Holiday Candle Season Has Arrived!

Every year, when the cooler weather begins and Halloween pumpkins make their debut, I know that the time has officially come  to switch out my fresh summer candles for some warm and comforting fall candles. Over the past few years, I’ve come to the realize that my somewhat recent obsession with candles is the direct result of being my mother’s daughter, who is even more candle-crazy than I am. Throughout my childhood, I could always rely on my mother’s endless candle collection to keep my home smelling amazing and perfectly adept to every season. To this day, I can still be confident that a yummy candle will ALWAYS be an acceptable gift for my mother when a birthday or holiday rolls around. My favorite candles of hers were always the ones that she lit during the fall and winter seasons, as they always circulated memories of family, good food, and holiday spirit along with their deliciously comforting and sultry scents. So, ever since I moved out of my childhood home and into my own residence, I’ve had to put a lot of effort into finding my own candles that meet my ridiculously high standards. After going on quite the candle hunt this past weekend, with my mom in tow, I was able to pick out a few perfect candles to burn for these festive fall and winter seasons. So, for all of you candle-obsessed peeps like me, I suggest that you take a look at my favorite holiday scents below that you can add to your own candle collection!
