What did my candle smell like?
I can never resist Bath & Body Works tropical scented candles. Pretty much every one I’ve tried has been amazing and Tiki Beach sounded right up my alley. Here is the scent description from the bottom of the candle:
A scent as warm as sunrays – a luxurious blend of vanilla, musk, orchids and toasted coconut.
Okay, I admit it was the “toasted coconut” that grabbed me. I LOVE coconut scents and Bath & Body Works has some of the best. I had to review this fragrance.
First impression, very cute and simple candle. The glass was clear and frosted… the wax was pure white and the label was sort of abstract in shades of greens and blues (see picture above.) The candle itself smelled fresh with a touch of floral and coconut. It was very different and “pretty” would be a great word to describe it. It didn’t really smell tropical like a poolside drink. It instead reminded me of a sweet and fresh body lotion or soap. It was a wonderful blend of fruity and floral. I liked it. It wasn’t what I expected but I still liked it.
I lit this candle in my master bedroom and it didn’t take long to start noticing the fragrance once lit… maybe 15 minutes or so. The aroma, a fresh and clean aroma with hints of floral and sweet coconut. Super fresh but what I loved the most was the sweetness of the vanilla and coconut. It toned down the floraly part enough that it gave the overall aroma an exotic and crisp edge. It was really unique.
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle an 8. Not super strong but it gave a nice medium scent throw.
My candle turned great. No wick issues, clean and even burn.
Closing to my review:
I enjoyed this candle and would definitely purchase it again. It was really fresh and a great scent to help bring in spring and summer, maybe because I found it so happy and cheerful. The aroma had a lot going on making it pretty versatile for everyone. It was sweet, floral, fresh and creamy all at once. Loved it!! If I had to nip pick though, I would say add more coconut but only because I love it so much. Other than that, great fragrance.
Happy candle hunting!

I love this candle and also bought the wall plug in's to go with it. The candle is pretty strong but with the added plug in's, it made my whole house smell so fresh and sweet. Right now many of the summer scents are 50% off so time to stock up.

I loved this candle too. Not sure enough to rate it a 5 star but it was nice. Different but fresh. I would purchase it again.

This was my first, but not last candle purchase from Bath and Body Works. I had purchased this at the store and absolutely loved it, burned great, and having a smaller sized home, less than 1300 sq feet, thought it filled my lower level beautifully. Will definitely purchase again!
