I know it's still August, but Yankee Candle released their new scents for fall, and now I'm suddenly wearing a sweater. Also a perfectly cozy oversized scarf. By the way, where did this pumpkin spice latte come from? It's autumnally delicious.
Honeycrisp Apple Cider
After a whiff of this candle, I'm the kind of person who has their shit (and shared Google calendars) together enough to organize an early season apple picking excursion. The reward? Single source, organic, fresh pressed cider, made exclusively from the delectable Honeycrisp (none of that Red Delicious garbage here). It's the nectar of the autumnal gods. And it smells like success (with a base note of musk).
Oh, is the sun going down? That happens so much earlier in the fall than in the summer—let me light this candle. But now I'm no longer in my living room—I must've spent hours picking out the perfect fallen leaves to press betwixt the pages of my Robert Frost anthology. I'm just going to enjoy this moment, surrounded by these colorful trees, and breathe in the Smoked Clove-scented forest around me (with notes of Red Pine, Blue Spruce, Red Cedar Bark, and Balsam, obviously).
Dazzling Red Maple
Speaking of leaves, none are as brilliant as those of the Red Maple. They're really quite exceptional, don't you think? I lit a candle and now I have an uncontrollable urge to dive into a pile of them and make leaf angels, surrounded by the aroma of Sparkling Bergamot, Juicy Citrus, and Neroli. I go for it and get leaves adorably stuck in my hair, but I'm surprisingly not damp or dirty at all. Thanks, candle!
Warm Luxe Cashmere
All that impromptu leaf peeping can really tire you out. Good thing there's this candle to keep me warm and cozy. Except now I'm literally under a pile of the softest goat's wool, blissfully enveloped in Velvet Petals, Amber Silk, and Creamy Sandalwood. It's the Martha Stewart of blanket forts in here, and I'm never leaving.
Sugared Pumpkin Swirl
Not all pumpkin things are #basic. This candle instantly finds me the perfect vest and equestrian boot combo so that I can order my latte with half pumpkin spice, half caramel drizzle, and half vanilla (when you're this classy, math doesn't apply to you).
Moonbeams on Pumpkins
Fun fact: Like crystals, the moon can charge your pumpkins. Or at least that's what the scent of Pumpkin Spice mixed with Sweet Orange has me believe. I'm going to chant some mantras over it, anyway, and my chakras do feel cleansed. And now It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown is on, and I'm pretty sure it's because of the base notes of vanilla.
