Our Review of the Maple Cinnamon Pancakes Candle

Cold sniff:  Very sweet & buttery scent on cold, similar to a rich caramel.  Didn’t get to much of a bakery scent and only a slight hint of cinnamon (or an unknown spice note).   I was expecting something like Pumpkin Pecan Waffles, but this wasn’t even close to that scent. 

Lit Scent: Once lit, the candle got even sweeter. Its a rich, sweet caramel scent.  The cinnamon I thought I smelled on cold was nowhere to be found once lit.  I don’t mind sweet candles, so this wasn’t a problem for me.    However, when I buy a candle called Maple Cinnamon Pancakes, I’m not expecting a Caramel candle. 

Scent Throw & Strength: Both the scent throw & strength was a 7-8 out of 10.  The throw was good, filling our large family room and traveling to the kitchen and hallway.  This was a strong candle at time, but it diminished a bit toward the end.     

Final Thoughts: The scent is decent, very creamy & very sweet.  The performance of the candle was good. However, this candle was grossly mislabeled as I didn’t pick up anything that resembled a Maple Cinnamon Pancake.
