    Default what candles are you burning this fall?



    i am loving diptyque santal and mousses (moss), l'artisan parfumeur pour des prunes (the most delicious scent of a golden, crispy plum tart still bubbling from the oven).

    i have lorenzo villoresi olea fragrans on order, which is an osmanthus scent, and also star jasmine and papyrus from er'go candles.

    does anyone have favorites to suggest? i live in one of the coldest areas of the country, and candles are absolutely essential to keeping my home warm and smelling good through the six months of winter we have!!

    I currently have Witch's Brew from Yankee Candle. It smells like sweet patchouli!

    I'll be burning Ergo's Kiwi candle. It is THE strongest candle of their collection that I have tried (of about 7, including the solo and silver collections), more fragrant than their "more potent" scents. It can be a bit much, but it can fragrance a large room easily.

    I've stocked up on Rigaud's Ebene candles, so that's what I've been burning recently.

    well, what I wish I was burning and what I actually have are 2 very different things...I was sent a Bendel Orange Flower candle so that's been burning this week, I'm getting ready to start burning a Diptyque Tuberose candle...before that it was Yankee Candle Midsummer's Night, and a friend made me some Blackberry Vanilla Musk candles that smells like Trish #9...

    At the moment I'm burning the Forêts candle by Christian Tortu. It was created by Annick Goutal for Tortu and smells of forest flowers and pine.

    While I would like to regularly burn candles from Aedes, my pocket can't afford it. I have five or six from http://www.sweetscentscandles.com/ whose scents are a bit more sophisticated than the "big" candle companies...

    Archipelago Botanicals "Stonehenge" - smoked cedarwood, bergamot and amber. Marvelous. I bought this on the recommendation of a Perfume of Life member whose taste in fragrances runs similar to my own.

    I have a great time and really enjoy burning just about any fragrant candle any time of the year, but have recently discovered the "orangewood" and "palmberry" soy candles from a candle house called bluewick. I am in love with orangewood!!! check it out at www.bluewick.com. I have also loved votivo red currant for what seems like forever now...

    My long awaited Diptyque Feu de Bois candles came in a few weeks age and I'll use up my remaining stock of Illuminations' woodsiest scents.

    I just bought a new candle by Tyler Candle Company at a local store ( They have an actual website but it is under construction. There are also other websites that carry them). I bought Paris and it is a lovely Rose blend, very fragrant! They are unbelievably reasonable in price. It was $20 for a 22 oz. candle with a 110-130 hour burn time. The packaging is cute too. They have a lot of nice scents to choose from....I am going back for more next week

    Cranberry and Engine Starter from pocono candles
    http://www.poconocandle.com/jar.html

    One of my favorite places to visit in the PA mountains; have been burning their jar candles for years now and they do prompt mail-order service, with well-packaged boxes. People who visit my home for the first time always comment on the scent in house, and are surprised that I have 3 cats and 2 dogs.

    Cèdre d’orient by Parfums Nicolai, ambery woods with a bit of fresh pine, simply lovely. The official notes are cedar, gaïac wood, carnation, and leather. The ambery naunces must have came from the musk combined with spicy carnation. Throw is excellent although it isn't the cleanest candle I've burnt.
