Candles From The Keeping Room - Birthday Cake

Scent Description: When you sniff this you'll get a cake batter scent. If you've ever had cake batter ice cream, this smells just like that. Delicious!
Weight Melted: 1.0 oz
Cold Sniff: 4/5 Sweet, authentic cake batter!
Warm Sniff: 2/5 Unfortunately, once I warmed this the scent died away and I was left with a vague vanilla scent mixed with what can only be described as 'waxy'.
Scent Strength: 1/3
Scent Throw: 3/5 This filled the kitchen and most of the living room.
Melting Power: 2/5 I let this melt for about 6 hours before I called it quits.
Repurchase: No. This is the first dud from my March order. It's probably for the best - my wishlist keeps growing far beyond what I could realistically buy in a single opening from Carol. As it was, her opening this past Saturday was so horrid that I stopped half way through filling my cart, when I still had 10 perfectly good scents that made it in. I talked with M afterwards and ultimately decided that my stash would have to last me until Carol decides to open again come Fall time.
I've never had good luck with any previous Birthday Cake scents, either. They always smell amazing on cold sniff and lose something when melted. I continue my search for... *dramatic sigh* the perfect Birthday Cake scent.

  1. It is almost a relief when I find one I don't like lol! Ten scents is pretty swell. But I understand holding off. Not that I did. ;-) I wanted to grab some of my favorite apple and spice scents.
