The beauty of candles is that you can make them smell like just about anything. A rose garden, freshly mowed grass, or even like freshly baked chocolate chip cookies! But candles that smell like pizza? As we pondered this question, we found out that it is not such a crazy thought afterall. We found several companies that made pizza scented candles, and so we decided it was our duty to put them to the test. What does a pizza candle smell like anyway? Would it be any good? Were some better than others? Time to find out, the Candlefind way!
Stinky Candle Company
The first place we looked for a pizza scented candle was Stinky Candle Company. They are known for making far-out scents and we certainly weren’t disappointed.
We certainly wanted to try an all soy version of a pizza scented candle, so we were glad to find that Oversoyed offered one up. This one was less about the dough and more about the cheese and spices. It was pretty authentic if you’re looking for a candle that smells like pizza!
It’s no surprise that Gourmet Candle makes candles that smell like pizza. They also have some…er…unique scent choices, so it was not a far stretch to expect a pizza candle. This particular candle was a bit of a light thrower and was more garlic-y than the others we tried.
Big T Ranch Soap
The Big Cheese Pizza Soy Wax Melts
Maybe you don’t want your pizza scented candle to have that sausage or pepperoni meat smell to it. That’s when you should opt for a candle that smells like cheese pizza. We found The Big Cheese Pizza wax melts from Big T Ranch Soap and thought they should do just fine. Look at how adorable they are! They packed a punch scentwise, and they, indeed, smelled a bit cheesy. There were not spices mixed into this one that we could tell, so it really just smelled like warmed cheese.
Chicago Style Pizza
If it’s a thick, doughy type scent you’re after, consider a Chicago style pizza scented candle. We were happy to find one from Tracey Gurney off Etsy and it was pretty authentic – probably our favorite of the bunch! This would scent up a small space, so keep that in mind if ordering.
The ‘One Night Standle’
We have a great sense of humor here at Candlefind, so Flaming Crap was for sure on our list to search for pizza scented candles. We found The ‘One Night Standle’ candle, which is a mixture of few scents, pizza included. Oh boy, did it deliver! This was a mash-up type of scent that we weren’t quite sure what to make of. This would make a great gag gift for someone, but not sure we would keep burning this one away in our homes.
True Texas Scents
Pizza & Beer
If you want more than a candle that smells like pizza, how about a candle that smells like pizza and beer? That’s what we found at True Texas Scents and it did a nice blend of the doughy pizza with some malt, wheaty notes that you would expect from a cold beer. Definitely a bit different than the others and with a pretty good scent throw!
