Salted Vanilla Bath & Body Works Candle Review

I was pretty disappointed with Salted Vanilla. I was expecting a creamy vanilla and on the bakery side with the addition of buttercream. I didn’t get that
First Impressions of My Salted Vanilla Candle
Since vanilla happens to be in my top 5 favorite aromas of all time, Salted Vanilla sounded too yummy to pass up. Once I read the scent description, I wanted to review this candle even more.
Here is the scent description from the bottom of the candle:
White sea salt, Madagascar vanilla, soft buttercream.
YUM!!! Sounds perfect, but once I smelled the wax, I was completely thrown off kilter. Reading the description above, I imagined equal parts vanilla, buttercream and sea salt which sounds absolutely yummy. What I actually smelled when I put my nose up to the wax was all perfume with very little vanilla, no buttercream, no salt. Strange. But, you never know… maybe all three elements will come to life once the candle was burning.
Let’s find out!!
How Did My Candle Perform?
I lit this candle in my master bedroom and came back 10 minutes later to a very soft and subtle aroma of perfume. Up close, it reminded me of a soft musk. Again, very strange. I didn’t really detect sea salt or buttercream. Maybe vanilla but even that was hard to decipher. To me, this scent smelled like a really soft and pretty perfume.
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle a 7 out of 10 in a really large room. 8+ in medium or smaller rooms. Not super strong but it did give a nice and steady medium throw.
How Did My Candle Burn?
This candle burned perfect. No wick issues. Clean burning from beginning to end.
Closing To My Salted Vanilla Candle Review
I was pretty disappointed with Salted Vanilla. I was expecting a creamy vanilla and on the bakery side with the addition of buttercream. I didn’t get that. Sea salt, I didn’t detect at all. This would have been one of those times when shopping in a physical Bath & Body Works store would have been ideal. Had I done that, I probably wouldn’t have purchased this candle based off cold sniff. And that’s the chance you take purchasing online.
Next time you’re near a Bath & Body Works store, smell Salted Vanilla and see what you think? Vanilla or perfume?
Happy candle hunting!
