First Impression of Pumpkin Spice:
It’s pumpkin season! I have so many pumpkin candles to review this month and Pumpkin Spice from Aromatique was first on my list to burn. This candle smells AMAZING! But before I go into the fragrance itself, let me tell you a little bit about the candle. You can purchase this fragrance in a variety of styles and sizes. The candle I received was from their holiday collection and what a pretty candle it was. The vessel itself was really unique – the glass was metallic with decorate modern style circles all throughout the glass. The wax color was a gorgeous burnt orange with one perfectly centered wick and the aroma…. Mmmmm!!!! A super spicy pumpkin with loads of cinnamon.
Here is the scent description from Aromatique’s website:
Fall botanicals infused with pumpkin and spices.
Aromatique isn’t very generous with their scent descriptions so I’ll do my best to describe this scent for you. Smelling the wax, I smelled cinnamon the most. This was a very spicy scent so if you’re a cinnamon lover… I’m pretty sure you would be in heaven when you smell this candle. It absolutely screams fall!!
Time to find out how it performs!
Because Aromatique candles are generally room fillers, I felt safe enough lighting this candle in my master bedroom. Once lit, it took several hours to reach a full melt pool and from then on out… the aroma of spicy cinnamon with hints of pumpkin filled my bedroom. The pumpkin was really subtle so this scent was mostly cinnamon. It was very spicy and warm – and perfect for fall!
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle a 7 in a large room. Not super strong but decent. In a small to medium room, I would give it a 10. The smaller the room, the stronger the aroma for sure.
This candle burned really slow. It struggled with each lighting to reach a full melt pool and at times, I had to use my wick dipper to push wax off the glass wall to make sure it all got used up. Very unusual with this brand. It did end up righting itself at the halfway point for a clean and even burn from then on out.
Closing to my review:
Pumpkin Spice was a nice and spicy fall scent and I really enjoyed it. I’m not sure I would say it’s my favorite fragrance Aromatique carries but if you love cinnamon, definitely give this fragrance a try. Would I purchase this candle again? Yes. But I think next time I’ll try burning it in a medium sized room as opposed to large for a better scent throw.
Happy candle hunting!
