Review Summary:

Rating Breakdown:

  • Packaging/Presentation: Mason style jar candles are not my favorite style. This was a mason style jar with the Barn logo embossed on the outside of the clear  jar. The jar was not perfectly round - it had squared corners. The tag was a Barn matchbook, which was cute/clever. The lid was black tin and had a label on top with the scent name included. The wax was a pale green color, reminiscent of a honeydew melon. The candle had a single, thick wick. 3.5/5
  • Scent: This scent was just Ok to me - I smelled a light, sweet honeydew scent but I didn't get the other notes. Definitely did not smell any watermelon. 2/5
  • Scent Throw: My scent throw was pretty non-existent. I had to stand right over the candle to get a whiff of anything. I did try moving the candle to different locations but I didn't get any better results. 1/5
  • Performance: My candle achieved a full wax melt pool without difficulty. I had a nice clean burn with no visible black sooting. The flame did get pretty big at times and needed close maintenance. This was a slow burning candle. I didn't get anywhere near 120 hours, though. This candle burned for approximately 100 hours. 4/5
  • Customer Service (if applicable): I do not recall specifics of this order, but I have never had a problem when ordering from Barn Candle Company. 5/5
  • Overall rating: 2/5 (Technically 2.3 but rounding down for scent throw.)

Honeydew Granita, Barn Candle Company


This delicious fragrance pairs watermelon and cantaloupe with honeydew to create a refreshing medley.

Comments: This was an ancient candle – at least 5 years old. Although I feel bad about giving this candle a poor rating since it was so old, I have burned numerous candles of similar age that have performed well.

Happy candle burning ~
