Pumpkin Wreath

I burned out of season a few days ago by melting a tart of Pumpkin Wreath. It was part of my “burn soon” pile and I know my husband loves autumn scents. I want to like this one…but unfortunately I just don’t love it.

At first, I was confused. Why don’t I like this scent? It has all the notes I love in fall candles: pumpkin, cinnamon, earthy-notes. Then it hit me… I was comparing Pumpkin Wreath to Red Apple Wreath….and in my humble opinion, Red Apple Wreath blows this one out of the water!

pumpkin wreathThe Scent: It’s an autumnal craft store scent of pumpkins, spices (like cinnamon and clove), and a woodsy note (maybe oak branches). It’s not bad, but not great. Yankee has better pumpkin scents, in my opinion, and even a better wreath scent. For me, I much prefer Red Apple Wreath. C

The Throw: This one is on the lighter side, but is not a total dud. It’s a light to maybe light-medium. It got a little “lost” in my living room and probably would have been better in a smaller room. C-

So, for as much as I love Fall scents, Pumpkin Wreath just doesn’t do it for me! I know others who LOVE this scent….so give it a sniff for yourself! I actually was a big fan of this scent when it first came out in Fall 2013 (my old review), so it’s funny how our noses change!

  1. ITA that our noses change, as it has happened to me too, with several YC scents in past years, among them Lemon Lavender and Island Spa. I had to take my unburned stashed jars and turn them all in for other scents, that’s how bad it was for me. And I too am on a wax ban which may last for well over a year, until I have burned or melted enough of what I have to justify another purchase. How do we GET this way, with too much WAX ?? I am burning two Yankee jars, at opposite ends of the house and cannot smell either one. It isn’t my nose either, as I can smell the cherry vanilla in the yogurt I am eating right now.

    • I’m glad I’m not the only one. I re-read my old review and thought “how did I ever like this scent?” That’s too bad you can’t smell you jars! I wish there was better consistency (that’s one reason why I blog; I know I read reviews before I buy candles sometimes just to avoid a “known problem” scent. For me, my wax ban will last until I can “melt” most of my collection! When I moved a few months ago, it was way too much work transporting my candles! Never again! 🙂
