Red velvet cake is all the rage in Southern California right now...is it like that in other parts of the country and/or world? Everywhere I go, I feel like I see red velvet ice cream/yogurt, or red velvet baked goods, red velvet candles, or red velvet flavored air...(and while I made the last one up, I'm sure you can get it in Las Vegas at those $20 per hit air bars, so technically I'm not joking???....). It's good, but it's not great.
Tiffany Candles sampler. It's dead on to what I think red velvet cake smells like in real life. It was pretty strong, too, and lasted about 7 hours. I am floored by Tiffany's ability to make realistic wax versions of real-life foods. This one was chocolatey and a touch sweet...I'm not sure if cream cheese frosting was supposed to me in this, but I swear I smelled that creamy, delicious note of frosting mixed in between cake and chocolate. If my actual red velvet cupcake/yogurt/air tasted as good as this smelled, I would be an instant fan for life.

Cold Rating: 6/10; right off the bat, you smell chocolate (which, in case you didn't know, is all red venlvet cake it, chocolate cake with a ton of red food coloring), and that's about it.
Lit Rating: 8.5/10; I am SO impressed with this scent! It is AMAZINGLY dead-on to red velvet cake, right down to a subtle cream cheese frosting kind of note! It is SO good!
Throw Rating: 7/10; the throw on this was pretty good, and lingered through the house a bit.
Overall Rating: 7/10; ridiculously close to the real thing and one of the best and more realistic cake scents I have smelled. Unfortunately, I am out of the 2 I had. Burning desire for cake again.
