistachio:
I’m not usually a fan of chocolate or pistachio scents but I figured, what the heck! This candle was on sale and thought I would give it a try. What I didn’t expect was how much I would actually like it.
Here is the scent description from the bottom of the candle:
Pistachio, chocolate truffle, white powdered sugar.
Simple but gives you the main ingredients. With my nose up to the wax, I smelled it all… the pistachio, chocolate and even the powdered sugar. I was a little confused though… the picture in the label showed dark chocolate with pistachios but to me, I wasn’t catching that. I thought it smelled more like white chocolate and I really liked it.
Time to find out how this candle performs!
I lit this candle in my master bedroom and came back 20 minutes later to an aroma of sweet chocolate and powdered sugar. I still think it smelled more like white chocolate than dark but who knows? Maybe it was the powdered sugar component that tricked me. Whatever it was… it smelled pretty yummy. The pistachio was subtle and I was okay with that. I liked this scent exactly the way it was. A sweet and creamy powdered sugar scent with hints of chocolate. Very different.
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle a 5 in a large room. 7 in a medium room and maybe 9/10 in a small room. This fragrance was definitely more subtle than I’m used to with this brand.
This candle burned perfect. Zero wick issues. Clean burning from start to finish. A+
Closing to my review:
I enjoyed Chocolate Pistachio and will for sure purchase a few more before it retires. Just imagine sweet and creamy (white) chocolate drenched in powdered sugar. That’s exactly what this candle smelled like to me. Powdered sugar is pretty distinctive and I swear Bath & Body Works nailed it with this scent. Definitely check it out next time you’re at a Bath & Body Works store.
Keep in mind, Bath & Body Works carries a lot more scents in their stores than they do online so if you don’t see this candle online, check out one of their stores.
Happy candle hunting!
