Fragrance: Sunset Beach
Scent Strength: Strong
Introduction to my review:
If you havenâ€™t been too inspired with Bath & Body Works candles this summerâ€¦ you arenâ€™t alone. I havenâ€™t been really â€œwowedâ€ this year myself. Maybe itâ€™s part annoyance when they launch a scent and you have a few weeks (if that) to buy it and then POOFâ€¦ itâ€™s gone when you want more. Call me spoiled but I like accessibility. Or, my other pet peeve – burn performance. The majority of candles Iâ€™ve been burning this year are still having wick issues.
On a happier noteâ€¦ there is a gem to be had for fruity/tropical scented lovers. Sunset Beach is my latest acquisition from Bath & Body Works and Iâ€™m definitely going back for moreâ€¦ this scent is tropical, sweet and very summery.
Size – 14.5oz – large 3 wick candle. The wax color was pure white.
This candle is really pretty. The glass is frosted white instead of clear glass and has a paper type cover that sits over the wax instead of a standard lid. There is no label on the candle at all so the paper cover serves as the label – which shows a surfer on a beach at sunset. Very nicely doneâ€¦ see picture for visual reference.
What did my Sunset Beach candle smell like?
Letâ€™s start off with the scent description from Bath & Body Works website:
First impressionâ€¦ the wax smells very tropical and sweetâ€¦ like a tropical smoothie drink you want to sip by the pool.. And interestinglyâ€¦ there was a different scent description on the bottom label of the candleâ€¦ it reads:
â€œThe sweet fragrance of easygoing days at the beach filled with fruit pops, sugarcane and sunny days.â€
Hmmmâ€¦ which to go by? After burning this candle a full dayâ€¦ I like the second description bestâ€¦ fruit pops and sugarcane. This scent (cold sniff) didnâ€™t really smell like pineapple. It smelled fruity but nothing my nose could pinpoint directly. Fruit Popsâ€¦ for sure. This is a scent you can sink your teeth into. Itâ€™s fruity and sweetâ€¦ refreshing and very summery.
Scent throw – on a scale of 1 to 10, Iâ€™d rate this a 7. It wasnâ€™t â€œin your faceâ€ strong but I definitely noticed it the moment I walked into my large bedroom.
My candle burned PERFECT!! Thank goodness! No drowning wick issues with this candle. The flames stayed nice and strong from beginning to end. I even had to trim all three wicks a few times. A+ on burn performance.
I really enjoyed Sunset Beach. It was a light and summery tropical scent that freshened up my bedroom perfectly. I liked it enough to purchase it again (on sale.)
The only negative I can add to this review and it’s a small oneâ€¦ with three wicks, these candles burn really fast. When I review a candle, I burn it from beginning to end and although this candle burned perfectlyâ€¦ it just didnâ€™t last very long.
If you love tropical scents, definitely try Sunset Beach and you better hurryâ€¦ this is a seasonal scent and may be gone before you know it. With candles at Bath & Body Worksâ€¦ you need to be quick.
Happy candle hunting!
