Fragrance: Fluffy Pancakes
Scent Strength: Super light
First impression of Fluffy Pancakes:
Fluffy Pancakes was a bakery scent that had my mouth watering before I even purchased the candle. Warm buttermilk pancakes loaded with maple syrup? Oh yes please! At least that’s what I imagined.
Let’s start off with the scent description for Fluffy Pancakes:
Morning! The smell of warm pancake batter & molten marshmallows fill the air.
Top: Warm Pancake Batter, Marshmallows
Mid: Soft Maple Syrup, Caramel
Base: Vanilla Bean, Sugar
Marshmallows?! I’ve never had pancakes with marshmallows but, heck yeah! I’m game. As long as the warm pancake batter and maple syrup is the base to this scent, I’ll be happy. First sniff, the wax smelled very light so it was hard to distinguish what this candle actually smelled like. What I could detect was the sweet maple syrup so that’s a good sign. Hoping everything else in the description comes to life once the candle is burning.
Let’s get to it!
I lit my Fluffy Pancakes candle in a small room to start out and that’s where it stayed till the very end. The aroma… very light. Keep in mind, I burned this candle in the tiniest room in my house (my powder room) and even in such a tiny space, the fragrance was extremely subtle. With my nose up to the candle, I could smell the pancake batter with maybe hints of vanilla but no maple syrup, caramel or marshmallows. And I tried folks. I lingered in my powder room often. I even kept the door shut to make sure the aroma filled the room and even then, the fragrance remained subtle. What I could smell was nice – a warm sort of bread/vanilla scent.
Just an FYI – I went back to Goose Creek’s website and read all the reviews for Fluffy Pancakes and it left me even more confused. This candle got a slew of 5-star reviews. Did all those customers get a different candle than I did? Did I receive a dud? Who knows. All I can do is write my review based off the experience I had and bottom line, this candle had very little fragrance. (((insert sad face.)))
How did my Fluffy Pancakes candle burn?
This candle burned fine. No wick issues other than keeping them trimmed before each lighting. Clean burning from beginning to end.
Closing to my review:
Fluffy Pancakes sounded so promising but ended in pure disappointment for me. I’m very bummed because I wanted so much to love this scent. I was prepared to love it in fact but, it wasn’t meant to be. It smelled good – it was just too lightly scented to enjoy.
Have you tried Fluffy Pancakes from Goose Creek? If yes, what did you think of it? I’d love to know.
Happy candle hunting!
