Judy, Cornbread & Maple Butter Bijou Candle Review
By Christina Rylan
Type: 10.5oz soy candle
Fragrance: Judy, Cornbread & Maple Butter
Scent Strength: Medium
First impression of Judy, Cornbread & Maple Butter:
I usually dedicate the entire month of December to reviewing solid Christmas and holiday scents, which tends to be Christmas tree, Bayberry or Peppermint type scents. In comes Judy, a new holiday candle from Bijou that sounded pretty darn perfect. Why? Because it was bakery, my absolute favorite, and I simply couldn’t resist. Bijou’s new line of candles are very different from their original low sitting (vase style) vessels but still very pretty. They’re all named after famous movie stars from the old Hollywood Era and I’m guessing Judy is none other than Judy Garland. Did she love Cornbread & Maple Butter? After smelling this candle, she had to have. It smelled positively scrumptious!!
Here is the scent description I pulled from Bijou’s website:
This delicious family recipe can remain a secret no longer. Golden corn, almond flour, and a dash of orange essence are baked to perfection. Once slathered in dark amber maple syrup and sweet cream butter, this decadent combination is so perfectly mouthwatering, you’ll be tempted to taste it.
Scent notes: Grandma’s kitchen, that pancake bite that has all the butter on it, fluffy slippers, puppy cuddles.
Mmmmm!!!! That was my initial reaction when I opened the lid to the box the candle was housed in. YUM!! Cornbread and maple butter all the way and so strong, your mouth will water. Mine did. I’m loving it so far, now let’s see how this baby performs!!
I lit this candle in my master bedroom to start out and that’s where it stayed till the very end. Once the wick was lit, it took a good hour to reach a full melt pool but the scent.., Mmm, the scent was present long before that and it was positively yummy. My entire bedroom smelled like warm cornbread slathered in maple and butter and it was pretty darn strong and mouthwatering to boot. This is the kind of holiday scent you’ll want to experience if you’re a bakery lover or if you’re simply in the mood for something different other than Christmas tree or spicy holiday scents. Just picture it… freshly baked cornbread straight from the oven slathered in butter with hints of maple. YUM!! I’ll take two please!
Strength – I would rate this candle an 8 out of 10 in a really large room which is pretty decent. 10 in a medium to smaller rooms.
How did my candle burn?
This candle burned great. Zero wick issues. Clean burning from start to finish.
Closing to my review:
Loved Judy, Cornbread & Maple Butter from Bijou. It was so different and a nice change of pace from all the fresher and classic holiday scents I’ve been burning. I liked it enough to definitely purchase again. You have to love foodie type scents though…. if you don’t, this fragrance may not be for you.
I highly recommend Bijou to all you luxury candle lovers out there. It’s a great company with excellent customer service.
