Island Margarita Candle – Bath & Body Works
By Christina Rylan
Brand: Bath & Body Works
Type: 14.5oz 3 wick candle
Fragrance: Island Margarita
Scent Strength: Medium
What did my candle smell like?
Here is the scent description from the bottom label on the candle:
The intoxicating scent of sunny mandarin, sweet mango and juicy plum with a freshly salted rim.
That sounds pretty delicious to me and unusual. Most margarita scents are mostly comprised of Lime, not mandarin or plum. I could make out pretty much everything in the description, especially the saltiness which I thought was pretty cool since that is a big component to a margarita. Taking that first sip with that bite of salt on your tongue. Mmmm!!
I lit this candle in my standard review room I like to burn Bath & Body Work candles in (my bedroom) and it performed pretty well. The strength was a nice and steady medium scenting my large bedroom perfectly. The fragrance… it was interesting. It did smell just like the description and I liked it but I’m not sure I would say it’s the best margarita scent I’ve tried. It lacked the lime component I’m used to and I realize I prefer that citrus zest. The overall scent almost smelled “green” to me – like a plant not so much fruitiness.
If you’ve tried this fragrance, would love to know what you thought of it.
My candle burned perfect. No issues.
Closing to my review:
I enjoyed this fragrance but not sure enough to purchase it again. It wasn’t the type of margarita scent I normally enjoy and other than the saltiness… nothing else really jumped out at me that really “wowed“ me. I still rated it high because it was an overall great candle in all the categories we use to rate, I just personally didn’t care for the fragrance.
Happy candle hunting!
Burn Performance: 4/5

I love this candle. Smells like sweet fruits and salt. You can even smell the salt which was my favorite part. Will always buy this one during the summer.
