Best Candle For Cinnamon: Our Own Candle Company Pumpkin Spice

When it comes to pumpkin spice enthusiasts, we noticed that some fans like the pumpkin scent, while others preferred the pumpkin spice aromas. Those usually include cinnamon scent notes (as well as nutmeg and cloves).

If that’s you, we’d suggest Our Own Candle Company’s Pumpkin Spice candle—it had the most cinnamon of the candles we tried!

What We Liked

• Aroma notes also included gingerbread and pumpkin!

• Made in the USA.

• Affordable.

• Includes wick holder (which is removed when you light it!). This protects the wick during shipment.

What Needs Work

• Too much cinnamon, too little pumpkin say some critics. We see that point, but we know some folks prefer that!
