Introduction to my review:
I’ve been really enjoying all the candles from Better Homes and Gardens this year and I’m *really* loving the wide variety of scents to choose from. It seems like a lot more this year than ever before.
I was attracted to Berry Pumpkin Cream the moment I saw it on the shelf at Walmart. The pretty dark purple color caught my attention and it smelled like a spicy berry cake scent. Mmmmmm!! There weren’t many on the shelf so I took it as a good sign this was a good seller and nabbed one to review.
These candles look very similar to Yankee apothecary jars down to the glass dome lids… even the wax looks similar. My candle was 18 ounces in size… the wax a beautiful dark purple. The label on the candle shows the Better Homes and Garden logo with a picture of 2 round pumpkin berry cakes with whipped cream on top. YUM!!
What did my Berry Pumpkin Cream candle smell like?
There was no scent description to be found for this fragrance so I’ll do my best to describe it for you. The picture on the label shows a pumpkin cake with whipped cream and fresh berries sprinkled on top so I think we can all guess what this scent should smell like. Smelling the wax, it smelled spicy… like a cinnamon spice cake with hints of berries and pumpkin in the background. Very fall’ish and cozy. Both berries and spice cake were blended perfectly so one didn’t stand out more than the other. I liked that.
Time to light my candle….
My experience with Better Homes and Gardens candles are that they’re pretty lightly scented so I stuck to a small bathroom to test this candle out. It performed perfect and surprisingly, it was a lot stronger than I anticipated…. it gave a very steady medium scent throw that filled my bathroom and beyond with fragrance. I was really happy with the strength of this candle.
The scent itself was a nice and spicy cake aroma… I couldn’t really detect much berry though… to me, this fragrance was a spicy pumpkin cake. Very warm, fall and inviting. I liked it and hope they keep it around through the rest of this year. It’s a perfect candle for fall.
I do recommend this candle if you love spicy bakery aroma’s.
This candle burned perfect! The wick stayed consistent and the candle achieved a full melt pool pretty quickly. I did have to keep the wick trimmed daily or the flame would get a bit out of control but that’s pretty normal.
Closing to my review:
I really enjoyed this candle and would purchase it again. In fact, I keep checking at my local Walmart to purchase another one but they’re always sold out. So it’s either already been pulled or it’s a great seller. Not sure which so if you see one and want it, I wouldn’t hesitate to buy it.
You can’t beat the prices of these candles so if you see other fragrances that sound interesting… don‘t feel guilty splurging… just keep in mind these candles are lightly scented and better suited burning in smaller rooms.
Happy candle hunting!!

I liked this candle too. It was different and a nice spin on pumpkin pie.
