Our Review of the Holly Berry Balsam Candle

Cold sniff:  Instantly fell in love with this one at the store.  There was a sweet fruit note from the candle, more citrus than cranberry.  Then there was a pine scent that really added to the overall scent.  

Lit Scent: Once lit, this fragrance really popped.  The juicy fruit note was stronger than the pine scent, but the two played off each other very well.  

Scent Throw & Strength: Scent throw  &strength was a solid 8.  This is a strong candle that filled the house quickly. You could pick up the scent from this candle minutes after lighting it, and once it fully pooled, it was strong.  

Final Thoughts: This is a really nice scent.  This candle is tied with “Tis the Season” as my favorites among the Bath & Body holiday scents.

What Others are Saying About the Bath & Body Works Holly Berry Balsam Candle

YouTube user Tinadivalicious thought that Holly Berry Balsam was a repackage of Merry Mistletoe, but was disappointed to find out the scents were different. He said that Holly Berry Balsam was missing the sweet fruit (citrus) juice note that Merry Mistletoe had.  He said it wasn’t a bad scent, just not up to par with past B&BW candles.
