Yankee Candle have come out with a new autumnal range, all about cosy campfire smells, and we’re obsessed!

Now that summer has come and gone, we seriously can’t wait to get cosy in front of the fire, with our fluffy socks and warm jammies on, sipping giant cups of hot chocolate. We love when the leaves turn colour, and there’s a crispness to the air that allows us to don our comfy knitted jumpers and stylish winter boots. 

Not forgetting that signature smokey bonfire smell which instantly takes us back, reminding us of every little detail about the season which we know and love.

That’s why we couldn’t be more excited to hear that the famous candle brand, Yankee Candle, have brought out their own autumn collection, centered around that classic campfire aroma. 

The first scent is called Warm and Cosy. If the name itself isn’t enough of a selling point, then perhaps the combination of cedarwood, cashmere, and eucalyptus will convince you to give this scent a whirl.

The next candle is A Night Under The Stars, coloured a deep midnight blue. If you were to give this scent a sniff you would be entranced by the woody, spicy fragrance which sparkles with a constellation of rose, leather and driftwood notes. 

The third candle available in the collection is called Crisp Campfire Apples — basically autumn in a jar, right? This scent of freshly picked apples cooking over the fire in the crisp night air is joined by middle notes of cinnamon stick and oak leaves.

The last candle in the autumn campfire range is called Pecan Pie Bites. This sweet and spicy scent combines the fragrance of cinnamon leaf, burnt sugar and raw honey with notes of white hazelnut, pecan and dark chocolate — ideal for the sweeter fragrance fan in your life.

All of these candles are available on amazon, priced at £23.99 for a large candle with up to 150 hours of burning time.

We for one, can’t wait to stock up and enjoy that blissful campfire smell all year long.



Forget fresh linen and vanilla scents, the time has come for a scented candle that makes your home smell like a greasy takeaway.

Have you ever thought, "I really wish I had a fried chicken-scented candle right now?"

Realistically you probably haven't, but just in case you have, KFC is making all your fried food scented dreams come true.

“What better way to light up your nights than with a limited edition KFC Scented Candle?" questions the KFC New Zealand Instagram page. We can think of a few.

The New Zealand chain is holding a #KFCAdventCalendar contest on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram that offers the chance to win all kinds of KFC merchandise, including the candles.

Entrants are encouraged to make suggestions for more KFC themed gifts, and chicken-scented lip gloss, body lotion and knitted drumstick mittens featured among the suggestions.

Only 25 of the scented candles are up for grabs, so if you want one of these monstrosities then get entering. 



There’s nothing like a new candle to help a home make the reluctant transition from Summer to Autumn/Winter.

But while the darker evenings already have us craving rhubarb and blackberry-type scents, we can’t say we’ve ever wished our rooms smelled like laptops.

A South Carolinian Apple accessory store is selling “New Mac” scented candles to help people get their favourite computer smell without actually having to invest in another MacBook.

As random they are, the unique candles – which contain hints of mint, peach, basil, lavender, mandarin and sage – have been a huge hit with Twelve South’s customers, with the first batch of New Mac scents selling out in just one day.

According to the store’s website, the $24 soy wax candles will be back in stock later this month.
