Spicy, Woodsy, and Wonderful: Autumnal Candles for Every Mood

“I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”

L. M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

Whether you’re like Anne with an ‘e’, and October is one of your favourite seasons, or whether you prefer summer sunshine to the shorter days, when the nights start drawing in, we all crave cosiness and home comforts.

We’ve written on some of those home comforts before, and you can find a few of our favourite seasonal joys here. But when it comes to conjuring up instant cosiness, our go-to is to light a stunning scented candle.

In this post, we’ve rounded up some of our Heyland & Whittle favourites. Earthy, woodsy, these British-made candles are a great way to slow down, be mindful, and pause for a moment.

We’re thrilled to kick off this collection with our brand-new Orange Spice eco-friendly candle. A new release for Autumn 2021, Orange Spice sets the scene for happy days and holidays.

Heady with citrus and spice, say hello to St. Clements with aromatic Orange and zesty Lemon. We’ve layered these gorgeous scents with festive spices, cedar, and patchouli for a candle that smells like a celebration in a glass. Looking for a little more eco-friendly inspiration?

Speaking of celebrations, if you’re the sort of soul who puts their Christmas tree up sooner rather than later, may we suggest our Nordic Pine candle?

This edition, in a glass jar, is part of our contemporary HOME collection – and, if we do say so ourselves, the fragrance is just like taking a brisk walk in a pine forest on a crisp, sunny October day.

Our HOME range is environmentally friendly, too, and make a beautiful gift for a friend or loved one – but we won’t tell if you keep it for yourself.

For those who prefer a scent that’s a little warmer but still woodsy, our Amber & Oakmoss is a sensual blend that’s earthy and mellow with an indulgent dose of Bergamot to lift your spirits – and rather wonderful for the gentlemen in your life, too.

Our sustainable soy wax is blended with quality fragrance that permeates the whole candle, ensuring you have the same intensity and quality of scent from the first burn to the last.

Poured into a delicately etched glass holder, the candle illuminates the pattern as it burns down, and arrives carefully wrapped, with gold foil details. It’s a perfect present for a really special someone.

From the woodsy to the earthy now, the Sandalwood & Oud Candle is ideal for the armchair travellers amongst us, and belongs to the Heyland & Whittle Gold Classic range. This range is an expertly crafted array of hand-poured candles in fabulous fragrances that are designed to suit every mood and every season.

Just light the wick (give it a little trim first!) and be transported to distant lands with sweet, smoky Oud, warm Sandalwood, and an unmistakable hint of Rose.

Can a fragrance be reassuring? We think so. Last, but very much not least, our Vetiver & Musk Candle, is a blend specifically created to promote a real sense of wellbeing and peace of mind. Its tin format makes this candle a perfect travel companion for making hotels smell like home, if you’re taking a trip elsewhere. 

Whichever fragrance makes you feel wonderful, dimming those overhead bulbs and lighting a few select candles is an affordable luxury that we can enjoy every day – just make sure not to leave a lit candle unattended!
