Autumnal Scents

Autumnal Scents
Autumn is here! which means days are getting shorter, leaves are going crispy, purple lip shades are out and lots of candles will be burning - in my case anyways. Whenever the evenings get darker earlier I get too excited and always stock up on candles. Last year I went super crazy with a Yankee Candle haul here which always makes me happy to look back on. So I decided to create another one but with Autumnal scents! p.s I am not great with scent describing!

 I have finally got my hands on a wax/oil/tart burner so I was able to purchase a Yankee tart oh the excitement. I only bought one tart because they surprisingly last a very long time to burn. This is in the flavour Wild Fig which is very lusciously rich and fruity so if you like scents that are like that then definitely give this a whiff! The colour is very autumnal right?

Everyone seems to love the Yankee candle in Salted Caramel so I decided to order a sample. Surprise surprise I hate it. Seriously it is overpowering with sweetness, burnt sugar and vanilla caramel. Now don't get me wrong I absolutely love the taste of salted caramel but this was too strong for me and even gave me a headache. It is currently locked in a drawer because it is too strong to even have out on display. But if you like strong, sweet scents you may possibly like this. Definitely a great candle for given strong scents.

Blissful Autumn is in my opinion autumn in a candle! It just smells exactly like autumn: fruit breezes, woody all them sort of scents. I think this is my favourite out of them all because it definitely has that autumn flavour to me in anyways. It is quite relaxing too, something I would burn whilst sat in bed drinking a cuppa and reading a cosy book!

Last Yankee candle I purchased was Lake Sunset which out of them all got me the most curious. This smells very musky but according to Yankee website this is "the serene beauty of the sun's golden ray as they dip into still blue waters, calling to mind the musky descent or nightfall" It seems like a very relaxing scent that maybe my insomnia candle for those stressful, sleepless nights.

What are your favourite Yankee candles??

  1. I like the sound of the last two, I agree if they are really sickly it's too much!

  3. I tried Salted Caramel thinking I would love it but it is too overpowering, if you like sweet and fruity scent Black Cherry is so nice for this time of year x

  7. I'll happily take Salted Caramel off your hands! It is my most loved YC for sure. Angel Wings from their nest collection is also divine!
