Fragrance: Honeycrisp Apple
Scent Strength: Medium
First impression of Honeycrisp Apple:
Honeycrisp Apple was a fragrance I could not resist considering it’s the only kind of apple I prefer to buy these days. Have you tried a Honeycrisp Apple? Oh my goodness are they AMAZING and so sweet and crisp, it’s like biting into a dessert. And that’s exactly what they are – nature’s dessert. They’re that yummy.
Honeycrisp apples are expensive if you don’t purchase them on sale but worth every penny in my opinion. So yeah, when I saw this candle, it was mine. I had to review it.
Here is the scent description from the bottom of the candle:
Golden honeycrisp, apple blossom, fresh sugarcane.
First impression when I smelled the wax… sweet and fresh apple. I didn’t really detect apple blossoms but I was okay with that. As long as I smelled sweet apples with sugar, I’ll be happy because that’s what a honeycrisp tastes like…. crisp apples loaded with sweetness. Super sweet with zero tartness.
Time to light my candle!
I stuck to a large room to burn this candle in and happy to report… it performed perfect in a large room. Once the wicks were lit, it took about 15 minutes to reach a full melt pool and from then on out, crisp and fresh apples filled my bedroom.
A honeycrisp apple tastes pretty distinctive so I had really high expectations with this candle, and after a full day of burning it… I thought it was nice but not incredible. It smelled like a fresh apple, like most apple scented candles on the market do. I liked it but this fragrance didn’t have any stand out qualities that made it differ or better than all the other apple scents I’ve tried. So, although I liked it, it wasn’t a “wow” candle for me.
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this fragrance an 8 in a large room. 10 in a medium and small rooms. It did give a decent and steady scent throw.
This candle burned great. No wick issues (YAY!!) and it burned clean and even from beginning to end.
Closing to my review:
Honeycrisp Apple was a nice and fresh apple but I just wish this candle would have smelled exactly as these apples taste. It didn’t. I liked it but I didn’t love it. It happens. Would I purchase it again? Maybe/probably. I suggest if you love apple fragrances and you see this candle in one of their stores, go smell one and see for yourself. You may walk away with one. 🙂
Don’t see this scent on Bath & Body Works website? No worries. Try one of their stores… you may find it there.
Happy candle hunting!
