Sometimes Apple scents can be too heavy on the spice/cinnamon, but let me tell you, this candle, which by the way doesn't fit under a standard candle lamp (had to buy an adjustable one for the Kringle large jars), is AMAZING. Sweet, donuty, apple goodness. It is not heavy on spice at all, just enough fall apple gooeyness and sugary donut notes to make your mouth water. I had it melting for a couple of hours just to test out my new lamp (I'm saving this for fall) and it filled my kitchen and living room, so throw is a strong 8/10. So delicious!
