Smells Okay

Has a very strong apple smell which is great but, it also has that red medicine smell and I can’t smell the maple at all.

Lavelle Cash-Murray

I didn't like

This has a weird smell to it, I didn't smell the apple much the cold throw is weak...I didn't like the hot smells more like syrup to me.



I love this scent!
it definitely has a strong apple scent with touches of sweet maple but is not overpowering. Definitely a fall favorite


Awesome Scent!

This is such an awesome Fall scent! Our customers love it and I cannot keep candles made with this scent on my shelves! Both cold and hot throw are wonderful! It's amazing!


Black bat candles

Though the apple is overpowered, it’s very delightful, and mixes well with soy

Joshua Shrum


I was worried I wouldn't like this scent, but it smells so so so good! The throw is amazing



To be honest I didn't have to high of hopes when I ordered this. But I absolutely love the smell, it's one of our best sellers. It has a great cold throw and even better hot throw.



I'm not a huge apple fan but we tried this out as a sample fragrance and WOW! It's rich and warm, not your typical generic apple. Excited to test out the hot throw in a couple days! Thanks candle science.

#1 with Customers!

I love this fragrance, I've been using it for a couple of years and consistently my customers tell me that it smells good enough to bathe in!

I even had a customer who disliked apple fragrances try this one and it's now his favorite! ❤🍎



This scent definitely is nice and strong, both cold and in hot throw. It’s the strongest scent I’ve tried so far. Having said that, I am not a fan of the scent, but my son loved it, so he took it for his room & used it every day. I’d say it’s a little woodsy but more nutty, I couldn’t really place what it was that I didn’t like but it wasn’t for me. I’d say that people who enjoy nutty-woodsy fall/heavy Christmas scents would enjoy this one. It’s very holiday-scentish. Not bad, just not for me.


Great fall scent

Perfect for fall. Lovely rich Maple with a hint of apple. Love it!!!

Kristyna Grimes


I am new to making candles so when I first bought this product I was skeptical because I wasn't sure if the scent would be realistic or not. I am so glad I bought this because it is absolutely fantastic. It wasn't overpowering, makes your whole house a cozy, and it smells exactly like the name. I would recommend this to anyone who loves "Apples and Maple Bourbon". 10/10 for me!

Zoe Krupp

My all-time favorite CS fo!

I love the apple-maple/vanilla scent! Please don't ever change it!!!!

I was not pleased with the cold and hot throw of this fragrance....The smell was more like a buttery scent. It is one I would not purchased again.

Nancy's Soy Candle Creations

Another hit in my Fall Collection

What can I say....................yummy!!!!!!

Ladybug Candles Soaps & Things

Great and long lasting scent!

This fragrance was a big seller for us! It is strong and long lasting.

Kudlicki Kandles

Best seller- Amazing scent

This is my top seller in my candle line. It sells all year too. I love it and it is a go-to scent for many of my repeat customers and new ones too. Great job Candle Science!

Yes to apples... no to bourbon

I am giving this a 4 star because it's a definite best seller. There is a very strong fresh apple scent, however it is lacking in the bourbon and maple department. I use in GW 444 wax. I originally branded my candles as "Apple Bourbon" and it sat on the shelf. I then changed it to "Fresh Picked Apples" and my sales skyrocketed for it. If you're looking for a fresh apple scent, this is it. If you're looking for that bourbon punch... not so much.


Scent isn't as strong as I would prefer, using your formula 1oz/1lb in Soy 464, but nice.
I do have ONE complaint CS...Your shipping prices. I have found a competitor that ships for way less. Their products are a few cents cheaper too. But your products being a few cents higher isn't a deal breaker for me, it's the shipping cost you guys charge.


Apples and Maple Bourbon

This isn't one of my favorites (it's not *bad*... but just not a favorite. I can't really tell the bourbon in it. Definite apple scent.), but after my xmas show (the first show I've had this scent) I've had two people already contact me to get large personal orders of this one. One was for more candles (10!) and one was for more melts (6 clamshell). I will give five stars for any scent that quickly brings back orders like that! Thanks CS!



I've had a sample of this hanging around awhile and decided to make some melts. I had no idea this little gem would so quickly become a staple in my fragrance library! It is stunning; the throws are stellar. If you're looking for a warm and rich Autumn apple fragrance this is by far a stand out compared to basic apple cinnamon. Divinity!


No notes of maple or bourbon

This smells like a vanilla apple more so than maple or bourbon. I was disappointed that there wasn't that bourbon scent.


A Good Apple Alternative

This is not your typical Fall Scent however, I have found that customers looking for a fall candle but do not like your typical "Apple Cinnamon" sort of scent really like this one. I personally think it is a lighter scent then I like but every customer is different and their preferences. Due to customers asking me to always have this, this is for sure a scent I keep in my fall line up.


