Fragrance: Apple Crisp
Scent Strength: Light/medium
First impression of Apple Crisp:
I’ve always been attracted to apple scents, pretty much all year long. Apple is such a universal scent. It can be fresh, spicy, bakery and warm with endless blends and variations. When I spied Apple Crisp on a display at Pier 1 not long ago, I was immediately drawn to it. The candle itself looked bakery and inviting with its dark red jar, rustic label and flat cork lid. It even had thick twine wrapped around the neck of the jar several times and then tied in a blow to finish off the look. I loved it!! See picture above for visual reference.
The best part…. this candle was a sizzlewick, my favorite type of candle at Pier 1. What’s a sizzlewick? It’s Pier 1’s version of a wood wick which are so fun to burn with their rustic flair and sound effects.
Now onto the scent itself… Mmm!!! This candle smelled like warm apples and spicy cinnamon. Very warm and country and so, so inviting!!
Here is the scent description I pulled from Pier 1’s website:
We combined savory spiced apples, sugared cinnamon and a touch of lemon zest to evoke the flavor of a delicious apple crisp—all in a decorative jar that’s pretty enough to give or enjoy for yourself.
Yum!! To me, this candle smelled like an old fashioned country store… that moment you walk through the door, warm cinnamon explodes all around you. That’s what this candle smelled like – spicy cinnamon with hints of apple.
Time to light this candle!
I started this candle in a medium size room to test in and I’m happy to report… it did pretty well. Once I lit the wick, it took a good hour to reach a full melt pool and from then on out… a spicy and sweet cinnamon apple wafted all throughout my guest bedroom. It wasn’t an apple pie or a bakery apple. It was more of a classic cinnamon with sweet apples in the background. Very warm and very cozy. Loved it!
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle a 6 in a large room. 10 and above in a medium to smaller rooms so if you like your candles strong, definitely stick to a small room to burn this candle in.
My candle burned pretty good. It did struggle a little bit about half way down to reach a full melt pool so a little bit of wax was left along the edge of the glass wall but it wasn’t too bad. It did eventually right itself for a clean and even burn.
Closing to my review:
I really enjoyed Apple Crisp and would totally purchase this candle again. If you love classic cinnamon scents, you’ll likely enjoy this one. Add the crackle and pop with the sizzlewick and you’ll be in heaven. These candles are always crowd pleasers.
Happy candle hunting!
