Review: Candles from the Keeping Room's Tiki Beach

I wouldn't be summertime without some sort of coconut.
Lots and lots of coconuts.
You put da lime in da coconut, you know, things like that.
How stinkin' cute is that mold?!
Anywho, Tiki Beach is Candles from the Keeping Room's take on the popular Bath & Body Works scent.
...and it does a pretty good job as a dupe!
On its own, this scent could be stronger, but it's pretty freakin' similar to the candle! The throw is decent, too. This is a very rich coconut scent that reminds you or tropical islands and suntan. Aloha, friends!!

Candles from the Keeping Room's Tiki Beach
Cold Rating5.5/10; now, the reason this is lighter on the cold side of things is because of paraffin, I believe. Sometimes, Carol's tarts are super strong on cold sniff, sometimes they are light on cold but throw really well. It's a paraffin gamble, really!
Lit Rating7/10; fabulous coconut experience, especially when paired with the Tiki Beach candle in another room. Great scent, very summery!
Throw Rating7.5/10; very good throw, considering the source. Sometimes, strictly coconut scents can be lighter, but this was excellent.
Overall Rating6.5/10; summer (finally) winding down (not really but one can hope). Still wanting to melt coconut scents. MUST FINISH PROJECT WAX BOX. Annoyed that it's taken me so long. No more coconut scents left. All project wax and no coconut makes Lolo Moon Man.


  1. You are the cutest!
    I'm burning my Tiki Beach 3 wick in my master bath right now, I really like it!
    I love how these dupes are so spot on most of the time!

    1. The 3-wick in Tiki Beach was amazing this year! It performed so well, I hope you're having a similar experience.
      Most of the times, vendors have amazing dupes! It's crazy how we can get the scent for less other places. Something about burning candles, though...I need the ambience!
