I’ve been on the hunt for some Autumnal scented candles for months, I found some fresh, fruity ones I liked for Spring/Summer and I have a whole host of festive favourites that I’m saving until at least mid-November but this inbetween season was left lacking. I’m not a big fan of caramel/apple/cidery scents so most Autumn fragrances don’t appeal but I’ve found two I absolutely love. If like me you struggle at this time of year you might love them too..
I love my Christmas cranberry scents so I thought Mandarin Cranberry was a sure thing but when I first burned it I was less than impressed. The throw was nothing like I’d come to expect from Yankee but over time I’ve come to enjoy the more subtle cranberry note and pick out the mellow manadarin.. it’s a little softer than the others and a great every day house warmer.. I finally understand why Yankee named their jars that!
Grapevine Oak was one I chose from a selection of new seasonal candles from Yankee recently. None of the others sounded like anything I’d like so this was a default choice that I hoped I’d enjoy, it’s not something I’d have picked up in a shop, the label doesn’t stand out to me but it is YUMMY. I’m not sure what I expected but it’s sweet, not sickly or too fruity with something of an outdoor element.. I don’t know what it is.
What’s your favourite candle right now?
