As the air and leaves started to change, officially announcing the start of fall, I immediately took out my blankets and cozy loungewear from storage. 'Tis the season to embrace the hygge lifestyle and surround yourself with things that bring you warmth. This means taking your laptop to the bedroom, lighting an afternoon candle, or brewing tea throughout the day, slippers on.

My apartment now constantly bursts with the calming notes of a Homesick candle. Since discovering the brand two months ago, I have ordered a few of their themed options, but one of my favorites as of late is the Book Club Candle ($34). It's partly because it conjures up images of me wrapped in a blanket with my favorite book and partly because it makes my space feel personal and lived-in.

I especially like to use it on rainy days. With a blend of orange, nutmeg, cinnamon, sandalwood, vanilla, balsam, and amber, it instantly sets the mood for a cozy time at home. I'm drawn to the warm glow of the flame. It burns slowly and can last for up to 80 hours. I also appreciate that it's nontoxic and free of harmful chemicals, which you can immediately notice in the light quality of the scent.

A good candle is like your favorite coffee: the aroma fills you with joy; it's reliable and designed to be savored slowly. As many of us prepare for a potential winter in quarantine, now is the time to invest in some great-smelling candles. I've included some excellent options to make your time at home that much more enjoyable.
