At Melt, we believe that luxury candles aren’t just for a single season; they’re for the whole year! Burning a warm, cosy fragrance as the snow comes down is just as lovely as walking into a sweet, fruity scent after a day at the beach, But we must admit that there is nothing quite like lighting the first candle of autumn. It’s a sign that dark evenings, cosy blankets and hot chocolates are on their way, and who doesn’t love that?
For anyone who adores autumn as much as we do, we’ve put together some scent inspiration for your home this season. Get your comfiest jumper, a cup of tea, and enjoy!
1. Find yourself in the Forest
If you’re looking for a candle to transition you from summer to autumn, we’d recommend Forest. This gorgeous fragrance is fresh and inspired by the great outdoors, as so many summer candles are, but with a deep, smoky base that’s undoubtedly autumnal. Pine is the leading scent in Forest, but it’s far from overwhelming or sickly sweet. Instead, it’s paired with a woodiness that will transport you to family walks in the woods, crisp leaves underfoot, your breath visible in the air, and the fresh fragrance of the trees surrounding you.
2. Wrap yourself in Cashmere
A lot of autumnal fragrances centre around spice. Whilst we love that rich, strong scent, it can also be nice to change it up now and again. Cashmere is the perfect candle for just that, creating a warm and deep scent with a distinctive sweetness. It’s still rich, but also has a softness courtesy of musk, peach, and rose on a bed of amber. Inspired by the feeling of wrapping yourself in a warm, fluffy jumper on a cold day, this is a scent to get really cosy too! All you need now is a pair of warm slippers and a crackling fireplace, and your autumnal set-up will be complete.
3. Discover the true scent of Autumn
We couldn’t write about our favourite autumn scent without mentioning our signature for the season; Autumn! If you could wrap up all of our favourite things about this season into one candle, this would be it. It’s inspired by bonfire night fireworks, the sweet aroma of roasting chestnuts, bobbing for apples on Halloween, and all of the cosiness that comes with autumn. Scented with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and lifted with sweet orange and vanilla, it’s our spice-filled ode to perhaps our favourite time of year.
We absolutely love autumn, and you can guarantee that our homes are already filled with these scents and many more! If you’re looking for new candles to fill your home with a warm, cosy fragrance as the weather gets colder, any of these scents will be ideal. Or, you can take a look through our whole range of Autumn Candles to choose one that’s right for you.
