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)! 👇

      I’m so excited to try your new pumpkin scents! I think the Pumpkin Latte might be wonderful! I loved your Roasted Coffee candle but pumpkin latte might even be better! Also, anything with pumpkin and spices, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, love that aroma! I know you have Pumpkin Spice now but a little more cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg would be amazing! Love your candles! God bless you!

      Pumpkin Spice is my favorite, so looking forward to new pumpkin aromas. I bought a candle that was Honey Pumpkin and it was amazing and surprisingly a good strong smell. Perhaps next time keep that in mind.

      I am excited about pumpkin apple and possibly the pumpkin spice latte. If there is a possible way to just get an apple smell, I believe that would be good too. Can’t wait!

      The scent of fall in the oak woods is such a nostalgic smell. Guess that would be a woodsy scent, possibly. Just makes you think of cozy campfires & warm plaid blankets, right? Campfire scent would be nice as well! Anyone want a ‘s’more? Nothing sugary sweet, though, just earthy. 🍂🍁
