Sunkissed Bath & Body Works Candle Review
By Christina Rylan
Brand: Bath & Body Works
Type: 14.5oz large 3 wick candle
Fragrance: Sunkissed – Bronzed Goddess
Scent Strength: Medium
First impression of Sunkissed – Bronzed Goddess:
Let’s start off with the scent description:
Shimmering sands, Coastal Amber, Rose Gold Wood, Acacia Flower.
First impression, I don’t know what shimmering sands or rose gold wood smells like, but I could easily detect the amber and the flowery notes of the Acacia Flower pretty clearly. To me, the wax smelled a little like a fresh body splash or light perfume with the floral component quite prominent. It wasn’t tropical or ozone’y but simply fresh with a masculine vibe to it. I don’t know how else to describe this scent to you.
Time to light my candle!
I lit this candle in my master bedroom (my favorite room to burn Bath & Body Works candles in) and waited for the magic to begin. It took a good 20 minutes to reach a full melt pool, but the fragrance was present long before that and the aroma smelled exactly as it did on cold sniff. My bedroom was filled with a soft sort of masculine perfume/body splash scent. Call me crazy but I swear I smelled rubbing alcohol in the mix too. I think that’s why I keep referring to this scent as a body splash. It has that body splash/alcohol kind of scent tied to it. It wasn’t bad, just something I noted right away.
My husband threw in his two cents too. When he walked into our bedroom, he asked if I had just put on perfume. Nope. It was the candle. 😊
Strength – I would rate this candle an 8 out of 10 in a large room. 10 in medium to smaller rooms. Not bad all in all.
How did my candle burn?
This candle burned perfect. No wick issues – YEAH! Clean burning from beginning to end.
Closing to my review:
I did enjoy Sunkissed from Bath & Body Works but not sure enough to purchase again. That happens and it’s nothing against the scent, it’s just a personal choice. I think it was the hint of rubbing alcohol I kept smelling that did it for me. I wasn’t too crazy about that. Still, if you find yourself at a Bath & Body Works store, smell this candle and see what you think. You may agree with me or not. Who knows, you may even love it and that’s the beauty of fragrance. We all have different tastes.
Happy candle hunting!
