Fiji White Sands Scented Candle Review
By Christina Rylan
Brand: Bath & Body Works
Type: 14.5oz large 3 wick candle
Fragrance: Fiji White Sands
Scent Strength: Medium
What did my candle smell like?
I’ll start off by saying, the moment I smelled Fiji White Sands, I sighed in pure heaven. This fragrance is seriously moan worthy!! It smelled like the sweetest sugar and tropical fruit with hints of cream. Heavy on the sugar! YUM!!!!!!
Here is the scent description from the bottom of the candle:
Sail away to a South Seas paradise in a fragrance made from fresh sugarcane, white nectarine, and sundrenched sandalwood.
Now that I read the description and then smell the wax again, I do detect nectarines… sweet and sugary nectarines, LOADED in sugar. Seriously people, I can’t get over how much this candle smells like sugar. If sandalwood was in the mix, it was really-really light.
Time to find out how this candle burns.
I lit this candle in my master bedroom to start out and within 15 minutes of lighting the wicks, I started smelling the aroma and it smelled exactly as it did cold… white nectarines drenched in sugar. I have to say as far as sugar scents go… this rocks!! It smelled very authentic and definitely dominated this fragrance more than anything else. Still wasn’t detecting sandalwood and I was fine with that… this scent was perfect just as it was.
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle a 7 in a really large room. 8 in a medium room and a 10 and above in a small room. I kept this candle burning in my master bedroom which is a pretty large room and the aroma was light to medium.
My candle burned perfect. Zero wick issues and clean burning from beginning to end.
Closing to my review:
I absolutely LOVED Fiji White Sands and plan on purchasing a few more before they’re gone. This fragrance was so different. I’ve smelled my fair share of sugar scented candles but this one takes the cake for me… it really did smell like nectarines drenched in sugar. Super sweet and fresh. Every time I walked into my bedroom, I smiled and took deeps breaths in appreciation. Loved loved LOVED it!!!
If you’re intrigued and want to sniff this scent, you better hurry! I have a feeling it’ll be gone within the next few weeks if not sooner.
Happy candle hunting!
