"Initially, I was not impressed by Nutmeg and Spice's cold throw and packaging. Everything from its name to its artwork was bland, but I decided to give it a try when I found it at the store today.
I have it lit now and it's a sweet vanilla cinnamon without getting to sickly sweet or overwhelming. It's a relaxing, warm, and somewhat light vanilla cinnamon. The spice is subtle and appealing. Everything about the scent works. Recommended, especially for use during winter!
If it's brought back next year, might I suggest repackaging it to look more appealing and fun?"
"I was wary of this candle when I read the label because it said "spice". I immediately thought, Oh No, not another cinnamon candle! I can happily say that although the candle definitely has spices in it, they are on the milder side and completely tolerable for those sensitive to that sort of thing. This one is mostly caramel but the nutmeg keeps it from being too syrupy. The sweet nuttiness almost makes it smell like honey bunches of oats cereal. I really love this candle and I'm sad that I waited too long to get the 3 wick version. The smaller candle still has an excellent throw though, you can even smell it unlit in your room."

Absolutely delicious aroma
"I am so impressed by this scent from Bath and Body Works. It is simply one of the best scents they've ever created in candle form. This scent has been around for a while, except it has had a myriad of different names.
It is so deliciously warm vanilla, spiced with the foody nuttiness of baked goods and smooth caramel. I can absolutely smell the nutmeg. I think of a steaming cup of warm vanilla chai creamed tea, with a sprinkle of nutmeg on top. This candle speaks for itself.
My husband says it makes him hungry for dessert when I burn it after dinner. I only have the small size; will be getting the larger size when they go on sale!"
