🖤🍎🖤Good Balance

The apple is nice and fresh, not like a baked scent but more realistic and sweet but the overall fragrance is warm because of the caramel and vanilla. Really loving this one, wish it was a room mist too.

First disappointment

First time a BHCO scent has disappointed me. The two I purchased have a faint apple note when cold, but when burning all you smell is a caramel/vanilla like scent. A pleasant scent yes, but not what I was hoping it would be. I love apple so I was hoping this one would be a knock out!

Perfectly Apple

This candle is what I always hope other apple scented candles will smell like, but they're always too much. Forbidden is a welcome addition to my home and I hope it returns.


The Valentine’s Day release candles are here! They are a bit softer in composition and throw than the previous winter and spooky season candles I’ve ordered. My favorite right now would be Forbidden. As I’ve come to always find with BHCO candles, this is not your typical artificial air freshener apple scent. This is a real, sweet, fresh apple, with a buttery caramel sauce served on the side. The pink salt component is subtle—-it comes across to me a little bit like play dough! Complex yet homey, Forbidden is relaxing while also more than a little sexy. Sets the mood for movie night and neck nibbles, tee hee :)


Smells so good, Love that I can smell the apple but it has other interesting notes too. Good throw!
