The September Issue: Fall Scents and My Favorite Candles

Yay! It's officially fall! I love fall/winter; it's my favorite time of the year. One of my favorite parts about the season is all the warm cozy scents that are associated with the season: pumpkins, the scent of warm clothes out of the dryer, spices, etc. I always have a candle burning in my apartment which relaxes and soothes me especially in the fall so today I wanted to share some of my favorite fall scents. Many of my scents this year are favorites from Bath and Body Works. Just to clarify, I'm not sponsored by them I just really love how affordable their candles are and how big of a selection they have. Also it's a brand that is fairly common so everyone will be able to enjoy the scents I talk about today. I hate when bloggers talk about really hard to obtain products that they love because finding them can be a bit of a hassle. I also have a coupon code for 20% off your entire order (not just candles) until October 4. The online code is FA155953 and the authentication number is 5953 in case you need that. Anyways, on to the scents...

Black Cherry Merlot 3-Wick Candle - Home Fragrance 1037181 - Bath & Body Works
Black Cherry Merlot
This is part of Bath and Body Works Napa Valley Wine collection that debuted this fall. It smells really sweet and reminds me of communion grape juice at church. This extra memory that I associate with the scent makes it even better for me. It has notes of black cherry and amber.

Sweater Weather 3-Wick Candle - Home Fragrance 1037181 - Bath & Body Works
Sweater Weather
This is a bestseller and a classic. I got it for the first time this season and  I think i'm going back to get more. It has a very clean, outdoor scent with notes of eucalyptus, juniper berry, and sage. Very herby and earthy.

Flannel 3-Wick Candle - Home Fragrance 1037181 - Bath & Body Works
Flannel
This candle is true to its name and reminds me of cotton and clothes fresh out of the dryer. The musk and bergamot notes also make it smell almost like a cologne so it's as if you are smelling a flannel shirt you happened to steal from your boyfriend.

Sparkling Pear Riesling 3-Wick Candle - Home Fragrance 1037181 - Bath & Body Works
Sparkling Pear Riesling
This candle is probably the fruitiest of the bunch and has a tendancy to make me hungry/crave something sweet when I light it. If candles can make you crave food, then this is probably best avoided when you are trying not to snack. The major notes are grapes and pears.

Leaves 3-Wick Candle - Home Fragrance 1037181 - Bath & Body Works
Leaves
This candle has notes of apple and berry. As the name suggests, it's like jumping in a fresh pile of leaves.

Mahogany Teakwood 3-Wick Candle - Home Fragrance 1037181 - Bath & Body Works
Mahogany Teakwood
This candle smells like the inside of an Abercrombie and Fitch store. I happen to like that woodsy scent so I always have one of these candles on hand and tend to burn it year-around. It gets extra love during the fall season, however.

Marshmallow Fireside 3-Wick Candle - Home Fragrance 1037181 - Bath & Body Works
Marshmellow Fireside
This candle smells exactly like you are roasting marshmellows and making smores. I love this candle but didn't actually purchase it this year because the vanilla notes in this one REALLY make me crave chocolate and I need to curb my non-stop snacking on junk food.

What scents are you loving this season?
