Melt-A-Palooza: Tiffany Candles Donut Shop Family!!

It's no secret that I love Tiffany Candles. She was one of the first vendors I ever purchased tarts from online (I think I made 3 small orders during the same week: one was Kim's, one was Front Porch, and the other was Tiffany Candles!).

Well, just in case you weren't aware, she has a small line of scents in a Donut Shop Family! On the latest edition of Melt-A-Palooza, I review for you all of the available scents in this line! Come along for the sweet, fried ride!
Donut Shop is obviously the scent that started it all (I think? I'm assuming?). None of Tiffany's donut shop line has that overly fried scent, and that makes me a instant fan. Donut Shop is sweet, but has a touch of cinnamon in it, too. The new wax blend of this scent lasted a full freaking day, no joke! I enjoyed this one a lot, and I am looking forward to repurchasing this time and time again. I actually have one more, buried somewhere in a box! On cold sniff, 6.5/10. While warming, 7/10. The throw was a 6.5/10, for a total of 6.5/10, slightly rounded up. Great way to start the Donut Shop line!
Gooey Donut Shop adds marshmallow into the mix. This was the most surprising of the bunch, in my opinion! Many people have said elsewhere that they weren't particular fans of this scent. Well, I LOVED it. I might even say it was my favorite of the bunch. Again, amazing burn, lasted over 20 hours, through the night, and into the next morning. The marshmallow is really nice in here, it adds more creaminess to the already amazing Donut Shop. Again, pretty spicy, in my opinion. On cold sniff, 7/10. While warming, 8/10. The throw was a 6.5/10, for a total of 7/10! Will definitely repurchase!
Jelly Donuts is definitely my least favorite out of the 4 scents in her Donut Shop family. It used to just be straight jelly, but then they added her Donut Shop scent to include it in this line. I wish I would have liked this because I love jelly donuts...but I don't. At all. I tried, but the artificiality of the jelly is too much to get over. It's even "harsher" on warm throw. There was a faint scent of Donut Shop and the spice included in that scent, but the jelly....I don't know if it's raspberry, strawberry, grape...I couldn't even differentiate, it all smelled so icky to me. I had to turn off the warmer after about 90 minutes because it was giving me a headache. On cold sniff, 4/10. While warming, 3/10. The throw was a 4/10, for a total of 3.5/10. I'm not saying don't get this scent because some people dig it (I know that Gary, Tiffany's husband, posts about loving this scent a lot on their Facebook group), but it just wasn't for me. Sorry, Tiff!
We've come to the last scent, Ultimate Donut! This combines Donut Shop with Snickerdoodle. Again, another great scent (and this is coming from a "passing-liking" bakery person). Snickerdoodles are really nice sweet and spicy cookies. I've got a lot of history with Snickerdoodles. When added do Donut Shop, you get the cookie note added ON TOP OF the donut, for maximum bakery! I will repurchase this one, however, it only lasted 8 hours, which is fine by me! On cold sniff, 6/10. While warming, 7/10. The throw is a 6/10, for a total of 6/10!

That concludes this installment of Melt-A-Palooza! Hope you enjoyed! :)


  1. Nooooooo...Jelly Donut sounded so good!
    But I love snickerdoodles that Ultimate donut sounds even better!

    I'm bouncing right now between making an order with either Tiffanys or CFTKR or if I want to stick with FP and try some newer much to think about!

    1. Jelly Donut might be to your taste! It just was not to mine. Try it! :)

      CFTKR is going to be restocking scents pretty soon, I think she did some today and is working on more. Her website can be overwhelming! Tiffany's is great, too, if you want to try something, get one of her 2-wick candles...they are freakin' amazing! WAY better than B&BW's duds! :)

  2. I love her donut blends! I really want to try her new jelly donut because now she's mixing her old jelly donut with donut shop! Cannot get enough of these scents in the morning, yum! I mixed donut shop with bhg wildberry cheesecake and it was awesome :)
