Fall is the ultimate season for scents. Between rich, indulgent pumpkin spice and the sweet aroma of oranges, cranberries and cloves, there’s truly nothing like the scents of fall. And while there are always a few new stars in the fall scent lineup, the classics remain classics for a reason.
Here are our favorite classic fall scents, all available at SampleHouse this season!
Trapp’s Fireside Pumpkin has notes of glowing embers, smoking white birch logs and fresh, robust New England pumpkin that work together in harmony to create a warm and inviting fragrance perfect for fall. This candle is the perfect accompaniment to an evening of chunky sweaters and mugs of cocoa by the fireplace. Grab a few Fireside Pumpkin candles while you’re here — the scent will work its way into your heart in no time.
Orange Clove is another perfectly appropriate fall scent by Trapp that has captured the essence of the season. This classic combination of juicy orange and freshly ground cloves warms your senses and spices things up with just a hint of cinnamon. We’ve found that this candle is best suited to the first snow or frost of the season — those bitterly cold days where the sky is grey and the wind is howling. Trapp’s Orange Clove will make you want to crack your favorite book and let the warmth of the fireplace and the comfort of a few holiday cookies make things just right.
The Hearth candle, another Trapp classic, is one of those scents that inspires your creative side. With notes of autumn leaves, wild black currant, crushed nutmeg and sweet apricot, you’ll find instant comfort from this scent that evokes memories of family gathered around the fireplace. Hearth always gets us in the baking mood, and we love how it always complements whatever’s in the oven.
Tyler Candle Company’s Mulled Cider is everything you want in a fall candle. Rich apples blended with a dash of citrus, cinnamon and clove create a warm homage to our favorite beverage of the season: wassail. Rich, tart and smooth with a just a hint of spice, Mulled Cider will have you running for the store to whip up a vat of wassail so you can drink in the aroma all season long.
Pumpkin Spice is more than just a latte flavor. Tyler Candle Company’s Pumpkin Spice candle is a bit sweeter and a touch spicier than Trapp’s pumpkin scent, and every bit as warm and inspiring. There’s a reason why throngs of people flock to that coffee shop on the corner every October: pumpkin is the definitive aroma of the season. Tyler’s version evokes notes of fresh pumpkin simmered with ginger, cloves and a dash of nutmeg to put you in the giving mood. Maybe that’s why this scent makes such a perfect gift!
Finally, Tyler’s Family Tradition is a new must-have scent that blends cinnamon, clove and brown sugar drenched in ripe raisins and doused in rum. Creamy vanilla and crushed Tonka beans complete this instant classic, making it a unique aroma that is certain to get guests feeling merry. Make their day with a small votive in their new favorite scent, and revisit the holidays again and again for years to come. Family Tradition might become just that: your new holiday go-to.
