3 Autumnal Candles

Cosy Autumn evenings aren't complete
without a scented candle or two.........

3 Autumnal Candles

I love candles all throughout the year but there's something about autumnal scents that instantly makes me feel cosy. I tend to ditch my light, fresh, floral scents that I love during the Spring/Summer months for warm, nutty, indulgent scents for the Autumn.

My first favourite is from Penneys and it's their salted caramel candle. This smells just like my salted caramel cupcakes *drools* It's a sweet and warm scent that fills the whole house and makes it smell like home baking. I was quite surprised at this little candle because the scent is not only delicious but it also smells luxurious and expensive, and you could easily mistake it for a more expensive brand like Yankee Candle except this little gem only cost around €3 - bargain alert!

Speaking of Yankee candles, that brings me onto my next two favourites. First up is their 'Wild Fig' candle. A gorgeous rich fruity scent that will leave your house smelling delicious for hours. This is the first large jar I've ever owned from Yankee Candle and I'm so impressed with how long it's lasting - I can't imagine it ever running out ;-) I also love the deep purple colour of the wax, it's perfect for adding a touch of autumn to your home decor!

The next Yankee candle favourite is their 'Home Sweet Home' candle. Infused with cinnamon, baking spices and a hint of tea this scent is like Autumn in a jar. It also resembles a (dare I say it) Christmas scent, that's definitely due to the cinnamon. The cinnamon was the most dominant of the ingredients and it takes a few hours for the scent of the spices to draw through. It's a true warm autumnal scent perfect for cold rainy evenings. Love!

  3. The salted caramel one looks gorgeous, I can't believe it's from Primark, just look at that packaging! (Insert heat eyed emoji here).
