Fragrance: Vanilla Creme
Scent Strength: Light
First impression of Vanilla Creme:
I have always been a fan of Pier 1 candles. They are so pretty all by themselves and make great decorations on a table or shelf in your home. Add the amazing fragrances and you’ll be in heaven. Vanilla Creme so far is my absolute favorite scent Pier 1 carries. Vanilla lovers…. it’s AMAZING!!!! As soon as I popped the lid off this candle to smell it for the first time, I think I closed my eyes and sighed dreamily. It’s a creamy and decadent vanilla you will want to eat with a spoon.
Here is the scent description from Pier 1’s website:
A sweet blend of vanilla, coconut, ginger and caramelized buttercream fragrances, all packaged in a pretty jar and ready to take home.
Oh my gosh! Now I know what keeps me coming back for more…. “caramelized buttercream!” You can smell that loud and clear and it will drive you crazy – it smells so good. This is a vanilla that is rich, creamy and smooth with a sugary burnt smell to it (The caramelized buttercream) that reminds me of crème brulee. Seriously, this scent is exactly what crème brulee smells like down to the finest detail. YUM!!!!!!
Time to light my candle to see if the scent stays true while burning.
I decided to test this candle in a small bathroom since I was after the strongest scent throw possible. Smaller the room… the better chance of that. Once lit… I have to say I was pretty disappointed with the strength of this candle. Even in a tiny room… the scent was very light although what I could smell was a delicious vanilla. Not quite as yummy as it smelled cold but it was still pretty good. The caramelized buttercream disappears once lit (which made me sad) but the overall fragrance still smelled like a creamy and sweet vanilla. I just wish it would have been stronger.
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle a 5 in a very small room. This was a pretty decent size candle with 2 wicks so the scent throw (in my opinion) should have been somewhat stronger. Medium to larger rooms – wouldn’t even attempt it and if you do, try two candles at once.
How did my candle burn?
My candle burned perfect. No wick issues, clean burn from beginning to end. No wasted wax. A+
Closing to my review:
I really loved Vanilla Creme but not so much the scent throw. I plan on trying another candle down the road to see if I get the same results and if I do, will probably just use it as a decoration prop rather than for scenting a room. The candle itself was gorgeous and would add to any room “décor wise.” The scent itself… a delicious and sweet vanilla and one I really enjoyed it – what I could smell of it anyway.
Next time you’re at a Pier 1 store, go smell this candle. If you love vanilla, you may find it irresistible like I did.
Happy candle hunting!
