Honey Cinnamon Crumb Cake Candle Review
By Christina Rylan

Fragrance: Honey Cinnamon Crumb Cake
Scent Strength: Light
First impression of Honey Cinnamon Crumb Cake:
Honey Cinnamon Crumb Cake was purchased during Bath & Body Works semi-annual sale they just had a few weeks ago. I’m pretty sure it’s an older fragrance but because it was just listed for sale and I hadn’t reviewed it yet – I’m reviewing it!! ?
Here is the scent description I pulled from the bottom of the candle:
Today’s special, an irresistible baked treat made with fresh soft cake, local honey and a hint of cinnamon.
Mmm!! Sounds perfect! First impression when I smelled the wax… I didn’t smell any cinnamon. That was my first observation. Second, I didn’t really smell honey either which is pretty distinctive. To me, this candle smelled like cake and sugar. Sweet sugar cake!! It was super yummy and perfect to my nose just as it was.
Okay, loved the scent. Now let’s see how this candle performs!
I lit this candle in my large master bedroom and waited for the magic to begin… and waited… and waited… the aroma never really permeating my bedroom even after several hours of burning. Next step, I moved it to a medium size room where it wasn’t much better. After that, a smaller room. The aroma once I did… I’m disappointed. My bathroom smelled like a synthetic cake. It wasn’t sweet, honey laced or even remotely appealing. It smelled fake and not authentic at all. Total bummer. ☹
Strength – Not good. I would rate this candle as follows. Large room – 2 out of 10. Medium room 3/4 out of 10. Small – 6 out of 10.
How did my candle burn?
This candle burned fine. No wick issues. Clean burning from start to finish.
Closing to my review:
I’m pretty bummed about this candle. It sure smelled good when I first put my nose up the wax but it didn’t translate very well once burning. It smelled fake and synthetic. So unusual for a Bath & Body Works fragrance.
Two thumbs down.
Happy candle hunting!
