As Autumn approaches, so does the more chilly weather and quite frankly I enjoy the range of scents that emerge in fragrances. Autumn brings with it the more cosier scents, the pumpkin, the cinnamon and such to make you be more than happy to be snuggled up on the sofa in the evenings. The Cozy Home Candle is a comforting scent with it's notes of warm cinnamon, spicy nutmeg and clove. It definitely has a scent of warmth that makes it's the perfect finishing touch in any room in your house. It's medium sized jar will last you for a fair amount of time too. 

I've always been on the lookout for the perfect scent that aligns with a rainy day spent indoors and I think Village Candle have accomplished that with their Rain scent. This candle brings with it a tranquil, relaxing vibe with it's fresh scents of bergamot, lily and amber, closely resembling fallen raindrops with these light floral notes. Out of the two scents I was kindly sent to review this was probably the one most suited to my personal preferences, it would have been the scent I would go more towards purchasing for myself. The scent undeniably fills the room and really creates a comforting atmosphere in your home.
