This candle is wonderful. The pumpkin fragrance is strong, yet subtle at the same time. It's not at all overpowering, even after I burn it for hours!
I received this candle in this month’s Vellabox subscription. I’m very happy with this candle: this is the perfect Fall candle. The cinnamon, ginger, pumpkin, and brown sugar come through, and makes for a nice warm ambiance. I’m instantly reminded of Thanksgiving and spending the holiday with my family. I am waiting for large version of this candle to come back in stock as I need it in my collection.
Throughout recent history there has been heated debate about what makes pumpkin spice pumpkin spice or better yet, what exactly defines pumpkin spice? If you've pondered PS's origins, do yourself a favor and buy this candle and let it be your guide. Aster's Pumpkin Spice combines everything you imagine and what from this autumnal go-to and more. It will become the locus of your memory for "all things fall" and pumpkin spice scents at large; a schematic olfactory map for your brain to compare any other brand trying their hand at this one. Dare I say, this is pumpkin spice at its peak.
I have to say - I am not a fan of pumpkin flavored things, or even pumpkin spice. I've only ever ordered a pumpkin spice drink once, and wasn't impressed. I try my best to eat no more than one slice of pumpkin pie a year.
So when I got this candle through VellaBox, I was not expecting much. I was surprised at how fragrant it was as soon as I opened it, and it smelled wonderful. You can really get the cinnamon and nutmeg scents. This is the first candle through VellaBox that I actually looked up who the maker was and once I've burnt through this one I may well buy a large version. Very pleased!
