First impression of Vanilla Birch:
I’m such a fan of vanilla scents in all forms, so I couldn’t wait to review this candle. The moment I smelled the wax… zero regrets. It smelled amazing!! A sophisticated and masculine vanilla wafted all around my nose.
Here is the scent description from the bottom of the candle:
White birch bark, Madagascar vanilla, warm sandalwood.
Mmmmm!!!! I’m not sure what “white birch bark” smells like but the Madagascar vanilla and sandalwood elements were loud and clear and it smelled amazing. It reminded me of a very warm and sophisticated vanilla you would smell in a Pier 1 Imports store. Very rich and exotic. I loved it just based off cold sniff. Now let’s see how it performs!
I lit this candle in my master bedroom and waited for the magic to begin which literally took minutes. 20 minutes later, the aroma was traveling everywhere! My entire bedroom, open bathroom and even spilled out into my great-room. Basically, this candle scented the entire upper level of my home as well as parts of my downstairs area. It was THAT strong! The aroma…. a sweet and creamy vanilla with the perfect touch of sandalwood and something else which I’m guessing was the birch bark. Whatever it was, it had a subtle masculine vibe to it and boy was it awesome. This vanilla is pure sophistication and I loved every single moment of it!
Strength – I would rate this candle a 10 in all size rooms. The strength was amazing!!
This candle burned perfect. No wick issues. Clean burning from beginning to end.
Closing to my review:
I absolutely LOVED Vanilla Birch from White Barn and plan on purchasing several more before they retire for the season. I love, love, LOVED it!!!! So I guess it’s safe to say I 100% recommend it to all you vanilla lovers out there, especially if you love more sophisticated versions. I like them all but this one really impressed the heck out of me.
Go buy one! You won’t be sorry!! And just an FYI… if you don’t see this candle on their website to purchase, try one of their many stores which tends to carry all their scents vs. online.
Happy candle hunting!
