Lavender Marshmallow Candle Review
By Christina Rylan
Brand: Bath & Body Works
Type: 14.5oz large 3 wick candle
Fragrance: Lavender Marshmallow
Scent Strength: Medium
First impression of Lavender Marshmallow:
I purchased this candle several weeks ago during Bath & Body Works semi-annual sale. I can tell it’s a previously released fragrance but I didn’t care – I was simply excited at the opportunity to finally get one since I hadn’t reviewed it yet. They actually had quite a few bakery scents I nabbed during that sale I’ll be reviewing. Yippeeee!!!!
You wouldn’t think Lavender and marshmallow would be compatible together but for some reason… it is. Lavender is a beautiful floral that can be blended with just about everything and marshmallow smelled amazing with it.
Here is the scent description from the bottom of the candle:
The merging of two unexpected flavors, lavender and marshmallow – make this a mouthwatering blend a special treat.
First impression… herbal lavender is definitely the base to this scent but the marshmallow, oh yes, that was present as well and it added a creamy and sweet element that was hard to resist. This candle smelled like lavender on a bed of fluffy marshmallows and sugar. Mmmm!!!!
I lit this candle in my master bedroom and that’s where it stayed till the last drop of wax. I cannot even begin to tell you how much I enjoyed this fragrance. Just imagine fresh and herbal lavender on a bed of sugary marshmallows. It didn’t smell bakery at first so it’s not a scent I wanted to eat but it still smelled really good. Once the aroma was permeating throughout my bedroom, I changed my mind. I did kind of (sort of) want to eat it. You know why? Because it reversed. My bedroom smelled like sweet marshmallows as the dominating scent with lavender coming in second and it was sweet and simply amazing. I loved it. Every second of it.
Strength – I would rate this candle an 8 out of 10 in a large room. 10 in medium to smaller rooms. Great scent throw.
How did my candle burn?
The first three fourths of the candle – perfect! The last fourth, the wicks did give me some issues. But, I eventually got them to stay lit and it did burn all the way down… it just took some work.
Closing to my review:
Next time Lavender Marshmallow is listed for sale, I’m buying a few. I loved it and for a variety of different reasons. It was different, bakery, sweet, refreshing and herbal all at once. It was a scent that made me stop just to appreciate it. You know you have a winner when that happens.
If you find this candle, smell it and see for yourself. ?
Happy candle hunting!
