Review: Granny's Kountry Candles' Snowman Poop

The main reason I got this was for Josh...I knew he'd get a kick out of the name. We're juvenile, okay!? ( snowmen poop??????)
Unfortunately, this one was gross. It was a weird combination of vanilla (?), some awkward spice, and...something that smelled like medical cream but may or may not be artificial maple syrup????? I only had it in the warmer about an hour before I had to turn it off and take a shot of whiskey to forget its smell.

I have had awful luck with Granny's Kountry Candles, and I would DEFINITELY NOT repurchase this scent. There have been more scents I have disliked from company than one's I have liked...and I am not saying this to be mean. All of my reviews are meant to help companies tweak the way they do things (not that they are reading my blog), so please do not think I am attacking this company in any way. There are many other people who have not had the best of luck with this company, so obviously there are kinks to work out. There are plenty of scents from my favorite companies I have not been a fan of, but that never stopped me from buying from them. I'm willing to give GKC another order, but I might have to do a lot more research before jumping into it.

Granny's Kountry Candles' Snowman Poop
Cold Rating: 4.5/10; the weird artificial cream smell is too big to ignore, but I gave it the benefit of the doubt. The vanilla in there smells just okay.
Lit Rating: 3/10; definitely not a fan...I don't know what it is, but it was not good. The vanilla was muted and pretty much all you end up with is maple-scented cold cream.
Throw Rating: 3/10; hardly any strength, thank goodness. Even though it wasn't strong, I could still smell it since I was laying on our bed watching a lingered over towards the pillows and yuck.
Overall Rating: 3.5/10; not my favorite GKC scent. Not knowing if snowmen poop. If this is what it smells like, then no thanks. Should have been fun and whimsical but instead it reminded me of something awful.


  1. I am very happy with the cinabun scents from GKC, but I agree with your review of snowman poop and especially "burn your ex". girls wanted to buy it then they would pop it open and smell it with a look of disappointment. It was pure strawberry when what you expect is a drakkar like scent. it needs to smell like cologne.

    1. Some GKC scents are amazing and strong, but others are did you get those notes in this scent?! LOL! I hope you have luck finding some GKC scents you really enjoy, but most of them fell flat for me, unfortunately. :(
