Introduction to my Stormy Mountain Candle review:
You may not have heard about Stormy Mountain Candles before, but folks in Connecticut sure have. After all, Stormy Mountain Candle Company has been hand crafting candles for more than 20 years so their local popularity is no surprise. Thanks to a sharp new website and a dedicated customer service mindset, Stormy Mountain Candle Company is ready to expand their loyal customer base. I’m telling you, this is just one more reason to embrace technology.
Stormy Mountain Candle Company has a clean, streamlined website that made shopping for a new candle simple and fun. Soy candles are their specialty, but they also offer reed diffusers, hand sanitizers, goat’s milk soaps, and even lip balm. I, of course, zeroed in on the candles and melts. The scents were set up into logical fragrance collections that were easy to navigate. I found my way to the kitchen collection and the floral collection for this review, but there were plenty more scents that tempted me. Their Home collection takes all the guess work out of making a home smell inviting and the Fruit collection has a list that I will surely be back for come spring and summer.

How did my candles from Stormy Mountain smell?
“A traditional base of vanilla custard with a hint of caramelized sugar”
Pumpkin Butter is described just as the name implies.
” Smells just like a piece of Grandma’s pie with a huge dollop of melting butter”
This scent seemed really interesting to me… I couldn’t wait to try it. I can’t recall smelling a pumpkin scented candle with butter before, and I’ve smelled my fair share of pumpkin scents. Since this was something new to me, I couldn’t resist checking it out.
Sure enough, I smelled rich, salty butter in this fragrance. Pumpkin Butter went easy on the sugar and spices and let the butter scent melt through. At first it reminded me of a pumpkin cheesecake scent. It had a similar dairy note but as the candle burned and established a decent melt pool, I could smell the butter clearly and for me it lost that cheesecake note entirely. The more this candle burned, the more I enjoyed the scent. The pumpkin part of the scent had a decidedly baked quality but wasn’t overly sweet, which made the combination of pumpkin and melted butter work well together… even better than I had hoped for.
“A true to life scent. Great way to honor the state flower. Thanks Connecticut”
The fragrance from this candle was light and pretty. It smelled similar to a jasmine scent and at times it also reminded me of lilac, but it was really it’s own unique fragrance. It smelled a little bit sweet and was definitely springtime fresh. The throw was light and airy as well, best suited for a smaller sized room. I experienced the same scent intensity with the melts as I did with the jar candle.

Closing to my review…
Shopping Stormy Mountain Candle Company’s website is a breeze. It’s well organized and uncluttered. The cart functions well and checkout is a easy with a credit card. Although they do not use Paypal, they accept credit card payment as well as checks or money orders. Of course, if you are fortunate enough to be in Connecticut, Stormy Mountain Candles are available in several locations there including the many Grand Union Family Stores.
I enjoyed all three of these scented candles and melts from Stormy Mountain Candle Company. The fact that they have so many other scents and products available makes me want to try even more from this growing company.
Keep your nose happy!
