I really couldn’t wait to start burning my Fall candles from Bath & Body Works. Actually, for a number of reasons. One because I had heard such good things about this year’s lineup. And two…well, I did go a bit overboard with the candle purchases. I needed to start burning some candles and FAST! What better candle to start with than Pumpkin Cupcake? I love pumpkin…I love cupcakes…sounded like a winner to me!
Here’s the scent description from the Bath & Body Works website:
Satisfy your sweet tooth with the scent of a freshly baked pumpkin cupcake covered in loads of rich buttercream frosting.
It sure sounded like we were off to a good start! I have the three wick candle because I like the performance and scent throw of this size better from B&BW. The wax was a rich orange color that just screamed pumpkin. The scent on cold sniff was mainly a slightly spicy pumpkin scent – nothing really to ooh and ahh over.
After I started burning this candle, that’s when the real beauty of the scent emerged. It was a heavy pumpkin scent with just the right amount of spices mixed in. I smelled mostly cinnamon and nutmeg – the usual suspects. But they were not too overpowering to drown out the cakey pumpkin scent that predominated. The buttercream frosting? That was a back note, for sure. I could smell it every now and then wafting in and out. Just enough the sweeten the scent but not so much to make this a toothache bakery sweet scent.
I really loved this one. It filled a medium sized room easily – not too overpowering but just right. If I were to use it in my large, open living area, I would probably need to burn two at a time. This scent is a definite winner. I would reorder it in a heartbeat. In fact, I’m considering it now…
What is your favorite Fall candle from the Bath & Body Works line?
Happy candle burning ~
