Apple Crumble is a new bakery scent that was created by Slatkin & Co. and sold at Bath and Body Works.  I do believe this is one of the contest winners from the Best Recipes contest.  The scent description from the Bath and Body Works website and it's also printed on the bottom the jar is "Baked Granny Smith and McIntosh Apples topped with vanilla crumble, cinnamon and nutmeg."
Okay before I start giving a review I do want to let you know that I don't actually light these candles.  I feel with how small they are I won't get a true idea of what the larger candles will provide.  I always put them in the freeze for just a few minutes so they will pop out of the plastic container.  Once they are out, I let them get back to room temperature before I put them into a tart burner/wax melter.  It will give off tons of fragrance!  When I am close to this candle I can smell the tart and sweet apples however when I sat across the room I could really get the full blend of all the notes.  I was worried at first because I could really only smell tart apples with hnts of vanilla.  It was almost as if it was sour smelling and I think the green tart apples (Granny Smiths) really came out more than the McIntosh. 
Sometimes I loved it and other times it was too much and I had to walk away from it.  I don't think I will be purchasing this in a larger candle but it was nice to try.  If you really like tart Granny Smith apples with hints of spice and vanilla then you would enjoy this candle.
