Candles are my thing. As I type, I have three burning throughout the house. And since I work from home, I’m burning candles every single day. So as you can imagine I go thru quite a lot of them.
My newest candle obsession are scents from Bath and Body Works. I am in love with the four that I have now so I wanted to share them with you. My absolute favorite is the Creamy Pumpkin. Oh so good! It’s a buttery pumpkin scent with hints of sweet caramel. Mmm, smells good enough to eat. LOVE it!
My second favorite would have to be the Apple Crumble. The tart smell of apples mixed with spices and some buttery vanilla. It’s so good and the apple scent is so strong. I love apple scents in the fall and this one’s a keeper!

It’s pretty much fall weather here in Western Pennsylvania so I’m gearing up with the fall scented candles. I placed an order from AJ’s Country Cottage a few weeks ago and they arrived super fast. I received my order in about 2 – 3 business days!
I purchased a Pumpkin Gingerbread and an Applesauce Gingerbread candle. They both smelled extremely strong in the jar so I was anxious to light ‘em up. I have not been disappointed at all by the scent strength of these candles. They smell up the entire house which is surprising for the size of the candles themselves.
While I absolutely love the smell of the Applesauce Gingerbread one, I’m not too fond of the Pumpkin Gingerbread. It wasn’t exactly what I thought it would be. It definitely had spice but I really can’t detect the pumpkin like I would have liked. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a great scent. But if you’re looking for a good pumpkin scent, unfortunately I wouldn’t recommend it as one. On the other hand, the Applesauce Gingerbread is the perfect combination of apples and spices. I LOVE it!
I’m impressed with the way these candles burn also. They burn nice and even with no waste around the inside of the jars. I trim my wicks before each use and they do not produce any smoke.
Over all I would highly recommend these candles. They produce a ton of scent and they burn very nicely. At $7.95 each, you really can’t go wrong.

Battery operated candles are a hot trend these days. It started off with just tealights but has now been expanded to include just about every shape and size of candle. I have even bought myself a few battery operated pillar candles, which are made of wax and scented, at TJ Maxx.
Now I’ve come across an even better idea. Battery operated candles that are rechargeable! A company called Smart Candle has manufactured sets of these candles which come with their own charging base. They are a bit pricey however. I’m sure many companies will follow in their footsteps with cheaper versions in the future. These rechargeable candles are available in both silicone and wax choices.
Since I stopped making my own candles and tarts, I have turned to buying them from other creative people online. Bizzy B’s Candles are nicely scented and the scent combinations are great. Currently, she is running a great sale with good discounts on most items. I have stocked myself up with tart melts for the bargain price of $0.75 each! Don’t delay, there are a lot of good scents still available. My faves: April Fresh Downey, Creme Vanilla & Cinnamon Swirl Cake, Sugar Cookie & Georgia Peach.
