Top Five Scented Candles

Once fall arrives, you can be sure there’s a candle burning around here almost daily.
Friends that know me well, know my penchant for pretty scented candles and can’t believe I haven’t already written about my top picks here before today. 
I love to give these as gifts, I buy them for myself and of course I love to receive them as well. 
I’m still trying to narrow down my selection to the one line that I’d love to carry over at
In my “maybe/someday” dreams of owning a brick and mortar store, the shop would smell amazing due to the beautiful selection of candles (plus, great tunes playing always) but until that day arrives, these lovely offerings are lighting up my life right now.I chose these candles as my top five picks for both the amazing scents and also for the beautiful containers, since (like most bloggers I know) I love to re purpose these little holders as mini vases and catchalls after the candle is gone…

  3. I love all these!! I need to build up my collection for sure. I love getting these beautiful candles. I really want to use some of them for catch-alls. I have yet to do this. These images are so inspiring. Did I read brick and mortar?? That would be amazing! I hope it does happen? Would it be in the city? or where you live? I would love to visit!

    I love scented candles in beautiful jars! I'm pretty familiar with Diptyque but the Nest ones I haven't yet tried.

  9. Love a good candle! Found one at Target a few weeks ago that smells divine – Fig & Redwood by Pure Naturals. So good 🙂
