Autumn Candles – Blogtober 2018 – Day 2

Autumn for me, means new candles and burning them so our home smells amazing and inviting.  With Alex being that little bit older, I am planning on burning candles more often, like I used to before hw was born.  Today in day 2 of the blogtober challenge I am sharing some of my favoutier candles that I would like to buy and what I already have.  


Theres something really magical about listening to a Woodwick candle burning.  The candle crackles like a log fire, filling the room with that homey feeling you can only get when there’s a fire roaring.  

The scent that we have is called Evening Bonfire.  It smells like a chilly autumn night beside a bonfire.  At least that’s what it remind me of.  .  Within seconds of lighting the candle the scent is noticeable all through our flat.  They are a little expensive but I do feel that they are worth it. 

Yankee Candles

I am a bit of a sucker for Yankee Candles.  Over the years I’ve had so many different scents in jars, melts and tea lights.  The scents I currently have my eye on are Crackling Wood fire (can you see the theme lol).  It is described as a warm cedar wood fire with a little hint of nutmeg and warm amber/.

Warm Cashmere is another once I’d like to add to my candle collection.   I saw these when I was shopping.  This scent Is described as calming  sandalwood with exotic patchouli.  This smelled incredible in the store, I might get this in tea light form as I would probably use it all year round.

The previous candles I’ve mention can be a little on the pricey side.  A more affordable budget friendly range I like is Glade, there candles are reasonably priced and I can get them whilst doing the food shop.  

Recently I picked up Spiced Apple candle.  I’ve had this one a few times before and I love it, its so warming and spicy.  I could smell it all the way round the supermarket.  It makes our house smell amazing and cosy.  I can smell it when its not burning which is fab.

  1. I’m a sucker for anything that smells like baked goodies – apple pie, cupcake, cinnamon roll, etc. My house can smell delicious without the calories 😉
