What did my candle smell like?
Being that I’m a huge fan of White Barn Candles as well as my love for coconut scents… I couldn’t resist purchasing this candle. Have you tried any of White Barns mahogany scents? Oh my goodness, if you haven’t, you’re missing out… they are amazing and this fragrance was no exception. Mahogany to me is so romantic and sensual and White Barn knows how to create blends using it. And strong… holy cow do these fragrances tend to be strong. Just to give you an example, I have this candle sitting next to me with the lid off as I write this intro and the fragrance from just the wax alone is filling the room with aroma – and it’s not even lit. That’s pretty impressive.
Here is the scent description from the bottom of the candle:
A sophisticated blend of rare mahogany and creamy coconut milk layered over soft sandalwood.
Mmmmm!! Smelling the wax for the first time… serious sophistication and deliciously masculine. I smelled warm mahogany and sandalwood with hints of coconut in the background. Moan!! I loved it but still hoping the creamy coconut milk comes to life a little more once the candle is burning.
Time to find out!!
I lit this candle in my master bedroom (a pretty large room) and waited for the magic to begin. Within a few minutes of lighting the wicks, the fragrance was already traveling through the room. Within 20 minutes, it was room saturation. A little after that, the fragrance from spilling outside my bedroom into the rest of my home. Basically, this candle dominated the entire upper level of my home and I ended up turning off the melts I had going in my great room. Nothing else could compete.
The fragrance…. beautiful!! Rich mahogany and sandalwood with teeny hints of coconut in the background. I would have liked an even balance of coconut and mahogany but I think anything against mahogany doesn’t stand a chance. Regardless, I loved every moment of it.
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, this candle is a 15!! It’s THAT strong!! Room saturation, wow strong!! Loved it!!
My candle burned great till it got halfway down the candle. I don’t know why the wicks start fizzling out with some of these candles at the halfway point but it’s pretty consistent when it does happen. It starts with one wick extinguishing and then a second one forcing me to play the relight game and trying to keep them all going. Sometimes I win, sometimes I lose. With this candle, I actually won and it ended up righting itself for a clean burn, no wasted wax.
Closing to my review:
This was a near perfect experience aside from the wick issues I had. And even though that happened, I’ll still purchase this candle again before it’s gone… I liked it that much. If you love sophisticated and romantic fragrances that are on the masculine side, this is an excellent fragrance to burn… especially if you love super strong candles.
White Barn Candles can only be found at Bath & Body Works so if you’re interested in this brand, you’ll have to go to Bath & Body Works. In stores or through their website.
Happy candle hunting!
