The days are getting shorter, and the leaves are starting to change colour. While most people would groan waking up to a grey dark day, my eyes lit up with excitement, watching bright leaves fall in contrast to the sky. What does all this poetic mumbo jumbo mean? It’s Autumn!
I mean not ‘officially’ yet, but it sure feels like it. My favourite thing to do for each season is bring out my seasonal bedding and all my favourite candles. Which means putting away my summer selection, which I loved so dearly.
So, I thought I would tell you my official favourite candles from the summer!
After today all my Autumn favourites will take its place! What are some of your favourite candle scents?
(On a side note, I am having a giggle with myself, if anyone has watched Scream Queens you will know who Candle Blogger is from that show, and I always laugh at myself when I rave about my candles because I know I sound just like her 😂)
Anyhow, I’ve narrowed it down to 6 ( still laughing over here because I sound like a candle obsessed lunatic)
To add to my insanity, I actually burn my candles throughout different parts of the summer, so I’ll start fro the top!
🌺 In the beginning of the summer I love fresh fruity scents. Anything that’s sweet and colourful, I want my room and house to be fun and fresh. With that being said, my favourite ‘early summer’ candle to burn is Georgia Peach. I love it because it reminds me of peach cider, and when summer hits you know the peach cider will be flowing. I don’t live near the Okanagan, but this candle is what I imagine the peach orchards to smell like in the summer.
🌺 As summer bursts, and the heatwave hits, I love anything that reminds me of the beach. Pink Apple Punch, and Coconut Leaves combined is like bringing the beach home with you. Coconut Leaves is a light scent of coconut and fresh air, similar to that of sunscreen and ocean breezes. Pink Apple Punch is super sweet and fruity, just like popsickles! The two combined I can imagine smell like a day at the beach!
🌺 Lastly, as summer quiets down, lazy days are plentiful. The kind where you just sit back and finally breath. Sun Soaked Sandalwood is the exact candle that makes me feel that calm warm feeling. The sandalwood in it is light and calming, while other hidden smells remind me of fresh linen.
Next is Bergamot waters, which smells exactly as the name describes. I imagine this candle is what a lake side cabin would smell like in late summer 🙂
And last of the last is Farmstand Apple. It smells of apples. What more can I say? At the end of the summer our Apple trees are drooping with fresh apples, and when we pick them their rich smell fills the air. This candle is like having that apple trees right in your room. I have never smelt anything so spot on to fresh apples. Its definitely my favourite time of summer when the Apple picking begins, and this candle embodies that excitement 🍎
I hope you enjoy this post! I know it’s different from my usual beauty and fashion, but I can’t hide my candle obsession anymore!
Hope you’re having a lovely Sunday and I’ll be here again soon!
On a parting note, here’s a picture of my adorable succulent I recently planted 🌱
