When it comes to fall, we all have a favorite flavor that comes to mind. Whether it’s maple, pumpkin, walnut – whatever! And with all of those incredible flavors come comforting scents, like those that we get from candles.

We recently got our hands on the Bath & Body Works Pumpkin Pecan Waffle candle, and we can’t believe it. It has definitely become a favorite fresh-baked scent in our office as we ease our way into fall. And it certainly came just in time – as we’re celebrating Waffle Week this week!

But that’s not the only fragrance they are debuting this year. We’re loving the entire We Love Fall line at Bath & Body Works! With Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin, Banana Nutmeg Bread Pudding, Farmstand Apple, and so many more, there’s definitely a favorite fall scent for everyone. And with so many different pumpkin combinations, you’re sure to be ready to celebrate Pumpkin Week coming up soon!

But out of all of those fragrances, after taking a trip to smell them all at our local Bath & Body Works, we have fallen most in love with the Pumpkin Pecan Waffle. Good thing they offer soap, bubble bath, hand cream, and so much more in that scent right?? You’ll definitely want to head to your local Bath & Body Works to check out all of these great scents and decide on your fall fave!

Fall has always been a time for transition and a time to remember your childhood. Fall means Halloween, Thanksgiving, and it also means Christmas is not too far away! And with all of these holidays comes comfort baking. We recently got in the kitchen to create a recipe that embodies this new, fantastic scent from Bath & Body Works, and we couldn’t be more excited.

There’s nothing like a warm, delicate waffle drizzled with maple syrup to start your day. But what about adding it to dessert? This recipe brings together all of our favorite flavors of fall into one perfect little bite. Top your cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, drizzle them with pecan maple syrup, and add a bit of crunch by using a waffle inspired garnish. Celebrate with these cupcakes during brunch or serve them for dessert as we welcome fall!

      My favorite part about fall, aside from the seasonal flavors, smells etc. Is that everyone seems to be a bit nicer to each-other, the holiday season is approaching and people get into that giving spirit! My favorite time of year :)

      My absolute favourite thing about fall (Autumn in Aus.) are the simplest pleasures. The outlandish feeling I get when I awake on the morning of Autumn and I can feel the change in the weather. The crispness of the air, the slight chill, the brighter colouring of the leaves on trees and the sunsets that scream a change in the season. In Australia we don’t favour pumpkins (although they make a lovely soup in the cold!) but more so the produce from markets that have come into season, the hard work raking the leaves and then jumping in them and being able to enjoy the winter sports that entail. The one thing though that I absolutely adore about Autumn is the “colourful sunset” of trees in my street. Pleasant to wake to every morning and to admire in the evening. (Apologies for the length but I do adore my seasons!!)

      Autumn is my favorite season. I love the scents of pumpkin and apples, be it candles or in pies. It is so fun to visit the pumpkin patches with the family. The colors are always so magnificent. I love raking up big piles of leaves for the kids and pets to jump in and play.

      I’ve got to say Fall is my favorite season of all!!

      My favorite pie(yes you guessed it, pumpkin pie!!). I love the cool rainy weather, cozy blankets, and orange-brown leaves all around. November is also “Movember” aka No shave November(where my hubbys beard looks awesome). Also who doesn’t like Halloween oreos!? I know I do!!.

      Finding a perfect mini pumpkin just to decorate it and put it in my room(pumpkin patch time!!). I love love love all the dessert scented candles, lotions, bath bombs, air fresheners(oh I can go on).

      Pumpkin flavored everything!! yoga pants and Ugg boots. I see one of my favorite colors all over, Orange! I think orange is misunderstood sometimes, Give it a chance people!! XD Fall is when you get lots of inspiration on recipes and crafts. AH! I just love that stuff.

      There’s just not enough words to express why Fall is the best season but there you have mine :)
