I am a huge candle fan, whenever I go into Ikea Pete has to march me through the candle section before I go mad and buy 30 that I don’t need!
I like to change my candles up in the house depending on the seasons, I have a few staples that I like to leave out all year round like my Aldi pomegranate ones (those Jo Malone dupe candles – they are AMAZING!) But I like to have fruitier scents through spring and summer, stronger smells through Autumn and then by December our house tends to smell of gingerbread, candy cane and apple cider! Perfect!
But anyway, I thought I’d show you a few that I’m loving in my autumn/Halloween collection.
First off a candle that Pete’s parents bought me back from the States last October! The perfect Halloween candle – Velvet black pumpkin by Yankee candle! This lives in our lounge on our coffee table. It’s a gorgeous subtle pumpkin scent and I’m Obsessed!
Next up is one I’ve repurchased again this year after using it up completely last year – aptly named ‘Halloween’ is this bold bright orange candles. It smells like sweets and I’m so happy home bargains brought it out again this year!
Then we’ve got this cute little one I found in TkMaxx last week, I definitely bought it for how cute it was, again it has a very subtle pumpkin smell and a perfect addition to my kitchen window sill!
Last but definitely not least – another TkMaxx find and again another pumpkin candle! This time pumpkin toffee, and it absolutely smells how you’d imagine. The toffee smell is strong – although Pete’s not a fan as he thinks it smells burnt – so this one has a new place by the front door instead of the lounge but I absolutely love it!
There’s a little look into my candle collection and the ones that are making me feel extra Halloween-y! What scents are you favourite for this time of year?
