Peppermint Rosemary White Barn Candle Review
By Christina Rylan

Fragrance: Peppermint Rosemary
Scent Strength: Medium
First impression of Peppermint Rosemary:
Peppermint Rosemary was another score I purchased from the $8.95 Bath & Body Works candle sale in December. Major score because this candle smells AMAZING!! The wax smelled like a sweet and creamy mint and I swear I could smell vanilla. I loved it!!
Here is the scent description from the bottom of the candle:
Fresh peppermint, iced rosemary, eucalyptus.
I don’t see vanilla in the mix above but I’m holding firm I could smell it. There was a sweet and almost creamy element to this scent that I loved. I would say it was the base that kind of bound all the different mints together. I could be imagining that but I don’t think do.
Okay, I loved it. Now let’s see how this candle performs.
I lit this candle in my master bedroom and waited for the minty magic to begin. I’d say it took a good 15 minutes or so before the aroma was traveling through all parts of the room and it was very soothing and wonderful. The rosemary element didn’t really smell like rosemary to me but it was definitely there and more of an herbal mint. Eucalyptus? Maybe, but it was light. To me this scent was peppermint, rosemary (that didn’t smell like rosemary, lol!) with creamy vanilla and lots of sugar. The overall aroma was a sweet sugary mint that kept a smile on my face every time I walked into the room and smelled it. Loved it!
Strength – I would rate this candle a 7 in a really large room. 8 in a medium and maybe a 10 in a small. It wasn’t super strong but gave a perfect medium scent throw.
How did my candle burn?
This candle burned great! No wick issues. YEAH! Clean burning from beginning to end.
Closing to my review:
Loved Peppermint Rosemary and will 100% purchase this candle again next time I see it. I loved minty aromas, especially on the sweeter side and this candle delivered. It actually should have been called Sugar Mint. That’s what it smelled like to me. A soothing mint with lots and lots of sweet vanilla and sugar.
Don’t see this candle listed on Bath & Body Works website? Fret not. Try one of their stores which tends to carry all their current scents vs online. I don’t know why that is but that’s the way it is. And if you don’t see it in stores, wait for its comeback. I will be.
Happy candle hunting!
