Review: Yankee Candle's Spiced Pumpkin 2-Wick Tumbler

I bought this candle last year during Yankee Candle's buy 2 get 2 free sale (which is also going on right now until September 30th, so get in on it now if you want some large jars). As you can see from the above photo, it is a little more than halfway burned. Even when it's not fall, I find myself wanting the comforting, spicy fragrance this candle brings to our home within 20-30 minutes. The pumpkin-y, cinnamon-y, slightly sugary scent wafts through our house, not just in the living room. It also has a slightly earthy element to it, not in a "dirt"y way, but in a soiled, freshly picked pumpkin way.

We absolutely love this scent. Its coziness and its distinctly fall flavors make this an all-around awesome candle to have on hand at all times. The throw is strong, but not overpoweringly so. It burns evenly, and I've had no performance issues whatsoever.

Do you have a favorite fall pumpkin scent? I'd go as far as putting this in my top 10 favorites for ALL of fall, actually! :)

Yankee Candle Spiced Pumpkin
Cold Rating: 6.5/10, you can smell all of the flavors, but it's not overpowering.
Lit Rating: 8/10, super fall-esque, strong throw, even performance.
Throw Rating: 8.5/10
Overall Rating: 8/10; memories of sitting around the table carving pumpkins, sweatered and cozy, simmering spices in the background, falling leaves. FALL ROCKS!
