Lightning Round Reviews #4, Bakery Edition!

To make up for lost review time, here's a lightning round of reviews, bakery style!
Closet Full of Wax's Sugar Fruit Loops Cookies
Cold Rating: 5.5/10
Lit Rating3/10
Throw Rating2/10
Overall Rating: 3.5/10 (you definitely get a bakery-ed out fruit loops scent on cold sniff...but there's absolutely no throw to this, which means no scent was produced. Even right on top of it, nothing. I am saddened by this, this scent had potential).
Tiffany Candles Sugar Cookies
Cold Rating6/10
Lit Rating7.5/10
Throw Rating6.5/10
Overall Rating: 6.5/10 (A very almondy sugar cookie scent, and would be an amazing blender scent. By itself, it's nice, medium throw, too).
Skinny Dip Soaps Lemon Sugar Cookie
Cold Rating6/10
Lit Rating4/10
Throw Rating3/10
Overall Rating: 4.5/10 (slightly rounded up, but not by much...there was hardly any scent to this one, either; on cold sniff, you get a nice sugar cookie with lemon, but cold sniff left a big something to be desired).
Ollie's Soaps Pink Vanilla Butter Fudge
Cold Rating: 6.5/10
Lit Rating: 5.5/10
Throw Rating6/10
Overall Rating: 6/10 (not my favorite pink vanilla butter fudge scent, but this one was nice, minus the initial super buttery scent while warming; once that dissipated, it was just fine).
Tiffany Candles Butterscotch Drizzle
Cold Rating5.5/10
Lit Rating3/10
Throw Rating: ---
Overall Rating: 4/10 (I didn't give this one a throw rating because I dumped it out before it completely melted...something about this smelled like icky curdled milk...the butterscotch added to wherever the milkiness came from was not pleasant. Might be a good blender scent, but by itself...not a fan).
Front Porch's Vanilla Confusion
Cold Rating7/10
Lit Rating7.5/10
Throw Rating: 7/10
Overall Rating: 7/10 (this one was really nice! It smelled like vanilla extract mixed with bakery vanilla mixed with some other kind of vanilla...I can see where the "confusion" comes from, but I enjoyed it a lot).
Front Porch's Angie's Famous Cupcakes
Cold Rating6.5/10
Lit Rating6/10
Throw Rating5/10
Overall Rating: 6/10 (not a super strong throw, and super buttercreamy, but nonetheless, it was alright. Not my favorite bakery scent, but it'd do in a pinch).
Sugar & Spice Gourmet Soy Candles Sugar Cookie Dough Noel
Cold Rating8/10
Lit Rating10/10
Throw Rating: 10/10
Overall Rating: 9/10 (I got this in a swap I did with YouTuber suukasi, aka Karen, and I am FLOORED by this scent. It was strong, decadent, delicious, mmmmm...my niece picked out this scent when we melted it a few weeks ago, and the kids loved it. The entire house smelled like freshly baked cookies for an entire day! AMAZING blend, I highly recommend it).

Hope you enjoyed and found something you're interested in trying! :)

  2. I have been super impressed with Sugar and Spice too! I melted Fruit Loops Fluff Cake and I got an intense throw for about 8-10 hours and then a lighter throw for the next day. Amazing!
