A couple of weekends ago, Fiona and I made some delicious chocolate-chip cookies from scratch.
Being a total Swatch And Learn devotee, it reminded me to do a Slatkin & Co. Homemade Cookies Candle review.
If the thought of sugary-sweet scents alone is enough to give you a headache, this isn’t for you.
But for people out there, like me, who swoon over bakery fragrances, you’re in for a treat. And you won’t have to get any mixing bowls dirty, either!

Slatkin & Co. Homemade Cookies Candle Review
The Slatkin & Co. Homemade Cookies Candle has a fragrance that grew on me. Upon first sniff, I curled up my nostrils (or at least I imagine that I did it like a cartoon character). But after I smelled it more and more, I started appreciating the sweet but not cloying scent.
It’s worth pointing out that while the Bath & Body Works Homemade Cookies candle has a large picture on the front of chocolate-chip cookies, that isn’t what you smell at all. The fragrance is very mild, and you can definitely detect buttercream and vanilla. But the chocolate chip is M.I.A.
Also, to fill up a small-to-medium sized room, you have to let you candle burn for a while. It doesn’t have a quick scent throw like the Slatkin & Co. Frosted Cupcake Candle, which I previously reviewed.
The first time I lit the Slatkin & Co. Homemade Cookies scented candle, the wicks burned perfectly – no problems to report on that front. It also burned clean all the way down to the bottom (where the metal rings are that hold the wicks in place).
Final Verdict: 8.5/10
The Slatkin & Co. Homemade Cookies Candle has a very yummy smell that’s not overbearing or sharply sweet. It features a soft scent that reminds me of when my mom and I used to bake cookies together when I was a kid.
Did you get your hands on this candle? What other cookie-scented candles have you tried and loved/hated?
