Bring on the Fall Scents!

Bring on the Fall Scents!

I know it is still technically “Summer.”  It will be until the first day of Fall on September 23 (I had to look it up…oh that’s closer than I thought!). However, I’m trying to rush Fall along.  I want a chill in the morning air, football games where I don’t sweat in the stands, and pumpkins. Oh how I want pumpkins.  And mums.

One way to usher in Fall was to get some fall scents for our home.  I was around town shopping at several stores and sniffing candles. Does anyone else feel ridiciulous taking HUGE inhales of candles in a store?  There should be a “try it on at home” service for candles so you can sniff away in the privacy of your own home.  Anyway…all of the candles I smelled were sort of gross.  I didn’t want those smells in my house.

So I went downtown to a place I knew took great care to put out quality inventory. I knew they would have yummy Fall candles.  I went to Creative Kitchen.  I love shopping there – great food, dip and soup mixes, fun housewares, and kitchen gadgets.  And sure enough, they had Fall candles galore.  It was so great, when I walked in and told the store lady I was looking for Fall candles, it seemed like the only thing that mattered in her universe at that time was finding me the ideal candle. Such great service.

Well, I bought a pumpkin vanilla candle (that smells amazing!), and she insisted that I take one of these wax melts to try and review.

So, I was given this wax melt…but all opinions expressed are totally my own.

Fall scented wax cubes from Creative Kitchen

This is a Swan Creek Candle Co. break apart wax “Drizzle Melt” in Roasted Espresso.

For starters, when I got it on my lunch break one day, I brought it back into the office (because I didn’t want it to melt in my car)…and you could smell it then!  Some of the guys in the office thought I had been to Starbucks because it was strong and smelled so authentic!

So I got home and compared it in size to my other brand wax melts…and it’s HUGE!

Bigger and stronger than the "other guys" at the same price! Find out about these drizzle melts - the best fall scented wax cubes I've found!


And as I broke apart one cube and put it in my warmer, it smelled AMAZING.  It’s strong, but not overpowering.  It does smell like coffee, but also has some vanilla, caramel, and sweetness to it.  Very welcoming.  I think because of the quality of the scents and the wax, it will last for a while before I need to switch out another cube.

These fall scented wax cubes were strong and only took one cube to fill my whole house!

I have really enjoyed having this scent in my home.  It’s a great Fall and Winter smell without being too predictable.  Just smells like you made yourself a yummy coffee drink, without the added caffeine! ha!

If you live in Fort Smith, head down to Creative Kitchen and get yourself one of these!  They are only $6, which is the same cost as the smaller, less effective “other guys.”  If you don’t live local, visit their website. I’m sure you could call and order one of these yourself.  And if you wanted another “flavor” the shop ladies would be happy to help pick one out for you, even over the phone.  They are just so helpful there.

I’m so glad my home smells like Fall now!  Now if only the mums would bloom…


What is your favorite Fall scent?



  1. I love switching out the candles in our home to match the scents of season! I’m impatient and couldn’t hold out any longer so our home already has fall decor out haha! BUT while I’ve bought three small pumpkins, I’m still waiting to buy some mums to complete “the look” for our front porch this fall 🙂 YAY for autumn!!

  2. Mmmm… Love the smells of Fall!
