You may remember that a while back, I was disappointed in the Bath & Body Works Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Shower Gel because it was missing the main star – the pumpkin!
Well, at the same time I bought that, I purchased the Bath & Body Works Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Fragrance Mist.
I probably talk about pumpkin way too much (not just on here), but I really can’t help it. Pumpkins taste so good in pies and smell amazing in spicy scented candles! I’m always hoping to find the next yummy fragrance.
So when something pumpkiny comes out, I feel the strong urge to get it. Sadly, I didn’t fall in lust with this pumpkin body splash. Let me tell you why.

Bath & Body Works Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Fragrance Mist Review
When I think of “Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin”, I think about a yummy just-baked pie like what the Pier 1 Imports Creamy Caramel Pumpkin Candle smelled like. Unfortunately, the Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Fragrance Mist from Bath & Body Works was a far cry from the home-baked scent I crave.
When I first sprayed it on, after the alcohol evaporated, I got an extremely perfumey aroma, which I didn’t like at all. It’s strong, so if you actually do like the scent, that may be a positive thing for you. But it gave me a headache almost instantly.
I can best describe it as a salon shampoo kind of scent with some fruity notes that I’m guessing are apple. I couldn’t detect any pumpkin, which was really disappointing.
But where the scent departs is with the cinnamon note. It’s definitely there, and adds a fun kick to the overall scent. It became more prominent with the dry down.
I much prefer the dry down because I feel like all the notes are in better balance, and the perfume part becomes more subdued.
The lasting power on this body splash was fantastic! While it only stayed super strong for about 30 minutes, it faded to a more comfortable scent and lasted for a good 4-5 hours on me! That really impressed me because this isn’t a perfume, but a diluted fragrance mist.
The fragrance is housed in a plastic rectangular spray bottle that’s wider at the top and then gradually narrows near the bottom, but then flares out a bit.
On the front, you see a picture of a pumpkin with the vines growing out of it. And the liquid itself is orange, which makes it festive and perfect for the fall.
Final Verdict: 4.5/10
Although the dry down was a more pleasing scent to me, I still didn’t enjoy it. I was hoping for a natural kind of pumpkin-pie smell, but instead, I got a really synthetic perfumey apple scent.
Did you try this fragrance mist? If so, what was your first impression? If not, have you tried any other pumpkin-inspired fragrances?
I’d like to wish all my neighbours down south a very Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂 Hope you have a wonderful time with your family!
