Type: 14.5oz large 3 wick candle
Fragrance: Mahogany Apple
Scent Strength: Strong
First impression of Mahogany Apple:
I am a huge fan of Bath & Body Works mahogany blends. It’s such a classic and deliciously masculine fragrance. I’m not alone either, it’s so popular, they keep mixing it with a ton of different scents creating endless blends, and now apple is Bath & Body Works latest concoction. I couldn’t resist.
Here is the scent description from the bottom of the candle:
Red mahogany wood, golden delicious apple, pink peppercorn and fresh lavender.
Hmmm… smelling the wax, I picked up on mahogany more than anything else. I’m hoping all the other notes come to life once the candle is burning – but my guess is against mahogany, they won’t stand a chance.
Time to find out!
I lit this candle in my master bedroom and within 10 minutes, the fragrance was traveling all throughout my room. After a good hour, it dominated everything else I had going on the upper level of my home. The aroma… 100% mahogany. Also noting I never did smell apple, peppercorn or lavender which I pretty much expected. Everything blended with their mahogany tends to get drowned out… it’s just the nature of the beast.
For those of you that have never smelled Bath & Body Works signature mahogany and are scratching your head at what it smells like… it doesn’t smell like wood or anything rustic like you would imagine it to. Just imagine a fresh and slightly sweet masculine cologne. That’s what it smells like to me. If you love masculine scents, you will love it… it truly is fresh and delicious.
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle a 10 in a large room so smaller rooms will be room saturation strong. This fragrance is definitely a room filler.
This candle burned perfect. No wick issues. (YAY!!) Clean and even burn from beginning to end. A+
Closing to my review:
Mahogany Apple was another great rendition of their classic mahogany but keeping it real… it smelled exactly like all the others previous versions released. Literally. No variation, nothing different. I loved it but definitely would have liked to have smelled the promised apple in the mix. I think that would have smelled pretty amazing.
If this scent interests you and you don’t see it at a Bath & Body Works store or online, don’t fret… just look for another version that has “mahogany” in it and you’re good to go.
Happy candle hunting!
