Yankee Candles | Scents for Fall

Hey ladies! If you follow me on Instagram then you will know that the Yankee Candles I ordered the other day finally arrived and how excited I was. I love it when you get huge boxes delivered to your house, even though you know whats inside its still super exciting. :) I adore candles, especially in the autumn and winter seasons. They just make your room feel a lot cosier and they look gorgeous. Now I have (nearly) accepted the fact that I can't easily get hold of Bath and Body Works candles and as much as this disappoints me, I need to have a supply of candles through the winter months so have moved right along to my next favourites - Yankee Candle.

Yankee Candle does a huge range of scents for all seasons and whilst you can't actually get hold of all of them here in the UK, the selection is still pretty huge. I purchased these from Yankee Doodle which is a fantastic website with so many candles to choose from at reasonable prices, so its worth taking a look, all you candle lovers out there. After spending ages trying to wittle it down to just two candles (its super difficult when you want every single one), I finally decided on 'Home Sweet Home' and 'Macintosh Spice'. 

'Home Sweet Home' is described as 'A heartwarming blend of cinnamon, baking spices and a hint of freshly poured tea.' I am useless at describing scents so I wont even attempt it, let me just say that its a lovely homely smell and perfect for fall and cosy nights in. 'Macintosh Spice' is described as 'Simply delicious... crisp, slightly tart apple slices sprinkled with freshly ground cinnamon.' and it has to be my favourite out of the two. Its just autumn in a candle and I just love it!

Whilst browsing the site I also came across these 'Illuma Lids'. They are super cute and come in lots of different styles to suit your favourite season and they are meant to reduce the effects of drafts and help the flame burn much steadier whilst still distributing the scent evenly. They sound really good and I just fell in love with the designs so I popped this cute pine cone one into my basket before I checked out. I also received a free sampler in the scent ' Cinnamon Stick' with my purchase which I thought was a nice little touch.

So they are the latest additions to my candle collection and I can't wait to add more autumn and winter scents, especially the Christmas ones! I figured that maybe it was a little too early for those though..

What are your favourite Yankee Candle scents for the autumn and winter months? Is this your favourite time of year to light candles?
