As the season transitions from summer to fall, I can already feel the change in the air. The temperature is dropping ( sorta), and the days are getting shorter. Leaves on trees are beginning to turn a beautiful amber color before falling, and I can already sense the arrival of my favorite season and scents.
Fall has always been my favorite season. It's when I feel most at home in my surroundings, and a sense of belonging engulfs me. The scents of cinnamon, rose hip, allspice, and clove to name a few fill the air ( especially in stores), creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The aroma of cinnamon is particularly comforting, with its spicy and warming qualities. Clove has a deep, warm scent that brings a sense of calm and ease to the mind and body, while allspice is known for its healing potential. It's no wonder I feel so content during this time of year. ( Pumpkin spice is my cure)
October is my favorite month of the year. It's the height of fall, and leaves blanket the ground in a riot of colors. The air is crisp and cool, especially at night, and there's a sense of new energy in the world. People seem to be friendlier, and there's a sense of community that permeates the streets. And, of course, Halloween is right around the corner. For me, Halloween has always been a time to let my inner witch shine through. It's a time when I can be myself, dress up in costume, and indulge in all things spooky and magical. As a kid, I didn't know the true meaning of the holiday, but I didn't need to. Halloween was my time to be free and revel in the magic of the season.
I'm excited to introduce my new line of candles, each formulated with a specific intention in mind. The scent of each candle is carefully crafted to emit a unique aroma that will transport you to another place.
To choose the right candle for you, think about how the scent makes you feel. What memories or emotions does it trigger? Consider the listed scents to see if they're ones you already enjoy or that hold a special significance for you. When you smell the candle for the first time, what is the physical sensation you experience? What is the smell that lingers with you afterward?
It's also important to think about the size of the space you'll be burning the candle in. A larger space will require more wicks to ensure the scent is distributed evenly. For example, we recommend our 3-wick candles for larger living rooms. Finally, consider the look of the candle vessel (jar). Is it something you would want to display on a coffee table or shelf? Does it fit in with your home's decor? If not, does the scent make up for it?
By following these simple considerations, you can choose the perfect candle to suit your needs and enhance your fall experience.
