Official Bath & Body Works Scent Description:

Our Review of the Bath & Body Works Banana Split Milkshake Candle
Whether this banana is indeed extinct remains a debate online. But what’s not debatable is the popularity of the Bath & Body Works summer 2018 candle release Banana Split Milkshake. After seeing the overwhelming social media response, I decided to pick up one of these candles and I’m glad I did.
Cold Sniff: On cold, the Banana Spilt Milkshake candle reminded me of Banana Laffy Taffy candy. I didn’t get any notes of chocolate or cherry on cold, but did get a slight hint of vanilla (or cream). The banana note was very candy-like. It was nice and sweet, but I wondered if I wanted my whole house to smell like this scent.
Lit Scent: Once lit, the banana notes I got on cold came through nicely. The light creaminess I detected on cold provided a nice balance to the sweet banana scent. I thought I noticed a slight hint of chocolate, but I can’t say for sure. I can say that there was no cherry notes either on cold or once lit. The banana note was strong when I first lit this candle, but died out a bit on subsequent lightings.
Scent Throw & Strength: I would rate both the scent throw and strength as a 7.5. It was medium-strong, which was perfect for this candle fragrance. I probably wouldn’t like the Banana Spilt Milkshake candle if it was any stronger. As with most Bath & Body Works candles, the throw was very nice and traveled throughout the main floor or our home.
Final Thoughts: The Bath & Body Banana Spilt Milkshake candle really lived up to the hype. I thought it was a very nice scent, perfect for spring & summer. I would highly recommend purchasing this candle, but I sense it will be long gone by mid-summer. If it is re-released, don’t hesitate to stock up on this scent.
