Review: Candles From The Keeping Room's Pink Sugar Milk

This is the conversation I had with myself upon cold sniffing Pink Sugar Milk from a Candles From The Keeping Room sampler a few months ago.
"Come on, Lauren, just try might even like it!"
"Pink Sugar Milk from Candles From The Keeping Room...COME ON! It'll be a slam dunk!"
"You like pink sugar, you like milk...what could be bad about it!?"
While warming: NO, NO, NO, NO, NO. 
Milk smells and tastes good by itself...
Some people rave about this scent, saying it is comforting*, sweet, inviting**....
(yeah, if by comforting* you mean 'vomitous' and inviting** you mean 'I will never go to your house again as long as I live...')
If you like "milky" scents, you will love this. Me, I am not a fan.

Candles From The Keeping Room's Pink Sugar Milk
Cold Rating: 5/10; mild milkiness masked by deceptively sweet pink sugar.
Lit Rating: 2.5/10; ugh. I thought the trash hadn't been taken out in days. I left and came back while this started and was greeted by such pleasant pink at the doorway, and such sourness in the bedroom. No. Just no.
Throw Rating: 5/10; it was unfortunately sort of strong, lingered a little ways out of the bedroom...
Overall Rating: 4/10; I really enjoy trying new and different scents for the fun of it. If you think this is weird, just wait and see what I have in store for you...


  1. How do you really feel, Lauren? :P

    I have loved the Pink Sugar scent in handcrafted soaps, but I find I'm not fond of it in tarts.


    1. Sometimes the pink sugar completely overwhelms whatever else it is combined with, you know? Where have you purchased handcrafted soaps in pink sugar!?

  2. The name of this one sounds intriguing...then I realized that milk probably isn't my ideal home scent. I hate milk! maybe chocolate milk.....yuck!

    How does it compare to Milk and Cookies from YC? I love that scent but I think the milk note on its own would be weird

    1. I have never smelled Milk & Cookies from Yankee, was the weird scent you smelled a bit sour, off perhaps? If so, it's probably the same milkiness as this tart...ewwwwww, not a fan! :P

  3. Hehehe, this scent is definitely not for everyone! But it's one of my faves.

    1. If I come across any more of these (I thought I ordered a bag of it??), I will save it for you. :)

  4. Haha!! I am torn on this scent as well. At first, I was appalled by it and gave the bag of it to my mom. Then I smelled it again one time I was over there and I decided to give it another shot. I guess I'll see when I melt it! I think it's one of those love/hate kind of scents.
