Fall brings a gentle promise—the promise of cooler nights, bursts of color, nostalgic family traditions, and the best-scented candles.
We know how powerful our sense of smell is and how it impacts us more than any other sense. Still, the most notable thing about our scent-memory connection is how in an instant, we can be transported back to an experience, as if it's happening in real-time.
Another remarkable fact about our brain is that it can't tell if we are genuinely experiencing something or simply replaying a memory. Every neuron that fired when the memory was first made fires as if it's happening again. So your scent neurons, how you felt, what you heard, saw, everything lights up.
For example, a slight whiff of freshly baked banana bread takes you back to grandma's kitchen. You perched up on that old wooden stool, helping her pour in the white sugar.
Let's look at the memories you might get to relive based on our 2022 Fall candle collection.
Farmstand Apple = Family Trip to the Orchard
Close your eyes. Listen to the wagon creak while rolling down a narrow dirt path. As the wagon comes to a stop, you spot the perfect apple. Standing on your tiptoes, you reach up and pluck the glorious fruit. Biting down on the mouthwatering goodness you enjoy the smell of tart sweetness from this year's harvest.
Toasted Pumpkin Spice = Pumpkin Patch with Your Favorite Baker
Get in the car kids; we're heading to the pumpkin patch. Today, the owners have invited vendors and they have sprinkled their pop-up shops in the field.
Walking down the row, you spot your favorite small town baker. Closing in on the distance between you and her infamous baked treats, hints of spice fill the air paired with silky buttercream and pumpkin laid on a base of smoked embers and sweet vanilla.
Cappuccino Brûlée = Quaint Coffee Shop
This soy candle will remind you of the cute coffee shop on the corner. Close your eyes, and imagine walking down the street. It's a fantastic fall day with crisp leaves dancing all around you. As you pull open the shop's door, you're greeted with warm vanilla beans, freshly brewed coffee, and cocoa beans.
Autumn Breeze = Fall Stroll
You wrap your chunky knit scarf around your neck and head out to enjoy a seasonal stroll through your local park. As you step out, your backdoor you take in the bright bursts of yellows, oranges, and reds, it's stunning. Close your eyes and inhale, can you smell the freshly fallen leaves, Red Delicious apples from your neighbor's tree, wild berries, orange zest, spice, and white musk? Autumn Breeze will have you on another dimension.
