Sweet, fruity candles remind me of the spring. They’re a great contrast compared to the heavier scents that are popular during the winter and fall.
A lot of people have been recommending that I try the Slatkin & Co. Pineapple Mango Candle.
I bought it last year and then tucked it away with the rest of my scented-candle collection until now.
I’ve been enjoying how it’s a happy scent that really fills the room.

Slatkin & Co. Pineapple Mango Candle Review
The Pineapple Mango Candle by Slatkin & Co. is a fresh, fruity fragrance that’s sweet and slightly sharp.
It’s easy to smell the blend of pineapple and mango. While I thought it smelled pleasant, to me, it didn’t smell exactly like sweet, ripened fruit. It was really, reallllly close, though, which is why I gave it a check mark for that claim.
The notes of lotus and vanilla are detectable, but they take a backseat to the main fragrant stars.
Overall, I think the combination really works to create a playful scent that makes you think about the spring.
The Slatkin & Co. Pineapple Mango Scented Candle has a great scent throw. After maybe 5-10 minutes of lighting the wicks, my medium-sized room was filled with the scent! I’m very happy with this!
The wicks held a steady, strong flame for hours, so the wax was able to pool from one end to the other evenly and cleanly.
There wasn’t any tunneling, so I’ll be able to use up more of the wax.
Since I bought this candle last year, it still has the old packaging. When you go into Bath & Body Works stores or on the website, you’ll notice that the design’s different. The scent should be the same.
I like the label design on my candle. It shows the pineapple lying on its side, just chillaxing without a care in the world. (For some reason, whenever I look at it, I think of it basking in the sun on a hammock.)
Since Bath & Body Works products go on sale all the time, I’ve never actually bought anything from them for the full price!
If you really like this candle, they have a 2 for $20 USD sale going on now on their website, and the sales in their US and Canadians stores are fairly frequent, too, so I suggest waiting for one before making a purchase.
The Slatkin & Co. Pineapple Mango Candle comes back every year right before spring and then sticks around until the summer or so.
If you’re interested in this candle, you still have plenty of time to get hold of it, and so far, I haven’t heard anything about the fragrance being discontinued, so it should be easy to find.
Final Verdict: 7.5/10
When you smell the Slatkin & Co. Pineapple Mango Candle, you’ll start thinking about warmer days and maybe even sipping on a tropical drink. It’s delicious-smelling! 🙂
