Type: 14.5oz large 3 wicks candle
Fragrance: Honey Tangerine
Scent Strength: Light/medium
First impression of Honey Tangerine:
Honey Tangerine smelled pretty good just based off cold sniff. The wax smelled like a perfect blend of sweet tangerines and honey along with a hint of vanilla. Very nice!!
Here is the scent description from the bottom of the candle:
Sugared honeycomb, golden tangerine, warm tonka bean.
Yay! My nose was right on the money with this candle. I could detect all three elements. Now it’s time to see how it performs once burning. I’m hoping it stays true. We shall see!!
I lit this candle in my master bedroom hoping the aroma would be strong enough to fill that large of a room and I’m a little sad to report, the aroma was pretty subtle in a really large room. But… it still held its own. Once the wicks were lit, it took the average 15 minutes before the candle reached a full melt pool and from then on out… sweet tangerine, honey and vanilla filled my bedroom with a very soft and subtle aroma that reminded me of a sweet sorbet. It smelled REALLY good!! It was sweet and refreshing but at the same time… soothing. I highly recommend this one! Just imagine a sweet tangerine aroma with swirls of honey on a bed of creamy vanilla. I loved it. My only wish would be the strength – I would have loved it even more had it been a tad stronger. And with that said…
Strength – I would rate this candle a 6/7 out of 10 in a really large room which wasn’t too bad. With that said, I still recommend sticking to medium to smaller rooms to maximize scent throw if you purchase this candle. That’s probably what I’m going to do.
This candle burned great till the halfway mark and then BAM, the dreaded drowning wicks struck. So bummed!! When that happens to me, it’s very hard to overcome so your options are throwing it away or cutting the wax up and using the rest in your melters. That’s usually what I do.
Closing to my review:
I really enjoyed Honey Tangerine and plan on purchasing this candle again before it retires for the season, I just hope my next candle burns okay. The scent itself was awesome! It was sweet, refreshing and soothing all at the same time. A perfect citrus scent to burn all year long.
I don’t see this candle listed on Bath & Body Works website right now but it should be available in stores. It wasn’t that long ago I purchased this scent.
Happy candle hunting!
