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!
The 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!
