Hello my décor-loving friends! I’m back with another #My5FallFavs and hope you are loving this little series as much as I am. If you missed the series last week, I kicked it off by sharing my 5 Favourite Fall Throw Blankets for the season (links to shop the styles included!). Which one was your favourite? So hard to choose just one, I know!
This week, fall has really started to set in. The chill in the air has returned and I was able to dust off my trusty rain boots and take them for a spin on my walks with our dog, Jada. She’s got a thick black coat on her so she is a much happier pup now that the weather has cooled down and she’s not so hot – poor girl! Though I love our morning walks together, they tend to get pretty mucky with all the rain this time of year. Mucky-ness aside, there is nothing quite like getting home after a chilly walk, warming up and hunkering down to start my work day with my girl, Jada, by my side (anyone else have a little shadow that follows them around?).
Front Door Colour: Beauti-Tone – Octavius
One of the décor items I like to always incorporate on my desk is a scented candle. Whether it makes me a little more Zen or it’s all just in my head, I really love having a candle burn while I work. Once in a while, I’ll catch a subtle hint of the scent that’s burning and I’m able to bring some awareness to the yummy scent and just savour it for a moment. It brings a smile to my face, can be totally uplifting and just allows for a short break before bringing focus back onto work. Here’s a current view of some of my desk decor these days.
Fall scented candles might just might be my favourite of all the seasons and there are some really killer combinations out there! I thought that it was fitting this week to share My 5 Fall Favourite scented candles for the season. Spoiler alert, this season’s got some really great ones and I may or may not have a surprise up my sleeve if you keep reading!
So, here’s the round-up of #My5FallFav scented candles and where to find them (including my surprise!). Fair warning, reading about them may cause cravings for a sweet treat!
#1 White Barn Heirloom Apple
Who doesn’t think of apples when fall arrives? There’s a definite nostalgia that comes with this scent and for me, it makes me recount memories of going apple picking as a kid and helping my grandma make her famous German apple strudel in the kitchen (I mostly did this by licking the spoon clean!). This one smells of golden honeycrisp, apple blossom and fresh sugarcane. I can almost smell that strudel cooking in the oven!

#2 Vanilla & Maple Syrup
Just as the description reads, “Linger over a lazy Sunday brunch and indulge in hot Belgium waffles drizzled with Canadian maple syrup and dusted with vanilla sugar”. Enough said, automatic winner.

#3 Guava Fig
Chic gold packaging and black banding aside, fig is not always a scent that comes to mind. But in this combo, fig and guava are a unique blend with hints of pear, cassis and apple. Sounds intriguing, am I right? Light this one up and invite some friends over for some wine and cheese. This one is classy like that.

#4 Latte by The Lake
This candle pays tribute to the country and cottage lovers out there (where you at?). The sunny mornings spent sipping a coffee on the dock were not so far behind us. Whether you bring this candle home or to the cottage, soak in the notes of espresso, pumpkin and nutmeg while you pair it with a festive latte this fall season. Love this one a latte!

#5 Cinnamon Cedar
I’ve got a special spot in my heart for this one because these soy candles are hand-made with love right here in my hometown! Vegan, eco-friendly, sustainable and cruelty free, owner, Marissa Rose, of Wednesday and Rose, sure knows how to make a killer candle combos! My new favourite is her Cinnamon Cedar candle that carries the sweetness of cinnamon with the warm and woody scent of cedar. Picture a crisp fall walk in the park! Some of my other fav’s include Vanilla Bean and Lavender Lemon, which both hold spots in various rooms around our home.
