Review: Front Porch's Pumpkin & Apples

(Look, I figured out how to make my photos larger! Yay for me, a college graduate who apparently can't read the little button that says "small, medium, large, x-large!")
What could go wrong??
Well, nothing. In fact, this tart was bloody amazing. There's just a touch of pumpkin and spice, but apple is definitely the dominant note in this. It's a fresh apple, too, not an artificial or sweet one.
(Does fresh apple smell a bit like laundry or soap to anyone else???)
This is a definite repurchase. It was also super, super strong! Josh and I got a huge kick out of this one, but I doubt it will be on the remake list ever again since Front Porch always restocks the same 10 scents over and over and over. Just once I'd like to see something I request get onto the site (well, minus Honey Almond, but I think I asked after the scent had already been remade). This was so, so wonderful!

Front Porch's Pumpkin & Apples 
Cold Rating: 7/10; on cold sniff, I almost get 100% apple, but it's not a bad thing.
Lit Rating: 8/10; very lovely scent! Fresh, bright apple, but light pumpkin. This should basically be called "apple with a teeny-tiny hint of some sort of spice."
Throw Rating: 8/10; Super strong, I could smell this around the house!
Overall Rating: 8/10; rounded slightly up on this one because it's simply a great tart! Overpowering apple leads to a light pumpkin and spice undertone. Strong. Want and need to pick apples for real. Not looking forward to summer. Ick.


  1. I liked this one too! I had a 4-pack. Melted 3 of them and sent my last one to Deb.

    1. It was so, so nice! I wish I would have gotten it in a 4 pack when I had the chance because it'll probably never restock, lol. I hope Deb liked it, too! :)

  2. LOL! I always wondered why you chose for your pictures to be so small! :P

    This sounds intriguing. I guess I'll have to see if Front Porch ever decides to restock this scent so I can try it. I think she's more occupied with the renewed chunk tarts though.

    1. I feel like a complete failure! o.O

      I have been scowering the FP website, and it has not been on there. I asked her to put it on the site, but it's not like that makes a difference. I did see that she put a brown sugar & fig type on there yesterday, though, which is not a typical scent requested, I think. Those chunks are $5 a piece!!!
