Some candles smell good enough to eat! The Slatkin & Co. Salty Caramel Candle definitely falls into that category. It smells exactly like caramel popcorn that you’d get at a carnival.
If you have a sweet tooth and a nose for all things sugary, you’re going to swoon over this scented candle from Bath & Body Works! It’s over-the-top sweet, but it doesn’t give me a headache (surprisingly).
Too bad this blog doesn’t have a scratch-and-sniff feature because this is a candle you have to smell to believe!

Slatkin & Co. Salty Caramel Candle Review
I guess this is in continuation of my carnival-themed candle reviews since I’m following up the Slatkin & Co. Cotton Candy Candle review with a Slatkin & Co. Salty Caramel Candle review! Although this one gets top marks, and the other one was a total failure.
Mmm! If you invite someone over to your place and light this candle but they don’t see it, they’ll totally think you have caramel popcorn around. It’s a delicious and strong caramel scent that has a hint of salt and a yummy creaminess!
The name “Salty Caramel” sounded nasty to me, but in a way, that’s also what drew me into buying this candle. I had never smelled anything with this description, so I thought, “Why not?” I’m so glad I took a little risk and gave it a shot. But they should’ve totally called it “Caramel Popcorn” instead because this is way more appealing.
Within just a few minutes of me lighting the Bath & Body Works Salty Caramel Candle, my entire living room was filled with the fragrance. Very fast scent throw! This was definitely a Pro for me, but if you hate the scent or think it’s too strong, you’ll disagree.
I had absolutely no problems with the wicks burning or holding a strong flame. And the wax melted evenly, so I didn’t have to put up with tunneling/canyoning. Perfect formulation!
As with all Slatkin & Co. candles, the Salty Caramel Candle has a simplistic design that’s elegant and easy to tie into any home decor. I’m also a fan of the rubberized lined cover that seals in the fragrance a bit when you’re not using it.
When these babies go on sale (usually 2 for $20 USD), they’re a real steal because you’ll get a lot of burn time for your buck.
I believe the Bath and Body Works Salty Caramel Candle will be around until summer because of the carnival theme. So if this is a scent you’re curious to try or really love, make sure you get your hands on it before you play the violin of regret.
Final Verdict: 9/10
Those who love creamy caramel type of fragrances or really sweet scents will be jumping along with Jack over the candlestick. If a snack could be transformed into a candle, this would be it. This has a yummy, true-to-life caramel-popcorn aroma that’ll make you lick your lips.
Are you a fan of caramel scents, or are they too cloyingly sweet for you? Is there a scent you’d love to see in a candle but can never find? What are your favorite Bath & Body Works candles?
