Colonial Candle are really strong candles that mostly lean into masculine territory. They are also huge and the glass is super heavy and it takes forever to get through a large jar.
That being said, they look absolutelly amazing and you get so much fragrance for your money.
5 Fall Colonial Candle Reviews
Colonial Candle Autumn Bliss is one of the new Fall scents from Colonial Candle. I absolutely love the wax color and the overall look of this candle, when I got a deep wax pool after about two hours of burning, the dark blue wax pool was gorgeous.
I really like Colonial Candle Autumn Bliss, unlike a lot of my Colonial Candles, this doesn’t have a masculine or cologne scent. It’s very autumnal, good for a cold day and I’m looking forward to burning it in the Fall.

The official notes in Colonial Candle Autumn Bliss scented candle are: Blackberries, Italian Bergamot, Mandarin, Cyclamen leaves, Vanilla, Acai Berries, Warm Amber, Sandalwood, Sheer Musk.
Burning Colonial Candle Autumn Bliss, I get a very fruity overall fragrance. There’s a strong blackberry note mixed with other berry scents. The sandalwood is very light, I can get the warmth of the amber and vanilla but it’s not a heavy scent, just basically berries, warmed up by amber and vanilla.
Colonial Candle Autumn Bliss would fit well in a kitchen or a living room, maybe even an office. The scent throw was about a 6, it’s the lightest throwing candle of the Fall 2015 Colonial Candles.
I wouldn’t stock up on this, it’s not all that special and I don’t tend to go nuts over berry heavy fragrances. But if you do like berry scents and have smaller rooms you could burn this in, it’s a very nice warm fragrance.
I have an 8 oz. oval jar of Colonial Candle Autumn Bliss. The oval jar has two cotton wicks and burns for up to 50 hours.
I hope you enjoyed my Colonial Candle Autumn Bliss scented candle review and I’ll talk to you soon!
I went over to my once co-worker’s house today to pick up some documents. He’s kind of a home fragrance enthusiast, even more so than me and he’s actually the one who introduced me to all the different candle and home fragrance brands. He has extremely sensitive skin and allergies and he can’t really use any type of perfume, cologne or fragrance in general on himself so he says he overcompensates by scenting his surroundings. We worked together for two years and he made a deal with the building management, where we had our offices, so that they let us burn candles in the offices. It was the best smelling workplace I’ve ever had.
So I was at his house and he had some summer scents from Colonial Candle burning in his living room and his kitchen and he mentioned he’d bought a new bike. We went to his garage to check it out and his garage smelled like a brand new scent to me. I saw he was burning a large 22 oz. jar of Colonial Candle Falling Leaves. He’d had it burning for at least four hours and the scent was really noticeable in the medium sized garage.

The official notes in Colonial Candle Falling Leaves scented candle are: Aromatic Anise, Spice, Amber, Wood,Vanilla.
When burning, Colonial Candle Falling Leaves is really strong on the spicy anise note, I also got a smoky wood note mixed with a non sugary vanilla and warmed up by pretty intense amber. The overall impression of the fragrance is a warm, somewhat smoky and spicy wood fragrance.
It’s quite a masculine scent and while I would never think of putting it in the garage it actually fit well in there. I usually burn laundry type scents in my garage – I don’t burn candles in my garage daily, but I will light up a scented candle in there if I know I’ll be cleaning it or when I clean the cars or if my husband is in there tinkering with them – because I like it smelling clean but after today, I’m thinking I’ll try burning something more aromatic in there.
Colonial Candle Falling Leaves in the large 22 oz. jar has two cotton wicks and a burn time of 110 hours. It had a strong scent throw, I’d say it was a strong 8 or even a 9.
Colonial Candle Amber and Oud Wood is by far my favorite scented candle in the Colonial Candle Fall collection. It’s a great woodsy, warm fragrance that I’ll burn out on the deck because I think it’ll fit perfectly once the fog comes rolling back.

The official notes in Colonial Candle Amber and Oud Wood scented candle are: Mandarin, Tangerine, Plum, Jasmine, Clove, Freesia, Rose, Sandalwood, Amber, White Oak, Vanilla.
Burning Colonial Candle Amber and Oud Wood, I first get a burst of soft citrus and amber. The citrus is soft, not really tangy, just fresh but mellowed. The amber warms them up, as does the strong jasmine note. I can smell the freesia as well and it gives some sweetness to the other notes. All the warm citrus and floral notes and backed by wood notes of sandalwood and oak. I can’t really get any vanilla, plum or rose but I do get a hint of the clove spice that almost completely blends into the oak.
The only issue I have with this candle is that it’s called Oud Wood but there’s no oud note in it. I have some oud heavy perfumes in my collection and it’s quite a specific woody note that is missing here, especially since it’s in the actual name of the candle.
I burned Colonial Candle Amber and Oud Wood in a large office, I got a nice even wax pool after about one and a half hour and the scent throw was a strong 9.
I have an 8 oz. oval jar of Colonial Candle Amber and Oud Wood. The oval jar has two cotton wicks and burns for up to 50 hours.
Colonial Candle Birch and Clove was one of my favorite Colonial Candles released last year. It’s not what I like to burn in the house but since I have a covered outside deck with gas heathers, we do spend time a lot there during winter days and evenings and this was a very good fragrance to burn there. It’s woody and spicy and earthy and mysterious at the same time.
The official notes in Colonial Candle Birch and Clove scented candle are: birch, cinnamon, clove, creamy vanilla and musk.
Burning this, I get green cedar, earthy cloves, a bit of cinnamon and pine for the base. Layered on top of it is a mix of citrus and herbs. I mostly get thyme and it fits surprisingly well with all the wood notes.
The throw on this is a 9. This worked very well outside, I had it on the main table and we could all smell it full on. It would be too much for me inside.
I’d burn this on a November, January or February evening. Paired with hot herbal tea and some snow it made for some really nice evenings.
We’re in the middle of a heat wave here and I have a bunch of watery and beachy candles burning but since my friend brought me the Colonial Candles Fall collection I’ve been having an itchy lighter. So last week I decided to just give in and give them a test burn and see how the scents are. I’ve test burned them in my husband’s office since he was away on business and I’ve burned one a day for 6 hours each to really get the full fragrance impact. Now they’re packed back up until at least November, since they are full on Fall scents and overall they’re OK, but I’m not really in love with them.

The official notes in Colonial Candle White Pumpkin and Clove scented candle are: pumpkin seeds, Brown Sugar, White Pumpkin Purée, Cinnamon leaf, Black Clove, Sandalwood, Patchouli Bark, Vetiver and Vanilla Cashmere.
Burning Colonial Candle White Pumpkin and Clove, I get the sugared pumpkin puree mixed with the clove and cinnamon and since there’s no bakery note it’s a very nice spiced pumpkin scent that is underlined by the patchouli and vetiver.
I’m not a fan of the last two notes in the combination with the dominant spiced pumpkin puree scent. Patchouli and vetiver together give a men’s cologne felling and patchouli is such a specific note that I think it’s sort of fighting the dominant ones.
The overall felling of the fragrance is a dark, spicy pumpkin men’s perfume or cologne. Not bad and not really my cup of tea, but certainly an original fragrance and a new twist on your typical pumpkin and spice fall candle.
I burned Colonial Candle White Pumpkin and Clove in a large office, I got a nice even wax pool after about one and a half hour and the scent throw was a strong 7.
I have an 8 oz. oval jar of Colonial Candle White Pumpkin and Clove . The oval jar has two cotton wicks and burns for up to 50 hours.
