CF Best Watermelon Scented Candles

It’s National Watermelon Day! And true to form, we have rounded up nine of the best watermelon scented candles you can buy.

Coastal Watermelon, White Barn

As we’ve mentioned in our prior Coastal Watermelon candle review, this is a scent we would pick up again and in multiple quantities. We absolutely LOVED this fragrance. It is juicy and sweet with just the right amount of saltiness. The strength is a 10/10!

Salted Watermelon, Sophie Rose

If you’re looking for a little less sweet and a little more salty, try this Salted Watermelon candle from Sophie Rose Candle Company. It is so mouthwatering good and delicious, it will have you begging for more!

Sweet Watermelon Buttercream, BH&G

As we’ve mentioned in our prior Sweet Watermelon Buttercream wax melt review, this is YUMMY! It isn’t really a cake or bakery but more of a sweet watermelon (which dominated) blended with hints of creamy vanilla. If you love melon scents, you will love this one. Another 10/10 for scent strength.

Watermelon & Chili, P.F. Candle Co.

Get a little spicy with P.F. Candle Company’s Watermelon & Chili candle. The cool sweetness of the watermelon is balanced with a spicy chili note that is unexpected and divine. We love the added fresh grass notes…it’s like a picnic in a jar!

Watermelon, Pelican Scents

Watermelon melts from Pelican Scents
A sweet, juicy watermelon scent

A fresh, juicy watermelon scent that is perfect for the summer! This wax melt was soooo delicious! It was fresh and sweet and absolutely mouthwatering. It actually had a little bit of green in it to make it smell like a true watermelon scent, as opposed to a piece of candy. Check out the mini review of this watermelon scented wax melt here.

Juicy Watermelon, Yankee Candle

Of course Yankee Candle was going to make the list for the best watermelon scented candles! This one is all sweet and very fruity…at times the watermelon gets lost in the scent of the other notes, but it’s still a great one to try. It’s also pretty strong for a Yankee Candle!

Watermelon Basil, Simpatico

For a sophisticated watermelon scented candle, Watermelon Basil from Simpatico is the one we reach for time and time again. It has more earthiness and green notes with just the right amount of sweet. And it looks soooo pretty during the burn!

Watermelon Patch, Goose Creek

This candle is like eating a slice of juicy watermelon while sitting on a patch of grass after the rain on a picnic. It’s that complex and that realistic…we love it!

Watermelon, A&M Candle Company

Ok, this one gets cool points for looking so adorable. But it doesn’t stop there…this candle smells just like a chunky watermelon slice – sweet and juicy. Yum!
