The weather is getting cooler, days are shorter and mornings are darker which means Autumn is well under-way. With British summertime feeling more and more like a distant memory, it’s finally time to break out your dressing gown and cosy up with a cup of tea and one of your favourite Autumn fragrances.

What better way is there to embrace the upcoming festive months than inviting the scents of the season straight into your home with our natural soy candles and reed diffusers. All of our candles here at Northumbrian Candleworks are made using soy wax, which is not only better for the environment but has excellent fragrance-holding qualities and is considered a cleaner burn than paraffin waxes. This makes our soy candles the perfect treat for your home this season!

This week, we’ve picked six of our favourite Autumn scents to share with you. Why not curl up with a book and your fluffy slippers and treat yourself to some down-time with one of our warming, seasonal fragrances.
