Jelly Belly (Wax Lyrical) Bubble Gum Candle | Review

Hello hello hello, and welcome to the second instalment of The Candle Scoop! This time it's a review of the super-sweet Bubble Gum candle from Jelly Belly (although they are actually run by Wax Lyrical). I'm going to start off by saying that I absolutely adore this candle. And I'm about to tell you why.

To start with, how pretty is this packaging? I absolutely adore candles in glass jars, and the lid on this is super cute. Label is also colourful and I just overall love the packaging. My candle lid is a little bit deformed but it makes me love it all the more, for some strange reason. The lid also keeps the scent in the candle longer instead of having it all dry up and disappear, which has happened with candles before.

But what about the throw? Well I have to say, it's fantastic. There's a reason Wax Lyrical are my favourite candle brand; the candle is highly fragranced (well it does say that on the packaging haha) and it fills the whole room quickly. Once put out, the scent lasts a pretty long time, too. I only have one room to fill and the door is always shut, and although the scent is sweet, it's never sickly or overpowering. It hangs in the background with a pleasantly sweet scent. I have absolutely no complaints in regards to the throw. The bubblegum scent is like the blowing bubble gum, synthetic sweet kind. It's very accurate.

The candle is supposed to last around 60 hours, although I can't say for sure whether that's accurate. I've burnt around 10 hours so far and have barely made a dent. The candle burns cleanly with no tunnelling at all. I can't say what the wick is made out of as I can't find it online, but with regular trimmings, the wick is perfect and casts a decent size flame.

Overall I cannot complain whatsoever about this candle. It's absolutely perfect in my eyes, and everyone who loves sweet, bubblegum scents should buy this immediately. Immediately I tell you!

Thank you so much for reading,
