719 Walnut Avenue candles do not get enough credit because they are found at Walmart. That's fine. It gives me something unique to blog about and I know there be will plenty of these candles left for me. I admit I was leery about them for a long time, until I saw one YouTuber do several reviews and she had consistent good things to say about the brand. Last fall I finally tried one (Pumpkin Waffles scent) and was so impressed that we went through two of those, and I bought an extra one to hold on to for this year. Well, several days ago I noticed they have the new fall scents out, and while I dashed into the store today for something totally unrelated I decided to go ahead and get the set.
Caramel Apples - 'A perfect combination of crisp apples enrobed in rich caramel.'
Mmmm, this is a yummy caramel apple scent. It's slightly stronger on the caramel, but the apple note is still there. The caramel is rich, with a hint of saltiness. The apples are sweet and juicy.
Cinnamon Apple Cider - 'An inviting fusion of warm, crisp apple and sweet cinnamon.'
Cider scents are not big on my list of fall favorites but I always seem to still have some each fall. This is a nice one, very warm and deep. It's a really nice spiced apple scent but that spice is not sharp or harsh. It brings the warmth to the scent. And that tell-tale cider note is there, softly simmering the apple notes. Very nice and cozy.
Caramel Cinnamon Roll - 'Treat yourself to this sweet blend of spicy cinnamon, rich caramel, and creamy vanilla.'
This could be a year round bakery scent but it does work for fall because of the cinnamon and caramel working together. You kinda just think of all the fall goodies like caramel apples and spiced things. The caramel is probably the strongest note. Once again, that cinnamon is not harsh, but instead is lending a warmth to the scent. The vanilla adds a creaminess which makes the caramel that much sweeter. This is a yummy, warm weather bakery scent.
Classic Flannel - 'A clean citrus and juniper blend, enriched with patchouli, sandalwood, and amber.'
This is not the type of scent I would normally buy. I mean, look . . . patchouli, sandalwood, and amber are three scents I don't care for and here they all are together in one blend. I got it though, sort of for blogging purposes, but also because hubby might like something like this as a break from all the apple and pumpkin and cranberry scents I'll be overloading him with during the fall season. I don't hate this scent, but nothing about is fall-like to me either. It doesn't even really strike me as a linen or laundry type scent, like I would think flannel would be. What I get from this is something sort of outdoorsy, almost manly.
These 719 Walnut Avenue candles 14 oz, 3-wicks, and cost $4.93 at Walmart. I will be keeping my eye on these to see if there is any kind of pumpkin scent this year. If not, bummer, but I still have one saved from last year.
