What did my candle smell like?
I was organizing one of my candle closets when I found a really old style White Barn candle in the scent Black Raspberry Vanilla. When I popped off the lid, it smelled just as strong as the day I purchased it. Love that about this brand!!
Here is the scent description for Black Raspberry Vanilla:
Addictive and alluring, this delicious blend of vine-ripened berries & vanilla cream is the perfect fragrance finish.
This really is one of my favorite fragrances from Bath & Body Works. They also make it in bath & body and it really is a luscious and true raspberry scent with the perfect touch of vanilla and cream. This candle was no exception. It smelled like heaven!!
Time to light my candle!
I started big and lit this candle in my master bedroom to test out. White Barn fragrances are generally strong room fillers for me so why not? Once lit, it look a good hour to reach a full melt pool and the aroma….. YUM!! Sweet and creamy raspberry with swirls of vanilla. Very creamy and realistic. Loved!!
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle a 4 in a large room. 7 in a medium size room and 8 and above in smaller rooms. This was definitely a more subtle aroma.
This candle burned great. Super slow at times with a bit of tunneling at the widest part of the ball shaped jar but with a little help, it did eventually right itself for a clean and even burn.
Closing to my review:
I love Black Raspberry Vanilla and am sad it’s not available anymore… at least for now. I do see it released every so often so when it is in their large 3 wick candles, I’ll definitely be purchasing more. I just hope the large 3 wick version gives a better scent throw.
If you love sweet Raspberry scents, this is a must try. It’s a perfect, sweet and creamy raspberry. This fragrance is also available in Bath & Body Works lotions, body washes and sprays and it’s yummy on your skin as well.
Happy candle hunting!
Burn Performance: 3.5/5
Overall Rating: 3/5
This candle would have rated much higher had the strength and burn performance been better. Regardless, I still loved this scent.
