Don't you love the holidays? I do! And my favorite just so happens to be Halloween. Although this year, October 31st seems to be on the back burner for many of us — myself included. Why? Well, for one: 2020 has scared us. The last thing anyone wants to do is spend more time being frightened. Which for a Halloween-lover like myself is a bit unfortunate. The holidays are supposed to lift our spirits, and this year more than ever we need it. So, what's the answer here? Cancel Halloween? Not a chance! This season, prepare to meet your match. Treat yourself to this small jar that will bring big joy from Target. 

The Pumpkin Bourbon Candle by Chesapeake Bay is not just good, it's really good.  After experiencing this candle first-hand, I fell head-over-heels in love with this "perfect fall scent." The sweet and savory aroma of pumpkin bourbon and spices not only uplifted my mood, when I opened my door, a neighbor of mine (down the hall) asked if I was making "pumpkin pancakes." This sweet-smelling scent is highly comparable. 

Target reviews agree. 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."

And why is that? Let's start with its size.

This candle comes available in a large 19oz jar. It's ideal for anyone looking for a long-lasting scent that is worth every single penny. And speaking of pennies, at just $9.99, this candle is pretty much impossible to resist. And, most reviewers didn't! So many of them, "went back for another!" And, who can blame them? I can't. 

Whether you're living in a small space or looking for ways to transform one specific room, this candle gets the job done. The clear glass is sleek and easy to blend with your fall decor. Factor in the gorgeous gold lid and it's a simple way to elevate any section in seconds. So what are you waiting for? Ringing in at just under-$10, this is the Halloween necessity we don't want but need this holiday season.
