Our Review of the Bath & Body Works Chestnut & Clove Candle

Cold sniff: A light scent on cold.  I definitely pick up the cedarwood & clove.  I get subtle hints of chestnuts in the background, but I find it to be a secondary note.

Lit: The cedarwood intensifies once lit.  It really becomes the dominate note.  The clove is very strong as well, and adds a bit of spice to the overall fragrance.  I find this to be a masculine scent, reminiscent of a campfire.  Very warm & heavy, which makes it a pretty good candle for a cold winter night.  

Scent Throw & Strength: Strong scent & great throw.  Filled the main room of our home in about 30 minutes after lighting.  I was concerned it wouldn’t be that strong after smelling it on cold, but it’s really strong. Scent strength is a solid 9 (borderline 10) and the throw is an 8.

Final Thoughts: While not my favorite Bath & Body Works holiday release, Chestnut & Clove is still a pretty good candle.  It’s been re-released many different times, so it must be a popular scent among B&BW fans.  If you like campfire/fireplace scented candles then you will really like this one. If you don’t like heavy scents, then I would advise against this candle.
