This candle has the perfect apple spice scent. It smells like apple pie to me, but it doesn't overstep its boundaries into a weird, food scented candle. This is an excellent scent for fall and winter, but it's subtle enough that I feel it can be burned in the summer or spring as well. That's the best thing about these Beowulf candles - they aren't unbearably potent like those horrible candles you get from Yankee or Walmart. Also, they are not made from paraffin wax which is an added bonus. 10 out of 10!
