Scent Strength: Light
First impression of Vanilla Cupcake from Colonial:
I couldn’t resist purchasing Vanilla Cupcake from Colonial. I am such a huge vanilla and cake fan so it seemed a match made in heaven.
Vanilla Cupcake was a creamy off white color with the label showing two vanilla frosted cupcakes. In case you didn’t know, I love Colonial’s big oval jars. They are expensive but if you catch a sale, they aren’t too bad and boy are the larger candles room fillers. First impression… Vanilla Cupcake smelled like a sweet vanilla cake, more vanilla than cake but still quite yummy.
Here is the scent description for Vanilla Cupcake:
Who can resist the sweet, creamy aroma of Vanilla Cupcakes? Loaded with rich vanilla and delicious buttery frosting to make your mouth water.
Time to find out how it burns!
I lit this candle in my master bedroom and within a few hours, I decided to move it to a much smaller room. The scent was very light and I could hardly smell the fragrance unless I put my nose right up to the candle.
When deciding on what room to move it to, I felt like Goldie Locks. A large room was too light. A medium room was just okay but a smaller room ended up being juuuuuust right. Once it was in a smaller room, the aroma was perfect. A sweet bakery vanilla cupcake. Warm and delicious.
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle a 3 in a large room. 6 in a medium room and a 9 in a very small room. Definitely not a candle you want to purchase if you love strong candles.
This candle burned great. No wick issues. Clean burning from beginning to end.
Closing to my review:
I enjoyed Vanilla Cupcake but not sure enough to purchase it again. The strength was just too light for me to justify the price. These candles aren’t cheap and if you like your candles strong – which I do – this fragrance will probably disappoint you.
Happy candle hunting!
