Golden Citrus Bath & Body Works Candle Review
By Christina Rylan

Fragrance: Golden Citrus
Scent Strength: Medium
First impression of Golden Citrus:
Let’s start off with the scent description for Golden Citrus:
Sparkling Mandarin, warm cedar, golden amber.
Mmm! What a lovely citrus fragrance this turned out to be. I could smell all the elements in the scent description. The mandarin came first with what I would describe as vanilla, amber and cedar in that order. I know vanilla isn’t listed in the description above but it smelled so creamy and warm, it had to be in there. I loved it. So far, so good.
Time to light this candle!
Bath & Body Works candles are generally strong for me so I took a chance and lit this candle in my master bedroom to start out. Once the wicks were lit, it took the average 20 minutes to reach a full melt pool and the aroma… a very sweet and warm citrus mandarin and amber drifted through my bedroom. I still smelled vanilla in the mix but that could have been the amber component. It was hard to tell. All I can say is, this fragrance is not your average zesty citrus. It’s definitely more sophisticated, smooth and unisex. It’s not really masculine, nor feminine. It’s somewhere right in the middle.
Citrus lovers, if you’re searching for something a little more sophisticated than your average orange scent, this candle has your name written all over it. For those who simply love warm and soothing aromas… this one is for you as well. It had a bit of everything. A fruity citrus with warm notes of soothing amber that smoothed it all out. I really enjoyed this one.
Strength – I would rate this candle a 7 out of 10. 9+ in medium to smaller rooms. This candle wasn’t super strong but gave a nice and steady medium throw.
How did my candle burn?
This candle burned perfect. Zero wick issues. Clean burning from start to finish.
Closing to my review:
I really enjoyed Golden Citrus and will for sure purchase this candle again. It wasn’t your average citrus scent and I think that’s why I loved it. The amber to me really made this scent. It added an elegant flair that gave the overall aroma a soothing vibe. I could totally see this scent in bath & body as well. It would be gorgeous. Definitely check this candle out next time you’re near a Bath & Body Works store.
Happy candle hunting!
