Yes, it's that good!
I first bought the petite vase of this scent around Christmas and was surprised at how strong the small candle was. I figured the large candle had to be even better and purchased one soon thereafter. I was not disappointed! This candle deserves all the 5 star ratings because it smells exactly like creme brûlée (sugary maple caramel) and it is strong! No need to burn two at a time. Once again, the Pure Radiance line delivers. If you haven't tried PR candles yet, this is a great first choice!

Long burning, no soot
To address the performance of this candle: It is so long burning with an even wax pool within an hour. You don't have to worry about trimming a wick, and there is Zero soot from start to finish. It burned right down to just a smidgen of wax at the bottom and the wick kept burning even after the wax had almost totally dissipated from the jar. That nice sizzle/pop is so comforting and relaxing. The throw is strong but there is such a rich creaminess to the scent that it does not get sickening. There is not a lot of sugar sweetness to it surprisingly, so it pairs very nicely with just about any other vanilla scent. I've burned it with red velvet, and buttercream. Two candles that act as buffer candles that provide the sweetness to make a wonderful scent that smells like someone has been baking.
All around, a very nice candle to have in the dead of winter when you want comforting, rich bakery type scents. i do not think I would like to burn this in the summer however, due to the richness and depth of the caramel. Definitely would repurchase this one.

What's Not To Like
I received two of these candles as a Christmas gift. I absolutely love the design of the jar (so unique from other manufacturers), the fragrance, the crackle flame and that they are smoke-free so no cleaning the jar. I just had to buy more but to make them look even more special I purchased the glass candle holders as shown on the website. Please, Yankee Candle, don't discontinue these candles !!

I love this one!!
I bought 3 of these candles to burn during the Christmas season. The aroma of a creamy creme brûlée dessert is wonderful to me. I really enjoyed this candle with the Crackling LumiWick. You can really hear it crackle, too. Very nice and inviting on a cold, winter night.
Creme Brûlée has got to be one of top 3 candles I bought in Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons. I bought around 30 total. I highly recommend Creme Brûlée.

Love this candle! Always feel like eating it! It's very nice. I think the throw is best when in a smaller room. The only reason why I gave it a 4 is because the throw is not as strong in a larger room. It's just me! I like a strong throw. If lit in a smaller room, it's perfect!
