candles of the moment.

Happy October everyone!!

The leaves have now turned into fabulous shades of red, orange, yellow, && brown. Have been taking my camera outside a lot lately (got a newwww camera!!! how exciting is that?! Canon EOS Rebel T3i && I am absolutely in LOVE with it! So much better than the little Canon Elf I was trying to use. Loved that one to bits, but is in no way comparable to my new one!). Have been taking pictures of the beautiful trees && the ground buried in gorgeous colour.

Just this past weekend was Canadian thanksgiving. My family all got together at my parents house and we indulged our taste buds with a delightful turkey dinner. Was delicious!

While my parents were preparing the food, I decided to go to Bath and Body Works to pick up some candles to set the scent for the atmosphere for the get together. Let me tell you, BOY was I a little bit late in getting myself in there on time to get all the fabulous fall scents. ALL of the soaps were gone, && most of the three wick fall candles were gone as well.

Luckily, I found a small counter with some single wicked candles. They had such a pretty design on the glass && was just a perfect size that I had to get them. If you don't want the large quantity that the three wick candles have to offer, yet want something that will last a little longer than the 4oz mini candles, these candles are perfect.

They had about four scents left, cannot remember them all because I was so delighted that  they actually had the scent "Leaves" left! Picked up two of the "Leaves" scent && " two of the "Farmstand Apple" scent as well, simply because they are such a perfect fall aromas.

I'm sure a lot of you already know what the "Leaves" candle smells like already! If I had to put it into words, the smell definitely reminds me of leaves, thanksgiving cooking, cinnamon, && best of all, reminds me of Halloween altogether (which, is a great definition of the month of October). It reminds me a little bit of the scent of mulled wine as well, if any of you have smelt that before. Bath and Body Works states that the scent "Leaves" is "[l]ike an afternoon spent playing in a pile of freshly fallen leaves, this fragrance embodies all the richness of the season and features a medley of ripe delicious apples, red berries and golden nectar". Well done Bath and Body Works! As usual, their scents are very very close to the actual label on the product. "Leaves"' happens to be a prime example!

If you are a fan of going to the apple orchard && picking out the finest, freshest apples - like I am - you will surely enjoy the scent of "Farmstand Apple". Let me tell you, this is an exact replica of an apple orchard scent. The smell of apple is just so apparent within this candle! As soon as I was done typing that sentence out, I checked the description of what Bath and Body works states about this candle, && look what they said!: "This sparkling orchard favorite reminds us of a bright sunny day picking apples. Made with notes of McIntosh apple, ripe pear blossom and woodsy oak". Like I said, very apple orchard-y. 

Very pleased with these scents, lit them during the thanksgiving get together, && have them constantly burning throughout my apartment :).
 I have found the true essence of fall. 

What have you been doing to enjoy the autumn season?
