Introduction to my review:
I remember the good ol’ days when you could walk into a White Barn store in a mall and sniff away to your hearts content. I always walked away with a good dozen or more each time but sadly, all their stores closed and they moved their fragrances to Bath & Body Works. That was fine but their scent list definitely dwindled down when that happened.
While browsing through my candle stash not long ago, I found a *really* old White Barn candle in my candle cabinet… remember the old original honey-pot style they carried? That’s the one I found. I couldn’t believe I hadn’t burned it so I pulled it out and decided to use it up. My initial thought…it wouldn’t be very strong considering it had to be a good 8 years old… at the very least. Boy was I wrong… this candle was SO strong, it was overpowering every other scent I had going in my home. I was so impressed, I decided to review it!
What did my candle smell like?
“Crisp, fruity blend of ginger, limes, oranges and apples.”
This scent is absolutely AMAZING!!!!!! I wasn’t really making out oranges or apples… to me, this scent was pure lime and sugar. I love citrus fragrance and oh my goodness was this candle absolutely perfect.
I lit this candle in my master bedroom thinking it would just be okay and I swear to you, within 5 minutes flat, I started noticing the aroma. Within 10 minutes, total room saturation! SOOOOOO strong and this candle only had one wick and didn’t even have a full melt pool yet. WOW!! The aroma was sweet and zesty lime. LOVED!!
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this an 11. In was THAT strong.
My candle burned perfect. Very slow burning… clean and even burn. A+.
Closing to my review:
I highly recommend White Barn Candles. I don’t think I’ve ever purchased a dud. Ever.
Happy candle hunting!
Burn Performance: 5/5
Overall Rating: 5/5

so sad to find out they don't carry this anymore! a super strong scent throw is one of the most important things to me when i determine whether or not i purchase a candle so it's amazing this scored an 11 on your scale :D. plus when it comes to citrus scents, i love burning them in my kitchen but usually opt for a lemon candle. i've never tried lime anything but this makes me want to.
