Vanilla candles are candles that have the primary fragrance note of vanilla. The vanilla scent itself can take on many different forms. The vanilla can be sweet and sugary, like a buttercream frosting. It can be sultry and sexy like the vanilla bean itself. Tahitian vanilla is a milder form of vanilla scent with floral notes. Madagascar vanilla typically produces a more thick and creamy aroma. The Soap & Paper Factory makes a great Madagascar vanilla candle. For a pure vanilla candle, consider Vanilla from Pure Integrity.
