When it comes to candles that smell edible, I’m a sucker. So it should come as no surprise that I bought the Slatkin & Co. Apple Crumble Candle from Bath & Body Works.
Since we’re approaching fall, I’m craving apple, pumpkin, and spicy scents.
The Apple Crumble scented Slatkin & Co. candle fits the bill nicely when it comes to an apple scent that isn’t too strong or tart.
I’ve only ever had an apple crumble a few times, so I can’t say how dead-on the fragrance is. What I will say is that it is all kinds of delicious!

Slatkin & Co. Apple Crumble Candle Review
To me, this smells like an apple dessert. You can smell the tart apples, but it’s not overpowering or headache-inducing like a full-on apple scent is sometimes. I think it’s because there’s a slight sweet note that blends with the tartness that softens it. And the scent is punctuated with cinnamon and nutmeg, which is oh-so-delicious!
Considering that I was testing out one of the mini (trial-sized) candles, I obviously didn’t expect it to perform like its momma, the large 14.5-oz., 3-wick version. But I was pleasantly surprised that even though it was small, it provided a decent scent throw. It lightly fragranced a very small room.
To get the heart of the scent, though, I found that I had to take a whiff of it directly above the candle, but that’s because this is the itty bitty version.
Another great surprise. The flame burned strong for hours. Now, I realize that this tiny candle isn’t meant to be burned for many hours (like the large candle), but I guess I just forgot and let it burn, baby!
I burned it for over 3 hours straight, and the flame was just as strong from the beginning until I blew it out. I also noticed that the wax burned cleanly and evenly, which means that there won’t be wasted wax from tunneling. Yay! 🙂
I like the small packaging just because it looks cute. Also, it’s great for if you just want to test a scent without committing to a larger version.
The label on the front features a yummy apple-crumble dessert that looks like someone baked it in a muffin cup. It’s a sweet design.
This is a new fall scent that came out recently. It’s probably only going to be available for a limited time, so if you like it, you should grab it in the larger size while you still can. I have no idea if they’ll bring it back next year.
Final Verdict: 8/10
I like this scent because it has that delicious apple fragrance expertly woven with a touch of sweetness and spice that reminds me of freshly baked desserts and of fall. When the 3-wick candles go on sale, I’ll probably pick one up in this scent. 🙂
What are your favourite apple desserts to eat? Do you also go gaga over apple-and-spice fragrances? Do you like the smell of green apples or red apples better?
