There’s no denying the delight of spring, and summer’s charm speaks for itself, but poor old autumn is often overlooked! We think so at Melt, anyway. But there’s certainly lots to love about autumn, and in this week’s blog, we’re looking at a couple of reasons why we treasure it so much.
Ah, crunchy autumn leaves. We adore them here at Melt, and we know we’re not alone! It’s difficult to explain the charm behind fresh piles of autumn leaves – it’s one of those things that you either get or you don’t. But we’ll try! First, there are those enchanting colours of gold, orange and red, which never fail to make them a treat for the eye. Then there’s the way they crunch satisfyingly underfoot. And finally, they appear to that inner child in all of us – there’s nothing like the primal thrill of kicking a huge pile of them into the air, and watching them flutter down around us.
Autumn sunsets are their own special flavour of wonderful, too. They paint the sky in fading streaks of red and gold, and there’s a distinctive bite in the air. The fact that they happen so much earlier means many of us miss them during the week, so when we do catch them, they take on a certain treasured significance. Plus, the chillier weather means that there’s not as many people as there usually is to witness a summer sunset, so you can enjoy a summer sunset as your own special moment, either alone or with your partner!
Who doesn’t love a cosy night in! We’ve already covered how to hygge your home for autumn, with warm throws and snuggly blankets. Now it’s time to make the most of them. As you bury yourself in the softness, you can enjoy some seasonal hot foods and drinks, including hot chocolate and warming soups (probably not in the same mug, though). If, like us, you’ve been waiting all year for hot chocolate to come into season, we’re pleased to tell you the wait is finally over! Get comfortable, turn the low lamps on, and settle in for a long night in. You deserve it!
OK, we’re possibly a little biased right off the bat here at Melt. But then again, just because we’re biased doesn’t mean we’re wrong. As we’ve said before on the blog, luxury scented candles are wonderfully seasonal, and the darker, colder nights make our little ladies especially companionable! One of the amazing things about candles is that just the sight of the flame can provide a soothing, warming effect – and that’s not even starting on some of the heavenly scents we have available!
In fact, heavenly is exactly the word we’d use to describe our Angel luxury scented candle, which is an especially popular choice for the autumn months. Then there’s Autumn, the definitive fragrance for this time of year – perfect for your cosy night in!
These are just two examples of our range of scented candles here at Melt – you can click here to browse our full range for yourself, or pay us a visit at our little shop on the farm to see them in the flesh!
