Cookies, Cakes and Baked Treats
Now that our mouths were watering, it was time for some good old fashioned holiday desserts. And our reviewers had NO problem rounding these up for us.
Julia started with…
…from Pink Flower Scents (Comforting aromas of warm cinnamon and gingerbread swirled with caramelized sugar on a warm vanilla custard. An exclusive blend).
Julia told us:
I am a huge fan of gingerbread scents, so trying this interesting blend from Pink Flower Scents was a sure bet. This scent is more than a straight up gingerbread. It’s like a dessert with gingerbread on top. I could smell the brulee custard, the burnt sugar and of course the gingerbread too. One little ounce melt filled my kitchen with scent. It smelled cozy and inviting…awesome scent.

For a spin on the gingerbread scent, Avery tried…
… from Friendly Fumes (Sweet orange essential oil and gingerbread fragrance.)
Avery was sure to say:
Friendly Fumes has added Spa tumblers to their candle line. These are sleek and simple – they fit better into my dÃ©cor than the apothecary style. I like the new option! This soy candle is orange – and it burned nicely – no soot or problems with the wick. The scent is heavier on orange than gingerbread to my nose – it is more pomander than bakery. It is one of those Thanksgiving into Christmas types of scents – it makes you feel cozy as the weather starts turning nasty outside, and as you scoot closer to Christmas, it is a soothing “present wrapping scent.”

… from Cozy Cottage Scents (A freshly baked cookie with hints of vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger.Sweet, Soothing and the scent flows. One of my personal favorites!)
“Run,run as fast as you can. You can’t catch me, I’m the Gingerbread Man!” Well, let me tell you. If the Gingerbread Man tastes anything like this melt from Cozy Cottage, he’d better start running faster! This is a super delicious gingerbread scent that is not too heavy on the spices. The sweet, creamy vanilla is blended in well to keep this from being too spicy or harsh. The scent throw was on the lighter side but still very, very good. Now – where’s my glass of milk?

Going a bit sweeter Julia found…
… from Yankee Candle (An irresistible treat … rich, moist vanilla cupcake covered with sweet buttery holiday icing.).
What could be better than a cupcake? A Christmas cupcake, of course. This melt from Yankee Candle was packed with vanilla. It was yummy sweet smelling cake with a heavy dose of vanilla extract. This is the way foody scent lovers ring in the holiday…with vanilla cupcakes and icing. Wonderful. I got a good, medium throw from my tealight melter with this scent. Since it was a Yankee Candle melt, I thought it was only fitting to melt it in a Yankee Candle melter. It was a match made in heaven.

Needing some cookies on the table, Andrea pulled out…
… from Laughing Out Loud Candles (Cookies aren’t just for Santa anymore. Theses fresh baked delights will please all year long.)
Andrea let us know:
Laughing Out Loud makes some of the best bakery scents out there and Holiday Cookies is no exception. This scent reminded me of some sugary butter cookies with a little something extra. Maybe frosting or sugar sprinkles on top? I’m not sure but all I can say is…Mmmmmm! This is one of their lighter scents but by no means is it wimpy. In fact this realistic, mouthwatering cookie scent will make your guests think you’ve been baking all day! The truth will be just between us.

Julia opted for some…
… from Laughing Out Loud Candles
(Apple pastries infused with chocolatey cream, woodsy conifers, and cinnamon berries) Julia said: It’s beginning to smell a lot like Christmas. Winter Pastries leaned heavily towards the woodsy pine with spiced berries. The apple pastries and chocolate notes were harder to detect. It seemed like an odd combination of fragrances for one tart, but surprisingly, the scent worked well. I liked Winter Pastries. It had the right amount of spice to give the pine an extra bit of Holiday twinkle. The melt I tried filled my main area with fragrance that ws enjoyable with every inhale, but not overpowering.
