719 Walnut Avenue: Caramel Cinnamon Roll Candle


Caramel Cinnamon Roll from 719 Walnut Avenue burned well. I am always surprised, as their wicks are spindly and the flame teeny as a wee babe. The throw on this one was a nice medium to medium-strong in the kitchen. It pooled like a champion. I am a tad disappointed with the lack of cinnamon in this (as it is in the name) but if it were called Caramel Buns it would be on point. I understand that maybe the company wishes to keep the spices tame, as some are sensitive to spice, but I LOVE spice. And if spice is in the name, gimme spice. I enjoyed this candle and look forward to trying more scents. This probably would not be a repurchase for me though. I need more spice.

  1. We've been loving the 719 candles this fall, and are anxious to dive into the winter scents. It's funny though, because we don't buy these during the spring or summer. Well, I guess we really don't burn candles much during spring and summer so I guess it makes sense. Nevermind me. lol

    1. They are really nice!! I am enjoying burning them too. It's funny you mention candle seasons. I kind of want to up my spring and summer candle burning, at least around my bathing ritual.

  2. This particular candle never landed at any of the five (count 'em) FIVE Walmarts in my area. I'm wondering if it has a lot of caramel as I typically don't care for this fragrance too much. If so, I'd feel better about not snagging one!

    1. Count yourself safe ;-) it is indeed heavy on the caramel Kevin. Sorry about not being able to find it though and tell for yourself. Hope you have been well!

  3. This was one of my fall favorites! Glad you enjoyed it. I agree that it wasn't heavy on the spice, but since my hubby is sensitive to it, it was a great option for us! In the case of candles that don't quite live up to my expectations I usually melt a complimentary scented strong tart along with it.

    1. Yes this is perfect for spice sensitive folks. But a disappointment for spice lovers with cinnamon on the label. I melt coordinating scents with candles too. I am very picky about scents complimenting each other. :-)

  5. Ooh this looks like another good one! I love caramel scents and cinnamon scents! Too bad the cinnamon scent wasn't as strong though.

    1. That was the only drawback for sure. Needed cinnamon! But as a caramel scent it was grand!
