What did my candle smell like?
I tend to purchase any coconut scent Bath & Body Works carries. I love em… ALL of them!! The moment I smelled Sunny Coconut, I couldn’t take my nose out of the candle, it smelled SOOOOO good!!!!! Fresh, sweet and oh my goodness, amazing!
Here is the scent description from the bottom of the candle:
The fragrance of sunshine orange blended with a creamy vanilla coconut that’s a beautiful breezy trip to the beach.
Yes, that’s exactly what I was smelling, a creamy vanilla, orange and coconut. Like an orange creamsicle with hints of coconut in the background. Orange was definitely the dominant component in this fragrance.
Time to find out how it burns!
I lit this candle in my master bedroom (a really large room) and within 20 minutes or so, the aroma was literally saturating my bedroom with fragrance. The aroma… a sweet and bright orange with swirls of vanilla. The coconut was totally non-existent which bummed me out a little but I was still happy overall. I love sweet orange scents and this fragrance delivered all the elements I love… fresh citrus with sweet and creamy vanilla blended throughout. It was very refreshing and even uplifting. I found myself taking deep breaths of this scent every time I walked into my bedroom.
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle an 8 in a large room. 10 and above in a medium to smaller rooms.
This candle burned perfect. No wick issues. Clean burn from start to finish.
Closing to my review:
Sunny Coconut was an awesome fragrance that I enjoyed from beginning to end. My only wish would have been adding more coconut. This scent was solid vanilla and orange. I still loved it, just not what I was initially expecting.
I no longer see this candle listed on Bath & Body Works website but my guess is they’re still available in stores.
Happy candle hunting!

I agree Christina. This candle smells exactly like oranges and vanilla. I didn't smell coconut either. I've since gone back to BBW store to purchase another and there already gone.
