I’m not a fan of cranberry in general except when it’s in a tart sauce on top of turkey. So imagine my surprise when I randomly picked up this candle several times in the store and liked how it smelled!
(Yes, I’m that person who walks into Bath & Body Works and literally pops open 15 candles and sniffs the wax.)
Then Bath & Body Works had an online sale, so I felt compelled to finally purchase the Slatkin & Co. Frosted Cranberry Candle!
So what did I think of this winter candle when I burned it? There’s only one way to find out!

Slatkin & Co. Frosted Cranberry Candle Review
When they say ‘sparkling’, they weren’t making that up. I get a distinct ‘sparkling’, lively scent that’s bright. I could smell some tartness from the cranberry and the raspberry, but combined with the sweet strawberry scent, it was an interesting balance.
Slatkin & Co. claims that there’s ‘juicy peach’ – I can detect it slightly. It’s very much like a fuzzy-peach scent. I really enjoy how it adds a little something to the overall fragrance.
Now, I’m not normally a fan of strawberry scents. Usually I find them very artificial, and they tend to give me terrible headaches. The Slatkin & Co. Frosted Cranberry Candle definitely has an artificial-strawberry aroma, but it didn’t give me a headache, surprisingly! It must be the combination of it with the other fruits.
After smelling this candle burning for a long time, I have to say that while I like the scent, I don’t love it. But the only reason I don’t love it is because the strawberry note is as strong as the cranberry. If you love strawberry scents, you’re going to be over the moon for this one! It’s a nice little twist on your usual strawberry fragrance.
The Frosted Cranberry Candle by Slatkin & Co. has a very impressive scent throw. Within just a few minutes of burning it, I could already easily detect the fragrance. And after leaving it to burn even for just one hour, it completely filled my living room.
This is not a light fragrance, so I’d recommend that you use it in large areas so that the scent isn’t too overwhelming.
I’m pleased to report that the Slatkin & Co. Frosted Cranberry scented candle burned evenly – i.e. there was no tunnelling, which can contribute to wasted wax.
Also, the flames burned strongly. Looks like I got a good one – no drowning wicks! Yay!
The Frosted Cranberry scent is a recurring winter scent, so it will most likely return next year.
Final Verdict: 7/10
The Frosted Cranberry Candle by Slatkin & Co. had an impressive scent throw and a fun, bright fragrance. If they toned down the strawberry a bit, I think I would’ve enjoyed this more. Overall, I think this is a very different candle scent than the usual kind I’ve tried, so I’m happy to have it in my collection.
