Review: Bath & Body Works Slatkin & Co. Mint Chocolate Candle
Posted June 14, 2011on:
Semi-sweet chocolate, dark cocoa and peppermint with vanilla cream and white chocolate.
- Highly fragranced candle exclusively developed and tested by our team of
Home Fragrance experts, including the world’s best master perfumers
- Made using the highest concentration of fragrance oils, an exclusive blend
of vegetable wax and lead-free wicks for optimal performance
- Single-wick candle burns 25-50 hours
- 2 3/4″ wide x 2 1/2″ tall
Packaging: Same packaging as all the other candles excepts the sticker has a picture of a chocolate-y dessert with mint shavings and the candle itself is a pretty light green shade as you can see from the photos. 113g/4 oz amounts to (KD4/500) purchased when they first opened up shop in the Avenues. Burn time is between 25-40 hours.
Scent: This is my favorite ice-cream flavor so of course I had to get this and I’m so glad I did. In the store (Avenues), I could only detect the mint but when I burned this back home, and the vanilla scent kicked in, WOW! It smelled so good I almost wanted to eat it. After the first time I burned it, even when it wasn’t lit, all I had to do was take off the lid and my room would smell like brownies meaning ”Mint Chocolate” smells great, lit or non-lit. It’s also a hit with friends and family. Everyone loves this scent. What makes it interesting is that besides the vanilla and chocolate which are normal food-y scents, is the mint which saves the overall fragrance from being too generic. Overall, I think this is a pretty unique scent and I’m pleased with this purchase.
Repurchase? Yes, please! Next time I go to B&BW, I will be getting a few more of “Mint Chocolate” candles in the largest size they have because it smells interesting if not unique and lovely and wonderful and amazing.
