Pumpkin, Cinnamon Spice, Cranberry Orange – oh my! The changing of the seasons is no longer limited to a drop in the temperature of the air, it’s now signaled with a change in the smell in the air too! But you don’t have to step outside to enjoy it. Bring the scents of fall into your place with a simple swap of a few candles, fragrance oils or reed diffusers. Incorporate any of our following suggestions to add an aura of coziness, ambiance and ooh-la-la to any space!
Yankee Candle offers a whole wonderfully-smelly line of fall scents such as Apple Cider, Creamy Caramel, Spiced Orange and Autumn Fruit. Their candle jars are perfect for everyday use because they eliminate any wax-drip concerns. If you adore a scent, commit to a large candle jar that’ll last you the entire season. We like to mix things up with several small jars, but only burn one scent at a time or you’ll have a sensory overload!
If your décor takes a modern approach, then Pier One’s Fall Fireside Candles will fit right into your mod space. A blend of cedar wood, oak moss and musk – they’ll smell great too. Pick up a box of nine tealights or votives and drop them into any candle holder or sconce.
Fragrance oils are the perfect choice if candles just aren’t your thing or if you live in a high rise that does not allow them. But who needs ‘em, anyway? Bath & Body Works carries a line of fragrance oils from Slatkin & Co. that’ll make you a firm believer in flame-less aromas. Check out their Autumn scent for a “crisp fall fragrance” that blends dark pomegranate, red delicious apple and fig with notes of fir balsam and rich cedarwood. It’s a sophisticated take on fall.
Reed diffusers are an equally attractive choice for those of you who live in high-rise apartments or condos. Bed Bath & Beyond is carrying a signature line of fall fragranced diffusers from Yankee Candle. Choose from Spiced Pumpkin, Autumn Wreath or Farmer’s Market. We chose the Farmer’s Market as our favorite for its scent of berries, apple, peaches and spices.
