I received this 24 ounce Blueberry Cheesecake large jar candle from Goose Creek. These large jar candles retail for $27.99, and this fragrance comes in other forms, such as wax melts, plug-ins, room sprays, tea lights, votives, centerpiece candles, folk art jars, and medium jars. This blueberry candle is currently on sale at the time of this post!
My first impression of Blueberry Cheesecake, on cold sniff, was that I picked up on a strong, sweet blueberry note that made me very happy. I love blueberry fragrances and the scent appeal of this candle is 5 out of 5 stars for me. As I continued to smell the candle cold, I did pick up on a cheesecake or cream cheese note. It isn’t overpowering at all, but it is a nice, subtle companion to the blueberry. When the candle is lit, I get about the same ratio of blueberry to cheesecake as I did on cold. I don’t get any bakery or vanilla notes in this fragrance, like many other foodie or dessert candles contain. The scent and throw of the candle is medium-strong, but not so strong that it would kick anyone out of the room. I could smell Blueberry Cheesecake in the other rooms and halls of my home as it was burning, and the scent lingered well after extinguishing the flames.
What I love most about the Blueberry Cheesecake candle is that it performs really well each time I burn it. The two wicks help the melted wax pool out evenly, so I don’t have to deal with issues like tunneling, and I get a clean burn each time I light it with no sooting as well. It is a win-win: the wax pools out quickly enough that I can start smelling the scent soon after the candle is lit, but it does not burn too quickly, so I can keep the candle lit for a while without worrying about burning through too much of the product.
I’m very happy about adding another well done blueberry scent to my collection. I would recommend this candle to anyone that enjoys sweet, fruity scents, especially berry desserts. Although I would mainly burn Blueberry Cheesecake during the spring and summer months, this is also a candle that I would reach for any time of the year.
