Exhilarating Pineapple from GC was strong, juicy, and sweet. Fresh with that bit of tartness/sour element that pineapple can take on. It was more of a pure pineapple scent, though I did get elements of the vanilla bean that kept this from being a very harsh scent.
The exhilarating aroma of a peaceful paradise. This pineapple scent is cool and sweet with sugar water, tart lemon, sliced pineapple, and vanilla bean.
Island Pineapple from CC was a completely different animal. Here, the florals took center stage and I was completely overwhelmed. The tropical florals were heady and when paired with a strong, acidic pineapple scent it was too bold for me…and I don’t say that often!
Sail away with a flawless blend of hibiscus, gardenia, and pineapple.
While GC’s Exhilarating Pineapple was pretty strong, it was not nearly as strong as Island Pineapple from CC. Island Pineapple was also more floral/fruity whereas Exhilarating Pineapple was essentially fruity (with added vanilla notes) and more sweet. Of the two, I preferred Exhilarating Pineapple. I think I would have liked Island Pineapple more if I used fewer cubes (2 as opposed to 3) and used it in a more wide, open space.
Have you tried either Exhilarating Pineapple from Goose Creek Candles or Island Pineapple from Colonial Candle? What are your thoughts?
Happy candle burning ~
