Candle-Related Retraction

NOT going to buy a "Sweater Weather" candle from Bath & Body Works, because their Web site describes it as an "aromatic blend of eucalyptus, juniper berry and fresh sage."  Ick, and also, Spouse is crazy-allergic to eucalyptus. 

Frankly, I was expecting something pumpkin-based, because nothing says sweater weather to me more than pumpkin.  Fortunately, B&BW appears to have the pumpkin patch more than adequately covered, offering no less than NINE different pumpkin-based candles:

Pumpkin Apple
Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin
Caramel Pumpkin Swirl
Pumpkin Caramel Latte
Pumpkin Sugared Doughnut
Pumpkin Cupcake (pumpkin + buttercream)
Spiced Pumpkin Cider (pumpkin + apple, clementine and nutmeg)
Pumpkin Pecan Waffles (pumpkin + maple syrup and brown sugar)
Heirloom Pumpkin (pumpkin + nutmeg and brown sugar)

You might be asking yourself:  does the world need nine different types of pumpkin candles?  ABSO-BLEEPIN'-LUTELY.
