Pomelo & Pine White Barn Candle Review
By Christina Rylan
Brand: White Barn
Type: 14.5oz large 3 wick candle
Fragrance: Pomelo & Pine
Scent Strength: Strong
First impression of Pomelo & Pine:
I got lucky and hit a Bath & Body Works store so I could smell this candle before purchasing it. The moment I popped off the lid, aaaaah!! Fresh citrus and pine wafted all around my nose and it was really nice. Pine seemed to dominate and I was perfectly okay with that. The scent was so fresh, I knew my husband was going to approve as well. I was excited to get home and light this baby up!
Here is the scent description from the bottom of the candle:
White pomelo, juicy mandarin, balsam, and cinnamon bark.
First impression… the wax smelled like balsam first. That was the base of this fragrance. Pomelo and mandarin were there but a little more subtle in the background. Cinnamon bark? I didn’t smell cinnamon at all.
Time to light my candle!
I lit this candle in my master bedroom and waited for the magic to begin… 10 minutes later, aaaaaaah!!! Heaven! My entire bedroom smelled like fresh balsam with teeny hints of citrus. My husband loved it too, just like I knew he would. He commented on it within a few minutes of coming home letting me know it smelled like a Christmas tree only a little different and he was right… this candle truly did smell like a fresh Christmas tree and that was definitely the dominating force of this fragrance. The citrus notes came in second and very light to boot. So, you definitely need to be a fan of fresh balsam to really enjoy this candle.
Strength – SUPER strong!! I would rate this candle a 10 in any size room. Loved it!
How did my candle burn?
This candle burned decent the first half of the candle. Second half, the dreaded wick issue struck. One wick fizzled out, then two and then it was the dancing game from then on out trying to keep them all lit at once. Bleh. So over this happening. ☹
Closing to my review:
I loved Pomelo & Pine from White Barn and do recommend it to all you balsam lovers out there. The fragrance was very fresh and uplifting and bonus… a room filler. The only sad part for me was how my candle burned. Hopefully, yours won’t have that issue. I’ll be crossing my fingers for you.
Don’t see this candle listed on Bath & Body Works website? Try one of their stores which tends to carry all their current scents vs online.
Happy candle hunting!
