Like everyone else in the blogosphere, I have an obsession with all things fall. Unfortunately, living in Alabama I barely get to experience it. I joke that sinse I don't get to experience fall, I at least make my house smell like it. Hey, it works for me. I know you've all noticed my love of candles and fall scents so I'm putting them all together in one post.
Slatkin & Co. candles are my hands down favorites. My only complaint is that you can't get a bigger size than 14.5 oz. They always have a great, lingering scent though. Leaves and Creamy Pumpkin are my fall favorites. A couple of things - make sure your wicks are about 1/4 in long so they don't burn too fast, and if you buy the Slatkin & Co. candles from Bath & Body Works wait for the 2 for $20 sale! They have it every few weeks so just sign up for the emails so you'll know when it's going on. The candles are regularly priced at $19.50 so getting 2 for $20 is basically a buy 1 get 1 deal.
Burning tarts is an easy way to fill a room with a smell you love. I get my tarts from Yankee Candle but I'm sure other places sell them, too. The ones from Yankee you can burn several times (you use a tea light), and the tea lights burn for about 5 hours so you get a good bit of time out of them. My favorites are Pumpkin Buttercream, Cinnamon Stick, Macintosh Spice, Pumpkin Pie and Harvest. If you get the ones from Yankee, once again, sign up for the emails because while they retail from $1.99 they frequently go on sale for $1 and Yankee emails coupons, sometimes up to $15 off. Makes for a pretty good deal when you combine it. (Hey, you have to look out for these things when you like to go shopping as much as I do...) Also, just get the big pack of unscented tea lights from Target. Much cheaper than getting the scented ones and I don't notice any difference.
Ok, so those are some of my favorite fall scents and a few tips on how to save a buck if you want to keep a constant stream of candles and tarts burning in your house like I do :)
What are your favorite fall scents?
