First impression of Pumpkin Pie:
It is Pumpkin Pie week and I’m on a roll burning as many as I can get my hands on. I have to say… I am super picky when it comes to Pumpkin Pie fragrances. SUPER PICKY! I prefer authentic pumpkin pie scents that are not too spicy but a scent that has all the ingredients you would smell in an actual pumpkin pie. I’ve found that’s not easy to find in a candle. Most pumpkin pie scented candles I’ve tried are always more of a pumpkin spice, heavy on the spice and clove rather than a warm bakery type pie. Either that or plain pumpkin pie filling type scents with little else. Not a big fan of those. Fast forward to receiving Madison Valley’s Pumpkin Pie. I was skeptical of course but as soon as I popped off the lid and smelled the wax, I smiled from ear to ear. YUM!! This candle smelled dead on accurate. Seriously!! My mouth was watering. Warm pie crust, pumpkin pie filling, cinnamon, nutmeg and whipped cream wafted all around me and it was too die for!!!!!
Here is the scent description from Madison Valley’s website:
This soy candle is known for its rich fragrance that captures the warmth of a real pumpkin pie. Ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg combine with vanilla in a pie crust aroma that evokes a freshly baked dessert, complete with homemade goodness.
Yep… pumpkin pie all the way and trust me when I say you can smell it all down to the finest detail. It’s like sticking your nose in a real fresh baked pumpkin pie. Love, love, LOVE that!!
Okay, I’m hooked. Now let’s see how this candle performs.
I decided to go big and light this candle in my master bedroom so I could fully enjoy this candle. Crossing fingers it would be a room filler. Once the wicks were lit, it took a good 20 minutes to reach a full melt pool and the aroma…. Mmm… a yummy pumpkin bakery all the way. The pumpkin puree dominates with lots of flakey pie crust with the perfect touch of pumpkin pie spices; not too much spice but just right. This was an excellent pumpkin pie that smelled very realistic!
Strength – I would rate this candle an 8 out of 10 in a really large room. 10 in medium to smaller rooms. Great scent throw!!
How did my candle burn?
This candle burned flawlessly. It burned clean and evenly from beginning to end. I did have to trim the wicks before each lighting but that’s normal.
Closing to my review:
Pumpkin Pie lovers… I highly recommend Madison Valley’s Pumpkin Pie all the way. It fit the bill in every category I look for when it comes to Pumpkin Pie. Presentation was great and it smelled dead on accurate. YUM!!!!
Happy candle hunting!
