Review: Bath and Body Works Sparkling Icicles candle

I recently posted a review of a candle I picked up when I was in Hawaii, the Bath and Body Works Snow Day candle. I have really been enjoying the sweet scent! Another candle that I picked up while I was there is the Bath and Body Works Sparkling Icicles candle. This has a fresher, less sweet scent, and is a nice contrast to the Snow Day candle.

What it does: (description as written an the container)
As sparkling as the ice at the local skating pond, this fragrance features a citrus bouquet, bergamot and a touch of holiday moss. 

Price:
Bath and Body Works candles are $20 for the 3-wick candles (14.5 oz, lasts 25-45 hrs), $10 for the small candles (4 oz, lasts 20-30 hrs), $4.50 for the mini candles (1.3 oz, lasts 10-15 hrs). Bath and Body Works typically has some kind of sale going on, so be sure to take advantage of it!

Scent:
The main scent in this product is bergamot. It smells citrusy, but without the sharp sting that you get from lemon. It also smells a little woodsy. The smell of the candle itself is very similar to the scent after you light it.

Availability:
Bath and Body Works products are available at Bath and Body Works stores, and at Bath and Body Works online.

Pros:

  • The scent is very comfortable without being overly sweet or flowery. This was a great scent for my bedroom as well as my living room, and could be accepted by many people.
  • This candle burns clean except for about 5 mm at the bottom of the container after the wick burns out.
  • This candle has a very pretty light blue color, which melts into a dark blue wax. 

Cons:

  • Somehow, I didn’t feel attached to this candle at all. I guess because it is similar to other home fragrances that I use, it did not feel special to me. 

Would I repurchase? Maybe. I am really surprised by this candle – I thought that since I really like the scent, it would be more memorable. It seems I need to change my scents regularly.

Hope you enjoyed this review!

xoxo, K
