Smells more like vanilla extract.
Call it birthday cake, call it wedding cake, maybe call it cupcake; it won't matter. One whiff of this fragrance and you'll be hooked. Lots of buttery, creamy, and vanilla notes make our Cake Fragrance Oil irresistible.

We did not experience acceleration or separation. After 24 hours the soap was brown and had a mild odor. The soap did start to gel with minimal insulation. After 30 days the soap was very dark brown and was stronger than after the initial cut. This fragrance is vanillin free, but other raw materials cause brown discoloration.
Smells more like vanilla extract.
Sniffing this after opening the bottle made me hungry. Smelled like butter, vanilla--yellow cake. That is until I made a candle and lit it. Then it had a chemical smell. I thought it was the wick and made a "tart" for the wax warmer, same artificial chemical smell. Perhaps I can make a cupcake candle or something for someone who I KNOW won't light it but wants a cute decoration.
I'm obsessed with this "cake" scent! Great throw
It's not "cake". It's an artificial vanilla smell. It's not a good seller for us in candles. It doesn't have a good cold throw.
im surprised this scent is getting bad reviews. I've been looking for a cake scent for so long and this one is the only one that actually smell like the cake batter you want to smell when you're looking for cake. no artificial notes at all! not too sweet, very gourmand of it! this is an awesome scent, please don't discontinue!
Did not like this one at all. It has a strange, chemical scent, like artificial sweetener. Was hoping for something more buttery and warm. Will see if it cures into something a little less icky.
The first time we smelled this, it brought us to tiers, tiers of joy. Getting customers to buy this candle is a piece of cake. We whisk our way through this fragrance, it is butter than any other. To those saying it's not any good, lay-er off! Smelling this, we've never (vanilla) bean so happy. Luckily, this scent doesn't seem to have a lot of, frosting, associated with it. There is absolutely muffin wrong with this fragrance, anyway who thinks there is something wrong with this fragrance is a total fruitcake.
Nope, will not buy again. Does not smell good at all. A nasty Vinalla smell.
I'm disappointed in this one! It is OK, but does not smell like cake. I was hoping for a cake smell like when you find in the stores, but this isn't it.
This does not smell at all like cake! Bought this for a wedding gift and the scent smelled nothing like cake! Would not recommend!
This scent was okay, but doesn't smell like cake. But to be fair, I've yet to find one that really smells like cake instead of just vanilla. Performed good in GB 464.
I made this fragrance into a candle. It did not smell like Cake. It smelled maybe like faint Vanilla. I was very disappointed.
I love this scent. My family asked me for a regular vanilla scented candle so I had them smell both Cake and Very Vanilla to see which they preferred. They all liked Cake better because it is a bit softer than the Very Vanilla, which has a stronger, deeper almost sultry vibe. Both smell like vanilla and are amazing, but Cake definitely has the butter cream icing element. Delicious! Great hot and cold throw with 464 soy wax. I honestly think more often than not the bad throws come from mixing at the wrong temperature than from the fragrance being subpar, although some certainly do turn out stronger, namely food scents is seems.
I'm typically a fan of this type of scent but not from here. Part of it is there but something else in there is just really far off with this one. Try a sample first. (3/10)
I can smell the difference between vanilla and this cake scent. Its a great scent throw and my candles can be any color to go with it. I left it as cake because you never know what the special occasion is. :)
This is a very nice vanilla, but I don't really smell "cake". I'll have to compare it to Very Vanilla and see which one I like best- both are very good!
Only bought this one based on the reviews. No hot scent throw and barely any cold throw at all. Very strange chemical smell to it, couldn't figure it out, but now I see others have had the same issue. Won't be keeping this one in my line.
This smells good, but I think it smells generic. It smells like any vanilla candle you might pick up at the dollar store. It was a forgettable smell.
This scent doesn't seem to have a good hot or cold scent throw and doesn't fill a room like the other scents I have. It's a decent mixing scent but not one I'll keep in my line.
Love, Love this. One of my daughter's friends asked me if I had this scent. I didn't, so I tried mixing French vanilla, sugar cookie and vanilla frosting scents and didn't come close. I got a 1 oz. bottle to try out and since I only make 16 & 21 oz jars, this didn't make a full 16 oz jar. so I burned it myself and I was hooked. My husband walked into the living room and asked what I was baking! Lol. I don't bake! As soon as someone walks in they ask me if I have any to sell so I am stocking up. This is one you can sell anytime.
Oh my gosh, yummylicious!!!! I decided to call this Cake and Cupcakes. Customers are loving it!! Reminds me of wedding cake actually, frosted in heavenly buttercream frosting. I think I need to create a cute little label that says something like please don't eat me, I'm not edible!
I love this one it is amazing not something that I would burn all the time but I do like it.
This fragrance is a delight to the senses! My daughter informed me this needs to be a regular in our line, I agree! Thanks candlescience.
P.S. I love your rating system it will help me decide on my next purchases!
The hot scent is awesome, smells just like cake. I use this for my candles and my tarts, Must have in mine line of candles.
I AM NOT SURE WHAT HAPPEND BUT AFTER I ADDED THIS FRAGRANCE AND RUBBED MY FACE THAT HAD OIL ON IT; OMG MY EYES WHERE ON FIRE. I THOUGHT THIS IS A BATH AND BODY FRAGRANCE, WHY IS IT SMELLING A LITTLE CHEMICALLY AND BURNING MY EYES?
Used in Soy wax tarts. Expected more vanilla. Strange chemical smell. No hot throw in soy. Tried this one based on reviews. ??? Stick with Very Vanilla.
Smells Great! Gives a great scent throughout the house. The throw is great with GB 464. Must try. I love this one.
I really like this fragrance, but I wish it had more of a unique flair to it. Sort of generic.
This smells like you have a cake in the oven. It has just the right amount of vanilla. Great throw in Comfort Blend wax.
I was scared because this scent had an awful chemical after-smell out of the bottle, but once it had cured for a few days in the soy candles that I poured - it was exactly what I had expected it to be! Great scent throw, too.
This is by far one of THE BEST vanilla based scents I have used in my soy candles! I usually have a hard time with a strong scent in vanilla, but this fabulous! Must try for soy candles!
