best {cozy} fall candles

from a self-proclaimed candle connoisseur ;)

/// Confession:

I'm one of those people who would have these candles lit year round if I didn't share a home with a man who most certainly does not want the house to smell like these candles year round. Ahaha! I haven't totttalllly given up on converting him, but five years in, I'm pretty certain I'm going to remain the only holiday obsessed adult in our house. Knowing this, I milk this time of year for all its worth. Candles. Every. Night. I know. Wild. ;) 

SO - on to some of my faves! I have some serious criteria when it comes to the babies. First, I don't want anything too expensive. You are literally burning your money away. Amirite?! So yes, I want them to be high quality (a clean burn that lasts!), but not the same price as a bomb bottle of champagne. Although, then you're just drinking your money away, so that's not much better, but you get my point. No 'splurging' on candles. Next criteria.. throw! I want someone to walk in the front door and say 'oohh.. it smells so good in here!' even when the candle's in the kitchen. That's not too much to ask, right? Third up.. it can't give me a headache. I am very sensitive to smells, so I will have a headache in five minutes flat if something too strong is happening. And last- it's got to make me feel something when I smell it. That cozy, homey, 'I can't wait for the weather to turn' kind of feeling. Because if it makes me feel like that, chances are it will make my crew feel like that, and that is #goals. So apparently I'm super high maintenance and demanding when it comes to candles. You learn something new every day! Ha! Take a peak below to see which ones passed my test. Are any of your faves on here? Comment below if there are any I must try!
