Canary Island Banana is a World Journey scent that I have been holding on to for a few years now. My sister and her fiance gave me this coveted two-label candle about 3-4 years ago.
Well, seeing as it got to 60 degrees over the weekend here in Maryland, I felt it was tropical enough to finally try it!
The Scent: A wonderful creamy banana scent. It reminds me of the banana Runt candies I loved as a kid. It is pure banana and really transports you to a tropical island! A
The Throw: I was shocked by how good this throw was. The cold sniff is pretty faint, so I did not have high expectations. But the lit throw is easily a medium and fills up my living room! It’s not a ‘blow your socks off’ throw, but it is definitely smellable from anywhere you sit in the room it’s lit! A-
To be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever come across another purely banana scent. Canary Island Banana is unique as a candle, but familiar as a scent!
And for those of you who like reading the second-label story: “Escape to La Palma, the greenest of Spain’s Canary Islands, where forests and banana plantations create a quiet, relaxed Eden that’s reflected in the sweet, creamy aroma of luscious Canary Island bananas.”
