WoodWick Nautical Escape Trilogy Candle Review

December 13, 2016
woodwick candles review

WoodWick has some very unique candles in their collections. Obviously, the wood wicks set them apart on their own, but when you see their Ribbonwick or Hearthwick lines you will see just how different they can be. The candle we bought to do this review was from their Trilogy line. These candles use their traditional recycled wood wicks but are layered with multiple scents. The scent we chose was the Nautical Trilogy Candle which is comprised of the trio of scents: Tropical Oasis, Sand & Driftwood, and At the Beach. We chose this one after reading some reviews done by others on Amazon for the individual scents and we wanted to see how all three worked for ourselves.

Review Rundown:

Is it Scent-sational?
The scent begins with a slightly fruity fragrance with hints of coconut and as it burns down to the other layers it began to get more of a musky smell to it. The combination worked great together as a fresh ocean-side scent that juggled hints of various other scents throughout its burn. One of the better Trilogy scent combinations and an overall good scent. 7/10

Fragrance Intensity:
Candles from Woodwick never give off an intense amount of fragrance but that doesn’t mean they don’t throw scent either. I love putting these candles in bedrooms as they can fill up small – medium sized rooms quite well. It was a good amount of scent and not too much for those that get headaches from candles that are too intense.

Presentation:
WoodWick Candles, especially the ‘Trilogy’ candles look great. They have a unique hourglass-like shape to them and are topped with a wooden lid that has a rubber inner seal that holds in the fragrance when not in use. This lid also acts as a nice stand to display the candle on when burning it.

These candles use a crossed wooden wick that gives off a distinct crackle when burned and a slightly larger candle flame because of it’s size. As for the crackle sound, we had people that either loved it or hated it. To some, it sounded more like static and some people including some other reviewers on Amazon found it to be a bit of an annoyance.

Burn Quality and Longevity:
No complaints on burn quality with these candles. The wooden wick produces enough flame that the candle never began to tunnel and created an even full melt pool within an hour. The candle did burn fairly quickly and we found the 100-hour estimation to be slightly exaggerated to what we observed but only by about 10 hours or so.

Cost and Value:
At $25.98 for the 10 oz candle that works out to about $2.6 per ounce. For reference, that is about double the price per ounce of Yankee candles but still a mid-range price.

Other Notes:
WoodWick also has some truly unique wick types with some of their candles including their ribbon wick candles as well as their hearth wick candles.

    How unique! I’ve never seen wood wicked candles and think the crackling sound would be a nice accompaniment to a burning candle – definitely an attention-grabber.
