What did my Cranberry Mandarin Splash candle smell like?
Cranberry Mandarin Splash was my latest acquisition from Walmart I couldn’t wait to review. The wax was a bright orange and the scent… a tart and tangy citrus scent that seemed perfect for summer.
Here is the scent description I pulled from Walmart’s website:
Juicy notes of crisp mandarin, sweet orange and sun-kissed Satsuma gleam with crushed herbal accents, frosted mint, blushed fig fruit and a dash of rich sugar cane. Better Homes and Gardens candles provide you with high-quality fragrance. Place these aromatic candles throughout your home for an inviting atmosphere.
That’s quite the description. To me, this scent smelled like satsuma and cranberries. It reminded me of a tangy fruity punch. Sweet and refreshing.
Time to see how this candle performs!
I lit this candle in a small bathroom where it performed perfectly. Once lit, it took a good hour or more to reach a full melt pool and once it did…. the aroma of fresh citrus and cranberries filled the room. It was sugary, like a fruity punch drink more than the authentic fruit – I liked it. It was fresh and summery. I loved the strength too… the aroma filled the room with fragrance loud and clear.
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle a 7 in a small room. Anything bigger and the scent would be lost.
This candle burned great. It was very slow burning so it lasted a long time. Just keep your wick tripped daily before lighting it. My candle burned clean, no soot or smoke.
Closing to my review:
This was a great fragrance and a candle I can see myself purchasing again. It was sweet, fresh and smelled like a classic cranberry orange fruit punch. It was also pretty strong for a Better Home and Gardens candle so that’s a plus. Definitely go smell this candle next time you’re at Walmart. You might just walk away with one.
Happy candle hunting!
