Candles I'm Burning This Autumn

A nice part for the change of seasons for me means switching up my candles! What I love about autumnal fragrances is the warmth and the cozy feeling they create. From the warming, sweet and foodie fragrances like marshmallow, vanilla and pumpkin. To fruity scents peppered with cinnamon, ginger and cloves. To the fresh, woody and leafy fragrances emanating a crisp forest walk. I love how autumn candles are usually coloured in very seasonal hues of bright-rusty orange, golden yellows and browns. So they make my interior d├ęcor look season just by simply changing my candles around! This year I have been trying a few other brands rather than just sticking to my beloved Yankee.

My original love and obsession with candles begun with this brand and I have amassed a crazy collection!

Napa Valley Sun | A large jar of this beautiful powdery scent, it's like the golden hour but in fragrance form. "Fragrant rays of golden, powdery amber with a vanilla flower finish"

Apple Pumpkin | We don't get a great deal of pumpkin fragrances released in the UK so I was excited when my friend brought a couple of these back from her New York trip for me! "Cultivated with care … home-grown apples and pumpkins blended with ginger and clove."

Sugar & Spice | Another scent that my friend brought back from New York for me. This one is so comfortingly sweet and vanillary! "A mouthwatering swirl of cinnamon, buttery vanilla, and sugar crystals all baking together—guaranteed to fill your home with smiles."

Rhubarb Crumble | One of Yankee's new Autumn releases for 2016. You've got tangy rhubarb with some delicious raspberry notes and a lingering biscuity crumble! "Straight from the oven, warm flavours of tangy rhubarb with brown sugar and vanilla are undeniably delicious."

Autumn Night | Another new release this season. I fell in love with this fragrance much more than I thought I would, it's very fresh & sophiscated like a handsome man's cologne! "The autumn evening invites with brisk earthiness and dreamy interludes of lavender and woodland notes."

Camomile Tea | This is up there with as one of my all time fragrances from Yankee Candle! Sadly retired now (please bring it back!). An incredibly relaxing & comforting scent. "The wonderfully soothing aroma of Chamomile and Honey steeped with tea leaves and a touch of citrus zest."

Blissful Autumn | To me this smells like stewed apples and pears spiced with cinnamon, so I just want to eat it! "Reminiscent of crisp autumn air with orchard fruit breezes...blissfully brisk and woody."

Fireside Treats | The scrumptiously sweet marshmallow is contrasted by some toasty embers making this candle such a delight to have burning. "The joys of camp ... mesmerized by the fire, singing and laughing, while toasting marshmallows to rich, gooey perfection!"

Nature's Paintbrush | Just look at the picture on the front of this one - autumn through and through! I really like the woody & musky undertones in this candle yet it still has a freshness, like a woodland walk. "A perfect autumn day captured in radiant, aromatic strokes of brisk air, spicy woods and warm musk."

Egyptian Musk | I actually included this one in my September Loves List. I loved the autumnal colour and the smell is divine, it's refreshing yet warming at the same time with that lovely dominant musky scent. I feel this is a warmer more autumnal version of Yankee's Christmas favourite Season of Peace. "A prized treasure… A captivating musk with hints of vanilla bean and cedar wood."

Berry Jam | This candle is a special appearance online and in some store and so it exclusively available in large jar format only. It's utterly delicious! Well worth the purchase for fruit lovers. "A sweet and tart medley of fresh berries with notes of pomegranate, cassis, peach and vanilla bean."

Candied Pecans | I love the yummy nutty fragrance of this one, make me hungry! It's quite unusual for Yankee to create a nut scent I'd like them to make more actually. "Delicious pecans complemented by vanilla, intense cinnamon and delicious praline."

Bath & Bodyworks is a brand that is unfortunately very hard to find in the UK. I first tried them when a friend brought me some back from America and fell in love with their all of products from candles to body lotions! I managed to get these two from eBay. 

Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin | I'm actually burning this one as I write this. It has a super strong throw with delicious rich pumpkin notes! Just screams Autumn in America to me. I'd definitely buy it again next year. "Harvest Pumpkin, Spiced Clove, Vanilla Cream, Brown Sugar"

Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte | This one is like a pumpkin variation on fireside treats! You have the sweet toasty marshmallow with hints of coffee and indulgent pumpkin. "Pumpkin Latte, Toasted Marshmallow, Creamy Sandalwood, White Ginger, Praline Musk"

Flamingo Candles is a new brand I've discovered in the last year as my local candle shop Candle Scentral sells them so I've been able to go around smelling all of their fragrances before buying, which is always preferable with candles!

Pumpkin & Walnut | I fell in love with this scent in the shop. As I said above you don't see pumpkin scented candles very much over in the UK so I pounced on it! Also it has a unicorn on it making it a must have purchase in my eyes. "A lantern-glow orange candle with metallic black unicorn head. A rich, edible smelling blend of pumpkin and walnut with notes of nutmeg, orange and raisins, in a lantern-glow orange wax with a dark unicorn horn embellishment sitting in the top of the wax."


My Favourite Online Yankee Candle Retailers:

The Official Yankee Candle UK Site ~ Check out their 'Special Appearances' section for US Exclusives!
Yankee.co.uk ~ I love the sets of melts & votives they do when the new fragrances come out each quarter, so I can sample the newbies before buying any jars.
Candle Scentral ~ My local Yankee Candle store sells online too! They sell the Yankee Candle special appearance candles as well as Flamingo Candles.
Yankee Scents 4U ~ An amazing site where you can purchase tons of US exculsives, plus old/retired fragrances & candle accessories that you cannot find on any other websites!
QVC UK ~ Great for their special value sets, exclusives and trios of large jars! 
Temptation Gifts ~ Probably have the most competitive prices for Yankee Candles on the web!
