Introduction to my Harry & David Crisp Mountain Apple review:
Harry & David is a well known company for their amazing pears and gourmet gift baskets but did you know they now have a candle line? Harry & David… CANDLES!!!
I purchased a few of these beauties at my local grocery store last year and I have to say… major “candle find!” I love these candles! They only have a handful of scents that I can find but what fragrances they do offer are pretty awesome.
So where can you purchase these candles? It’s not easy finding this brand but once you do, definitely buy a few to try… I think you’ll be happy with your purchase. All the scents I’ve tried so far are strong, true and beautiful to look at. They’re not available on Harry & David’s website – you can only purchase them through gift shops and so far, quite a few grocery stores. I also found a few online shops that offer a variety of these candles but not many so it’s luck of the draw finding this line. We are getting so many inquiries and searches on Harry & David candles that I decided I wanted to review them all for Candlefind.
This review centers on their Crisp Mountain Apple scent.
What does my Crisp Mountain Apple candle from Harry & David look like?
This candle is a beautiful apple red. It’s in a square 16oz glass jar and double wicked. The lid on this candle is copper colored with a scrolled Harry & David font embossed in the center of the lid. The label is clear and has a picture of fresh picked apples on it with the Harry & David logo above the picture. Very classy and well done.
What did my Harry & David Crisp Mountain Apple candle smell like?
Who doesn’t love a great apple scent? I seriously don’t know anyone who doesn’t. It’s classic, simple and STRONG!! Almost every variation of apple I’ve tried is authentic which means it’s almost impossible to screw up… a sure winner when you’re after consistency and it’s also a great all year around fragrance to burn. I couldn’t wait to light this candle as soon as I purchased it. Scent description I could find online for this scent:
“Fresh, clean scent of crisp and juicy apple.”A basic description but accurate. Smelling this candle right off the shelf, it smelled exactly like a crisp red apple. Strong and sweet with very little tartness – no green apple going on here. This candle is also a room filler. I lit this candle in a large bedroom and within minutes, I could smell the fragrance. Within a half an hour, the scent was throughout the room and beyond. Loved it!! On a scale of 1 to 10, this one is at least a 9.
How did my Crisp Mountain Apple candle burn?
I had a bit of trouble with this specific candle, I’m hoping it was a fluke since all the previous Harry & David candles I’ve tried burned perfect.
It was difficult getting a full melt pool throughout the life of this candle so there was a wall of wax left behind. I don’t like any wasted wax so that kinda bugged me. The flames on the wicks were fine with very little maintenance needed. I would have preferred a cleaner burn.
Closing to my review of a Crisp Mountain Apple candle from Harry & David:
Loving Harry & David candles. Their products are top quality and their candles live up to this reputation. Crisp Mountain Apple was pretty good, a true authentic apple scent that gave a nice strong throw. I wasn’t thrilled with the burn performance but my hope is, it was a fluke since all my previous candles were excellent.
If you’re on the hunt for these candles, check out your local grocery stores first. I’m finding quite a few in my area that carry this brand and I live in a small town. Online searches produce different retail outlets as well.
Good luck in your candle search and as always… happy candle burning!

This candle is exactly what you want your house to smell like when you think Apple. Most Apple is automatically accompanied by cinnamon(which is great) this candle is Apple only and trust me when I say you will not miss the cinnamon! It’s awesome! I did melt the sides as I burned it to keep it going as I burned down and it worked great. No wasted wax after reading the original review!
Best Apple candle out there!!Sandi on 2017-01-17 02:00:00
Crisp, clean apple scent! Not sugary, flowery but APPLE. Burns a long time! If you find them in a store, buy two!!
