Country Chunkie Candles


By ScentGirl



Country Chunkie Candles is owned by Kim and Gloria. They have an adorable website that is easy to navigate. Kim and Gloria have been making candles for 5 years. In addition to candles and lil chunkie melts they also sell bath and body products.

I will be reviewing 7 of their scents; Bird of Paradise, Butt Naked, Clothesline Fresh, CrŤme Brulee, Monkey Farts, Pomegranate, and Pumpkin Cheesecake.


Product and Price Information


Country Chunkie Candles` lil chunkie melts are 1.75 oz. The are packaged in plastic cups and sell for $1.00 each.


Bird of Paradise

I really enjoyed melting Country Chunkie Candlesí Bird of Paradise. Bird of Paradise is an interesting scent. It has a little bit of everything which I think will make this fragrance appealing to everyone. I was able to smell quite a bit of sweetness which I think that the bakery lover will enjoy. Complimenting the sweetness were fruit notes. On top of that was a light floral arrangement that added a nice complexity to the fragrance yet was never overwhelming.

Like all of Country Chunkie Candlesí wax products, Bird of Paradiseís wax was not dyed but instead had colorful chunks throughout the melt. Bird of Paradiseís chunks were orange. I melted this lil chunkie melt in my ceramic 25-watt (but I used a 40-watt bulb) tart burner in my houseís living room. I could smell Bird of Paradise throwing within 15 minutes.

Butt Naked

Country Chunkie Candlesí Butt Naked is a wonderful fruit type of scent. Butt Naked smells like a beautiful and fun combination of melons. This version wasnít as sweet as other versions that Iíve tried however, it did smell more complex. My nose detected a light floral background which added beauty to this fragrance. Butt Naked is a perfect scent for spring and summer.

Clothesline Fresh

Clothesline Fresh is one of the best clean type of scents that Iíve ever smelled. Those of you familiar with my tastes know that Iím not a clean type of scent fan. Usually they are too strong for me. However, Country Chunkie Candlesí Clothesline Fresh is a beautiful scent that smells like a lot of thought went into it formulating the oil. Kim told me that this is her own combination of oils thus making this an exclusive fragrance.

Like I said before, clean scents usually arenít my cup of tea because they usually throw very strong and end up irritating my head and sinuses. However, for some reason Clothesline Fresh is just right. Itís neither too strong nor too weak. Clothesline Fresh smells like clothes that have been washed and then left out to dry in the fresh spring air. Iím not an expert at describing clean scents so Iím going to try my best. I was able to smell ozone notes, fresh spring flowers, and powder.

CrŤme Brulee

If you are a bakery or vanilla fan, you have to try Country Chunkie Candlesí CrŤme Brulee. Within 5 minutes of melting this scent my mouth was literally drooling.

CrŤme Brulee smells like a rich custard with caramelized brown sugar on top. This fragrance smells so realistic and so delicious that you may not want to be around it if your are dieting because it will induce hunger.

Country Chunkie Candlesí CrŤme Brulee has brown chunks embedded in the wax. I melted this scent in my ceramic tea light burner in my master bedroom. I could smell it throwing within 5 minutes

Monkey Farts

I thought that reviewing a scent called Monkey Farts would be fun. Whatís not to love about the name, right? Country Chunkie Candlesí Monkey Farts smells like a trip to South America. While sweet candy banana is the predominate note, there is a background note of greenery which helps to add a touch of authenticity to this banana scent. I wont say if the fragrance of this lil chunkie melt is authentic to a monkeyís toot because Iíve never smelled one and I hope that I never do.

Monkey Farts has green chunks throughout. I melted this fragrance in my family roomís 40-watt electric burner. I was able to smell Monkey Farts throwing with in 20 minutes.

Pomegranate

I am in love with Country Chunkie Candlesí Pomegranate. Their version of Pomegranate is very different from the other versions that Iíve smelled. Most Pomegranate fragrances have a strong perfume note to them which I donít particularly care for. However, Country Chunkie Candlesí Pomegranate is more of a fruity and creamy kind of smell. I guess if you could make pomegranate ice cream, it would smell like Country Chunkie Candlesí Pomegranate

Country Chunkie Candlesí Pomegranateís has pink chunks throughout the melt. I melted this fragrance in the metal tea light burner in my family room. I could smell it throwing within 15 minutes.

Pumpkin Cheesecake

I didnít plan on including Country Chunkie Candlesí Pumpkin Cheesecake in this review because itís not really a spring type of scent. However, I decided that this scent deserves attention because itís one of the best pumpkin scents that Iíve ever smelled.

Kim told me that Pumpkin Cheesecake is one of her best sellers and I can smell why. Country Chunkie Candlesí Pumpkin Cheesecake smells like a real pumpkin cheesecake. I was able to smell cheesecake, sweet pumpkin, spice, and crust. This pumpkin scent is one of the richest smelling pumpkin scents that Iíve ever tried. Both cold and hot, it smells like the real thing.

Country Chunkie Candlesí Pumpkin Cheesecake has brown chunks embedded in the wax. I melted this scent in my metal tea light burner in my family room. Within 10 minutes I was able to smell this tart throwing. The fragrance could be smelled throughout my houseís entire first floor.
