This is a review of the two new Pier 1 Fall 2019 wax melts (Pumpkin Cider Apple and Pumpkin Spice). They're nice scents, but rather standard, so not worth the $3.99 price (although Pier 1 wax melts often go on sale).
Pumpkin Cider Apple
This smells like apple cider, the natural opaque type. I smell the cinnamon and maybe some other spices, and the fall apples that have that smidgen of a dirt note (but in a good way). It's a nice scent, maybe better than most apple cider scented wax melts I've smelled because it smells like the real thing. It may have a hint of nutmeg, but I don't really detect any pumpkiny notes.
This smells like a cross between pumpkin pie filling (with only a smidgen of the pie crust) and a sweet cinnamon roll. It's quite nice.
