Admittedly, I'm not much of a candle gal. Don't get me wrong, I like candles and I love the way they make a house smell but I don't own very many and I'm always afraid to light the ones I do own for fear of "ruining" them.
Up until this past weekend, I hadn't burned any in our new house but that all changed when I stumbled upon four limited edition soy candles at good ol' Tarjey.
The candles are made by a company called Illume and they were on sale for $8/each (regularly $10). There were a handful of varieties available to choose from but I fell for the following fall scents:
Autumn Harvest isn't very descriptive but the candle smells like spicy potpourri with a hint of pumpkin. It's hard to describe but it smells so good that I've contemplated getting a spoon and eating it haha
Cinnamon Cider pretty much says it all -- the candle smells like warm apple cider that has a hint of cinnamon in it. I like to burn this one with the Heritage Pumpkin one shown below because it makes our house smell like I've been baking all day!
Pumpkin candle = pumpkin pie smell, right? Right but this candle smells much more rich than your typical pumpkin candle. Like the pumpkin bathed in gold before being melted down into candle form :)
Silver Birch smells like a spicy campfire to me and reminds me of home (Chicago). It's a bit of a manly candle with it's rugged outdoorsy smell but I like it!
Are you a candle guy/gal? What are your favorite fall scents?
