Candles By Victoria August Sale Review Part 2

Goodness Mondays are absolutely horrible! But we all know what makes bad days better.... delicious candles! The second part of my order is bakery, fruity, drink, and customer create a scents. So lets get to it so we can boost our moods together!


Bear Claws- This will always be in our home in some shape or form because everyone loves it! Even the three year old! The first note that hits me first it that sweet, creamy caramel-y dough note. Don't let the yeast scent get to you because this mellows out so much once you put it on the burner. The middle note is a light nuttiness with raisins and for me the I do seem to pick up a very light sweet cinnamon at the end. The cinnamon isn't in the description so it may just be me.

Caramelized Pralines- Another top in our home. We all love Victoria's nutty scents and I did get a few in this order! Sweet, creamy, caramelized nuts. I pick up a cashew or pecan if you want to get specific on what kind of nut. ;oD  This is amazing and a must try!

Fair Day- I'm a sucker for any caramel apple scent and this is just as yummy as Victoria's caramel apple and spellbound. It's not quite as creamy as caramel apple or spellbound and seems to be a lot sweeter than both as well. But it's still good, and depending on how sweet you want your scent, I think it's a great idea to have all three!

Fudge Brownie- On cold throw, this smells like gooey brownie batter before I put them in the oven. This is the first time I've had this one so I can't wait to see what it smells like warm! I see this being a great mixer as well... maybe with a little marshmallow campfire and caramelized pralines to make some rocky road fudge or with peanut butter and banana and granny's pie crust to make a banana fudge peanut butter pie. Mmmmmm!

Honey Spice Cake- despite the name, I smell no honey which is a good thing! This is a great cinnamon-y cake with sweet caramel and a slight hint of pumpkin and gingerbread. This is the first scent shot I ever melted from Candles By Victoria and has been a favorite since!

Honey Vanilla Love Dust- One of the newer fragrances and I wasn't sure if I was going to like this. Everyone said it was the sexiest thing they've smelled. Even sexier than Johnny Depp, Ha! But this scent really is amazing. I make a shortbread bar smeared with peanut butter and then topped with chocolate butter cream frosting. This reminds me of my homemade chocolate butter cream icing I'm obsessed with. It's divine!

Marshmallow Campfire- a yummy creamy vanilla marshmallow with that wonderful campfire scent. Great for mixing or by its self. I love this with trick or treat.

Orange Clove- This is probably my favoritest (Yup, new word) scent from this order. It reminds me of the spiced tea/ Russian tea we make every fall and winter. I wanted to cry when I smelled this. I'll be purchasing this in the cube candle for sure.

Pink Cupcake- This is a cupcake smell, but I think I need to let it cure just a bit longer. I does smell yummy so I'm sure this one will get a lot better with a little time and warmed.

Pumpkin Apple Cinnamon Bread- This one is in my top three fall scents. A perfect blend of pumpkin, apple, sweet cinnamon, and bread. Perfection!

Pumpkin Cider- Smells extremely similar to apple cider because of the spices but with a slightly different sweetness because of the pumpkin. A great spin on a classic.

Pumpkin Pear Strudel- Wow this one is yummy too. A wonderful sweet fall fragrance. Sweet pumpkin with juicy pear and a very mild yeast-y dough note. The spice is wonderfully balanced and not overwhelming at all.

Pumpkin Pralines- Another top three scent for fall. Caramelized Pralines with yummy creamy pumpkin. If you're not a fan of spice, this is a fantastic one.

Spiced Pumpkin Chutney- I definitely get a creamy pumpkin with spicy cinnamon and clove and an underlying note of citrus zest. This is a great spicy pumpkin fragrance if that's what you're looking for!

Spiced Vanilla- a red hot cinnamon with a creamy vanilla. This would be a good mixer to use if you wanted a slightly toned down cinnamon.

Strawberry Danish- Another top 10 scent that I will always have. It is so unique and amazing and awesome. Everyone should try this scent at least once. The salty dough with yummy strawberry is so cozy and comforting. We all love this one here!

Vanilla Maple Pecan- I would put this one in the same category as granny's pie crust. It would be a great mixer as well as using it by itself. It's a sweet, creamy, slightly nutty scent. I picture the crust of a pecan pie when I sniff.


Apples and Oaks- An excellent sweet apple scent. I picture an oak barrel on the front porch of a country store on an apple orchard filled with ripe yummy Macintosh apples. This is one of my favorite apple scents and would be great for fall. There is absolutely no spice in this what so ever.

Cranberry Relish- This has jumped to the top of my favorite fruity scent list!  The apples sweeten this so it's not as tart as fresh cranberries. This is very pretty and very delicious.

Enchanted Apple- I would probably love this if I wasn't pregnant but right now my nose does not like it. I smell a strong perfume-y apple. I think it is the mix of citrus lime and peach that give it this smell to me. I do get a very faint green smell with the apple. It kind of reminds me of an overly sweet apple body wash. But let me just say that my husband loved this one. I will be sniffing again once I'm not pregnant anymore to see if my opinion changes.

Macintosh Apple- The best juicy, crisp, sweet, realistic apple scent ever. Absolutely amazing yall. Go get this one!


Apple Cider- An extremely spicy cinnamon with apples. There is a little tartness at the end but I like it. This is good but I do think there could be a touch more apple.

Chai Tea- Wow, this is good. Brewed tea with a very mellow cinnamon and honey. Very comforting and relaxing. I will be burning this once it cools down outside a little more. So nice and everyone should give this a go!

Mint Tea- A wonderful mint scent. Reminds me of Celestial Seasonings mint tea. Very nice.

Customer Creations:

Autumn Apple- Another one in my top scents for fall. The autumn leaves in here mellows the cinnamon in the apple cider scent to bring the apple more to the top of fragrance. This is what I imagine it would smell like if I was still living in the Appalachian mountains on a cool Autumn day while drinking a tall glass of apple cider. LOVE THIS!

A Hunk, A Hunk of Burning Nuts- Ok, I love this name, it's awesome. I smell banana. chunky peanut butter, and caramel. This is Elvis ( banana and peanut butter) and caramelized pralines. The pralines scent I think mixes with the peanut butter to give it a "chunky" smell. The caramel and banana makes this scent creamy as well. Awesome!

Eskimo Kisses- This scent is spearmint and vanilla bean noel. The vanilla bean noel really mellows the spearmint and makes it very creamy and sweet. This is so nice and if you're a fan of sweet snow, you'll probably like this one as well!

Sticky Toffeecorn- This is my second favorite customer creation right behind Autumn Apple. Once again, I love her nutty scents!!! This is Kettle Corn and Caramelized Pralines. It smells like caramel smothered popcorn with sweet nuts. Holy Moly I love it, this totally belongs in the realm of Victoria's Circus themed scents.

Under The Big Top- Strawberry, cotton candy, and a touch of nuts is what is in this one. I'm not a big fruity person, but I will be purchasing this one again for my daughter's room. It's so "bright" smelling with a super sweet strawberry with just a few nuts. Mmmmm...

Under The Harvest Moon- I have discovered that my nose just does not like they scent Why I Autumn. I so wanted to love this but all I smell is spicy powder. Yes, I know very weird. I'm nervous to burn it, but I will definitely have to and let you know how I like it warm. This scent is Why I Autumn and Leaves Type. I hope Leaves type comes out more when warm.

This will conclude my second part of my review for my August sale order. I'm going to do one more post on my adorable sweet treat candle and a little blurb about scoop some scent. Let me know if yall decide to try some of the scents or if you already have and how you liked them! I hope you guys are having an amazing Tuesday!
