Wallflower: Harvest Gathering

harvest gatheringI’ve been having bad luck with Wallflowers. The two currently plugged in are basically not giving off any scent. My husband and I hosted Thanksgiving this year, and I wanted a Wallflower to create a festive mood, all the while to ensure my house smelled great. Enter Harvest Gathering. I have been saving this Bath & Body Works Wallflower just for the occasion.

The Scent: I love this festive blend. Spicy clove is the most dominant note, followed by a soft apple note and a hint of red berry sweetness. The clove and spice create a warm environment while the autumn fruit notes give it a seasonal and festive feel. Overall, it set my Thanksgiving ambiance. B+

The (bulb) Throw: It’s been a week, and the bulb throw has been great! My cat’s litter box area, kitchen, and dinning room all smell like a blend of spicy clove and baked apples. It’s perfect in that Harvest Gathering scents these rooms without being over-bearing. In other words, when Thanksgiving dinner was cooking, you smelled Thanksgiving dinner. But before and after, you got the wonderful scent of clove and apple. This one is making me happy! A-

Overall, I am a big fan of Harvest Gathering. Happy (post) Thanksgiving everyone!

  1. I recently started buying Bath and Body Works candles. I’m really impressed with their throw! I’ve been thinking about trying the wall flowers, but I’ve read a lot of comments online about them leaking and damaging people’s homes. Have you had any issues with them leaking? We just remodeled our bathroom and I would love to try one in there, but my husband would kill me if it leaked and caused damage!

    • I’ve never had a problem with leakage (whew and yay!). The older Wallflowers (maybe ~8 years ago) were notorious for leaking and even over-heating. I’ve been using 3 different plug-in units on a rotation for a few years now and haven’t had any issues; same with Jenna. The units do get discolored at the top after a few uses, and my oldest is starting to look a bit dark. I’ll probably toss the oldest unit just to be safe. All of my units are at least 2-3 years old, so I’m not sure if the newer units may have the leakage problem again. (I hope not!). I’ve been using these since ~2013 with good results… but I’d definitely keep a cautious eye!
