“Just then he saw the goblin rising in his stirrups, and in the very act of hurling his head at him. Ichabod endeavored to dodge the horrible missile, but too late. It encountered his cranium with a tremendous crash,—he was tumbled headlong into the dust, and Gunpowder, the black steed, and the goblin rider, passed by like a whirlwind... on the bank of a broad part of the brook, where the water ran deep and black, was found the hat of the unfortunate Ichabod, and close beside it a shattered pumpkin.”
- Read The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving here.

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is a classic American gothic horror story. It takes place in the 1790 Dutch settlement of Sleepy Hollow, New York from the perspective of the newly arrived schoolmaster Ichabod Crane. Ghost stories were abundant in the region and a particularly favorite ghostly character was the Headless Horseman, a Hessian soldier who lost his head from a cannon ball during the Revolutionary War. The apparition roams the hills at night searching for his missing head. One autumn night after leaving a party, Ichabod has an ill-fated encounter with the Headless Horseman in which he is chased, attacked, and never heard from again. The investigation into his disappearance turned up Ichabod’s saddle-less horse and near a deep brook his hat beside a shattered pumpkin. The tale has inspired countless artistic interpretations featuring the iconic Headless Horseman and pumpkin.

This perfect fall fragrance is inspired by The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and the autumnal beauty of the season. Infused with natural essential oils, this is the ultimate pumpkin spice fragrance. It captures the delectable and mouthwatering scent of baked-to-perfection sweet pumpkin topped with favorite fall spices like brown sugar, cinnamon and molasses. Hold on to your head, Sleepy Hollow is a must-have fragrance for pumpkin lovers.

I purchased this candle at Black Veil Studio in Salem, Mass and omggggg. The scent is amazing. And it lasts forever! I love it so much, I ordered two more as soon as we got home from our trip.

Autumn in a jar

Spices, pumpkin pie, fallen leaves and a crisp wind is what this candle is...just a perfect candle for the darker months!

Like Old-Fashioned Pumpkin Pie

I typically shy away from pumpkin spiced candles (and drinks) as they can have this cloying undertone of artificial scents and flavorings. However, I absolutely love the subtle sweetness of Samhain and figured Sleepy Hollow would be equally delicious.
I was right!
This candle is sweet without being overwhelming, is filled with those autumnal warm spices, and smells like pumpkin pie without smelling like a Starbucks drink. I love this candle and its almost masculine Fallness. It makes me want to curl up with a cup of tea and a good book.

I don't even like pumpkin spice stuff, but...

I'm not the kind of person to fall into the pumpkin spice craze and I genuinely am not a fan of how sweet most of it is. I do love homey scents though and this is a good one. The molasses is a perfect choice for this blend because you get a hint of sweet, but it rounds out the scent with additional notes instead of being cloying. This is a good, mellow, fall smell. I am so glad I gave it a chance.

If you like warm, spice smells then this is one to try. Don't be put off by the pumpkin.

Sugary Seasonal Goodness

This one and Samhain are cousins for sure, but the difference is the strength in Sleepy Hollow’s sugary molasses scent. Like a caramel pumpkin and spookiness.
