Introduction to my White Barn candle review…
White Barn Candle Co. are candles I’ve always wondered about and sniffed at every opportunity but have never purchased any until recently. With review gear at “full speed ahead” – I’m all about purchasing every candle I can get my hands on lately…. especially these bigger and popular companies.
White Barn Candles can be purchased at any Bath & Body Works store or on their website online. They hold the exclusive on this brand so if you’re on the hunt for a specific scent, you’ll have to ask them. Cold sniff on all their candles, YUM!! It was hard deciding which candles to purchase first. I wanted them all.
I’ll be reviewing two candles from their True Temptations line. Mint Chocolate Chip Ice-cream & Cinnamon Cappuccino. Both candles smelled absolutely incredible on cold sniff. I had to have these.
What did my White Barn Candles look like?
The candles are classy and very modern. They’re cylinder frosted jars with flat chrome lids. The label on the face of the candle says True Temptations. It’s really cute, on all the True Temptations labels, it says 100% flavor, 0 calories. Another nice feature is there is a little arrow on the bottom right hand corner of the label allowing you to remove it easily. There are three wicks which I thought was awesome. The more wicks, the better burn in my opinion. Both candles had white wax.
How did my candles from White Barn smell?
Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream:
This was a yummy fragrance and if any of you reading this like the fragrance of mint chocolate, you have GOT to try this one! It’s an excellent scent that I burned down to the nubbins. Where do I begin? It was the perfect scent for me. Nice rich chocolate with smooth mint blended to perfection. I love chocolate and mint, I could eat a bag of Andes mints all by myself. It’s the kind of candy you let melt in your mouth because it’s so cool, smooth and delicious. That’s what this scent reminded me of. The scent description on Bath & Body Works website for this fragrance is:
“Inspired by the scent of smooth, minty ice cream dotted with rich chocolate.”
The scent throw on this candle was awesome. I burned it in my great-room and the fragrance was everywhere and strong but not overpowering. The air had a nice minty feel which I love about mint candles and the chocolate mixed with it was to die for. I loved it, there’s nothing more to say. I should have bought a few more, that’s how much I liked it.
I absolutely LOVED this fragrance! Loved it, loved it, loved it!!!! I enjoy burning coffee scents and let me tell ya, this is THE best coffee fragrance I’ve tried yet. It smells incredible, like sweet sugary cinnamon cappuccino you would smell in your favorite coffee house. As soon as I smelled this candle in the B&BW store, I grabbed two and now after burning it, I wish I would have grabbed a dozen, seriously! This has become my new favorite coffee scent.
I checked on the B&BW site and Cinnamon Cappuccino is not listed there but I know the stores carry it since I just saw it the other day. The scent throw on this candle is awesome and very strong. After I lit my candles, I started to notice the fragrance right away although it did take about 20 minutes for it to completely saturate my entire upper level and boy is it fantastic. Once my candles were burning for awhile, I was in absolute heaven and couldn’t get enough of this fragrance.
I thought I was sick of cinnamon but this candle has given “cinnamon” new meaning. Blended with the cappuccino, it’s perfect and I think, the exact fragrance all those people on those old Folgers commercials must have woken up to because, this scent rocks!! Try one, you won’t be sorry.
How did my White Barn Candles burn?
On a scale of 1 to 10, I rate burn performance on both candles a 6, maybe a 7. The wicks were the issue with my candles. When I first lit both candles, all 3 flames on both burned to little nubs and stayed that way for hours. I thought they were defective but I let them burn their course and they finally started burning normal with a normal size flame. I burned these candles to the absolute bottoms and not once did I ever have to trim the wicks. I also couldn’t use my wick dipper to extinguish the flames like I normally do. The wicks were stiff and wouldn’t bend so I had to blow them out. Both candles did burn clean with no leftover wax at all.
Closing to to my White Barn Candle review:
Loved these candles. Love them!! I found a new favorite coffee scent and loved the Mint Chocolate Chip one as well. These were great scented candles.
White Barn Candles are found exclusively at Bath & Body Works. What scents they carry vary so when you see or smell a candle you love, especially White Barn, buy it! Who knows when or if it will ever return. You cannot go wrong with either of these scents. I hope Bath & Body Works carries them forever. I enjoyed them that much.
Happy candle burning!

i'm loving how the cinnamon cappuccino sounds! i usually get somewhat tired of cinnamon-y laced scents towards the end of the holiday/winter season...but i don't recall trying a coffee-esque candle, ever. this sounds amazing (and something my coffee loving husband could get down with too :p)
