5 Best Chocolate Cake Scented Candles

Some of the best chocolate cake scented candles you can buy!

Candlefind Best Chocolate Cake Scented Candles 2023

Chocolate scented candles are ones that are hard to pull off in wax. If not careful, the chocolate can take on a burned note, which really isn’t pleasant. Chocolate Cake scented candles are often a bit different – the added cake notes help balance things out and often make for a smoother candle scent. Still, just like with our best pie scented candles, no two chocolate cake scented candles seem alike. We’ve rounded up some of our favorites and wax poetic about what makes them seem special or unique. Grab a tall glass of milk & join us for the ride!

While I thought this candle might be “too chocolatey” (is there such a thing??), it actually was quite delicious. The chocolate is just creamy enough and sweet enough – and man, is this candle scent strong! While you can’t get it on the B&BW site anymore, you can find it on Amazon.

Birthdays are meant to be decadent, like rich chocolate cake and double fudge icing! Celebrate your birthday in all the chocolatey goodness one candle can pack!

If you don’t like too much chocolate, you can opt for something like Chocolate Cake from Good Spirits Candle Co. Their version carries just a bit of a lemon twist and the creaminess of hazelnut. It is absolutely divine and worth a try.

Yankee Candle

Chocolate Layer Cake

Chocolate Layer Cake from Yankee Candle has some vanilla in the mix that makes it very creamy and smooth. They list fruity notes in the scent profile, but we don’t detect those. Still, it’s a great chocolate scent and one that is a bit milder and won’t give you that burnt-chocolate-on-the-stove smell.

Sugar Belle

Sea Salt & Cocoa Bean

Sugar Belle Sea Salt & Cocoa Bean Candle
Rich cocoa bean mixed with buttered caramel and a hint of patchouli. A little bit of sugar and soft musk finishes off this fantastic chocolate scent.

Yeah, we’re cheating a bit here but this chocolate candle is just too good not to include. If you want a bit more exotic to your chocolate candle, look no further than Sea Salt & Cocoa Bean from Sugar Belle. It’s just rich and chocolatey enough to make you think there is a cake baking in the oven. Hang around for the earthy patchouli and buttery caramel. It’s oh…so…good.

That’s our collection of the best chocolate scented candles you can buy right now. Don’t worry…these candles will be around for a long time, so you can enjoy them any day of the year!
