Our Review of the Bath & Body Works Blueberry Maple Pancakes Candle
Bath & Body works decided to celebrate this.”holiday” in the summer as they introduced the Blueberry Maple Pancakes candle in July of 2018 as part of their fall collection. I love maple pancake scents, so I was excited to try this candle.
Cold Sniff: On cold, I picked up a heavy blueberry note. I was expecting a sweet, candy blueberry scent, but it was more like smelling a bag of frozen blueberries. The blueberry note wasn’t overly sweet, but wasn’t tart either. The maple notes were pretty faint and the pancake/bakery note was almost non-existent. Not a bad scent on cold, but not what I was expecting.
Lit Scent: Once lit, the blueberry notes I picked up on cold came through nicely. I give Bath & Body Works credit for producing a nice blueberry note in this candle. The maple note was stronger once the candle got going. The maple reminded me a bit of one of those mcgriddle breakfast sandwiches you get from McDonalds. It was a toned down maple scent which did blend nicely with the blueberry I was getting. One disappointment with this candle was the lack of the pancake note. I don’t know if it was drowned out by the blueberry & maple, but the pancake/bakery part of the candle just wasn’t there for me.
Scent Throw & Strength: The throw from this candle was pretty good, probably a 8.5 out of 10. The scent really traveled throughout the house. The scent strength was decent, maybe a 6 or 7 out of 10. It’s not one of those candles that is overpowering, but you will be able to detect it a good 20 feet or so from where the candle is located.
Final Thoughts: I have mixed feeling about this candle. I don’t think the name is 100% accurate. For me, its frozen blueberries & a mcgriddle sandwich. Its not a bad scent, just not what I had envisioned. But its already a hit on social media and no doubt plenty of people are going to like this candle.
