Do you like drinking coffee? Or are you like me? I don’t like drinking coffee unless it’s super sweet and has lots of caramel in it. But I love the way it smells! And in the fall when pumpkin flavours come out, all bets are off!
Even though it’s summer (and I love summer), I’m craving the fall. That’s when the best beauty products and fashion make their grand entrance. It’s also when the yummiest pumpkin products hit the supermarket, too. Like that old song by Nu Shooz says, “I can’t wait!”
When I went into the Bath & Body Works store recently, I had to grab the Slatkin & Co. Pumpkin Caramel Latte Candle because it sounded (and smelled) divine. It was also nice how there was a 2 for $30 CAD sale going on.
I really like this super-sweet caramel fragrance – makes my sweet tooth go buck wild!

Slatkin & Co. Pumpkin Caramel Latte Candle Review
Unlike the Slatkin & Co. Marshmallow Fireside Candle that I previously reviewed and said I was disappointed with, the Pumpkin Caramel Latte Candle is worth getting!
Caramel is definitely the most noticeable note. I smell a lot of coffee, too. As for the pumpkin, I really don’t notice it much because the caramel overpowers it by a long shot. Since I’m a huge fan of caramel, I don’t mind this. This may be a negative for you, though.
If sweet or gourmand scents make your nose turn up in disgust, this isn’t the candle for you. It’s sweeeeet! I’m sure that kids (and big kids like me) will adore it.
How Does It Smells Compared to the Slatkin & Co. Salty Caramel Candle?
The Slatkin & Co. Salty Caramel Candle is also super yummmmmy (and I highly recommend it). It’s also really sweet and the caramel stands out a lot. But it smells exactly like caramel popcorn – sweet, but with that slight touch of saltiness.
The Pumpkin Caramel Latte Candle by Slatkin & Co., on the other hand, has none of that saltiness. It’s all sweet, sweet, and more sweet! I find that it’s also creamier.
If you handcuff me (please don’t!) and force me to choose only one, my vote goes to Pumpkin Caramel Latte. Really tough decision!
The moderate scent fills up a room very well. It’s not suffocatingly strong. It doesn’t make you run for a paper bag to hyperventilate into. It’s a very soothing, full-bodied caramel scent that’s warm and homely. You won’t have to sniff the air like a maniac to get a whiff of this delectable fragrance.
Woo hoo for a perfect-burning candle! I had absolutely no wick or wax problems. It burned evenly, and the flames didn’t die out. No complaints here – all praises!
And just like with all the Slatkin & Co. candles that I own, the wax takes many hours to go down even a little, so I know this candle will last a long time. 🙂
Again, like all Slatkin & Co. candles, it features a simple and elegant design. Nothing over-the-top. The picture features a latte with swirling foam and caramel goodness. (Makes me crave a fall drink from Starbucks.) Even though it looks nice, if you want to remove the label, that’s totally do-able.
The candle itself is a light buttery tan hue that definitely reminds me of caramel. Mmm…the more I look at this freakin’ candle, the more I’m getting hungry!
This is a new fall 2011 candle scent, so if you’re interested in it, I suggest you pick it up ASAP before it sells out. I’m not sure if they’ll bring this back next year. Sometimes if a scent is super popular, they’ll bring it back, but why take the chance when it’s as yummy as this? 😛
Final Verdict: 10/10
If you’re a fan of caramel, gourmand, and/or sweet fragrances, the Pumpkin Caramel Latte Candle will satisfy your sweet tooth for sure!
What’s your all-time favourite candle that you’ve ever tried? Can you recommend any other great caramel scents? Do you know of any good caramel-based perfumes (other than Bath & Body Works’ Vanilla Bean Noel, which I love)?
