I absolutely love burning candles. The warm glow mixed with the scents is intoxicating to me. Bath & Body Works has the BEST candles and they have so many to choose from it is practically obscene. Each season I stockpile anywhere from 4-8 candles each time they run their 2 for $22 sale, often going back for more. I don’t really know when my candle obsession started; I just know it had to have a direct correlation to my cat. I love her to death, but she is the smelliest creature to walk the planet.
(The "Smelly Cat" song comes to mind when I look at you)
I have purchased Yankee Candles before and they smell pretty darn good, but I find they don’t burn as evenly as the B&BW candles. Plus, these ones have a rather potent fragrance so they work WONDERS for any small
cats odor issues you may
have in your home. Then B&BW did
something epic; they released their 2013 fall scent collection and it is entirely
pumpkin themed. There is nothing better
than fall weather, fashion, and, of course, everything pumpkin. It wasn’t even a question of stocking up. Heck, I even had a 20% off coupon as
The scents I picked up this fall are mostly new with a few oldies but goodies. Not pictured is Cider Donut, which had a relatively sweet scent (as would be expected). The top one is Blueberry Pumpkin Patch that, sadly, is finished but was a nice transition scent from summer to fall. Next up to burn is Pumpkin Apple, which may be my favorite of the fall scents this year.
I burn my candles in order of which season I am coming out of to which season comes next. My husband and I will smell them and rate them on a scale, which we will argue about endlessly (We seriously need to get out more). After Pumpkin Apple burns we will burn them in this order: Leaves (probably one of my all time favorite scents), Applewood Bonfire, Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin and Autumn. The tiny one is called Harvest Gathering that was a free gift with purchase and is a scent they have not released yet.
(Next time I go, I am picking up this one. It smells fabulous!)
At this rate I may need to make a second run as I am burning through a candle a week, but that’s not a problem, right? I highly recommend these. Which fall scents are you enjoying? Let me know in a comment below or on Twitter and Instagram.
