Fall is finally, finally here! Well, it is according to the calendar...
Okay, so maybe the leaves haven't started changing color just yet and the air isn't crisp when you wake up in the morning, but everyone and their uncle is getting into the swing of the season. Halloween decorations are littered across Walmart and Starbucks has already put out their world famous Pumpkin Spice Latte. But, most importantly, our favorite fall fragrances (in these formats: Jar Candles, Simmer Snap) are now available on the website – we’ve even added a few newbies! There’s classics like Mulberry and Spiced Apple Toddy, but there’s also new fragrances like Pink Peppercorn and Fall Festival. They're available in more formats than ever, including our brand-new Ceramics Collection!
You can probably tell I'm pretty excited about these scents (not that I'm biased or anything). But I honestly think I have good reason to be: Autumn is the start of candle season.
I'm not sure if you saw our last blog post "What's that I smell?" but if you haven't, it's worth the read. In the blog post, we discussed how scent is distinctly connected to memory. That’s why taking a whiff of our candle; Cozy by the Fire, might bring back memories of that college mountain weekend you spent in a cabin with your friends. Or try lighting a 22oz jar candle Pumpkin Pie. You’ll be thinking of Thanksgiving at grandma’s house in no time.
Ah! Such great memories!
So, this is what I’m trying to get at: Our candles aren’t just the finishing touch that brings a room together. They do much more than that. They bring back those forgotten memories of playing in the leaves as a child or the wonderful feeling of friendship and unity at the tailgate. And all of these things are truly priceless.
It’s your turn now – what’s your favorite thing about fall? What fall fragrances do you think are the best? What memories do these scents bring back?
