Coconut Water Bath & Body Works Candle Review
By Christina Rylan
Brand: Bath & Body Works
Type: 14.5oz large 3 wick candle
Fragrance: Coconut Water
Scent Strength: Medium
First impression of Coconut Water:
I’m addicted to pretty much everything ‘coconut,’ especially of the tropical sort, so purchasing this candle was a given. The fragrance itself sounded wonderful. When I imagine coconut water, I imagine a very mild but sweet coconut with a hint of cream. Would this candle smell like that? Oh, I hope so! I was so excited to find out!
Here is the scent description from the bottom of the candle:
Coconut Milk, Creamy Vanilla, Pineapple.
Pineapple? I wasn’t expecting that. Smelling the wax, I smelled a fresh and sugary coconut with maybe a hint of pineapple now that I know it’s there. Honestly, this candle kind of reminded me of a few Bath & Body Works tropical fragrances I’ve tried in the past. I’ve often suspected they rename older scents, slap a new label on it and then release it as a new fragrance. Hmm… I wonder?
Time to light my candle!
I lit this candle in my master bedroom to start out and ended up moving it to a medium size room about an hour in. This candle was too light for a large room. Once moved, much better!! From then on out, a fresh and tropical coconut that reminded me more of a fruit smoothie filled my guest bedroom with aroma. The fragrance had a sugary tartness to it that I liked. The pineapple perhaps? Whatever it was, the coconut was loud and clear and I did enjoy it.
Strength – I would rate this candle a 6 out of 10 in a really larger room. 8 in a medium and 10 in a small. It wasn’t super strong but once you find the right room to burn it in, it performs perfectly.
How did my candle burn?
This candle burned great the first half of the candle but once it hit a little past the halfway point, the dreaded wick issue hit. All three wicks fizzled out causing it burn inconsistently. Bummer!
Closing to my review:
I enjoyed Coconut Water but keeping it real, probably not enough to purchase again. The wick issue (when it happens) frustrates me. The scent itself was nice and I do recommend it if you’re a fan of fresh and tart coconut scents. Definitely smell Coconut Water next time you’re in a Bath & Body Works store and see for yourself. Hopefully if you give this candle a try, yours burns better than mine did. ☹
Don’t see Coconut Water listed on Bath & Body Works website? Try one of their stores which tends to carry all their fragrances vs online.
Happy candle hunting!
