All the 2019 Bath & Body Works Pumpkin Candles, Ranked
Yep, we sniffed all 10 of 'em!
It’s not officially pumpkin spice season until Bath & Body Works releases their pumpkin candle collection. Luckily, for those of us who can’t wait for fall (or the official start of pumpkin spice season), the collection is here. With 10 pumpkin candles and counting, there’s truly something for everyone. We took a whiff of every Bath and Body Works pumpkin candle on the market right now to bring you an unofficial ranking of all the scents. But before we begin, remember: scents are personal, so we've got no judgment here if you’re Pumpkin Peanut Brittle’s Number One Fan. Promise!
This scent comes in a few different varieties and we honestly love them all. The White Barn candle is heavy on the clove so it could also work throughout the winter if you want to stock up. The others don't even specifiy a pumpkin scent on the label ingredients, but honestly, does that really matter? Plus, they have an adorable, purrfect version for Halloween!
There's nothing better than a freshly baked pumpkin pie, and this newest addition from Bath & Body Works features hints of everything you know and love about the yummy classic dessert, including a fragrant nod to freshly baked graham cracker crust. Is it fall yet?!
Frankly, this scent doesn't smell like pumpkin at all, but it does smell like fall. You can almost feel the autumn leaves crunching under your feet at your first whiff. These candles smell like apple picking to us.
Yes, you can judge this candle by its label. The simple combination of white pumpkin, autumn spice blend and ground cinnamon creates the perfect spicy-pumpkin scent that even the too-cool-for-PSL people will love.
Honestly, we first judged this scent as something we'd have loved in our tween years, but to our surprise, it's totally pleasant. Truthfully it's hard to find the pumpkin in this candle, but the combination of homemade marshmallow and caramel drizzle is something we can get behind.
Close your eyes and sniff this three-wick candle and you'll picture that caramel apple kit from your childhood. This isn't our winner of the bunch, but anyone who's a true caramel fan will be pleased with this purchase.
Another new addition for 2019, this light and elegant candle is perfect for people who find overtly sweet-smells overwhelming. Though we could have used a bit more pumpkin and weren't too sure where the "latte" came in, we'd gladly enjoy this subtle scent on a brisk fall night.
Waffles? No. Pecan? Nope. Pumpkin? Zilch. Maybe there was a mix-up in the candle factory, but the vision of warm pumpkin pecan waffles wafting through the house on a Saturday morning doesn't come to mind when we sniff this.
