Bath & Body Works Pineapple Pound Cake 3 Wick Candle Review: Hi guys, let’s talk about Pineapple Pound Cake Candle by BBW. I love fresh pineapple juice. I am not a very fruity-scents person yet I enjoy fruit juices, specially pineapple and orange juice. So when I came across this candle on Bath and Body Works India’s website, although I was unsure, I had to pick it up just to try because Bath and Body works is known for infusion amazing fresh fruity fragrances in their candles.
I am going to cover all my Bath and Body works candles in the coming weeks. If you have any suggestion, please comment and I’d love to try them out.

In Detail Bath & Body Works Pineapple Pound Cake 3 Wick Candle Review and My Experience
The Bath and Body Works Pineapple pound candle comes in the signature BBW transparent glass jar with a reflective metallic lid. When I hear pound cake, first thing that comes to my mind is the bread loaf cake which we get in every next door bakery in India. But then, the prints on the label, it does not make sense to me. Its like a jelly blob with a flower on its head! WHY?
The candle wax itself is beige in colour. It burns quite nice. The burn is even and once I trim the wicks before every burn, there is no spluttering of burnt wick particles. There is minimal smoke which is seen while putting it off.
How does Bath and Body Works Pineapple Pound Cake Smell?
Bath and Body Works describes the smell of Pineapple Pound Cake as – “Fresh Pineapple, Sweet Vanilla Pound Cake, Sprinkled with Powdered Sugar with Natural Essential Oils”. This candle smells of very prominent pineapples. I am talking about really concentrated tart pineapple syrup.
The pineapple smell is so on your face and sour, I almost feel like returning the candle. There is vanilla element as well but its overshadowed by the strong pineapple. I unfortunately do not notice any obvious sweetness.
Like I said, I usually like fresh pineapple – cut as well as juice, but here the pineapple smell is unusually tart. Its almost kind of overwhelmingly unpleasant. When I smelled the candle cold, I was disappointed and I thought it may smell different when I burn it. But No! That sour pineapple smell remained as it is.
Apart from the smell, the performance was decent. Like the burn and throw and very good. I actually burned this just once for 3 hours and that it for this candle I guess. I am not a fan of how this smells and I am probably going to give this to someone who might care for it. So if you’re someone who really really loves pineapple smell in every single way, then you may enjoy it. In fact I strongly suggest checking out this candle in store because you can smell it before purchasing.

PROs of Bath & Body Works Pineapple Pound Cake 3 Wick Candle
- Quality wise the candle is very good. This is one of the candles with super good throw.
- After putting off the candle, the smell lingers round for many hours.
CONs of Bath & Body Works Pineapple Pound Cake 3 Wick Candle
- The smell isn’t appealing to my nose.
- Expensive when purchased outside USA/Canada.
- Its always better to buy “scented” items in person from a store if you have that option.
- I wish BBW in India had the option of easy returns as they do in USA/Canada because these candles are really expensive and by chance if you don’t like the smell, you still can’t do anything about it because here, they don’t take returns.
4/5 (Ignoring the fact that I cannot stand the tart pineapple smell.)