Based on the reviews, I thought this would be better. The maple bourbon seemed lost. I think I'll try it again in a different wax. Tested in GB 464.

The Burning Mitten

Love the complexity!

I used this scent @ 10% in GB 444 (heated to 190° then allowed to cool to a 169° add temp, stirred constantly until wax cooled to 120° then poured) for wax melts. It was a bit "boozy" out of the bottle but once in the wax and cured for a couple of weeks the hot throw really balanced out. The cured, cold throw is still a little boozy. The hot throw is rich & complex. I get apple & bourbon evenly in the hot throw with light undertones of maple. I've already re-ordered the 1 lb. bottle.


Excellent throw

This has an excellent throw! I use ecosoya cb 135 wax 1oz/lb. Definitely ordering more


Unexpected appeal

I didn't know what to think of this scent right out the bottle, a lil to whiskey scented for me, but once in a candle the apple really comes through. Used 1.5 oz of C3 soy wax to 1 lb of wax. Really nice scent once the candle cures.


Smells pleasantly of an old lady's house at Christmas time.

Magic Carrot Candles

Great scent (could use more bourbon)

I, and everyone I've gifted these candles to, adore the scent. However, it's definitely apple and maple, with no discernable bourbon scent. It would be great to have a strong, deep bourbon option, but this is still a very likeable scent that performs well in soy (10% in GB 464).


Love this.

The apple smell is delightful. There is a light touch of maple but it is difficult to smell the bourbon. Either way this scent is comforting and sweet!


Very pleasantly surprised

I am NOT a fan of apple-cinnamon scents. At all. I can't stand them. I understand that other people like those scents, but they just grate on my senses. I got a small bottle of this based on the reviews, & was really hesitant, thinking it was going to be another apple-cinnamon thing. It's totally not!!!! I am only leaving 4 stars because I really really really love the scent of a good, caramel-y bourbon, & I wish this had a little more of that element, but it's still great. It's very warm & inviting. The apples, maple, & bourbon scent blend well together, none of them sticking out more than the other. I think people are going to love this one - so much better than just your boring drugstore sweet candle smells.


Makes me happy

Received this as a Secret Santa gift from a friend who makes her own soy candles. I love it! It's apple-y, and I can smell the maple in the background, too. Not sure if I smell the bourbon, but it doesn't matter to me as it smells so wonderful that it makes me happy. It's a light sweet scent, not overpowering, but not weak in my opinion. I'm going to order some for myself so I can make my own candles!


The Perfect Fall Apple Scent!

This is a huge hit with my customers compared to the Apple Orchard fragrance. This one is definitely a keeper, although I removed 1 star because I'd prefer it to have a slightly stronger bourbon fragrance.

Aurora Borealis Candles

This is an awesome fragrance every time! If this one is not included in your fall scents you are missing the boat!!

Candle Cottage

Amazing fragrance

My customers love this scent! I introduced it last fall and it has been a huge hit!

Thomas Gallion - Hannah Candles Etc.

nice scent

I bought this FO and used on my very first attempt in making soy candles. It's a nice scent I made a small batch and used about 2 of the 1oz cap fulls in my batch. The throw while mixing and cold is nice and pretty strong but during the burn test the throw was weak....which is nice for those with allergies or low tolerance for smells/scents. Doesn't really smell like apples to me but more cinnamon and bourbon, but still is a nice fall scent.


great mixer

I mixed this oil with Macintosh apple and caramelized pralines. It made a WONDERFUL caramel apple. Strong scent throw both hot and cold. I used GB464 in a 4 in container and used 3- eco 4 wicks. perfect burn and pool.


Ahh just okay...

I was a little bit disappointed in this scent. I ordered this for my sis-n-law. She liked the scent a little more than I did. Not her favorite, but definitely not her most unfavorite either. In my opinion the apple scent overpowers the maple boubon scent. I really just smell a green appley scent. I probably will only order more if requested by a customer. There are a lot of other scents that I like better. It does have a great hot and cold throw if you love apples.



Strong aple and bourbon influence. Unique and sultry.


Love This Scent

I got this scent as a sample with my order! Really nice, CS, another job well done! Got orders right away for this one!



I loved this fragrance, but it was weaker than the others I ordered. I would use it again but would use more than 1 oz/lb.


Using this as a mix

This is a very awesome fragrance. Mixed with Strudel Spice, it is a very nice Apple Pie. Better than this and cinnamon stick(apple cinnamon).Granted apple cinnamon is a different set of cutomers.

Nu Smelz Candle Company

Deanna M

Unique Apple Scent

Tested in GB415, 6 oz tin, 8% FO load and a CD16 wick. After 48 hours this scent was kicking butt! Sure to be a huge hit with customers who love apple but get tired of the same old, same old apple scents.
