Didn’t know if I would like it after reading the reviews but I’m glad I gave it a try. One of my best sellers. More of a coffee shop cake smell.

the worse

I, like others, was so excited to get this fragrance because I just knew it would be a heavy hitter. Boy was I ever disappointed!!! I stuck that bottle in the back of my shelf because what was I gonna do with it other than throw it and the money I spent in the trash because that's exactly what it is fit for. It smells like old cake after it has set up for while. 10/10 I definitely don't recommend.

We loved this scent in a candle. Smells like cake! Really glad that I took a chance on this given the wide range of reviews.

I was super excited to receive my order to try all the amazingly named fragrances I purchased however I was sadly disappointed and will wind up losing money on 6 bottles of fragrance with less than satisfying aroma. The cake fragrance had a weak scent It smelled more like dry pancake batter, super sad about this being this was my first time purchasing through candlescience and all the rave I hear of them I was hoping everything would be an awesome experience. Bummer. At least I am able to use 12 of the 20 bottles of fragrance I purchased. So there some hope left for me lol. Gotta think long and hard before I make another hefty purchase like this again lol.

No scent

There's only little sweetness to it but no cake smell. It smelled so weird.

Smells like vanilla cake batter

I tested this for a birthday candle I want to make and this scent definitely smells like vanilla cake batter. Not overpoweringly sweet. The scent lasted long after I blew out the candle too.

Not a fan, very little cake.

I really need a birthday cake scent in my line and other brands have a tendency to yellow. This one does not seem to yellow, but it doesn't really smell like cake either. Very light HT. Will try mixing with Vanilla to increase sweet scent.
