Brand: Goose Creek
Type: 20oz Tumbler Candle
Scent Strength: Light
First impression of Snickerdoodle:
Snickerdoodle was definitely a bakery scent I wanted to review since I can never resist a good cookie scent.
Here is the scent description I pulled from Goose Creek’s website:
Smitten for snickerdoodle… Fresh from the oven, the heavenly scent of warm butter cookies adorned with cinnamon sugar sweetness.
Yum!! Sugar cookies and cinnamon. Yes please! First impression… I hate to say this but it wasn’t really a good one. The wax upon first sniff kind of smelled synthetic. But, the true test is always once the candle is burning.
Time to find out!
I lit this candle in a small bathroom to start out and ended up leaving it there. The aroma was light so a small room definitely gave the best performance. The scent…. this fragrance disappointed me. It smelled bakery but I couldn’t tell you want. The synthetic notes did go away but what was left was a plain bakery scent that left me wanting more. It didn’t smell like a cookie or cinnamon. Bottom line, it didn’t smell anything like a Snickerdoodle. Totally bummed. 🙁
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle a 3 in a large room. 6 in a medium room and a 7/8 in a really small room. This was not a very strong candle.
This candle burned pretty good. Very little wick maintenance with this one and it burned clean and even from start to finish.
Closing to my review:
Snickerdoodle from Goose Creek unfortunately is not a bakery scent I would recommend. There was just something about this scent that was “off” and left me wanting more. Big gigantic bummer.
It happens though and I shall press on. I do enjoy Goose Creek candles so I won’t be detoured and have plenty more to review from this brand.
Until then…. happy candle hunting!
