Scent Strength: Light
First impression of Vanilla Cupcake:
I’ve never been one to resist a delicious and warm vanilla cupcake scent so when I saw Chesapeake Bay had a version at my local Target store, I couldn’t resist purchasing one to review. The wax smelled yummy… like a sweet and warm vanilla cake. Authentic and true. YUM!!
I couldn’t find a scent description for this candle but you get the gist of what it’s supposed to smell like. Sweet and warm vanilla cake.
We shall see how it performs!!
I decided to test this candle in a small bathroom and am happy to report, it was a perfect choice in a small room. Even though the candle has 3 wicks, I’ve found this specific brand from Chesapeake tends to be on the lighter side. Once the wicks were lit, it took a good 20 minutes to reach a full melt pool and from then on out, rich and warm vanilla cake filled my powder room with a perfect medium aroma. And the scent stayed pretty true… a realistic and warm vanilla bakery. Nothing synthetic or fake about it. I really liked it, I just wish it would have been a tad stronger so I could have burned this candle in a larger room.
Strength – in a tiny room, I would rate this candle between a 6/7 out of 10. If you try anything larger, the scent would be completely lost.
This candle burned perfect. Zero wick issues other than I had to stay on top of trimming the wicks but that’s pretty normal.
Closing to my review:
Vanilla Cupcake from Chesapeake Bay was a nice and warm vanilla bakery but it was pretty lightly scented so something to keep in mind should you decide to try this candle. If you pick one up, burn it in a smaller room for maximum scent throw.
I picked this one up at Target which carries a big variety of Chesapeake candles. Check them out.
Happy candle hunting!
