First impression of Hot Fudge Sundae: 

Any time I am in a Bath & Body Works store, I have to smell every candle that appeals to me and Hot Fudge Sundae was a must smell. MUST!! I’m a bakery girl and my mouth was practically watering with this one. The moment I smelled it… swoon!! Serious chocolate yum!!

Here is the scent description for Hot Fudge Sundae:

Gooey fudge, vanilla bean ice cream, whipped cream.

First sniff, gooey fudge came first blended with the creamiest vanilla. The whipped cream? Oh, I hope so but it was hard to tell with the chocolate dominating. Regardless, this candle smelled beyond edible and I couldn’t wait to light the wicks and get started.

Which happens right now!

I decided to stay conservative and light my Hot Fudge Sundae candle in a medium size room. Within an hour, I knew I had to move it to an even smaller room and chose the tiniest room in my house… my little powder room. That did the trick. From then on out, sweet chocolate cream filled my powder room with aroma and it truly did smell like vanilla ice cream with creamy chocolate. Nothing fake or synthetic about this one. Just pure chocolate deliciousness. As far as the whipped cream, it was still hard to tell. All three elements just melted into each other creating a chocolate, vanilla ice cream fest. I seriously wanted to eat this candle. The only bummer… strength! This candle was very light. Even in my tiny powder room, the fragrance was subtle.

Which brings me to strength. I would rate Hot Fudge Sundae a 5 out of 10 in a super tiny room. That’s not very good for a Bath & Body Works 3 wick candle. Had to be the vanilla that toned this one down so much. I don’t know. It just made me sad because I truly did love this fragrance and would have liked it in a larger room.



How did my Hot Fudge Sundae candle burn?

This candle burned perfect. No wick issues. YES!! Clean burning from beginning to end with no wasted wax.



Closing to my review: 

Loved Hot Fudge Sundae but wish the scent would have been stronger. Much stronger! It’s the strength of this one that will keep me from purchasing it again. Who knows though… I loved the scent enough that I may try again if it comes back down the road. We shall see….

Next time you’re in a Bath & Body Works store, smell Hot Fudge Sundae and see what you think. If you’re a bakery lover like me, you may just say “to heck with it” and purchase one. It was yummy for sure.

Happy candle hunting!
