Buttermilk Pancakes

What a disappointment! Buttermilk Pancakes was the very first tart I melted at my new house, and it had barely any throw!

I found this scent at a Yankee Candle outlet a few weeks ago and was excited to try it!

Buttermilk PancakesThe Scent: It was so light, I couldn’t even begin to describe this scent. It had some “cakey” and “buttery” notes….but beyond that, I can’t describe it. I was hoping it would smell similar to the new Belgian Waffles, but I can’t really say! D

The Throw: Both cold and melted, I couldn’t smell a thing! It was like I didn’t even have a tart melting! After a few hours, I gave up and switched to a jar candle. F

Overall, I hope that I find Buttermilk Pancakes again to give it another try. I always like to think that a no-throw tart could be a dud. Before I announce this new Yankee Candle scent as a waste of money, I’d like to give it one more try!

  1. You definitely got a dud! I was able to get hold of a Buttermilk Pancakes tart and it smelled WONDERFUL!!! If you ever find another one I’d recommend giving it another try. 🙂

    (Also, I think it’s rather an old scent as I got my tart about two years ago and I found reviews of this scent dating back to 2002.)

    • Martina,

      Thank you so much! I am so happy to hear I got a dud because I’ve been wanting a non-maple pancake scent so bad (Belgian Waffles is hitting the spot for now)

      I hope this means it’s coming back as a treasure (or maybe it did and I missed it?) 🙂
