Favorite Fall Candles

Thursday, October 8, 2015

Fall is my favorite time of the year and while it is still 80 degrees here in the south, it has been harder for me to jump on the fall bandwagon this season. Don't get me wrong, I've already put up my fall decorations, had my fair share of pumpkin spice, obsessing over dark nails and have lit candles pretty much all night long.

 Bath and Body Works have some of my most favorite scents and I think they are pretty high quality, but sometimes spending $22.50 on a candle can be a little much especially when you want like 3 or 4. However, I always use coupons when purchasing from Bath and Body Works, so I will include a few of my favorites from them.

Rewind candles are my go-to candles when I have guests coming over and I want the house to smell extra special. Rewind candles are actually more expensive than Bath and Body Works and will run you about $28 each depending on where you purchase it. However, I think it is totally worth it. For fall, my favorite scent is Merlot. I am the worst at describing scents, but the website describes it as "medium bodied varietal, bold aromas of violet and rose, pomegranate, plum and cool vanilla."

I was perusing the aisles of Target last week and was in search of a few affordable candles that I could buy several and not break the bank. I ended up buying just two but have fallen in love with them. One of them is very "fally" and other is very "spa-like." Pretty much complete opposite scents, but there is a reason I wanted both! We recently went to Mexico, and the entire resort smelt like the spa. Literally, every time Andrew and I walked into the lobby, we just stopped and dreamed a little bit that we were at the spa. We loved it so much that we even asked the resort how they get it to smell so good! They have diffusers dispersed throughout the hotel. Obviously we can't do that at home, so a candle was the next best thing. Enter "White Tea and Mint." Even though it is not spring or summer, I still want my house smelling very clean,  so I put this in my small powder room.

Because it is fall and I do want my house smelling very warm and fall-like, I put this in our main guest room. It is called "Snuggly Sweater." Need I say more?

Anthropologie candles are the same price as the Rewind, but again, so worth it. You know that smell that as soon as you walk into any Anthro store? Yup. It's the Capri Blue Volcano candle you smell. You are welcome. My absolutely favorite…and my husband's! He never complains about picking these up for me and actually buys them on his own because he enjoys them as much as I do!

What are your favorite candles that I need to try out? 


  1. I have been candle obsessed this season! I still need to get a rewined candle - they are my favorite! xo, biana -BlovedBoston

  2. I grew up in the north, and live in the south now and I feel like I get more in the spirit for fall now that I'm not worried about winter on the horizon and scented candles are one of my favorite ways to welcome the season. Bath & Body Works wins all the prizes :)
