Fragrance Empties | October 2018

October 2018 Home Fragrance Empties

Happy Halloween! The end of the month really snuck up on me (yet again) in October which means it’s time to share my home fragrance empties! We still have yet to unpack the majority of our house due to work craziness which hasn’t exactly encouraged me to burn or melt much of my collection. Here is what we did enjoy this October! 🙂

(Also, I apologize for the awful quality of this month’s photos – I’m still trying to determine where the best place is to take pictures in our new space!)

The ultimate fall candle in my opinion with notes of pumpkin and a buttery crust. I finished these off in the candle melter to really enjoy them.

I don’t really enjoy this scent as much as I once did. Maybe it was the low-quality tester candles? Even once I moved them to the candle melter it didn’t improve much.

October 2018 Wax Empties

Salted Caramel Grahams

Better Homes & Gardens, wax melt

When this released in 2017 I was obsessed with this scent, especially because it’s a dupe of BBW Pumpkin Spiced Cheesecake. Yet, I just wasn’t impressed by it in our new home. (I have so many back-ups if anyone is missing this!)

OMG this 2017 release still amazes me. On cold it smells like a cologne scent yet when warmed it’s a delicious bakery pumpkin. SO HAPPY I have backups of this, lol.

October 2018 Fragrance Empties

I’m really confused why BBW hasn’t brought this back in a couple years because this is INCREDIBLE in all forms. Honestly, this is the best wallflower that I’ve used in a long time.

This form of PSC was never all that great. It smells a bit off and I’m happy it wasn’t a great performer.

This is straight-up a repackage of Pumpkin Caramel Latte from back in the day. The quality of this fragrance in wallflower form has really decreased since I first tried it in 2011 – it barely detectable in my bedroom all month.

Crisp Morning Air

Bath & Body Works, hand-soap

Yes
One of my favorite apple scents that has a hint of an outdoorsy note which is very recognizable in New England.

Golden Autumn Day

Repurchase?
No
I love this fragrance in other forms, but it really didn’t work as a hand sanitizer. Every time I used it, I was so grossed out by the scent for the rest of the day and ended up just DNF’ing it.


This month I burned 4 Candles & 2 Wax Melts!


As far as October goes, this has been the least exciting fragrance-wise in years. I won’t let that discourage me next month though and hope to revive my melting game before the year is over! What was your favorite fragrance of the month? Share in the comments below!
