What did my candle smell like?
It’s pretty awesome how many different types of candles Big Lots carries these days. One series I keep finding are Betty Crocker candles. They aren’t the most fragrant candles on the block but they sure smell edible and the price is really inexpensive. Hard to resist for sure.
I couldn’t find a scent description for Peach Cobbler but you get the gist of what it should smell like from the scent name. Yummy warm and baked peaches drenched in vanilla ice cream on a bed of warm bakery crust. YUM!!!!! When I smelled the wax for the first time, I smelled a sweet and creamy peach. Not so much bakery but more along the lines of peaches and sugar. Still very yummy.
Time to find out how this candle performs.
The last Betty Crocker candle I reviewed had practically no fragrance so I stuck to super small power room to test this candle in and left it there from start to finish. Once I lit the wick, it took almost 4 or more hours to reach a full melt pool and the scent once I could smell it…. a light and sweet peach. It was nice although very light.
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle a 3 in a very small room. I burned this candle in a tiny power room and it lightly fragranced it so that gives you an idea.
This candle was very slow burning and did struggle at times to reach a full melt pool with each lighting. But, it eventually did. With wick trimming each day, the candle burned clean all the way down.
Closing to my review:
This was a nice and sweet peach… so I loved the fragrance, I just wish it would have been a tad stronger. I personally think this Better Crocker brand would be awesome if they would just add more fragrance to their candles. They’re just a little too light for me, even for the price.
I think I have one more candle in this series to review so stay tuned.
Happy candle hunting!
