Honolulu Sun 3-Wick Candle Bath & Body Works is probably one of the most successful tropical scents created by the brand, because it instantly took me to Honolulu. The fresh aquatic bouquet that also smells of sunscreen and coconuts – this is the scent that follows you on your tropical beach vacation. When I lit the candle, the warmth and wonder of Honolulu sunshine filled in my room. The happy blend of fresh coconut, Pacific palm and sweet island nectar are ingredients that make this candle so delicious and unique. “Honolulu Sun” is a perfect name for a perfect beach getaway scent. I wish they also had it available as body care products, such as Shower Gel, Body Scrub, Body Lotion and Body Cream. I hope the brand will eventually make that happen.
As for the richness and intensity of the scent, I am a big fan of Yankee Candles, but was surprisingly impressed at the quality and ambiance of this candle. I suspect the brand might have improved the formula because my rather big leaving room was filled with the beautiful scent after only 5 minutes since I started burning this candle. This must be a result of fragrance oils added in their highest concentration. The candle does not burn fast and lasts much longer, as compared to Bath & Body Works candles in the past. This is because it was made using an exclusive blend of vegetable wax and wicks that ensure that candles melt evenly and consistently, radiating enough fragrance to fill an entire room.
I also love the visual presentation of the candle that comes in beautiful, gradually shaded frosted ombré glass that resembles the color of the ocean as it stretches all the way to the horizon, a really tropical touch. The candle burns about 25 to 45 hours, measuring 4 inches wide and 3 1/2 inches tall. I think, the glass container is so esthetically pleasing that after the candle is used, I intend to keep it as a brush holder for my make-up brushes.
