|How did Kathy Ireland Crumb Cake candles smell?|
Vanilla Cream Crumb Cake
Mmmmmm, I love the smell of creamy vanilla scents, especially bakery ones!! This candle smelled SO yummy and so bakery, I could barely stop sniffing the candle unlit!! This scent is described as:
I don’t know how to describe this scent other than it really is a delicious vanilla bakery scent. I even think you could get away with calling this a vanilla sugar cookie. It was very creamy, smooth and utterly comforting. The scent throw was light to medium. This isn’t an “in your face” fragrance but still nice and one you can detect the moment you walk into the room.
My only beef is that I could only burn through 2 inches of this candle before the wicks pooped out. Didn’t matter what I did, I even tried dumping a ton of wax and although that worked right after I did it, it was short term. I even lit the duplicate candle I bought in this scent thinking it was a fluke and nope, the second one did it too. I was super-duper bummed because I really loved this scent!!
Cranberry Orange Crumb Cake
I normally don’t care for fruity type bakery scents… they just don’t agree with me but for some reason, I liked this scent. Cold sniff produced a warm bakery flavor with a touch of fruit. Normally, fruity/bakery scents tend to smell fake to me so I usually steer clear of those. I think I liked this one because the cake part seemed way more prominent. I couldn’t find a scent description for this scent so I’m gonna have to wing it, sorry. I hate doing that since having a scent description helps me break down what I’m smelling. Winging it and trying to explain to you what I’m smelling isn’t an easy task sometimes.
So, Cranberry Orange Crumb Cake! What did it smell like? Well, it smelled like a fruit cake. LOL!! I couldn’t really smell any orange… to me, this scent was all cranberry cake and it was nice. It didn’t smell fake or synthetic… I found it to be a sweet-cakey-cranberry scent.
The scent throw was pretty decent. I had this candle burning in my master bedroom, a rather large room and the scent carried through the whole room and then some. That’s pretty good! Liked this candle but I would have loved it even more had the darn thing burned right. Again, these candles fizzled out maybe 2 inches into burning them. I was not happy!
Oatmeal Raisin Crumb Cake
This scent almost seemed too good to be true… I loved the smell of this candle sniffing it unlit… it smelled just like I would want an oatmeal raisin bakery scent to smell. No scent description again to go off of but this one is pretty straightforward to me.
I could smell the oatmeal (maybe a touch of raisins) but for the most part, this was such a wonderful and perfect sweet bakery bread scent. It was soooooooo delicious… I could have nibbled on this candle with my morning cup of coffee! Once lit…. it didn’t seem as sweet but it was still good. The scent throw was medium which is pretty decent to me.
Hanna’s really nailed this scent head on…. too bad the wicks pooped only letting me burn 2 inches into this candle, if that! ((shaking head))
Caramel Pecan Crumb Cake
This was by far my favorite scent of the four I tried and that’s saying something since I really liked all of them. This candle smelled SO good, it was all I could do not to eat this candle with a fork and glass of milk. I don’t have a scent description to go off of but man, this scent smelled just like a moist and freshly baked piece of cake. It was the most sweet and delicious bread smell, I just loved it!!
I’m really into caramel scents right now and pecan (if it’s subtle) and this fragrance was such a perfect blend. I couldn’t really pinpoint caramel or pecan if I’m being honest… it just smelled like the quintessential cozy and warm/bakery cake scent.
Now…. if only this candle would have burned correctly… boy, at this point, I’d settle for getting through even half the candle!! Geesh!
