These new Huntington Home brand Fall 2017 scents showed up at Aldi today, although some Aldi stores got them a few days ago. Once they are gone, they will no longer be available at Aldi stores. Aldi gets four new scents three times a year, around January/February, April/March, and September/October. They are manufactured by Hanna's Candle (http://www.candlemart.com).



Banana Nut Bread

Notes:  Freshly baked bread, bananas, apricots, walnuts, vanilla, whipped butter, ginger, nutmeg crystals, and clove

This is the same scent as Hanna's Candle's Banana Nut Bread (this has not been confirmed by Hanna's Candle), so when this scent sells out at Aldi, you can buy it from the Hanna's website at http://www.candlemart.com. Super rich and buttery and banana-ey with a slightly salty nutty note, this one puts most other banana bread scents to shame. It's one of my favorite scents ever!

Here are my comparisons to some other similar scents:

- Mainstays Banana Nut Bread: There's no comparison at all; the Mainstays version is nice, but a bit artificial. Aldi is the clear winner.

- Yankee Candle Home Inspiration Banana Walnut Bread: The nutty note in the Aldi version is a little saltier and more peanutty and slightly richer, while the nutty note in the Yankee version is more of a very slightly bitter walnut note. And the Aldi version has a stronger banana note. So for me, although I love them both, the Aldi Banana Nut Bread has a slight edge over the Yankee version.

- Goose Creek Sweet Banana Bread: They both smell fantastic. The Goose Creek version is saltier, richer, and nuttier, and with a slight caramel note. It's not as banana-ey as the Aldi version though. But it's a scent monster with a 5 out of 5 throw. So for me, because of the richer, nuttier, slightly caramely scent and the stronger throw, Goose Creek Sweet Banana Bread does have a slight edge (but would be a much clearer winner for me if it had a stronger banana note).

Throw: Excellent, 3.5 or 4 out of 5



Pumpkin Brulee

Notes: Harvest pumpkin interwoven with delectable notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and pure vanilla.

This is not a typical pumpkin scent at all. I do smell pumpkin spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, but it's more cinnamony than most pumpkin pie scents, and I also smell raisins and sweet molasses. It's a fantastic scent. It might be the same scent as the Aromabeads Singles Pumpkin Brulee scent (not confirmed by Hanna's Candle), which can be found at http://www.candlemart.com, and which I reviewed in January 2017 as "A rich pumpkin pie scent with a buttery cinnamon note, like what a cinnamon bun would smell like if it had pumpkin pie filling and a rich buttery pie crust."

Throw: Excellent, 5 out of 5, a scent monster that took over the whole house!



Vanilla Frosted Cupcake

Notes: Warm Vanilla cupcake with luscious butter cream accents and sweet essences of delectable sugarcane

This is just a standard sweet vanilla scent. This is the same as Hanna's Candle's Vanilla Frosted Cupcake scent (not confirmed by Hanna's Candle), which can be found at http://www.candlemart.com.

Throw: Not Good, 2 or 2.5 out of 5 (as is the case with many vanilla scents)



Warm Apple Pie

Notes: A warm blend of fresh-picked apples, dashed with spicy accents of warm nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, and allspice over a base of brown sugar and vanilla cream

A standard, generic apple pie scent. It's a fake apple scent, but it actually smells fairly good. This is the same as Hanna's Candle's Warm Apple Pie scent (not confirmed by Hanna's Candle), which can be found at http://www.candlemart.com.

Throw: Good, 3 out of 5
