Marionberry Wood Wick Candle Review
By Christina Rylan
Brand: Wood Wick
Type: 22oz large candle
Scent Strength: Medium in a small room
First impression of Marionberry:
My son is obsessed with marionberry pies so as soon as I saw this candle, I knew I wanted to review it. I imagined sweet blackberries as the base of this scent loaded with sugar and maybe – hoping – there would be some bakery pie crust in the mix as well.
Here is the scent description I found on the internet:
A sweet and juicy scent bursting with wild berry accord and hints of tart blackberries.
I don’t know what “berry accord” smells like but tart blackberries – check! The wax smelled (minus the pie crust) exactly as I imagined… tart blackberries loaded with sweet sugar. Definitely a nice and fresh fruity scent that had my mouth watering.
I liked it… now let’s see how this candle performs!
I lit this candle in a small bathroom to start out and that’s where it stayed till the last drop of wax. I wanted “strong” and definitely achieved that in a small room. Once the wood wick was lit, it took a good half hour to reach a full melt pool and the aroma… a tart and refreshing berry scent. I smelled tangy raspberries and blackberries drenched in sugar. Loved it!
Strength – This candle wasn’t super strong but did well in a small room. I would rate it an 8 out of 10 in a small room. Not sure I would attempt it in anything larger but that’s up to you if you give this candle a try.
How did my candle burn?
This candle burned perfect!! Clean and even from beginning to end. I did have to trim the wood wick before each lighting but that’s pretty normal with wood wicks in general. (I learned that the hard way.)
Closing to my review:
Have I mentioned how much I love the sound of wood wicks burning? This candle crackled and popped the entire time and it sounds so dang cool!! I don’t think one person in my house doesn’t end up commenting on the sound effects and how much they like it. How can you not? The wick sounds like a subtle kind of cracking blow torch. I love it!
The scent was pretty awesome as well. Sweet blackberries and I swear, raspberries too. It smelled like plump berries drenched in sugar. YUM!! Highly recommend this one to all you berry lovers out there. I’ll definitely be purchasing this one again.
Interested in this candle? A quick internet search will give you the online stores that carry this scent. It’s still available, even at Walmart. Also, did you know Yankee Candle purchased the Wood Wick brand? Yep! Hoping they don’t change anything now that they have. I love Wood Wick and would hate to see this brand changed or ruined. 🙂
Happy candle hunting!
