Fall Fun Series II: All About Apples

I’ll come right out and say it… for the most part, I do not like apples. I know, I’m weird. Most fruits are hit or miss for me, as far as snacking on ’em goes. However, I have found that I can tolerate the artificial scent of apples, preferably mixed with other yummy smells. For instance, the Warm Apple Pie wax melts & candles by Mainstays took me by surprise a few autumns ago. No recipes or decor for this girl, but, I do have a few new-to-me apple scents that I am excited to use this fall, much to the surprise of those that have ever lived with my love/hate/mostly hate relationship with apples.

I lucked out and bought several sugar scrubs from Bath & Body Works when they were on sale for only $6. Champagne Apple & Honey is a returning fall fragrance with notes of pink lady apple, sparkling champagne, and jasmine honey.

Caramel Applewood from Goose Creek is pretty much what I expected: green apple, caramel, and wood. I skipped this scent the past two fall seasons, but I made sure I grabbed it this time.

The Supernatural Victorian sampler from Vintage Chic Scents included two yummy apple melts. Witch’s Chair is Vermont honey apple and Vanilla Lace (Victoria’s Secret type), and Sanderson Sisters has notes of green apple, caramel, candy corn, and marshmallow.

Apple & Oats was one of many free samples I received from Candles From The Keeping Room last month. Its scent description includes crisp apple slices, steel cut oats, Tupelo honey, tart apple peel, vanilla extract, and maple sugar. Yummm. I feel spoiled already.

 

Even though the weather has started to change where I live, this past week+ has felt very un-autumn-like to me. I’ve temporarily slowed down on my pumpkin frenzy. My mother and I celebrated our birthdays along with two others in our family. For these occasions, I’ve gravitated more towards simple vanilla cake type scents, and I’ve enjoyed gazing at fresh flowers more than my pumpkins. I did, however, purchase my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season, and started the first late night fire. I’m curious to see if anyone is in full fall mode yet. I am certainly in full fall semester mode.

  1. Apple scents are hit or miss for me too but by trying a ton of different ones over the years I found several that I like.
    I haven’t tried any that you mentioned but they all sound amazing!

  2. You had me at Tupelo Honey. I’m digging honey scents and I struggled really hard to not order the VCS Supernatural sampler. If you ever choose to review Witch’s Chair here or anywhere, please let me know. I’m avoiding B&BW because I’m trying to lessen the candle load, but if the Honey Pear one is available later, I know I’ll cave.
    I’m the opposite on apples, love the fruit, not the fragrance. As you said, it can be artificial, but the bursting with juice green apples are more pleasing. Do you have a favorite fruit scent?

  3. To the first PSL of the year! I’ve had a couple as really nice treats this year with friends, and I’ve enjoyed them so much more for not just throwing them down my throat every minute of the day.

    I’m not much for apples myself, although I dislike them as a scent. Eating them (preferably in a pie, but just a straight-up apple is okay, too) is fine. I can get on board that BBW scent, though – I’ve been super impressed with their bath and body stuff this fall, it’s been super nice.

  4. I never really got into apple fragrances until last year. Prior to that it was all about pumpkins for me! I find that as long as the apple note is mixed with something else, like cinnamon or caramel, it’s much more enjoyable. Exactly why I think the Warm Apple Pie melt from Scentsationals is great; it’s definitely heavier on the pie crust note!
