What did my candle smell like?
Okay, I’m bummed. My local grocery store carries Village Candles – which I purchase from all the time. I bought a ton of their Kitchen Collection candles to review only to just find out they’re discontinuing this line. What???? I love these candles!! They’re all bakery and all so yummy. So I’ve decided I’m reviewing them anyway since I have a slew of them and they’re still around to purchase from online outlets as well as various stores such as Safeway – mine still has a huge inventory so I imagine they all do. With November in full swing, it was the perfect time to light up and review a Pumpkin Pie scent.
This candle smells yummy and described as:
“Pumpkin, brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla.”
I have to say… I can’t help comparing every Pumpkin Pie candle I burn now with Pure Integrity’s version which is my absolute favorite – ever! Village Candles version (I must admit) smelled pretty darn good. The label shows a fully baked pumpkin pie with whipped cream around the edges and center. Yummy!!!! First sniff…. I smelled a delicious baked pumpkin. I thought it was more pumpkin bread than pie but I still liked it.
I lit my candle in my favorite review room (my large master bedroom) and oh my goodness, within 20 minutes, the fragrance of pumpkin cake saturated my bedroom and adjoining open bathroom. The scent…. A delicious bakery and warm pumpkin…. It really did remind me more of pumpkin bread or cake than pie and I have to say… I didn’t care… the scent was divine!! A perfect and warm bakery pumpkin with hints of cinnamon and brown sugar. LOVED!!!!
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle an 8. It gave a night and strong medium throw filling my bedroom, adjoining bathroom and even spilling outside my bedroom door. Loved it!
My candle burned perfect. No issues. Clean and even burn with no soot.
Closing to my review:
I am so bummed this candle is being discontinued but I’m holding out it’s not. Maybe they’re moving their bakery line of fragrances to their classic rounds and just doing away with their Kitchen Collection. That’s my guess and my hope. Village Candle… are you reading this?
In closing… Pumpkin Pie was a delicious and warm bakery scent that will fill your home with the yummy aroma of pumpkin cake… sweet, warm and very inviting. I loved it and plan on getting more from my local store before they’re all gone.
If you love bakery pumpkin scents… this is a must try.
Happy candle hunting!
