Don't you just love the holidays? I do, and my favorite just so happens to be Halloween. Before October ever even strikes, I'm shuffling through the stores on the prowl for only the best candles, but ironically so, I repeatedly come back to this one Target candle every single Halloween season. 

Chesapeake Bay's Pumpkin Bourbon Candle is not just good. It is really good, as in a league of its own, the best. For me, I consider it the "perfect fall scent" (and as someone who writes about the best home fragrances daily, that's major!). The sweet and savory aroma is the perfect blend of pumpkin, bourbon, and spices and lights up my Halloween celebrations all season long.

To the point, a neighbor of mine couldn't get over how sensation it smelt; she repeatedly asks me every time she walks by my apartment: "If I was making pumpkin pancakes." 

No, but this sweet-smelling scent definitely puts you in the mood, too. And, seemingly, it's on so many other happy shoppers' radars too.

One shopper says, "it's her favorite fall candle," and another says, "[she's] had several candles from other high-end stores, but this one beats them all." Not so surprising, and you want to know why? It checks all of my boxes (and os many others). 

This Target candle is available in two sizes — a larger 19-oz jar and a medium-sized 11-oz choice — both versions are beyond affordable and rings in at under $10. And, trust me: it's worth every penny. Just ask the reviewer who said, "I went back for another." (Me too!) 

The clear translucent glass seamlessly blends in with your current fall décor. Plus, the orange base of the candle adds just the right amount of "festive" and compliments the gorgeous gold lid. 

All in all, I can write you a novel on why this Target candle is (and will be) your perfect match, but don't believe me: see for yourself. Add this spooky season scent to your shopping carts, and remember to thank me later!
