Starting my Autumn Apple candle from Bath and Body Works. I hope this is a good fall scent! I bought two of these and two Leaves in the 4oz since it's 2 for $10. I see some Halloween stuff has been placed on their website so head on over and take a look. I can't wait to see what else they come out with and I hope there will be a 2 for $20 in the 3 wick 14.5oz candles soon!!

Two boxes are out for delivery!! First, my Diamond Candle should be here today. I ordered Carnival Candy which is supposed to smell like cotton candy, I really couldn't decide what I wanted so I picked whatever I thought would be a little different than the usual scents I pick. I had Apple Slice in the basket but changed my mind at the last minute...I hope I won't be disappointed. I am going to get an Apple Slice and Vanilla Cupcake the next time I order from this company. As soon as it gets here I will start the wax pool process and write a review.
Second, I had a Yankee Candle order shipped in two different boxes. I got one of them yesterday and now I'm waiting for the second box. It has some of the new cafe line accessories. I use cafe items in my kitchen so I couldn't resist! I'll take pictures when it comes.

Happy Burning!!

Going to place an order from Front Porch Candle Co. I haven't ordered from this company but I am looking forward to it. Lots of lemon scents which is right up my alley. Do you have a favorite fragrance from Front Porch Candle Co.? Are there any must haves? So far my list consists of 16 different scents. I can't wait! I love to try new products especially since shipping is free! That's always a plus!

I finally ordered Lemon Meringue from Kim's the other day and it arrived in the mail today. I am so excited about this tart because I have been looking for a fabulous Lemon Meringue candle/tart. Something sweet, sour, tangy, creamy...just like the pies I make for the 4th of July or just for a summer treat. Lemon Meringue is one of my all time favorite scents and none of the store bought candles that I have purchased have it down. They either have a great cold throw but when I burn it there isn't any fragrance. Now, I haven't really been searching high or low for it...just whenever I would come across a lemon meringue I bought it just to try it out and it couldn't cost more then 10 bucks. $1.50 for three tarts and I have it.....I found it! This is what I was looking for this whole time!

When I first opened the plastic I didn't think it had a strong throw. I was worried that I wasn't going to get a whole lot from this scent. I was super surprised! AMAZING! Starting with the tart and tangy lemon custard, hits your tongue and makes your taste buds say this sweet or sour? Both my bright and zesty with the creamy vanilla, sugar and egg whites to make fluffy meringue. Dissolves in your mouth but complements the lemon custard. Delish....I just want to cut a slice of this pie.

I am very pleased with this and will be making another order to Kim's when I am finished trying all of my new tarts. I have only used 1 and I'm worried I am going to run out before I get more! If you want to purchase this fabulous scent click on this link --> Kim's Tart Candles

I know what you're thinking....but it's only July and you are melting a fall scent....yes, yes I am! I am trying out some fall scents so I know what to buy at the end of next month. Well I thought by the name alone this would be a great scent to try. This is another one from Kim's Tarts. It sparked my interest by reading the notes on Kim's website, "top notes of pumpkin, persimmon, apple, followed by some middle notes of blueberries, elderberries, currants, orange and cinnamon and all well rounded with base notes of sugar cane and some vanilla." She had me at pumpkin and apple. I am looking for something that is sweet yet pumpkin-y and has some hints of autumn fruits. Cinnamon or clove is a standard fall scent in my house so either one would be fine.

This one really sounds like a typical fall have pumpkin and cinnamon. Sweetness of the vanilla and sugar and some fruity notes that will give it the autumn aroma...perfect! It's a beautiful October orange color which makes it perfect to have out during the fall months. With so many spice scent, cinnamon and/or clove can be overwhelming especially when the two of them are together. This one only has cinnamon listed in the notes so it should blend perfectly with the pumpkin and apple notes.

Wow!! It's strong but in a good way since I would be using this in a great room I want something that has a pretty strong throw. I smell the cinnamon which isn't over powering and it's not overly spicy like a cinnamon's sweeter and lighter. I also get a sweet pumpkin and fruit. I can't really tell which fruit sticks out the most but it is definitely there. At times it smells like candy and others like cinnamon fruit. I really like this one and will be adding it to my list of fall scents. October will be the perfect month for this tricks the nose to think it's one thing and then surprise you get a whiff of a different note.

In my email today from Bath and Body Works it had an area at the bottom for me to sign up for release dates. Now normally I wouldn't give it a second thought however this is for the Halloween items! I know that some stores have already gotten some products in (I read this on the discussion board on their Facebook page) and I have seen 1 Pocket Bac at the store I go to most often.
I really am excited for the change because I am ready for something other than summer. I hate to say it especially since I enjoy my summers, however I feel that B&BW has come out with a lot of new products in such a short time and held a SAS (Semi Annual Sale for those of you who didn't know what that stood for) that I am over the coconut, tropical, neon colored items and ready to start collecting for the fall!
They did release some of the fall scents for their candles. I am a true Slatkin & Co. fan and am looking forward to grabbing some 3 wick candles when they have a 2 for $20 sale. I will review the scents later, I just wanted to put the word out about the Spook-Tacular Boo-Tique. As soon as I see more items or purchase them, I will snag some photos to post on here. Have a fantastic day!
