Not Apple Pie

I should have read the reviews. I purchased this hoping for apple pie. A strong apple cinnamon wrapped in vanilla cream and honey with a hint of almond but this smells like your average apple candle scent which doesn't work for me since I make body butter

Smells Just Like A Hot Apple Pie

Excellent fragrance, this smells just like a hot apple pie and I grew up in NYS where we grow apples. Good job CS. This fragrance is very potent.

Doesn't Smell Like apple Pie

I had customers say the scent is light and doesn't really smell like apple pie.


Wanted to love it, but it just didn't smell much like apple pie. We brought this in last fall and it sold really slow compared to all the other fantastic CS fragrances. Love Candle Science - my absolute go-to for all things candle. But this one just isn't great.

Fragrance throw

My vendor sold the candle I made with this fragrance at 9% and they could not smell it once the candle was lit.

Heavy on the apple

Heavy on the Apple, but still smells really nice. I don’t really get the “pie” smell... more like apple and cinnamon


This scent does not smell like hot apple pie and per most of the reviews it does not. Time to change the name CS...

Crystella Candles

I like the smell a lot. But it’s definitely not hot apple pie in my opinion this is our first time using candle sciences apple pie the other brand I had been using smelled like a real apple pie in an oven but I can no longer get it not bashing this one at all because it smells good


I love this scent! It doesn't have a true baked pie smell. It's a fresh apple, not quite cider, not strong cinnamon smell. It's more like cinnamon cooked apples, but without that sugar smell. Strong in my wax melts. I will be buying more of this one for customers and myself and plan on keeping it stocked.

no pie smell or hardly any smell at all.

This fragrant has very little smell to it cold or hot, very disappointed and will have throw it away and take a loss on this one, I do not recommend this scent. Sorry C.S. but you really missed on this scent.

Great Apple Scent

I feel like the "pie" scent isn't really there, but it doesn't smell like straight up "Macintosh" apple or apple cinnamon. It's a really pleasant apple smell. It has a great hot and cold throw in GB464. I think it will be a great Fall seller!

Amazing apple pie

This is a very strong apple with cinnamon scent. There is a hint of pie crust but it's not overwhelming, just as a pie scent should be. I don't like cinnamon scents but this one is the perfect amount of pie to cinnamon. It's amazing!!

Upscale Smelling Apple Pie Fragrance

Wow! I am impressed but this complex apple pie fragrance. All the spice notes are there, and they are blended well. I think the fragrance is solid enough to stand on its own, but I might add a dash of a bakery scent to give the scent some additional carbs. But I'm almost hesitant to tamper with it. It's just that pleasant of a scent, and I'm not typically a fan of apple or pie fragrances.

Love it!

It smells much more like Apple cider than Apple pie, but still smells fantastic! I only got a small bottle to try but will definitely order more. Great fall scent!

Very nice apple scent but I don't think it smells like apple pie.

I think this is a nice apple scent but I don't think it smells at all like Hot Apple Pie. I made this as a wax melt in soy wax 1lb-1oz and it has a nice hot throw. I thought that when I was making it I got a crust scent but I don't smell that at all when it is burning. I was making multiple scents ( Pumpkin Chai and Toasted Pumpkin Spice both from Candle Science ) at the time so maybe what I thought was a Hot Apple Pie crust scent was actually all the scents mixing together.

Retro Girl Candles

I have tried apple pie from other oil companies and this is far the best I have smelled. Great cold and hot throw. Used 12% per lb wax in soy 444. Amazing smell. So many compliments. Need to order a bigger bottle.

It doesnt smell like apple pie or anywhere near it, but smells nice

Not that strong and doesn't smell like a true apple pie.

As much as I love Candle Science oils as I believe they make beautiful quality oils, this scent on a 2 week cure didn't have much of a throw using 464 wax. Smelling from the bottle I don't get a rich spicy typical out of the oven "Hot Apple PIe" aroma that grandma made. It reminds me of their other scent called Apple Harvest. To me it lacks the aroma of the pie crust that you want to smell and the apples wrapped in cinnamon, clove and sugar. I will give it another shot and make up a few more testers and see if I can doctor up this fragrance. I don't think I will order this again unless I can do a blend with it. Hated to give a sort of negative review since I love CS reviews.

Smells Great!

I started making candles for my home about two months ago and I've had a lot of fun experimenting with different fragrances. I think this one might be my very favorite scent so far, better than BrambleBerry's Hot Apple Pie fragrance in my opinion. I love autumn fragrances so I'm going to buy a lot more of this.


Like it a lot (being a man and all). Great throws cold & hot using in soy 444 & 464. May not smell exactly like hot apple pie, but,..If I were to describe the would be a full rich fruity smell and carrys very well throughout the house. Strong but not headache inducing.

Not Apple Pie

Was excited to see the Apple Pie finally being offered here, only to receive the sample and find nothing apple pie about it

Pittsburgh Soy Candle
Nice Fragrance

When testing this fragrance, men did really like it, but I got the same reaction from everyone who smelled it. That reaction was, "this smells great, but nothing like a apple pie". I'm not sure how to describe it. It is nice, but I'm not getting the "hot apple pie or fresh baked apple pie smell". I would probably pass on this fragrance just because I carry other apple scents in my line and this wasn't different enough for me although pleasant.

This Product was a hit, Men loved the fragrance...Great Job

Love this

Its perfect for fall and holiday time. Classic fragrance done very well.

Estelle Creates
Love it!

I have been purchasing and making this scent in my soy candles for years.
I’m so glad Candle Science picked it up! Such a warm and inviting fragrance. Perfect for 4th of July as well as a Fall and Winter scent. A great Tart warmer scent as well.
