Brand: Bath & Body Works
Type: 14.5oz large 3 wick candle
Fragrance: Fresh Mint & Coconut
Scent Strength: Medium
First impression of Fresh Mint & Coconut:
Fresh Mint & Coconut sounded amazing and a fragrance I had a feeling I was going to enjoy. If you’ve read any of my past reviews, you know I love coconut scents… in all forms. I also enjoy mint aromas so this fragrance sounded too intriguing to pass up. I’ve never imagined these two fragrances combined so leave it to Bath & Body Works to pair them together.
Here is the scent description from the bottom of the candle:
Creamy coconut, bright mint leaves, deep sea water.
First impression… I could clearly smell the creamy coconut and mint and it smelled pretty good combined. It was sweet and soothing all at the same time. Deep sea water? Not sure on that one but who knows what this candle will smell like once the wicks were lit.
Time to find out!
I lit this candle in my master bedroom and came back 10 minutes later to an aroma that kind of reminded me of a light body splash. It smelled like perfume, not coconut or mint. Super weird!! Throughout the life of this candle, I went back over and over again to make sure I wasn’t imagining that and, I wasn’t. If going by the scent description… I would have to say this fragrance was more deep sea water (whatever that is) rather than coconut and mint. I didn’t smell coconut, or mint once burning. Total bummer. I do want to point out it was still a pretty scent… it just wasn’t what I was expecting or hoping for.
Strength – I would rate this candle an 8 in a really large room. 10 in medium to smaller rooms. I was happy with the scent throw overall.
This candle burned fine. No wick issues. Clean burning from start to finish.
Closing to my review:
Not going to mince words, I was disappointed with Fresh Mint & Coconut. Those two elements are what I was expecting and that’s not what this candle smelled like. To my nose anyway. Would I purchase this candle again? Probably not, but to keep it positive… I still thought it was a pretty scent if you like fresh body splash kind of scents.
Have you tried this fragrance? What did you think? Would love to get your thoughts. Post below in the comment section.
Happy candle hunting!
