What did my candle smell like?
Are you ready for fall? To me, nothing screams fall like a spicy and warm pumpkin scent and Scentsational Soaps and Candles version was pretty good.
Before I get into the fragrance, let me tell you a bit about the candle…. My candle was 14 ounces and in a standard whiskey style clear glass vessel. The wax was a creamy ivory color with one centered wick. The candle came in a lovely gold organza bag. The picture above shows a yellow organza bag so colors may vary depending on order to order. Not sure on that.
Here is the scent description I pulled from their website:
The Pumpkin candle blends the warm and spicy smells of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla to create a buttery and delicious aroma, as if pulling a freshly baked pumpkin pie from the oven. This is a luxurious fragrance that you will enjoy year round.
First impression, my nose picked up on a few things in the scent description. Warm pumpkin, vanilla, and cinnamon. Very nice. It didn’t smell like pumpkin pie to me though. It was missing that buttery crust and nutmeg – but it definitely smelled like that warm pumpkin pie filling…. Yum!!
Time to find out how this candle burns!
I lit this candle in a small bathroom to start out and within 30 minutes or so, a sweet pumpkin aroma was wafting through the room and it was very warm and comforting. This candle was perfect in a small room so I’m glad that’s where I started it. Anything larger and the scent would have been lost.
The aroma… a nice and warm pumpkin that truly did smell like pumpkin pie filling. Warm and inviting.
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle an 8 in a small room. 6 or less in a medium room. This is definitely a candle you’ll want to burn in a small room for optimal scent throw.
This candle burned pretty good. It did have a sketchy start where it tunneled for a bit but it soon righted itself for a perfect burn.
Closing to my review:
I enjoyed this fragrance. Just keep in mind it was on the lighter side so should you try it, I would stick to a smaller room.
The aroma… a yummy pumpkin pie filling. At least that’s what my nose detected. If you smelled something different, let us know.
