  • Step out of the kitchen and into the party with Half Baked Pumpkin Smash by Tieghan Gerard. We worked closely with the celebrated food blogger, recipe developer, and stylist to perfect a mix of pumpkin spice, cinnamon stick, and cardamom blended with brûléed orange, salted maple, roasted chocolate, and a dash of whiskey. Whether it’s a dinner party or date night, Pumpkin Smash is the cozy, inviting candle you’ll want to burn all season long.

    8.5 oz candle: 50+ hours of burn time
    50 oz candle: 200+ hours of burn time

  • We use the same, premium quality fragrance in our scented candles that we do in our fine fragrance. For optimal burn and performance, we pair this with a high-end blend of soy and vegetable wax that enhances the concentration and throw of your candle’s scent.

  • All of our candles are formulated with clean industry standards. That means they’re non-toxic, paraffin-free, vegan, and cruelty-free. We also use 100% pure cotton fiber wicks for a clean, safe burn. From the beautiful containers to the formulas, our scented candles are 100% made in the USA. If you have any questions or concerns about our formulas, please email us at hello@snif.co

  • Our 8.5 oz candles are designed to burn for 50+ hours and our 50 oz candles are made to burn for 200+ hours when properly cared for. The combination of our high-quality raw materials, blend of soy and vegetable wax, and our pure cotton wicks ensure that our candles will perform for an extended period of time.

  • On your first burn, allow the entire surface of wax to melt (2-3 hours). Limit each burn to a max of 4 hours and make sure your candle is lit in a safe place. Between burns, trim your candle wick to 1/4" before lighting. This will help reduce smoke, maximize burn time, and reduce mushrooming. For your safety, keep your wax free of debris. Never leave your candle unattended and do not place the lid on your candle when lit.

Note: This limited-edition candle is excluded from our trial program.

tieghan's pumpkin smash recipes

    • 1/2 cup maple
    • 1/3 cup water
    • 1/3 cup pumpkin puree
    • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin spice
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • Sea salt

    • 1-2 ounces spiced pumpkin syrup
    • 2 ounces (1/4 cup) whiskey
    • 1/2 ounce orange or clementine juice
    • 1-2 dashes orange bitters
    • ginger beer, for topping (optional)


    1. To make the spiced pumpkin syrup. Combine all ingredients in a sauce pot. Boil 2-3 minutes, then remove from the heat. Let cool. This syrup makes enough for about 6 drinks.
    2. In a cocktail shaker, combine 2-3 tablespoons pumpkin syrup, the whiskey, orange juice, and orange bitters. Add ice and shake. Strain into a glass. Top off with ginger beer, if desired.
    • 1 cup melted coconut oil
    • 1 cups dark brown sugar
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    • 4 large eggs
    • 1 can (15 ounce) pumpkin puree
    • 3 cups all-purpose flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt
    • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
    • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
    • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
    • 1-2 tablespoons fresh orange zest
    • 3 sticks salted butter (room temp)
    • 4 ounces cream cheese (room temp)
    • 2 cups powdered sugar
    • ½ cup real maple syrup
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 3 (6-inch) round cake pans or 2 (8 inch) round cake pans. Line with parchment paper, then butter/spray with cooking spray.
    2. In a bowl, beat together the coconut oil, brown sugar, vanilla, eggs, and pumpkin until combined. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, and orange zest, mixing until smooth and no lumps remain in the batter.
    3. Pour the batter among the cake pans and bake 35-40 minutes, until the tops are set, and no longer wiggly in the center. Remove and let cool 10-15 minutes, then run a knife around the edges of the pan and turn the cakes out onto a cooling rack. Cover and let the cakes cool completely before assembling.
    4. To make the buttercream frosting. Add 2 sticks butter to a skillet, set over medium heat. Allow the butter to brown lightly until it smells toasted, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from the heat and transfer the butter to the mixing bowl, let cool until it's room temp.
    5. Add the remaining stick of butter and the cream cheese to the bowl. Then add the powdered sugar and maple syrup. Beat together until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla and beat until combined. If the frosting feels too loose, add powdered sugar to thicken.
