Autumn Yankee Candle Haul

AutumnCandles11-7127.jpg

I am so anxious for Autumn to finally be here; today we had some really blustery weather here in the UK and I secretly quite enjoyed it. Yankee Candles has a lovely selection of Autumnal scents that I have been excited to try. They are all really interesting and not at all what I expected. Have a look at the different scents; when I think of Autumn I think of apples and spices, warmth and pumpkins…none of these are that but they are a really interesting take on Autumnal scents:

Autumn Night:

This scent smells like a warm, fruity aftershave; it’s lovely and fresh smelling:

Top: Bergamot, Grapefruit, Black Peppercorn
Mid: Lavender, Maple Leaf
Base: Vetiver, Oak

The Grapefruit definitely comes through and it’s a lovely scent but it doesn’t particularly smell like ‘Autumn’ to me.

Autumn Pearl

This is a sweet, vanilla-fruit scent that’s quite light.

Top: Pink Orchid, Pink Lady Apple, Plum
Mid: Jasmine, Tea Rose, Freesia
Base: Patchouli, Creamy Vanilla, Spun Sugar

This reminds me of a fresh, dewy cold Autumnal morning. The apple scent is sweet and comes through quite strongly as does the floral note.

Fireside Treats

Yuuuum! This marshmallow scent is so sweet and toasty.

Top: Marshmallow
Mid: Crystallized Sugar, Vanilla Fluff
Base: Cedarwood, Glowing Embers, Firewood

I usually am not at all a fan of sweet scents - and this is about as sweet as it gets - but I love this fragrance as the slightly smoky smell underneath the marshmallow scent makes it feel so warm and cosy. I am surprised but I’m a real fan of this one!

Crackling Wood Fire

I love love loooove this candle! It’s like someone set some incense on fire and the smoky tone is lovely. It’s zesty and definitely Autumnal.

Top: Nutmeg, Myrrh, Cinnamon
Mid: Vanilla, Amber
Base: Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Smoky, Incense

This is a really beautifully balanced scent that’s cosy and warm. It’s my favourite of the Autumnal range.

Autumn Glow

This fragrance is rich and sumptuous. It’s described as a ‘walk through the woods’.

Top: Sparkling Citrus
Mid: Autumn Blossom, Fresh Cut Herbs
Base: Patchouli, Tonka Bean, Golden Amber

It’s a very musky scent and slightly fruity as well; rich and warm just like the colour of the wax. A very interesting take on Autumnal fragrance.

These Autumnal candles are quite unusual and different from what I was expecting. I really love how they are not Christmassy at all - sometimes Pumpkin Spice can smell quite festive and so these fragrances do not cross the Christmas line at all which I really like. They smell really beautiful when you burn them and make the room feel so cosy.

My favourite candle is Crackling Wood Fire. I think it’s the perfect Autumnal scent; so if you’re looking for your candle for this season, that would be my suggestion!
