Pumpkin Spice Candle Season!

fall candles 2016As a Monday morning pick me up, I thought I’d start you off with something we all look forward to every year- fall candles! Seriously, I get so excited over these delicious smelling things. Marketing emails I get have been featuring more and more fall-themed items lately. I’ve been trying to ignore them because my summer is not yet over but it’s a little hard to when everyone else is getting excited too! The other day, Bath & Body Works sent me an email featuring their fall candles and fragrances. I tried to “keep calm and carry on” but I couldn’t. Later that day, I found myself wandering into one of their stores sniffing every candle I could get my hands on.

I remember a few people commenting on their Facebook page saying that the candles looked like something that would be sold in Walmart as opposed to B&B Works. Yikes! Not what the marketers were going for I’m sure. I did a post (link here) last year on the candles so you can see which is better!

My mom always decorates for Autumn with pumpkins and chrysanthemums on the front steps and a cinnamon candle burning on the kitchen counter. It’s easily one of my favorite memories from growing up! Some of the newer fall-ish scents have sparked my interest though, like the “Crisp Morning Air” and “Sweater Weather” scents. They are a little more masculine and much less sugary!

I love the aesthetic appeal of all the candles together. It really sells me on the product. As we all know, packaging and presentation are everything in the world of marketing! Let me know what your favorite candle is in the comments below!

  1. The fall candles at B&BW are my absolute favourites!! Last year I bought a Pumpkin Pie candle, which smells amazing, and I also got Pumpkin Pecan Waffle hand cream (so delightful!). I also have a mini Autumn scented candle, which smells like fresh apples on a sunny fall day.
    I’m not sure yet which one I’ll splurge for this year but I can’t wait ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Love this post! My favorite time of year is just around the corner!!! It was almost 100 degrees here yesterday, but it will start cooling down soon. Like you, I love anything pumpkin spice or anything that sounds like autumn in a candle scent. Yay for autumn!!!!!
