Whoa – it’s been quite some time since I reviewed a scented candle on here!
The most recent one I’ve been burning is the Bath & Body Works Merry Cookie Candle, which (obviously) came out around Christmas.
Although it’s harder to find now, you can still spot a few on clearance.
The packaging is cutesy, and the scent will have you drooling like one of one of Pavlov’s dogs!

Bath & Body Works Merry Cookie Candle Review
If you enjoy gourmand fragrances like I do (such as the Slatkin & Co. Homemade Cookies Candle), this will be up your alley.
It has the same type of cookie-dough aroma that’s sweet and vanilla-based. And you’ll also be able to detect the heavier baked-goods scent from the creamy butter.
This is the type of scented candle that I adore because it smells edible. (But, no matter how curious you are, please don’t eat the wax…or you may wind up on that show on TLC called My Strange Addiction!)
Merry Cookie Candle by Bath & Body Works wafts nicely in a medium-sized room and then completely saturates it with a moderate-strength scent. I was very pleased with the scent throw because it didn’t take a long time to fill the room, and the fragrance was noticeable – not too light, but not too strong, either.
While I’ve had a lot of good luck with my candles burning well, this one was just okay. I found that with the initial use, the flames weren’t as strong as they are with Slatkin & Co. candles I’ve tried before. (This one isn’t a Slatkin & Co. candle, but the design is so similar, I can’t help making the comparison.)
Subsequent uses and regularly trimming the wicks prior to each use helped. Now the flames are strong.
This came out during the holiday season, so it won’t stick around long. And there are no guarantees that it’ll come back next year. For this reason, if you really like this candle, I suggest that you snatch it up quickly before you regret it!
Final Verdict: 9/10
The Bath & Body Works Merry Cookie Candle smells absolutely delicious! I highly recommend you get it if you enjoy cookie and dessert fragrances. Just be careful – it may make you crave something sweet!
