I’m always a sucker for trying out new candles that are based on yummy hot beverages.
The Slatkin & Co. Hot Buttered Rum Candle was a must-try for me, especially since the salesperson at the store kept talking about it. I felt like I was beginning to drool!
Lots of people enjoy hot buttered rum especially during the holiday season, but y’know what? I’ve never had it. But if it tastes as good as this candle smells, wow!
If you’re a fan of sweet and rich-smelling candles, this one really delivers and scents your home beautifully.

Slatkin & Co. Hot Buttered Rum Candle Review
I found that the scent was true to its name. You can definitely smell rum that’s smoothly blended with caramel. While I’m not the biggest fan of the way rum or bourbon smells, it’s more likely the caramel and vanilla mixed in that are making me go crazy!
The Hot Buttered Rum Candle by Slatkin & Co. is a sweet and thick type of scent that permeates the air and makes it feel heavy. On a cold, crisp night, this candle does a great job at making your home feel inviting and cozy. If I had a Snuggie, I’d curl up on the sofa and read a good book while burning this candle.
The predominant note in Hot Buttered Rum is actually the rum and the bourbon. The caramel and vanilla assist both to make the end scent creamy and soft. It’s really delicious-smelling!
The Slatkin & Co. Hot Buttered Rum Scented Candle had a great scent throw. I’d rate it as moderate strength because you can easily detect the fragrance while it’s burning, but it’s not super strong that it hits you like a ton of bricks.
As you can see, the wicks I got with my candle were thick. I was quite pleased with their performance because the flames remained strong for the hours that I burned them. This ensured that there was enough heat in the container, so the wax burned evenly without any tunnelling (that leads to wasted wax).
I think I saw this scent come out around the same time last year (near the holidays). So I’m guessing that it’s one of those seasonal scents that is recurring.
Final Verdict: 9/10
If you’re like me and you’re a softie for sweet scents, this candle will hit the spot. It’s creamy and delicious-smelling with notes of caramel and vanilla that smooth out the rum and bourbon. It makes me want to try the actual drink!
