First impression of Smoked Vanilla:
I’m a huge fan of Bath & Body Works many vanilla fragrances and Smoked Vanilla was another winner for me. What a unique and sultry fragrance this was. Warm, robust and I dare say… very romantic. Loved!!!
Here is the scent description for Smoked Vanilla:
Smoked Tahitian vanilla, sandalwood, leather, southern bourbon.
Interesting. I wouldn’t have guessed leather but now that I read that and then smell the wax again… maybe. To me, this scent smelled like wood smoke and creamy vanilla but maybe all the other notes will come to life once the candle was burning.
Only one way to find out!
I lit this candle in my master bedroom and within ten minutes of lighting the wicks, the fragrance started traveling throughout my bedroom… after a good hour, the scent even spilled into my open bathroom. It wasn’t knock your socks off strong but gave a nice and steady medium scent throw.
The aroma… a very smoky and rustic masculine fragrance with the vanilla taking a clear backseat. My bedroom literally smelled like a smoky and rustic lodge. I’m partial to masculine scents so I really liked it. Yes, I would like to have smelled more vanilla and southern bourbon but both elements couldn’t even complete against everything else. Even so, I still really enjoyed this scent. A lot.
Strength – I would rate this candle an 8 out of 10 in a large room. 10+ in medium to smaller rooms. This candle gave a nice and steady medium/strong aroma. Very nice.
Perfect. Zero wick issues. Clean and even burn from start to finish.
Closing to my review:
Smoky Vanilla was a nice and woodsy scent I highly recommend to those who love rustic and masculine scents. The vanilla pretty much goes away so be prepared for that. This scent was all smoke and it was really cool. I liked it.
I don’t see this scent listed on Bath & Body Works website but you may find it at one of their stores. It wasn’t that long ago that I purchased this candle. Their stores do tend to carry more scents than online.
Happy candle hunting!
