Scents of the season... Autumn

Autumn is my favorite season for many reasons ~ the beautifully colored leaves, the crisp weather, pumpkin-flavored goodies, apples, the holidays...
And of course, the scents. I love cinnamon and nutmeg ~ they smell like autumn to me. Not to mention hot apple cider mulling on the stove and a pumpkin pie baking in the oven. Swoon worthy.
Scent is one of those finishing touches in a beautiful home ~ spices in the autumn, peppermint and evergreen in the winter, flowers in the spring and freshly cut grass and the ocean in the summer are my favorites. Do you have a favorite autumn scent?


  1. While my favorite seasons are the warm ones, I, too, enjoy those spicy scents of autumn; however, I must admit, I am one who burns cinnamon-scented candles even during the summer. I just love the smell of cinnamon. And, of course, pumpkin baked goods are not just autumn to me...I can eat pumpkin pie year-round.

    Have a wonderful weekend.


  2. Bought a cinnamon candle the other day. The scent fills the house - divine!
