First impression of Vanilla & Caramel:
I purchased Vanilla & Caramel from Candle-Lite at my local Safeway grocery store of all places. Yeah, I can’t even resist smelling candles when I’m grocery shopping. It’s a sickness I’m sure most of you can relate to.
Anyway, Vanilla & Caramel caught my eye the moment I saw it and as soon as I smelled it, I couldn’t resist purchasing one to review. It smelled really yummy…like a sweet vanilla custard. Mmm mm!!!!
Before I get started with the fragrance… Candle-Lite is a pretty big brand that can be found in grocery and drug stores across the country so they are easily accessible. The candle itself was presented nicely. It was a standard apothecary jar with a flat plastic chrome lid. The wax looked very similar to Yankee’s shiny mottled wax. The label on the candle was clear with a picture of vanilla ice cream with caramel syrup drizzled on top. Yum!! This
candle also had two wicks.
Time to see how this candle performs!
I lit this candle in a small bathroom which ended up being the perfect size room for this fragrance. Once the wicks were lit, it didn’t take long to reach a full melt pool and from then on out… a warm bakery vanilla filled my powder room. It reminded me of a vanilla cake or vanilla bread. Very warm and decadent. I didn’t notice any caramel notes, just sweet vanilla. The overall scent was delicious and I really liked it.
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle a 5 in a small room. Because if was so lightly scented, I wouldn’t even attempt burning this scent is anything larger if you want to maximize scent throw.
This candle burned great. Zero wick issues. Clean burning from start to finish.
Closing to my review:
I really enjoyed Vanilla & Caramel from Candle-Lite and would for sure purchase it again. It was a nice bakery vanilla that reminded me of a warm vanilla cake. Not too sweet but a perfect warm bakery. My favorite kind.
Vanilla lovers, should you see this candle at your local drug or grocery store, smell one. You may end up walking away with one like I did. Just remember it’s pretty light so a small room works best to burn this one in.
Happy candle hunting!
