We are only a few days into September, and I am already rejoicing the changes in the air. The scents of Autumn engulf me as I walk through the yard, past the muscadines, pear tree, and apple trees. We have a multitude of pecans and walnuts hanging on the trees, and my heart just isn’t in a Summer place anymore.
It’s amazing how much has changed in one week. Last Wednesday Ben and I spent the morning selling at the flea market. The humidity was so thick by 10 A.M. we were sweltering and ready to pack up early. Two days later hurricane Hermine graced us with a beautifully cool 74° day without the nasty weather the rest of the state endured. The days that have followed have been warm and sunny with a slight September crispness to the air. The Autumn bug has bitten me, and I couldn’t wait a moment longer to start switching our home over to Fall decor.
The Limited Edition Glade Autumn Collection
A few samples of the brand new Autumn Collection from Glade arrived at my door around the same time the Autumn decor bit. I could smell those wonderful scents before I even opened the box, and I couldn’t wait to add them to my home.
The 2016 *Limited Edition* Autumn Collection features versions of 2 usual favorites as well as a new fragrance.
Rich Pumpkin Dream– Savor aromas of pumpkin and melted caramel topped with sparkling ginger and nutmeg to peak your temptation. Continue the tantalizing experience with hints of sweet vanilla, cardamom and buttercream that will be sure heighten much more than your taste buds.
Spiced Apple Magic– Set the spellbound scene with an utterly enchanting scent when notes of warm apple cider intermingle with spicy cinnamon. Keep magic coming at every turn when you encounter spicy clove and nutmeg taking you on an unexpected adventure.
Wondrous Autumn Nights– Let the crisp air whisper notes of patchouli, autumn blossoms and dark sweetness as you briskly step into a season of wonder. Follow the path least chosen surrounded by refreshing brushes of mint and rich leather awakening your most daring self.
I had the pleasure of sampling both the Rich Pumpkin Dream and Wonderous Autumn Nights fragrances. Although I do like pumpkin spice, I’m not a fanatic. I find that many pumpkin themed candles are much too strong. The Rich Pumpkin Dream does live up to it’s name. It is a very rich scent, but it is pleasantly rich. In fact, it made it’s Autumn decor debut this evening as part of the new cedar bookshelf my wonderful husband just finished for me.
I decided I’m not ready to go overboard on the Autumn decor just yet, but a little punch is much needed. The Rich Pumpkin Dream paired well with one of the “Happy FALL Y’all” signs I make for our family woodworks business and a small metal bucket with leaves.
I have yet to decide what to do with the Wondrous Autumn Nights candle. It does smell wonderful, but it is a bit too manly of a scent for my fall decor. Okay, it’s a lot manly. When I opened the box it smelled similar to my husband’s deodorant. Ben and I were standing in the kitchen taking turns burying our noses in the candle because the scent seemed so familiar, but neither of us could place it. We seriously looked like mad people sniffing candles, y’all.
After a few minutes of our craziness, our 6 year old, Ellie, ran into the kitchen and said, “Where’s Pop Pop? I smell him! He’s here! Where’s he hiding?” She seriously thought her Pop Pop had stopped by and was playing a little game of hide from the kids and surprise them like he so often does. That’s when that familiar scent dawned on me.
It smells just like Pop Pop’s body spray! I won’t say the name of the spray since it is a completely different company, but if you are a fan of that 3 letter body spray for men that is known for the funny commercials, this candle is for you! Seriously, it smells JUST like it! I do enjoy the scent, but I’m not sure I’m ready to commit to my entire house smelling like my father-in-law on a daily basis! I may let the girls surprise my mother-in-law with the candle for her bathroom decor instead.
Seriously, though. Go check out Glade’s 2016 Autumn Collection in a store near you. They all smell so wonderful! Which fragrance sounds the most appealing to you?
