Review: Tiffany Candle's Creme Noel

The very first night my mom's boyfriend came to dinner at our house, she asked me to make crème brûlée. "Sure," my beginning-cook self said, "that'll be easy!" Little did I know, it's one of the hardest desserts to make. I don't think it came out half bad, at least no one got food poisoning.
Creme Noel is crème brûlée mixed with vanilla bean noel, and is a scent that escapes me, even though I just melted it. All it smelled like was a super sweet and custardy vanilla. Nothing more to say about it. It wasn't bad, it wasn't good, it was the background. It was just alright. Nothing special about it. I wished it had a bit of pizzazz, so I ended up adding a tart of serendipity. That was a really nice, creamy blend! I enjoyed it, but by itself, meh.

Tiffany Candles Creme Noel
Cold Rating5/10; I just smelled a really creamy vanilla on cold sniff.
Lit Rating5/10; forgettable, unfortunately. Just a regular vanilla with a tiny bit of custard mixed in. There was maybe a slight hint of burnedness from the brûlée.
Throw Rating5/10; basic, middle of the road throw.
Overall Rating: 5/10; it was just okay, nothing else to say about it. Would I repurchase? Probably not by itself, maybe in a blend!


  1. Hmmm I was excited to try this one, bummer it just didn't do it for ya!

    2. I'm sure everyone else would like it a lot! It was just sort of...not my thing.
