By Christina Rylan
Brand: Slatkin & Co from Bath & Body Works
Type: 14.5oz 3 wick candle
Fragrance: Pineapple Mango
Scent Strength: Medium/Light
What did my candle smell like?
Let’s start off with the scent description:
For me, there’s nothing like the fragrance of sweet pineapple on warm summer days. It’s such a bright and cheery scent and it’s a family pleaser. As soon as I smelled this candle, I smiled in appreciation. It smelled like the sweetest pineapple you want to sink your teeth into. I wasn’t making out mango yet but I’m hoping that comes out once I start burning the candle. Time to find out.
I lit my candle in a large bedroom and it took a good 15 minutes to really start noticing the scent. Once I did…. Mmm!! It smelled like juicy pineapple with hints of sweet mango. The scent however was on the lighter side which surprised me.
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I’d rate this candle a 5 and that was really surprising. Bath & Body Work candles on average usually rate an 8 or higher for me. Not this one. I started it in my master bedroom, my standard room to burn Bath & Body Works candles in and I ended up moving it to a smaller room after the first day. It just couldn’t keep up in a bigger room. I still enjoyed the scent though…. a nice and sweet pineapple.
My candle burned perfect. No wick issues. Clean burn, no wasted wax.
Closing to my review:
I did enjoy this candle but not sure enough to purchase it again. I liked it but I didn’t love it. I also don’t think it was one of Bath & Body Works best as far as tropical scents go. I think had the scent throw been stronger, I would probably praise it more. But with so many other great tropical scents they carry, this one was just okay and didn’t really stand out to me.
You on the other hand might love it if you love pineapple scents. Next time you’re in a store and they have one available… go smell one.
Happy candle hunting!
