Goose Creek Review: Peanut Butter Sugar

My Review for:   Goose Creek- Peanut Butter Sugar

Yankee Description: "Enjoy the authentic aroma of a tasty vanilla-dipped waffle cone filled to the brim with rich peanut butter ice cream with the premium Peanut Butter Sugar candle."
Fragrance Notes: 
Top:   Fluffy Marshmallow, Peanut Butter Blend
Mid:   Vanilla Bean, Warm Butter
Base: Vanilla Dipped Waffle Cone

Quite Authentic...

  • I hadn't read what the notes were to this candle, until AFTER I wrote my review. I don't want to spoil anything, but my search for the perfect Peanut Butter candle continues. That doesn't mean I'm not going to burn this candle. I've found a lot names (and notes) don't fit the fragrance. Though it lacks Peanut Butter, the scent is delightfully sweet & surprisingly versatile.

  • Cold Sniff: It's sweet & almost smokey. As mentioned before, I don't get any peanut, just a buttery, marshmallow-like scent. I expected sugar & this did not disappoint. The smoky marshmallow blends in well. This is what I imagine Bath & Body Works Marshmallow Fireside to smell like. It's richer than Bedtime Stories because of the warm butter note. I don't have much else to compare it to besides Butter Cookie, and I've been saving that one. I haven't burned it yet.

  • Upon burning, the smokey note turns into a toasted one. Beside the buttered, sugary maarshmallow sweetness, there is an extra that keeps this scent from getting sickeningly sweet. I pick up almost a waffle cone & vanilla warmness that only comes out upon burning. The throw fills my living room, and drifts into the hallway. Peanut Butter Sugar has depth & a lot of possibilities. I plan to keep burning it on it's own, as well as mixing it w/ my B&BW Hot Fudge Sundae candle. I think I'll get a Peanut Butter & Chocolate Wafflecone, and I'm SO ready for that!

    -Fragrance:  9/10   (misleading name. loses a point)
    -Throw:        8/10   (perfect for my mid sized living room!)
    -Overall:       B+

    I'd buy it again.

    Until Next Time, my Illuminating Subjects!
