Scent Strength: Strong
First impression of Tomato Vine:
The moment I smelled Tomato Vine, I closed my eyes and smiled. This fragrance smelled exactly like fresh and green tomato leaves. That may not sound very appealing to some but I must say… this candle smelled really fresh and unique. Also adding, I’m not usually a huge fan of “green” type scents but I really liked this one for some reason.
Here is the scent description from the bottom of the candle:
Sun-kissed tomato leaves, fresh spring greens, hint of lemon.
Sun kissed tomato leaves – check!! Fresh spring greens – check!! Hint of lemon? Not sure on that one. Just based off cold sniff, this candle smelled like tomato leaves and greens. Very bright and refreshing.
Now let’s see how this candle performs!
I lit this candle in my master bedroom to test and ended up leaving it there till the very end. Interestingly, this candle immediately started out on an “iffy”note. Once I lit the wicks, I thought they were defective. Normally once you light wicks, they light right up to full flames. The wicks in this candle didn’t do that… they lit right up but turned into low little nubby flames, almost to the point where it looked like they would extinguish on their own. I kept on though just to see what would happen.
Interestingly, about 5 minutes in to lighting the wicks, the aroma started drifting throughout my bedroom and by the 20 minute mark, the scent was everywhere so the strength of this candle was AWESOME!! The wicks stayed low the entire time but the candle still reached a full melt pool about 40 minutes in and seemed to be okay. The candle just burned really slow because of it.
The aroma…. so different and I liked it!! My entire bedroom smelled like fresh tomato leaves and I can’t even begin to tell you how fresh and unique it smelled. Definitely pick up this candle if you’re in the mood for something different.
Strength – I would rate this candle a 10 in a large room. 10+ in medium to smaller rooms. Loved the strength of this candle. This one candle filled my entire bedroom, open bathroom and even started spilling into other parts of my home. Very strong and fresh as can be. LOVED!!
This candle burned interestingly. The wicks lit up but never really turned into normal size flames so it always looked like they were going to fizzle out on their own at any given moment. Fortunately, they didn’t and the candle burned okay.
Closing to my review:
I absolutely loved Tomato Vine and plan on purchasing a few more with Bath & Body Works next sale. If you love fresh and green type scents, this candle has your name written all over it. I never did detect the lemon component in the scent description which would have been an added bonus but overall, I didn’t mind. I think the fresh tomato part just dominated everything else.
Next time you’re near a Bath & Body Works store, go smell this candle. My bet is, you’ll walk away with one. It’s pretty awesome.
Happy candle hunting!
