Fragrance: Golden Cinnamon
Scent Strength: Light
First impression of Golden Cinnamon:
Let’s start off with the scent description for Golden Cinnamon:
Simple break off its golden bark to release the warmth of autumn’s finest cinnamon – sticks of cinnamon bark, soothing vanilla and a dash of salted caramel.
Yummy!! And great description! Smelling the wax, it smelled like creamy vanilla and cinnamon. Maybe a touch of caramel… it was hard to tell. But a note I did detect along with cinnamon and vanilla was the “golden bark” notes. I almost want to say it reminded me of a warm amber spice of some sort. It was very warm and lovely.
Time to see how this candle performs!
I lit this candle in my master bedroom and came back an hour later to a lightly scented room of sweet and creamy golden cinnamon with that spicy note I was detecting… it smelled just like it did when I first smelled the wax. I liked it, I just wish it would have been a tad stronger. The candle was pretty lightly scented which surprised me considering Bath & Body Works candles are usually room fillers for me.
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle a 6 in a large room. My guess is 8+ in medium and smaller rooms which I may have to try next time I purchase this candle.
How did my candle burn?
My candle burned perfect until a little over half way down. From there, the wicks started fizzling out and finally extinguishing causing the candle to tunnel. It didn’t matter what I did to try and remedy it. Total bummer.
Closing to my review:
I liked this fragrance and will probably purchase it again to burn in a smaller room. The strength was just a little lighter than I expected but the scent was unique and I really enjoyed it…. it was a warm and spicy cinnamon vanilla with a unique spice element to it I can’t really describe… it’s just one of those scents you need to experience yourself, especially if you love warm vanilla fragrances.
The negative aspect to this candle – burn performance. For the price we pay for these candles, they should ALWAYS burn perfect and I always feel like I wait with baited breathe each time I light one to see if it malfunctions. So, keep that in mind should you purchase this brand. Not every candle is created equal. Some burn fine, some don’t.
Happy candle hunting!
