What did my candle smell like?
So in my frenzy last month to get all of Bath & Body Works Christmas scents up, I forgot one – and my favorite candle of the bunch to boot!
Fresh Sparkling Snow really surprised me. It may have a holiday label placed on it but it’s so much more than that. It’s a fragrance that could easily be burned all year long and as far as the name goes… I’m not sure why they named this scent Fresh Sparkling Snow. When I imagine “snow” fragrances, I think of
peppermint or any minty blend. This candle smelled fruity and sweet and a scent I could easily see myself drinking at a tropical location.
Here is the scent description pulled from the bottom of the candle:
“In winter, all that glitters is snow, and our sparkling blend of icy pear, frozen melon and frosted musk captures all of the season’s sparkle and shine.”
Mmm! Melon! That’s what I detected when I first popped off the lid. Sweet melon and icy pear. So different and wonderful. I wasn’t sure about the musk element – if musk was present, it was fairly subtle.
I lit this candle in my master bedroom, my favorite room to test Bath & Body Works candles in and oh my goodness…. Within 20 minutes of lighting this candle, the scent was everywhere and it was fruity, sweet and delicious. I loved it!! The prominent scent… sweet melon with hints of pear. The musk… I never detected it, not once. To me, this scent is all candied melon and sugar. YUM!!
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle an 8. It wasn’t super strong but gave a nice and even medium scent throw.
This candle burned perfect. Zero issues. Clean and even burn. A+
Closing to my review:
I really liked this candle… enough that I would purchase it again for sure. It wasn’t a holiday scent either… it was a sweet and luscious melon fragrance and perfect for summer! Mmm!! I think that’s why I liked it so much… it was such a welcome change from all the pine and spicy scents I have been burning.
I definitely recommend this one for those after a sweet and fruity scent. Especially if you love sweet melon fragrances. Who knows, maybe it will make a comeback this summer but with a different name. I could see it.
Happy candle hunting!

I agree. Great candle and not a Christmas scent either.
