THIS IS THE BOMB.COM: Cinnamon Spiced Vanilla



Products: candle
Area used in:  living room
Time Period: whenever

Description: The delicious fragrance of rich vanilla beans sprinkled with sugar crystals and freshly ground Mexican cinnamon

So this was the only candle candle in the entire Taco Bell collection that I wanted and only because I heard thru the grapevine that it was a repackage of the original Cinnamon Sugared Doughnuts..which I only had 2 left. Having smelled it in the store and confirmed that it was good ol CSD of yore and I for one couldn't be happier!

Performance-wise, it burned like a champ; super high flames and the wax pool was deep and even. The wicks are kinda flimsy; they had mushroom tops that crackled and popped and would eventually fall off into the wax. Throw-wise it has the strength as the original CSD which wasn't much, about a medium. The scent lingers forever after you blow the candle.

There's really not much to say about the scent - as I stated earlier, it's a repackage of the original CSD from 2011-2014. All you newbies to BBW whose first CSD encounter was the god awful versiion from the White Barn Market collection, I do feel sorry for y'all! Take a good whiff of CSV, that is how CSD is supposed to smell!

Now, can I talk about the name for a sec? Cinnamon Spiced Vanilla..kinda basic right? What exactly is Cinnamon Spiced Vanilla? Cinnamon Spiced SUGAR,si! Cinnamon Spiced Vanilla, no! And let's be real, the scent smells like churros; even back in the day people siad that CSD smelled like churros ..why couldn't BBW call this scent "something something Churros"? Makes sense, churros are a Mexican treat and this is a Mexican themed collection.Cosas que te hacen decir "hmmm?"

It's wonderful to have this scent back even if it is under a very basic whitebread name. Apparently BBW didn't lose the formula for this scent so hopefully in the future BBW will stop releasing that hot mess WB Market version and bring back the original.
