Good Morning everybody!! I've been getting into candles over the past year and I was really excited to get some fall scented ones. I got some from bath and body works because they are known to have some good ones plus I love bath and Body Works! These were the ones I picked out. I didn't go to the store so I had no idea what these would smell like until I got them. I actually bought most of these at the end of August but some of the ones I wanted were sold out or not in stock yet. I had planned to do a review on these but I wanted to wait until it was officially fall to light these candles. Then, of course I was too busy so I wasn't home enough to light them. I've only lit two recently and i'm looking forward to trying out the rest of them, therefore this will be more like a first impression/ haul.
3-wick candles :
- Sweater Weather
- Marshmellow Fireside
- Sweet Cinnamon Pumkin
- Marshmellow Pumpkin Latte
Medium Candles :
- Warm Apple Pie
Sweater Weather : This is a very fresh smelling candle. I guess you can say it smells like freshly washed clothes. I really like it. It smells very clean. Also, I really love the packaging. The label has the beautiful fall trees which is really nice. I really like that the candle is blue as well. :)
Notes : Fresh Sage, Juniper berry, Aromatic Eucalyptus, Fresh Woods.
- My sister's favourite candle out of all of these.

Marshmellow Fireside : At first sniff I could definitely smell a burning smell like a campfire but in a softer way. It has has a marshmallow scent as well but not an overpowering scent. The candle pretty much smells like marshmallows toasted over a fire. Really good!
Notes : Toasted Marshmallow, Smouldering Woods, Fire roasted Vanilla, Crystalized Amber

Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin : When I first opened the lid of this one all I could think of was the little cinnamon hearts you get on Valentine's day! I love those. That's all I could smell, the Spicy cinnamon scent. I really love it. If you don't like that kind of scent then you won't like this one. I'm a big fan of it though so it's one of my favourites so far. Although, I haven't lit this one yet so hopefully I will smell the pumpkin as well, though so far I only smell the cinnamon.
Notes : Harvest Pumpkin, Spiced Clove, Vanilla Cream, Brown Sugar.

Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte : This one definitely has a bit of a perfume smell. Nothing too strong or overpowering but it's definitely there. It also has a sweet vanilla smell which I assume is the marshmallow. At first sniff I wasn't sure how I felt about it. I did light this one though and I do like it. It's not very strong and it took a while before I really smelled anything unless I was really close to it. Considering I was in the same room as the candle tells me that the throw isn't very strong. But, I don't hate it.
Notes : Pumpkin Latte, Toasted Marshmallow, Creamy Sandal Wood, White Ginger, Praline Musk.
- My other sister wasn't a fan of this one.

Leaves : At first sniff I could definitely smell a spicy scent mixed with the outdoors. It's a perfect fall scent in my opinion. I currently have this one lit and i'm really loving it. My dad just came in and I saw him sniff his way right over to the candle and said "I knew I smelt something good." So, clearly he is a fan. (He noticed the marshmallow pumpkin latte one and asked what that one smelled like. He opened the lid and said "Oh, this one smells nice too!" So, there's an extra opinion on that one :P) Since I've lit "Leaves" I can definitely smell all the notes.
Notes : Crisp red Apple, Golden Nectar, Warm Clove Spice.

Warm Apple Pie : Omg, This one smells exactly like the label says. It smells like you've just baked an apple pie in your oven. It smells so good. When I first smelled it I literally said to my sister, "Omg, I could literally trick someone into thinking I made an apple pie!" With that being said, I haven't even lit it yet so I don't know what it's going to be like. But, so far I really like it and I keep making everyone smell it when they come here. I think it will be a really nice kitchen scent and I can't wait to try it out.
Notes : Baked Granny Smith Apple, Melted Brown Sugar, Flaky homemade crust.

Autumn : This one, like leaves, has that outside fall air scent. When I first smelled it, I didn't really know how I felt about it. But it grew on me. It's a bit fresh and smells nice. It has a little bit of an apple smell but it also makes me think of walking through the woods and smelling the trees and surroundings. Maybe even more so after it has rained. Which makes me like it even more. I have yet to light this one but I have a feeling I will like it more. :)
Notes : Bright Red Gala Apple, Juicy Fig, Eucalyptus Leaf, Fir Balsom.
- Also, I really love the packaging of this candle. It's very cute. I love the shiny gold leaf, I think it looks fancy. Also, The lid with the leaves is adorable. It's my favourite packaging of all of these candles. :)
This were all of the candles I had purchased. There were a few more I wanted but decided not to get them because I already have too many. I wanted to save some excitement for next year.
Overall I like all of these candles. There were none that I hated and i'm sure I will enjoy them all through the fall season. Which of these candles have you tried and which ones are your favourite. Let me know in the comments, I'm curious to know your thoughts.
