I’m a sucker for bakery-scented candles. If it makes me think that the wax could be edible, I’m so there!
The Slatkin & Co. Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Candle from Bath & Body Works smells so yummy, you may have to remind yourself not to check the oven.
It’s exactly how you imagine this to smell, and it’s wonderful!
If Slatkin & Co. continue making bakery scents (which I’m sure they will), I’m going to be in a lot of trouble! 😛 (But I like trouble when it’s scented or in River City, Music Man!)

Slatkin & Co. Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Candle Review
The name of this candle really says it all. You can smell sweet raisins at the top of the fragrance, but it’s rounded out nicely with cozy oatmeal.
The brown sugar and vanilla extract may be there, but it blends with the raisin note.
For a mini candle, the scent throw for this one was pretty impressive. No, it won’t fill up an entire large room, but it will scent the air of a small one. I’m sure that if you get the large 3-wick version of this, it would be really strong.
Perfect and even burning! The wick didn’t drown, there was no canyoning, and the flame remained strong the entire time I lit it, which was for approximately 3 hours. (Don’t think you’re supposed to keep these mini ones lit for too long, but I tend to forget and let it burn…)
The cute size makes it fun to look at. And the yummy (yet elegant) graphic of the cookies on the front looked so edible that I just had to bake oatmeal cookies a while later (although I left out the raisins).
This is a new fragrance for fall 2011, so if you really like it, you should stock up in case they don’t bring it back next year. But if a scent is really beloved, Bath & Body Works (and Slatkin & Co.) are usually pretty smart and they’ll bring it back.
Final Verdict: 9/10
This candle smells awesome. The only reason I took off one point is for subjective reasons. Quite simply: I like other scents way better. That’s not to say this one isn’t good. It’s just that I tend to go for scents like Frosted Cupcake or Leaves. If oatmeal bakery scents are your favourite, you will love this one!
Did you buy any new candles lately? Now that fall is approaching, are you reaching for more pumpkin or spicy scents? Or do you love gourmand candles any time of year?
