What did my candle smell like?
Once again, I’m late getting this candle reviewed before Bath & Body Works pulled it from their site. My bad! The problem is – they list a candle and it’s gone in less than a month. If I bought it, I’m reviewing it, listed or not and am hoping it makes a comeback in the Spring since it was a pretty unique fragrance.
Here is the scent description from the bottom of the candle:
“A comforting new blend of warm caramel, vanilla bean and juicy pear puts a soothing new spin on home sweet home.”
Mmmmm!!!! This candle smelled exactly like the description. I could clearly detect the pear, caramel and vanilla in that order and all three blended perfectly…. it was pretty yummy – and different.
I lit this candle in my master bedroom, my favorite room to review Bath & Body Works candles in. Once I lit, it took about 10 minutes or so to start noticing the scent… after a good 30 minutes, the fragrance drifted everywhere and oh my goodness was it strong and delicious. The aroma smelled exactly as it did when I first smelled the wax…. A sweet pear fragrance drenched in caramel and vanilla. There was also something more to this scent I couldn’t quite pinpoint… a soft amber/perfume mixed in that was so subtle, I almost thought I was imagining it. Whatever it was, it gave the overall scent an added bit of sophistication that worked. I really liked it.
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle an 8. It gave a nice medium/strong scent throw. Not overpowering but perfect. Loved!!
This candle burned perfect. No wick issues, clean and even burn with no wasted wax.
Closing to my review:
I really enjoyed this candle and will definitely purchase it again when it makes a comeback or if it makes a comeback… you never know with this brand. Should you see it though and are after a unique caramel/vanilla scent… this is a great choice. I loved it!
Happy candle hunting!

Now I loved this candle more than Smile, its sweet counterpart. It smelled like gooey caramel with an added touch I can't describe. I hope they bring this one back someday. I'll buy several.
