OMG y'all....OM-f***ingG!!! I LOVE THIS SCENT SOOOOO FRIGGIN MUCH!!! WHERE DO I BEGIN?!!!
So even though this scent has been awhile for awhile (2010 or 2011?) I didn't find out about CSD until fall 2012..the "arial font" version. For some reason, I didn't buy it; I may have been still stuck in my anti-bakery scent phase. However so many people were goin apeshit for this candle (as well Sweater Weather) that year that I started to become a little intrigued. Because of it's popularity, many thought that we'd see it the following fall. Alas, instead we got the poor man's Apple Crumble, Cider Donut to everyone's dismay and dissatisfaction. But this year, BBW came to their senses and released it in the Spring Sweet Shop line.
Now as all y'all know, I'm not a big fan of bakery scents (although I have been coming around in recent months). Most bakery scents just smell too sweet for me to handle and more often than not they smell more artificial than genuine. Moreover if I wanted to smell a bakery item, I would simply buy said bakery item and actually eat it. However, I've seen the light! This candle has completely rocked my world enough to make me change my mind about bakery scents forever!!!
Performance wise this candle burned like a friggin champ! The flames stayed consistently high from top to bottom! No tunneling, no canyoning...just a perfect deep and even wax pool. Here's the problem...the throw! E'RYBODY has been complaining about how weak the throw is! This is not a candle to burn in a large room cuz the throw will get completely lost. I burned in the middle of my living room and I could barely smell a thing! But when I burned it in my bedroom and in the guest bedroom, it completely filled the entire room. Didn't knock me out but rather wrapped and enveloped me like a warm blanket, which I love! And the scent lingered for several HOURS after I blew the candle out!
The scent...OMG..the scent! It smells like a legit hot cinnamon sugared doughnut - a doughnut fresh out of the grease (you can even smell the grease) and rolled around in cinnamon sugar. When I was younger, my mom would make cinnamon sugar doughnuts from biscuits in a can (much like the doughnuts in the picture above). This candle totally brought me back to my childhood. The first day I burned this candle, I got inspired to make doughnuts like my mom used to make (same doughnuts in pic). Kid y'all not, the doughnuts and candle smelled just alike, I literally couldn't tell the difference. The scent is sooooo authentic, it's ridiculous! You smell everything - the dough, the grease, the cinnamon sugar! It's so crazy how amazing and legit CSD smells!
So in conclusion..BUY THIS CANDLE!!!! STOCK THE EFF UP!!! The 3wick disappears online a lot cuz sooooo many people buy it. So if it appears again and you see it, GET IT!!! If you see it in your store, BUY IT!!! This candle is that damn good!!!!
