It’s officially the most wonderful time of the year! Fall is upon us and even though I’ve been celebrating it for a month, I now don’t have to feel guilty about it. In honor of my absolute favorite season, I thought I would share my entire Autumn candle and wax collection with you all!
Let’s start out with my Fall wax stash. All together I have 47 clamshells ready to be melted. Granted 16 of those wax melts are Scenty’s Apple S’mores but that is due to them discontinuing the fragrance. Aside from those, would you believe I only had about 12 other Autumnal wax melts prior to this August? When Wal-Mart releases their new collections I tend to go a little crazy.
Moving on to the entirety of my Bath & Body Works collection, I only have 8 mini candles tucked away. I’ll probably try to burn these versions of Pumpkin Pie before moving on to my 3-wicks since it did not return this year. On the other hand I’ll probably never burn Spiced Pumpkin Cider from 2013. I really wish BBW still carried these miniature guys alongside all their scents rather than just the Halloween line.
Next up, I have 9 tester candles from Bath & Body Works. These are the medium jars that you sniff when deciding on which wallflowers to pick up. You normally can’t purchase these until SAS and even then it’s hit or miss. If you are able to get your hands on these, sometimes they’ll throw even better than a 3-wick while other times they’re practically unscented. I typically just use these to amp up whatever else I’m burning.
Now, what you’ve all been waiting for – the entirety of my fall large jar collection! All together I (only) have 20, 3-wick candles from Bath & Body Works. Out of these 20 candles, there are only 9 individual fragrances. It comes down to me knowing exactly what I like, being a seasonal burner, and certain candles bringing me nostalgia. Not only that, but several of these candles seem to return almost every year so I don’t necessarily hoard them. Except Cider Lane, obviously. Traditionally I burn apple fragrances in September, pumpkin in October, and November tends to be a transitional month.
Judging by my entire candle & wax collection, it’s pretty obvious Autumn is my favorite time of the year. I know exactly what I want to burn at every point in the season and look forward to it the rest of the year. While some might see this as excessive, I see this as a practical hobby. It’s also pretty great when someone enters my home and the first thing they say to me is that “it smells so good in here!” Happy fall everyone and enjoy it while it lasts!
