Brown Butter Pistachio Goose Creek Review
By Christina Rylan
Brand: Goose Creek
Type: 24oz large candle
Fragrance: Brown Butter Pistachio
Scent Strength: Medium
First impression of Brown Butter Pistachio:
Every time Goose Creek releases new bakery scents on their website, I find myself rushing to purchase one of each. I can’t help it. Their sales make it so easy and I want to review them for Candlefind anyway so it’s a perfect excuse to buy. ?
Brown Butter Pistachio wasn’t a scent I would normally gravitate towards (I’m not a fan of pistachio) but I gave it a whirl anyway and boy am I glad I did. The moment I popped off the lid, a buttery and sweet pistachio fragrance wafted all around me and it was strong and smelled amazing.
Here is the scent description I pulled from Goose Creek’s website:
The season for warm decadent treats is here. Indulge in a warm buttered pistachio.
Top: Brown Butter, Pistachio
Mid: Light Cherry Almonds, Marshmallow Fluff
Base: Creamy Coconut, Warm Vanilla
Mmmm! My nose picked up on Butter, pistachio, hints of cherry and marshmallow fluff/vanilla the most. It basically smelled like a pistachio cookie. I loved it! Now let’s see how this candle performs.
I decided to light this candle in a large room to start out and ended up moving it to a medium size room soon after. Once the wicks were lit, it took the average 20 minutes to reach a full melt pool and the scent truly was yummy. A butter cookie with hints of pistachio and it smelled pretty authentic.
Strength – I would rate this candle a 5 in a large room. 7/8 in a medium size room. 10 in a small room. It wasn’t super strong so definitely stick to medium to smaller rooms if you decide to give this candle a try.
How did my candle burn?
This candle burned great until it reached the halfway point. Once it did, the wicks fizzled out and it burned very slow and unevenly. TOTAL bummer. Soon after that, I couldn’t even get the wicks to stay lit enough to burn evenly so I got half the life out of this candle I should have.
Closing to my review:
I really enjoyed Brown Butter Pistachio but wasn’t happy with how the candle itself performed. Sadly, it does happen sometimes and you just have to chalk it up or if you can, return it if you feel compelled to. I’m hoping I received a fluke candle and it won’t happen again. I’m willing to purchase another one just to see and will report back once I do.
If you love bakery pistachio scents, I think you’ll like this one. Check it out next time you hit a Goose Creek sale. They really do have some amazing ones that are super hard to resist.
Happy candle hunting!
