And The New Pumpkin Candles Are...

Hi! It’s Brittany, again—owner & founder of Antique Candle Co.®. I've got such an exciting update on my quest to find THREE new pumpkin candles for fall... 

Remember my blog, asking what pumpkin fragrances we should create?? Thank you so much for your thoughts on all things Pumpkin candles. I had so much fun thinking about all the ideas you shared with me. At the time of writing this, I read through almost 500 opinions, comments, and exciting ideas! ❤️ Sweet Pumpkin? Spicy Pumpkin? Sweet & spice-y? Adding other flavors? The possibilities were endless. Some of the wackiest & most creative ideas I read were: Pumpkin Pecan Waffles, White Chocolate Pumpkin, and Pumpkin Bourbon (which all sound DELISH). 😍

There were hundreds of amazing suggestions, but a few really stood out to me as potentially AMAZING pumpkin candles. Currently, I've narrowed it down to 5 of my favorite... I'm letting my team take it from here to sniff + quality test these five fragrances. Based on their feedback, we will have three pumpkin winners (winner winner, pumpkin dinner?! 🤣). Ready to find out the five fragrances we are testing? 


    1. Pumpkin Apple
    2. Pumpkin Spice Latte
    3. Pumpkin Cake
    4. Sweet Pumpkin
    5. Pumpkin Patch

    I think I was surprised the most by the apple with pumpkin aroma – I wouldn’t think to put those together in ways that you thought of! We're going to get to work on the apple, coffee, and sweet notes to try and make the PERFECT collection of PUMPKIN candles. How fun is this??? I must admit, it’s possible along the way we might not be able to nail all of these down in time. So if you have any other ideas that come to mind for this fall season, please leave a comment! 

    Pumpkin Spice Candle


    I’m pretty excited about Fall & we have already started making some fall candles that will launch in the coming months. Why are we making them so early? Well, keep in mind we are a small business – there is a small group of us making each candle. Wicking each one, printing on the jar, pouring & cleaning the candle, placing a lid on it, putting it in inventory & then placing it on the shelf for later. ❤️

    However, we happen to be tracking ahead of schedule (BEST candle crew ever!!)…so I have released a few fall candles early.  We just haven’t made everything quite yet! Check out the fall candles we've made so far (more to come pinky promise)! 👇

      Fall is not just pumpkins, it’s an entire season and when I think of that time, I think of nature as well. I’d love something that incorporates that. Plum sounds divine so! One of my fav scents is something called “fall autumn woods.” Something that embodies that name would be a hit I’m sure!

      Warm apple pie with a lot of cinnamon would be amazing!!! I love a strong and warm scent for Fall!!

    • Sarah

      Love what you are working on!
      Another commenter said one of my fav Fall scents (Warm Apple Pie or Warm Apple Crisp🥰🥰) and then BLEW my mind with her suggestion of 🥁🥁🥁 PLUM!!! I would have never thought of that but now that I’ve read it, I can’t stop imagining it. I also agree that Pumpkin is delightful and a true scent of fall but it is nice to have other seasonal scents to break up the monotony.
      Can’t wait to see what you and the team come up with!

      Would love something more like warm apple pie or pumpkin cheesecake, or plum…campfire…
      Anyway super excited!

    • Marcia

      I love Deandrea’s idea of a Plum fall scent. So much pumpkin everywhere. So it would really be great to have something different to choose from.
