Review Summary:

Rating Breakdown:

  • Packaging/Presentation: The style jar I had is different than the one that is on the website now. My jar was larger at the bottom and tapered up slightly toward the top. It had a flat glass lid that fit snugly onto the jar. There was a label on top of the lid that indicated the company name and the scents that were included. That left the jar clean and free of labels. The variations of color for my different scents were subtle, but I could tell there were three different scents in the jar. The wax was essentially essentially varying shades of pale yellow/tan. The candle had two wicks. 4/5
  • Scent: Vanilla Shake Cake was very yummy - more rich vanilla than cake. The cake notes make it just a little sweet and very yummy. 4.5/5 Vanilla Nut Bread was actually my favorite of the three. It was rich and had a heavy nutty aroma. Super thick and heavy in the air. 5/5 Vanilla Pudding Bread was sweet and creamy, less heavy than Vanilla Nut Bread. 4.5/5 The vanilla in all three of these was smooth and creamy.   My favorite scent experience with this candle was at the transition zones - where one scent was still burning but the heat of its bottom layer was starting to heat up the layer underneath. Yummo! Overall: 4.5/5
  • Scent Throw: My candle started off with a moderate throw, but I think that had more to do with the narrower top of the candle jar than the scent (Vanilla Shake Cake). After the candle was burning in the wider part of the jar, the scent throw was fabulous. I know that's weird because the mouth of the jar was obviously still the same, but it's certainly what my nose perceived. It was incredibly strong when contained in a closed room. When I moved it to the large, open area, I could smell the candle throughout parts of the house. Enough for me to think: What's that smell? Then I would remember about the candle. Vanilla Nut Bread was the strongest. Giving all three scents 4.5/5
  • Performance: I obtained a full wax melt pool in very little time with the two wicks. The candle burned cleanly and I did not have to babysit my wicks. I got approximately 120 hours of burn time from this candle. No wasted wax. 5/5
  • Customer Service (if applicable): I've never had a problem when ordering from LOL. The TAT can be lengthy, but that is stated on the website. 5/5
  • Overall rating: 4.5/5 (Technically 4.6 but rounding down for scent throw.)
