Review Summary:

A rich caramel apple scent drenched in maple syrup on a base of vanilla cake.

The Bathing Garden has some adorable wax melts with great scent choices. I was glad I was able to purchase a few things with a restock in September. One of the scents I chose was Grinch Cake, and it seemed fitting to pull it out now.

Grinch Cake was a rich red colored clamshell wax melt with red and green beads on top. There was also a sprinkling of white on top, which was reminiscent of snow. Such a pretty wax melt! The cold sniff was intoxicating – a caramel apple scent with some oomph.

Sweet Apples, butter, caramel, cake, vanilla bean, and maple syrup

It wasn’t until I started melting this wax melt that I figured out what the “oomph” was…it was the rich, thick maple syrup. This was like a sweet caramel apple dunked in a layer of maple syrup. But this was far from a sickenly sweet scent – I think bathing-garden-grinch-cake-wax-melts-candlesthe vanilla bean and the yellow cake notes kept this one a bit grounded. It was really a fabulous scent and it had a moderately strong scent throw. I used this wax melt in 24W electric melters and bulb melters (with a 40W bulb).

This was a delicious scent and one I would repurchase again.

Happy candle burning ~

  1. I’ve heard great things about The Bathing Garden. I haven’t yet had a chance to try them out for myself but they are on my list of vendors to try. I love it when you have different colors and sprinkles and glitter on wax! It just gives it that extra OOMPH! so pretty Andrea glad you were happy with the scent choice!

  2. I love the name of this fragrance. You could burn this and watch the movie How the Grinch Stole Christmas and do a theme night. 🙂 Happy Holidays!
