Let it Burn

4:00:00 AM

If you need to know anything about me, it is that I am a little too obsessed with candles. I have way too many, but I really feel you can never have too many! As August comes to an end and fall slowly creeps its way in, I am stocking up on my favorite scents! I will be sad to see my sweet, airy, and fresh summer candles go. Yet, I know pumpkin, vanilla, and bourbon candles are in my near future! I've compiled a list of my favs for the Fall and I included two favs from summer.

Summer Scents

Capri Blue Volcano // This utterly delicious candle is one of the best candles I have ever smelled in my entire life. It is a mix of sweet and fresh scents that really crate an awesome aroma through out the house. It is a strong candle, but not in a give you a headache kind of way. They are a little on the pricy side, but it is so worth it. They last a long time and really live up to the hype! Trust me on this one!

Archipelago Mango Tangerine // I stumbled upon this goodie in the clearance section at Nordstrom Rack. I brought it home and instantly was in love. It smells like summer in a jar and even my hubby likes the fruity smell! I do not normally go for fruity smells, frankly they give me a headache, but this one is out of this world. It is a soy candle, which is awesome and it burns for a long time. If you ask me, this one is a summer winner and would be perfect in any house! I can't wait to get a back up one for next summer

Fall Scents

Yankee Candle Vanilla Burbon // If you like the smell of bourbon and Luke Bryan, this candle is for you! LB actually created this scent for Yankee! How fun is that! I bought this candle a little early for the Fall season, but that hasn't stopped me from trying it out. I really enjoy the warmth that this scent gives my home and it smells like fall heaven. The vanilla is the main player in this one, but the bourbon does make it feel more homey. I really love this candle and it will be burning all Fall long!

Sample House Signature Blend // Shopping locally is very important for me and this adorable boutique in Dallas is one of my favorites. They have this signature scent that really brings me memories of home. I was so excited when they made an online shop, because I had to wait until I flew home to stock up! These candles really make my house smell like home. When people come over I get a lot of compliments on how my house smells so good. It's these lovelies that make the house smell ahh-mazing.

Yankee Candle Spiced Pumpkin // What is Fall without pumpkin? Nothing! As a self-proclaimed pumpkin connoisseur, this one is my favorite pumpkin candle. It is a perfect blend of pumpkin and spices that makes me instantly think Fall. I love it! As cliche as this sounds, I like to burn it around Thanksgiving time, because it reminds me of the smells of Thanksgiving dinner. It's a lovely candle that combines warmth, spice, and goodness all into one really fab candle!

Just a few thoughts to leave you with. If you want to reduce the amount of soot that your candles give off, keep the wick trimmed and low. The smaller the flame, the less soot emitted. Also, if you shop Yankee Candle make sure to take advantage of the coupons and sales! They have fabulous sales all the time and really good prices! I linked some of my other favorites for you to try out. I have way too many to put into one post!

  14. This post made me smile and think of my roommate from last year- even though candles aren't allowed in the dorms at our college, she always broke the rules and was always burning at least one or two of them! :-) I would like to think that I'm a candle person but everytime that I buy one I never burn it haha!
