Fragrance: Bergamot Mint
Scent Strength: Light
First impression of Bergamot Mint:
I’ve always been a big fan of White Barn candles so any time Bath & Body Works has a new scent available, I usually purchase one to review. Bergamot Mint sounded right up my alley. Bergamot is such a fresh scent and usually anything blended with mint adds a soothing vibe to it. I couldn’t wait to see if this candle would be the same.
Here is the scent description I pulled from the bottom of the candle:
Sparkling Italian bergamot, crisp eucalyptus, mint leaves.
Simple but accurate. First impression, I smelled pretty much all three elements with both bergamot and mint blended equally. It smelled smooth and just as I hoped… soothing. I was excited to light the wicks and get started.
I lit this candle in my master bedroom, my favorite room to review all Bath & Body Works candles in. It’s a large room and gives me a good idea on the strength of a candle, meaning… if it can fill that big of a room with scent, it’s a keeper!! Once the wicks were lit, it took a good 15 minutes to reach a melt pool and from then on out… my bedroom was filled with a subtle aroma of a fresh and soothing bergamot which is exactly what I was hoping for. I didn’t really smell mint in the air, nor was the air crisp like a lot of mint scents can take on. To me, the mint blended with bergamot really toned both elements down creating a soothing kind of scent instead. It was different.
Strength – I would rate this candle between a 6 and 7 out of 10 in a large room. It wasn’t super strong but gave a more subtle scent throw. It’ll be much stronger in a medium to smaller rooms.
This candle burned great. No wick issues. (Thank goodness) and it burned clean and even from start to finish.
Closing to my review:
If you love fresh and soothing kind of scents that are more on the subtle side, check out this scent next time you’re near a Bath & Body Works store. You may fall in love. If you do, let us know.
Don’t see this scent listed on Bath & Body Works website? Try one of their stores which tends to carry a lot more fragrances that online.
Happy candle hunting!
