Ah! I love fall. And not just because my birthday falls (ha, pun intended) right at the beginning. I love fall for the crispness in the air. And for the smells. Pumpkin everything, spicy cinnamon and sweet clove. It makes me wish we’d be able to burn candles at our house. But with 2 cats and both of us on the clumsy side, it’s really not a good idea.
However, there are a few seasonal candles we keep in the house just to smell them. One of these we bought several years ago at, oddly enough, a gas station. Originally it was the type of candle that had layers. 3 to be exact. Banana nut bread, toasted coconut, and hazelnut.
Unfortunately we left the candle in the car for a bit after we bought it, and with the summer heat (yeah, it was in there for several months. In our defense, um….yeah, I got nothing 😛 ) the layers melted together, forming one giant scent bomb that can’t even be burned because the wax, in it’s semi liquidy state during the summer, bubbled up and covered the wick. It didn’t help that the candle flopped over on it’s side when it fell out of the box it was in, onto the floor of our car.
I actually have a confession to make regarding this candle. I didn’t buy it for the scent. I bought it for the name. I mean, with a name like “SMELL MY NUTS,” it’s just screaming to be bought and displayed proudly in the home. Right in between Junior’s bowling trophy and that sweet picture of your grandparents on their 50th wedding anniversary!
Tis the season, y’all!! 😀
