First impression of Sparkling Icicles:
Sparkling Icicles is considered a holiday scent from Bath & Body Works but I can assure you, it’s a great fragrance to burn any time of the year should you get your hands on one. It’s seasonal and probably not available online through their website but you should be able to still nab one in stores.
Sparkling Icicles is described as:
A bright fragrance of moss, bergamot and a finishing touch of citrus.
See… nothing holiday in that description.
Smelling the wax for the first time, I picked up on pretty much everything in the description. The fragrance smelled sweet and fresh so the bergamot and citrus seemed to jump out the most to me. The true test will be once the candle is burning.
Time to find out!
I lit this candle in my master bedroom, my favorite room to test Bath & Body Works candles in. Once lit, it took a good 15 minutes for the candle to reach a full melt pool and from then on out, a subtle and fresh scent of bergamot and citrus filled my bedroom. Up close, I could even smell the moss notes which I thought gave it a more soothing edge. I really liked it. The overall scent was very clean, fresh and unisex so great for both men and ladies alike. A scent I could easily see in bath & body or soap as well.
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle a 7 in a large room. 8 and above in a medium to smaller rooms. This fragrance wasn’t super strong but I still really enjoyed it. I think next time I’ll burn it in a smaller room for maximum scent throw.
This candle started out sketchy. The wicks had a hard time staying lit in the beginning but then an hour in, the flames stabilized and they were fine from then on out. Phew! This candle burned clean and even from start to finish. I was happy.
Closing to my review:
I really enjoyed Sparkling Icicles and will purchase it again for sure. I also wonder if this scent will make a come-back with a different name for spring or summer. It smelled fresh and clean, like a spring scent would so I’m crossing my fingers it will.
Definitely check out Sparkling Icicles if you love fresh and clean scents. I think you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.
Happy candle hunting!
