Fragrance: Ocean Driftwood
Scent Strength: Medium
What did my candle smell like?
The moment I smelled Ocean Driftwood, I knew I was smelling Bath & Body Works signature mahogany… it’s unmistakable and one of my favorites – it’s masculine, fresh and delicious.
Here is the scent description from the bottom of the candle:
Bring home the luxuriously laidback fragrance of beachside oak and opulent mahogany washed smooth by the Caribbean Sea.
Smelling the wax, I wasn’t detecting beachside oak but maybe that will come to life once the candle is burning. The overall scent to my nose was a rich and masculine mahogany and it was perfect.
Time to find out how it burns!
I lit this candle in my master bedroom and it took a good 20 minutes or more before I really started noticing the fragrance. Once I did… that yummy aroma of rich mahogany I love wafted all throughout my bedroom and it was awesome. I never did detect the oak component but I was okay with that.
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle an 8 in a large room. It’ wasn’t super strong but gave a nice and stready medium scent throw. In a medium or small room, the strength would definitely go up.
My candle burned perfect. Zero wick issues. Clean burning from start to finish.
Closing to my review:
If you love Bath & Body Works signature mahogany scent, you’ll definitely love Ocean Driftwood. This scent reminded me of a fresh masculine cologne.
Happy candle hunting!

First off, I would like to state that I fell in love with new style of glass that Bath & Body Works has used in this line.
If you don't care for the candle, the glass itself is beautiful to re-purpose.
Upon making a small haul at B&BW, I ordered Ocean Driftwood thinking it would smell very relaxing.
Upon arrival, I opened the shipment to find several candles shattered to the point that glass was all over my entire order.
No worries, I called B&BW and they sent out new candles with better packaging then the first shipment.
I ended up cutting out the wax from the salvaged broken jar and cut some wax chunks to melt.
The lightly woodsy undertones and predominantly mahogany based wax only took about twenty minutes to melt in our master bedroom electric warmers.
The strength of the scent is medium but consistent.
I found this candle to be almost powdery smelling and very relaxing.
Cheers to a great customer service department at B&BW for replacing the broken candles in record time.

Would I buy this particular scent again?
Probably not, because I prefer a stronger throw and I am not a huge fan of the mahogany scent.
Happy melting! 🕯🕯🕯🕯
