Pistachio Cream Milkshake Drizzle Melt Review
by Christina Rylan
Brand: Swan Creek Candle Co
Scent: Pistachio Cream Milkshake
Type: 4.75oz Clamshell Melts
First impression of Pistachio Cream Milkshake:
Pistachio Cream Milkshake is one of Swan Creek’s newer fragrances released in 2018. I’m not normally a huge fan of pistachio scents but I’ve been known to enjoy a few on occasion so I decided to give this one a whirl.
Here is the scent description for Pistachio Cream Milkshake:
Roasted pistachios, whipped honeycomb, white rum and fresh cream are blended together for a unique, lush gourmand sensation that is smooth and sharp at the same time – perfect for any foodie!
Okay, that sounds pretty yummy! Smelling the wax, I detected a creamy pistachio with lots of cream, and as indicated in the description, there was a sharpness to it which has to be the pistachio. As a bakery lover, it does smell pretty yummy.
Time to start melting!
With Swan Creek’s Drizzle melts, one cube per melt session works great for me. Once the wax was melting, it took a good hour before I really started noticing the aroma which told me a lot – this scent was light. The fragrance… the pistachio definitely stood out the most to me. The creamy “gourmand” component was there as well but I think that’s what kept this fragrance subtle. I had this scent going almost all day and I even changed the wax to fresh cubes a few hours in and the aroma throughout my great room always remained subtle. Too subtle to really enjoy.
My next attempt was melting my last two cubes in a smaller room and that definitely gave better results. In a medium size room, the fragrance sharpened to a pistachio and cream that completely filled the room, but the sad part… now that I could smell it, it kind of smelled chemically to my nose and I didn’t like it.
In the end, I guess this fragrance and I were not meant to be. Should you give this scent at try or if you’re already tried it… what did you think? Did you have the same results as I did? Let us know.
