Coastal Morning White Barn Candle Review
By Christina Rylan
Brand: White Barn
Type: 14.5oz large 3 wick candle
Fragrance: Coastal Morning
Scent Strength: Medium
First impression of Coastal Morning:
I don’t know why but I had this preconceived notion Coastal Morning would be an ozone kind of aroma. Ozone is not exactly my favorite but I do love the brand White Barn so I took the chance on this one. I’m glad I did. When I smelled the wax, a fresh sort of unisex body splash aroma wafted all around me and it smelled very spring and summery.
Here is the scent description for Coastal Morning:
White pomelo, blue lavender, silver cedar.
Those three elements sound like a perfect combo. Pomelo is described as a mild citrusy grapefruit. Lavender is a wonderful herbal/floral component, and cedar is masculine and rustic. I’m already thinking this is going to be a masculine fragrance and I was perfectly happy with that.
Smelling the wax, I could definitely smell the pomelo the most. The base of this fragrance was a creamy sort of citrus. The blue lavender and silver cedar? Hard to tell just based off cold sniff. This is basically one of those fragrances that smelled like a refreshing unisex cologne. A tough one to break down.
Time to light my candle!
I lit Coastal Morning in my master bedroom to start out and that’s where it stayed till the very end. With three wicks, it didn’t take long to reach a full melt pool and the aroma… just as it smelled on cold sniff… a fresh sort of unisex body splash fragrance filled my bedroom with a soft aroma. Some of the consumer reviews for Coastal Morning on Bath & Body Works website describe it as a soft floral but I don’t pick up on floral at all. For me, this scent was pomelo and silver cedar. Blended together created a fresh unisex cologne fragrance.
Strength – I would rate Coastal Morning a 7 out of 10 in a really large room. 10 in medium to smaller rooms. I burned this candle in a large room to test but if you give this one a try, start in a medium room and go from there. This candle wasn’t super strong for me.
How did my candle burn?
Sadly, the dreaded wick issue hit this candle a little after the halfway point. One wick sputtered out, then two and then it was the dancing game to get all three to stay lit. I wish Bath & Body Works would fix this issue once and for all. 🙁 Every candle I purchase from them is a crap shoot.
Closing to my review:
I enjoyed Coastal Morning but keeping it real, these unisex body splash aroma’s Bath & Body Works keeps pumping out are starting to blur into each other for me. I liked this one but it didn’t really “wow” me enough to purchase again. The candle burn performance also played a role in my final opinion as well. Still, if you love fresh unisex aroma’s – go smell this candle next time you’re in a Bath & Body Works store… see what you think. If you give it a try, post back here and let us know what you think.
Don’t see Coastal Morning on Bath & Body Works website? Try one of their stores which tends to carry all their current scents vs online.
Happy candle hunting!
