Okay, so I was on a nail-art roll for my last few consecutive posts. Thought that I’d change it up just a little, but keep the food theme going. (I really must be hungry! Hehe…)
Anything with the word s’mores in it immediately gets my attention. C’mon…who doesn’t like yummy marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers? It reminds me of all those happy nights by the campfire – great summer memories when I was growing up!
It also reminds me of the time not long ago when I tried to make s’mores using my stove. Let’s just say that it didn’t exactly turn out right. There’s something about holding your marshmallows on a twig over a roaring campside fire that makes it taste delicious.
So when I saw the new Slatkin & Co. S’mores Candle, I was all over it like the hungry beauty wolf that I am. Clearly, gourmand fragrances excite this blogger’s snout.
Since the Bath & Body Works s’mores candle is so new, I could only get my hands on the trial-size, which is a mere 45 g (1.6 oz.)! But that’s okay because unlike the incident I had with the Slatkin & Co. Cotton Candy Candle, at least this time I could test it without having to invest a lot if I didn’t like it.
Did the s’mores scented candle flop, or did it make me flip for joy? There’s only one way to find out!

Slatkin & Co. S’mores Candle Review
The S’mores scented candle by Slatkin & Co. smells scrumptious! I can detect the marshmallows and a hint of chocolate. There’s also a slight sweetness that reminds me of graham crackers.
If you’re into sweet, foody scents, you’re going to love this. It’ll totally remind you of the real thing. But be warned – it’s gonna make you crave s’mores like crazy! At least that’s what happened to me!
I tested this candle out in a small room because it wouldn’t be fair to expect it to work well in a large open area. (When the large candle comes out in this scent, I’m definitely going to get it for my living room.)
The scent was mild enough not to give me a headache, but it was noticeable enough so I didn’t feel like I was literally just burning wax. Overall, I was pleased with its scent throw.
If you’re expecting to be slapped in the face with a strong scent, you’ll be disappointed. This is definitely a more understated fragrance.
This was my first experience with the 1.6 oz. candle, and I have to say that I don’t like the way it burns. Yes, it does burn evenly without getting that canyoning effect, but the flame kept going out after burning it for 1 hour straight. I’d have to let it cool, trim the wick, and light it again, which was annoying.
I much prefer the large candle size because I rarely have wick issues with it.
My suggestion is that if you like this scent, just wait for it to come out in the bigger size. The scent throw will be even better, too.
They say that good things come in small packages. This is such a cute package! For some reason, I picture my mom’s cat, Pingu, using this candle because it’s the right size for him. (Yes, I sometimes think about Pingu going about his business in a very human-like manner.)
The photo on the front makes me drool just looking at it. In between two rectangular graham crackers, there’s a melting mountain of goodness – marshmallows and dark chocolate dripping! Oh gosh – writing about that is making me hungry for it now. (I’d better not accidentally eat the candle in my sleep tonight! Eww…And no, that has never happened before in case you were wondering.)
Like many of Bath & Body Works candles, I understand that this one will be only available for a limited time, so if you like it, get it. But you don’t have to rush out just yet. It’s still brand-spankin’ new, so it’ll take some time before the small and large candles of it hit a store near you.
These small suckers are so wallet-friendly! I appreciate that since I’m on a budget. Plus the 3 for $5 USD deal they have lets me try a few different scents without having to commit to the full-size.
Final Verdict: 9/10
I didn’t give it a perfect score because of the wick issue I mentioned. Other than that, I think this is a delicious-smelling candle that the little kid in you will go nuts over!
Will you be snatching up this candle in the larger size? Are you like me and still try to make s’mores at home? Do you add anything else to your s’mores other than the traditional ingredients? And one more question – can you make some for me the next time you go camping? (Hehe, it was worth a shot!)
