Introduction to my review:
White Barn Candles are definitely one of my favorite brands from Bath & Body Works. When I see them… I don’t even hesitate… I just buy. This brand is so consistent with amazing fragrances that are super strong. Love! I don’t think I’ve ever purchased a White Barn candle that was a dud… can you tell I like them?
With Fall in full swing… Cranberry Woods was calling my name. I love cranberry scents and the scent description for this fragrance proclaims fall loud and clear.
My candle was their large 14.5oz 3 wick candle. The glass was a dark burgundy with a simple decorative white label that had the “White Barn” insignia at the top with the scent name “Cranberry Woods” in the center. Very simple but classic and elegant. No lid came with this candle… just a paper insert covering the wax that had a picture of a cranberry wreath.
What did my candle smell like?
Let’s start off with the scent description from the bottom of the candle:
“Fresh, tart cranberries, black currant and warm cinnamon bark combine in a delightful fragrance inspired by the magic of the woods during the harvest time.”
Smelling the wax for the first time… it smelled like the quintessential fall fragrance… a smoky kind of fall/woodsy scent with hints of cranberries. I wasn’t really detecting cinnamon or fresh currant on cold sniff but I was hoping that would come out once the wax warmed up.
I stuck to a large room to burn this candle in and as I hoped… it performed perfectly. It took about 20 minutes or so to start noticing the scent and oh my goodness was it perfect. Crisp cranberries blended with woodsy spices. It was warm and cozy and perfect. My hubby even commented on it letting me know he liked it.
Strength – this candle gave the perfect scent throw. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rat this an 8. It saturated my bedroom with fragrance and traveled beyond the room as well. It wasn’t overpowering… it was just right. Highly recommend this fragrance for fall and winter.
This candle burned perfect the first half of the candle. Once it hit midway, the wicks started fizzling out and it struggled from then on out. It finished but it was slow and took some work.
Closing to my review:
I really enjoyed Cranberry Woods and will definitely purchase one again before winter ends. I wish the burn performance would have been better but I’m hoping it won’t happen again. We’ll see…
Happy candle hunting!
