All winter-long I pine for the bright, sunny (even sweaty) headiness of summer. But two months into “Feels like 101 degrees” weather, and I’m longing for autumn—the cool temps, chunky knit sweaters, fuzzy blankets, and heavy socks.
Completing the crisp-weather picture in my head—are the deliciously cozy aromas that fall brings: spicy cinnamon, comforting vanilla, and earthy pine (also, pumpkin bread, anyone?)…all the rich aromas that make you want to curl up with a good book and watch the leaves drift.
The quickest way to bring those fall aromas into your home in the summer? Scented candles, of course. Starring everything from culinary-inspired scents (like spiced cider and pumpkin chai) to woody notes found in nature (like acorn and pine), here are 21 of our favorites, for whether you're treating yourself or giving a gift to someone who’s craving the same things as you are.
Lavender + Violet
A relaxing scent, Lavender Violet carries a joyful, spontaneous vibe and vintage spirit. A sunny, delicious floral that's both energetic and alluring; inspired by the lavender fields of Provence. This fragrance says luxury, but in a pure and simple way. The enchanting essence of lavender flowers and garden fresh herbs produce a sunny floral that's both energetic and alluring, with a sparkling, golden touch.
You're vibe attracts your tribe. This sunny composition, built around mandarin from California, sets off the sweet, citrusy fruit infused with rich, hand-harvested sap of the Namibian myrrh tree and the tang of tangerine. The heart of intriguing clove and a hint of basil blends over a distinctively warm base of myrrh and Egyptian musk round out Mandarin Myrrh.
Peony + Blush Suede
The essence of charm, Peony + Blush Suede captures exquisitely fragile peonies in voluptuous bloom. A flirtatious, juicy bite of red apple and the opulence of jasmine, rose, and gillyflower mingle with the sensuality of soft, blush suede for a luxurious and seductive trail.
Fall into the heart of zen. Entranced by its solar warmth and sweet, airy lightness, Spiritual Gangster perfume is accented by luminous woods and grounding patchouli petals. A waft of incense, underpinned by creamy sandalwood and topped with a fresh twist of white plumeria.
The perfect vanilla, this sexy blend is pure vanilla bliss. Vanilla Planifolia combines creamy tonka bean scent is highly seductive and magnetic. A grown up expression of vanilla, this fragrance is more vanilla bean than vanilla cookie.
