Cafe au Lait (BBW)

Cafe au Lait from Bath and Body Works was part of their French line-up released this fall(ish).

My thoughts: it doesn’t smell like coffee with milk to me!

My other thought: It pales in comparison to YC’s scent with the same name!

The Scent: was nice…more like a creamy french vanilla though! I’ve never been to France….but I have been to Senegal (French-based cuisine) and The Netherlands (kinda close) and both countries drank strong, unflavored coffee. Senegal specialized in strong, bold, black coffee with a TON of sugar while the Dutch liked strong, milky cappuccinos. Anyways…..this scent didn’t seem Parisian to me….just a sweetened milk with vanilla extract. B-

The Throw: I used this guy as a tart…..and it was quite light! Nothing special here! C-

Not to put this candle down, but I’ve been looking for a pure coffee scent ever since YC retired their own cafe au lait candle…..this is NOT my replacement!

  1. I found a small jar of the Country Kitchen Coffee scent at the YC outlet a few weeks ago. On cold sniff it’s straight-up coffee with milk and a little plain sugar, but lit it takes on a strong caramel note. Not very milky, though.

    • Very true…it seems more like fresh coffee beans to me (which I love!)….but it’s an excellent mixer.If you are missing that milky note:
      Cafe au lait + french vanilla
      Cafe au lait + buttercream
      Cafe au lait + milk and cookies

      There are soo many yummy combinations! I have 1 tart of YC’s cafe au lait left 😦
