Better Not Pout, Spiced Gingerbread Candle Review
By Christina Rylan

Type: 4.5oz large 3 wick candle
Fragrance: Better Not Pout, Spiced Gingerbread
Scent Strength: Subtle
First impression of Better Not Pout, Spiced Gingerbread:
I was one lucky girl and managed to hit the Bath & Body Works $8.95 candle (once a year sale) minutes after it went live online. What does that mean? It means I got every scent I wanted. WHEEEE!! And one candle I couldn’t wait to review in time for Christmas… Better Not Pout. That’s the scent name but the scent itself was Spiced Gingerbread. YUM!!
Here is the scent description I pulled from the bottom of the candle:
Spiced Gingerbread, vanilla icing, sparkling cinnamon sugar, fresh ground nutmeg.
Mmmm!!!! Everything in that description sounded scrumptious and I was rubbing my hands in glee. The moment I popped off the lid to smell the wax, double yum!! It smelled amazing, and my nose picked up on everything.
I loved it! Now let’s see how this candle performs.
I lit this candle in my master bedroom. Once the wicks were lit, it took the average 20 minutes to reach a full melt pool but the scent was a little too subtle for that size room so, I ended up moving it to a smaller one where it performed much better. Once moved, the aroma began to fill my guest bedroom and it was pretty yummy. I smelled a very doughy bakery gingerbread with creamy vanilla… one of the best gingerbread scents I’ve ever smelled. I’m wondering if the vanilla icing made a difference because I swear, this scent smelled more doughy vanilla that gingerbread and truth be told, I loved it. Some gingerbread scents can be a little too harsh for me. Not this one… it smelled like white cake and gingerbread and good enough to eat. YUM!!
Strength – definitely stick to a medium to small room if you give this scent a try. I would rate it an 7 out of 10 in a medium size room. 10 in smaller rooms. If you want to go big, try burning two candles at once.
How did my candle burn?
This candle burned perfect. Zero wick issues. Clean burning from start to finish.
Closing to my review:
I’m not usually a huge fan of Gingerbread scents but this version was pretty yummy and worthy of a second purchase. I will definitely pick this candle up again should I find it before the holidays are over.
I don’t see Better Not Pout listed on Bath & Body Works website right now but if you want one, check of of their stores which tends to carry all their scents vs. online. I think with all their amazing sales this year, they’ve really sold out through their website.
Merry Christmas candle lovers and happy candle hunting!
