Fall + new Yankee scents = Love

It is around this time each year that I get completely wrapped up in the fall season and try to take everything in while it lasts (because it is gone in a flash). One thing that I do is treat myself to a new candle or two from Yankee. They released their new fall scents late in the summer and I ran right over to scoop some up.

Here are the scents that my home will be filled with each evening and all weekend from now until Thanksgiving:

Almond Cookie
It smells like warm cookies fresh from the oven. This is one of those candles that might make me hungry when it’s lit!

Farmer’s Market
This is a combination of several fall fruits and spices.

I’m also excited for the holiday scents that are coming out. They have one called Christmas Cupcake and another called Christmas at the Beach. I have a feeling that I will love both!
What are some of your favorite candle brands and scents?

MY boyfriend is actually allergic or sensitive to most scents. So even though I like the idea of burning scented candles it doesn't happen very often

Yankee Candle - PUMPKIN PIE! My fav!

Tracy-Girl said...

I have a serious addiction to Yankee candles, specifically the "clean laundry" smell... mmm, I could stick my nose in it all day! :)

Amy Lynn said...

Christmas at the Beach!?!?!? No way! So excited!! :)

Katie said...

Both of those look great - I think I might like the Farmer's Market one a lot. Also, I am definitely going to have to take a trip to the Yankee Candle store when the Christmas ones come out. I'm especially interested in the Christmas At The Beach one!

My favorite candles are any that smell like Christmas (I even burn them at other times of year - weird, but it's comforting to me) and the birthday cake scented ones.

Leah said...

Those scents sound really good. I'm going to have to head to the Yankee Candle store and get some
fall candles soon!

Katie said...

Oh my goodness aren't their candles the best!?! I was in hallmark last night with a friend and she had to drag me out of the candle aisle. I'll have to go check out your finds!

Melissa said...

I love Yankee Candles and I almost bought the Almond Cookie one the other day! I might go back for it! I burn a candle every night! I love having my house smell really good!

My favs are Pumpkin Pie (all time fav), Cafe Au Lait, Blueberry Scone, and Gingerbread!

Taryn said...

Ooooh...I LOVE Fall and I LOVE Fall-scented candles! I burn them year-round, no matter what season it is...LOL!

Wow. Those just sound delicious!

Kaitlin said...

I am crazy obsessed with Yankee candles. I love any candle with a cinnamon or vanillas scent. I usually stock up on candles during the big sale. At our local Yankee they have my receipt up because I had the best savings they ever saw at a sale. I got 40 candles for our wedding, I paid 20 dollars and saved over a 100. Best day ever.

Gwen said...

Oh my goodness!!! I think I might need to get the Almond Cookie candle immediately!!! XOXO

Whitney said...

Never heard of Farmers Market. I need to check that out! Thanks for the recommendations!

Christa said...

I LOVE candles! I am going shopping this week or next to get some fall smelling candles!!!

Sandy said...

I am very sensitive to a lot of scents so I have a hard time going into a yankee candle. I do LOVE some of them though. Farmer's Market and Christmas at the Beach sound neat. I may have to brave the store to go get a whiff. :-)

Sarah Beth said...

I love Farmer's Market, I bought it last week and burn it every night. I can't wait to get a Christmas Candle and Christmas at the Beach sounds like a dream come true!

I usually go for the eucalypthus scent whatever time of the year. It's very calming and it can do wonders with my breathing.

YUM!! I am dying for the Christmas cupcake now - that sounds so amazing!! Oh, and of course Christmas at the beach too! Isn't it awesome how smells can make you happy or remember certain times!!

I'm a Yankee candle lover but I also like to pick up some of the little Slatkin & Co. ones at Bath and Body when they are on sale! They are the perfect size for bathrooms and small spaces.
