What did my candle smell like?
Strawberry Lemonade Cupcake! The moment I saw this candle, I purchased one immediately. Two of my favorite scents combined… lemonade and cupcake. I HAD to purchase it to review.
Here is the scent description for Strawberry Lemonade Cupcake:
Indulge yourself with this sweet bakery favorite. This trendy desert is becoming a favorite for every sweet tooth. Enjoy top notes of strawberry, orange and grapefruit. The middle combines sweet lemonade and a light dose of bakery coconut. The bottom warms the heart with vanilla cupcake mix, buttermilk and powdered sugar.
That’s quite the scent description and had me drooling. Strawberry, lemonade, coconut with warm vanilla cupcake, buttermilk and powdered sugar? Holy cow did that sound amazing! Smelling the wax for the first time… I smelled a sweet strawberry lemonade. I wasn’t really smelling the cupcake part but it did smell sweet and yummy regardless. The true test is once it’s lit. Then all the notes in the description may come to life which I was really hoping for… time to find out!
I lit my candle in a large bedroom and I’d say it took a good 20 minutes or more to really start noticing the fragrance. Once the fragrance traveled all throughout my bedroom – I smelled a sweet strawberry lemonade. Not very strong but subtle. I still wasn’t making out the bakery notes I was hoping for which bummed me out a little bit but I still enjoyed it. It still smelled really good – just a more subtle and sweet strawberry lemonade.
Strength – in a large room, I would rate this candle between a 6 and 7. In a medium size room, I would give it an 8. It wasn’t super strong but gave a subtle medium scent throw.
My candle burned perfect. No issues at all. I did have to keep up in wick trimming but that’s normal with any candle.
Closing to my review:
I liked this fragrance… I just wish it would have been more bakery as stated in the description. It was still nice though so if you love sweet lemonade scents, this is a great fragrance to try. My only bit of advice should you try this fragrance… stick to a small or medium sized room for the best scent throw. I burned this candle in a pretty large room and the scent was definitely not as strong as it could have been.
Goose Creek is always running amazing sales so watch for a sale when you’re ready to purchase. Just be warned… their sales are pretty dangerous… and addicting.
Happy candle hunting!
