Fall Candle Haul

Hey, all! It’s finally the weekend and time to enjoy some downtime. When I was a junior in college, I started this tradition of buying scented candles during the fall and winter months. Let me just say, if you don’t have scented candles in your home then you’re missing out. My family, specifically my grandmother and aunt, are paranoid about fire. So, I didn’t grow up with candles in my house. But, when I lived on my own I fell in love with scented candles! This past weekend, Bath and Body Works had their famous 2 for $24 sale. I obviously took advantage and decided to get my 3 favorite candles, along with a newbie. So, I decided to share my favorite fall candles with you on this fall Saturday.

Description: Celebrate the season with a warm blend of toasted marshmallows, smoldering woods, and creamy vanilla reminiscent of a cozy evening ’round the bonfire. 

The reason I fall in love with a scent is because it reminds me of a specific memory. Marshmallow Fireside is my #1 candle.  This candle smells sweet and woodsy with a mix of vanilla and man, haha. Yes, I sometimes think of men’s cologne when I smell this and it smells glorious! It also slightly reminds me of one of my best friends, Matt.

Everyone knows I love anything with pumpkin, especially during the fall. This candle reminds me of my senior year in college, during the fall. This is literally what my room smelled like 24/7 from October-December. I just couldn’t get enough!

Let me just tell you, this scent is super sweet. So, if you don’t like very sweet scents then don’t buy this. This scent reminds me specifically of Christmas when I was 13 and my cousin’s gift to me was a Vanilla Musk bath and body gift set. I love it. I usually burn this towards the end of fall and the beginning of winter.

This is the newbie to the group. It doesn’t remind me of anything, but it smells like a man’s shirt. So for all you single people out there…if you don’t have anyone to cuddle with then buy this candle, haha! This candle smells so good. When you walk in the room, it’ll smell like a man’s apartment. Well, it’ll smell like a good-smelling man’s apartment. I know some guy’s who don’t have the best-kept homes haha. Needless to say, I’m glad I bought this candle.




  1. Love, Love, LOVE the Marshmallow FIreside one! You have described it perfectly! For Christmas, the Fresh Balsam is the closest thing to a “real tree” scent I’ve found.
