First Impression of Coffee Shop:

Coffee Shop from Goose Creek sounded like a fragrance right up my alley. I love the smell of coffee. You know what I’m talking about – that fresh brewed aroma when you walk into a coffee shop? It’s just so cozy and yummy.

Here is the scent description for Coffee Shop:

An early morning stop by your favorite coffee shop. It’s the rich, soul stirring aroma of roasting coffee beans filling the air.

Top: Roasting Coffee Beans
Mid: Warm Molten Mocha
Base: Hazelnuts, Milk

Yes! That’s what I’m talking about. That aroma of walking into a local coffee shop. Fresh ground coffee. Hints of vanilla cream and milk. Donuts and pastries. I hope this candle smells just like that.

Let’s find out!

Coffee Candle Review

I decided to stay conservative and light this candle in a small bathroom to start out, which turned out to be a great choice. Once the wicks were lit, it took a good 30 minutes to reach a full melt pool and the aroma… a very, VERY light coffee scent. Honestly, I could barely smell a thing. Keep in mind, this was a super small room and I even kept the door closed to really saturate the room with fragrance. The end result… a very soft coffee fragrance with lots of vanilla and milk. I’m wondering if this scent was heavily saturated with vanilla and milk more than coffee because the coffee was barely there. Strange since coffee scents tend to be pretty strong. Unfortunately, not this one.

Which brings be to strength – I would rate Coffee Shop a 3/4 out of 10 in a really small room. I didn’t even attempt to move it into anything larger.

How Did My Coffee Shop Candle Burn?

This candle burned fine. No wick issues until I got to a little over halfway down the candle. Once I did, I had to really stay on top of wick trimming or the flames became torches.

Closing to My Review:

Alas… Coffee Shop from Goose Creek was a little disappointing and one I’ll not likely be purchasing again. Strange too because the reviews on their website for this candle were just about all 5 stars. So, I’m obviously in the minority rating this candle and that’s okay… you win some, you lose some.

If you love coffee scents and decide to give Coffee Shop a try, start in a small room and go from there. Who knows, maybe you’ll get a better result with strength than I did.

Happy candle hunting!
