Yankee Candle

My impressions of their just-released Halloween line. I'm not advertising for them, I swear!

So, they've done well! I missed their party by one day but I still managed to find some great stuff. I can really recommend this season's candle scents like Vanilla Satin, Kitchen Spice, Candy Corn, Farmer's Market (ESPECIALLY Farmer's Market, I love it) and Pumpkin Buttercream. But not so much the Witch's Brew or Over the River which smells like laundry detergent. I also disliked Autumn Leaves and Nature's Paintbrush but that's just my hatred of sandalwood talking. The Scarecrows and Harvest Babies are very cute if you like cute and their crackle-glass accessories are beautiful. I want them all!

The Boney Bunch actually creeps me out, and not in a good way, but I dearly loved the Skeleton Crew and their Creepy Crawlies selections. I think I'd kill for that spider chandelier but I settled for a spiderweb tea light ($5, not too bad) and I'm burning the Candy Corn in it now. Bliss!

It's 90° and sunny outside but the leaves here in NC are juuuuust starting to turn and I'm thrilled. The heat will break soon and Autumn will arrive, at last. I'll be ready!
