Honolulu Sun Candle – Bath & Body Works Review
By Christina Rylan
Brand: Bath & Body Works
Type: 14.5oz 3 wick candle
Fragrance: Honolulu Sun
Scent Strength: Strong!
Introduction to my review:
Boy does Bath & Body Works know how to bring amazing tropical fragrances to life… and offer a nice variety to choose from as well. I’ve loved just about every tropical scent I’ve gotten my hands on and Honolulu Sun was no exception. It’s new this year and oh my goodness…. LOVE!! I haven’t even burned this candle yet and I‘m already ready to purchase another one.
This candle was their standard 3 wick large size… the glass was frosted in two toned blue colors that went from light to dark starting from top to bottom with pure white wax inside. There was no lid… just a paper insert covering the wax showing inside a huge wave tube on a Hawaiian beach.
What did my candle smell like?
Let’s start with the scent description found on the bottom of the candle:
I had this candle sitting on my bathroom counter for a full day before lighting it and the fragrance was strong enough to tease my nose whenever I was near it. It smelled so sweet and delicious!!! It was pure tropical YUM!!!! This would make a great bath & body fragrance… I wanted to slather it all over myself or drink it with a straw, that’s how good it smelled! I’m really partial to tropical scents though, especially coconut so this was an easy sell for me. What did I smell on cold sniff? Coconut stood out the most with sweet tropical fruit swirled in, my guess was mango or guava… hard to tell which. I absolutely LOVED it though!! Time to light this baby up to see how it fairs burning!!
I stuck to my usual large master bedroom to burn this candle in and it performed perfectly there. This candle was a room filler, it threw like crazy! It filled my entire bedroom, big adjoining bathroom and traveled into my great room with fragrance. It was mega strong and beyond perfect!! On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d rate this candle a 10. Easy.
The fragrance itself… a delicious and sweet coconut and fruit smoothie. You seriously will want to drink this candle lounging by a pool.
My candle burned just okay. It started out perfect with no issues… about half way down, one wick kept going out but it eventually caught on with some prodding and it ended up burning all the way down.
Closing to my review:
If you love tropical coconut scents, you HAVE to try this candle. It was awesome. I love sweet coconut blends and I thoroughly enjoyed this candle from beginning to end. It had all the elements I love. It’s a fragrance you will want to drink with a straw by a pool. Super yummy!!
I’ll for sure be purchasing more of this and soon!
Happy candle hunting!
