When I made my purchase at The Lampstand, I picked up a couple of wax melts from Kringle Candle Company. I was pleased with the first scent I tried (Cortland Apple: Read the review here), so I was anxious to get to get down to business with Autumn Winds. I also wanted to compare Autumn Winds from Kringle Candle Company to Autumn Walk from ScentSationals.
As mentioned in my previous post on Kringle, these are interesting, round wax melts that can be broken easily into sections thanks to the wax melt cup design. The packaging shows an orange leaf as it falls down from above. The wax is an off-white color, so nothing unusual or extraordinary there.
Spicy woody undertones marry sweetly with the unmistakable and nostalgic aroma of crunchy fallen leaves.
The cold sniff on this one was similar to Autumn Walk, minus the tart apples. When melting, I found this one to be very warm and spicy. It had an ozone-y element that made it very different from what I had melted earlier. Crushed leaves? Oh yes. That was definitely there and very comforting. This was outdoorsy, warm, very cozy and fresh at the same time. I found this a fairly complex scent and would love to try it in candle form.
The scent throw was moderately strong at best – I could smell it in a bathroom but definitely not beyond. I used a 24W electric melter for this melt. I would have preferred this scent to be stronger and will probably try it again with a tealight melter to see if that makes a difference. Great scent, though!
Do you think you would prefer Autumn Walk or Autumn Winds?
Happy candle burning ~
