What did my candle smell like?
I’m really late getting this candle reviewed before summer ends but that’s what happens when you have a thousand other candles to review before it.
Better late than never.
I’ve really been enjoying Bath & Body Works Hawaiian themed candles so far and could already tell this was going to be another winner. I love anything with coconut in it, especially sweet tropical scents. YUM!!!!! Here is the scent description I pulled off the bottom of the candle:
“The intoxicating fragrance of sweet guava mixes with golden passion fruit and rich Pacific island vanilla.”
No coconut in the above but that’s okay… first sniff smelled tropical and sweet… I even detected some tartness which I liked. I
also love passion fruit and Bath & Body Works sure knows how to mix that in their blends. Smelling the wax, passion fruit dominated and it was awesome… it was sweet, creamy and tart, I loved it!
I lit my candle in a large bedroom and it took a good 30 minutes to really start noticing the scent throughout the room. Once I did…. the aroma smelled tropical and delicious. A creamy and tart passion fruit scent with teeny hints of guava. I loved the tart notes and am guessing that’s from the passion fruit. Whatever it was, I loved it. The overall fragrance was tropical and fruity.
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle between a 6 & 7. It was interesting… the first day, I would have rated it a 6, the scent stayed pretty light… the second day and on, it got a little bit stronger but the aroma never really traveled outside my bedroom. Weird! B&BW candles are usually room fillers for me. This one wasn’t. I still enjoyed it but do wish it would have been a tad stronger.
My candle burned perfect. No wick issues, clean and even burn with no wasted wax.
Closing to my review:
I’m a big fan of Bath & Body Works passion fruit blends so I really enjoyed this candle. Actually, my picky husband liked it too. The overall fragrance was tropical and sweet with the perfect touch of tartness. Definitely a keeper but next time I purchase one, will burn it in a smaller room.
I believe this candle isn’t listed anymore online but it may be available in Bath & Body Works stores. Go smell one if you get a chance… you may go home with one.
Happy candle hunting!
