What did my candle smell like?
Bergamot Waters was an easy purchase for me. It’s a White Barn candle… need I say more? I *love* this brand and this fragrance did not disappoint.
Here is the scent description from the bottom of the candle:
A lush blend of blue bergamot waters, creamy sandalwood and a hint of sugared citrus.
The first word I would use to describe Bergamot Waters…. FRESH!!! Super-super fresh scent! I smelled everything in the description, bergamot was the most prominent component with fresh citrus in the background. Sandalwood… not so sure I smelled that but maybe it will come to life once the candle is burning.
If I had to place this fragrance in a category… I would lean towards unisex… it very much reminded me of a fresh and citrusy high end perfume/cologne that a man or woman could wear. Seriously! This fragrance would be AMAZING in bath & body for both sexes. I know I would wear it and I’ve been known to wear men’s cologne.
Time to find out how this candle performs!
I lit this candle in my master bedroom to test out and within minutes of lighting the wicks, the aroma was already traveling throughout my bedroom and oh my goodness…. very strong!!!! Within 30 minutes, the aroma was saturating my bedroom, open bathroom and was even spilling outside the room.
The aroma… a fresh bergamot scent with swirls of citrus. Sandalwood was hard to notice so if it was in the mix, it was super subtle. To me, this scent was all bergamot and citrus. LOVED!!!!!
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle a 10 in any size room. Loved the strength.
This candle burned perfect. Zero wick issues and it burned clean from start to finish. A+
Closing to my review:
Bergamot Waters was pretty awesome and a fragrance I’ll definitely be purchasing again so I hope it sticks around awhile. It was definitely a more sophisticated summer fragrance from White Barn and oh my goodness was it strongly scented. I loved every second of it!! Definitely recommend to those who love more sophisticated scents that are summery and bright.
Happy candle hunting!
