What’s That In My Melter? Campfire Treat Votive, Yankee Candle Company

I recently melted a Yankee Candle votive in the scent Campfire Treat. I put the 1.7 ounce votive in my bulb melter (40W) bulb. Loved this. This was more about the smoky campfire smell with the scent of sticky marshmallows secondary to my nose. Maybe a touch of musk? I’m not quite sure. But I found this a grownup sweet scent, not sticky sweet or cloying. Very pleasing to my nose. The scent throw was moderate, so I’d want a large jar if I tried this in jar candle form. yankee-candle-campfire-treat-votive

The shared experiences of childhood resonate powerfully in this fragrance that remarkably captures all the sugary notes of a marshmallow toasted to gooey perfection. You’ll almost hear the laughter and singing, and feel the joy of a night around the campfire with family friends. But there’ll be no need to lick the sticky remains from your fingers!

Have you tried Campfire Treat? Was it more smoky or sweet to you? 

Happy candle burning ~

  2. What sets this scent apart from Yankee’s Merry Marshmallow and Ghostly Treats is the smokiness that those 2 scents do not have. Those are just too sweet for me and not very special but Campfire Treats, with the added smoke notes, makes it much more unique and enjoyable to me (called Fireside Treats in the UK).

  4. I melted both this one and the Merry Marshmallow in the last few weeks. I agree that this one does have a smoky quality and is less sweet; the Merry Marshmallow was sweeter. Both were light to medium scent throwers and I probably would hesitate to buy the candles for this reason.
