Scent Strength: Light
First impression of Sweet Spearmint:
Mmm!!! Sweet Spearmint smelled amazing the moment I popped off the lid. I loved it so much, I was seriously tempted to run back to Bath & Body Works to purchase a few more. I liked it that much!
Here is the scent description from the bottom of the candle:
Golden mint leaves, crystalized sugar, cream vanilla.
YES!! I smelled all of the above. All of it, and it smelled really good. Creamy vanilla and mint all the way with sweet sugar blended throughout. I couldn’t wait to light this candle.
Which happens right now!
I lit this candle in my master bedroom and waited impatiently for the aroma to start moving through my room. It took roughly 15 minutes before the scent really started permeating and although it was more of a subtle aroma… I still really liked it. I smelled a creamy and sweet vanilla with the perfect touch of spearmint filtering through my room and it smelled heavenly. The sad part… it was pretty subtle in a large room so a medium to smaller room would be more ideal if you’re after strength.
I must say, most spearmint scents smell like spearmint gum (which I don’t mind) but this was not one of them. To me, Sweet Spearmint was all vanilla with subtle hints of spearmint. Very creamy and soothing.
On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle a 6 in a really large room. 8 and above in medium to smaller rooms. With that said, should I purchase this candle again, I’ll probably stick to a small room to burn it in.
This candle burned perfect. No wick issues. Clean burning from beginning to end.
Closing to my review:
Sweet Spearmint was a nice and soothing vanilla mint that I really enjoyed. I’m just bummed it wasn’t as strong as I was hoping it would be, so keep that in mind should you decide to try this candle. That can happen with certain vanilla scents so I won’t ding this candle too much on strength but still like to point that out in my reviews.
Would I purchase this candle again? Yes. I liked it enough to purchase it again for sure… I’ll just burn it in a smaller room next time to maximize strength.
Don’t see this candle listed on Bath & Body Works website? No worries, try one of their stores instead which tends to carry more scents than their website.
Happy candle hunting!
