Our favourite scents this Autumn
autumn coast

Here at Coast Candle HQ, Autumn is our favourite season of the year. As the weather turns a little colder, it’s the perfect excuse to wrap up warm and head out for a brisk walk to enjoy those ever changing, golden autumn colours. It’s also the best time of year to curl up with a good book, a toasty mug of hot chocolate and the glow of a gorgeous, scented candle to create that autumnal vibe indoors.

We’ve chosen 7 of our favourite autumnal scents, which not only set the scene for a cosy night in, but also evoke nostalgic memories of times gone by, taking us on a trip down that colourful memory lane (also available to enjoy all year round 😉)

We hope you’ll love our scents too!

Golden Autumn Coast

Golden Autumn Coast is brimming with tantalising seasonal spices which will set your senses on fire. A warming amber base with exotic ruby red notes of pomegranate, entwined with frankincense, clove and pink pepper, it compliments an evening by the fire perfectly.

Memories of Conker collecting, looking to the sky, falling leaves, orange, red, green, gold. Wild berries, mum with her pickling pan. Running through the sea of autumn leaves. Shorter days, longer nights. Change is in the air.

Harvest Dance

Memories of the sweet smell of harvest, when long balmy summer nights are coming to an end and the sun goes down amidst the haze of the crops. The neighbouring fields of wildflowers dance peacefully in the breeze, enjoying the last days of summer before going to sleep.

A gentle combination of soft and powdery florals including heliotrope and orris, with delicious notes of fig, vanilla and tonka bean and a subtle hint of musk and spice.

Lord of the Isles

Memories of Harris Tweed Plus Fours. The Laird with a glint in his eye, the big house by the sea loch, Toffs from the south with hearts of gold laughing loudly at the Lairds jokes, off to the hills for the Stags.

Fragrance of rich warm smouldering woody embers, Black Pepper, Leather and precious woods refreshed with citrus – the aroma of affluence and luxury abound.

Local Hero

Memories of an ‘old man of the sea’, a Swedish Scottish Crofter, distinguished, respected, strong, wise, funny and trusting. On the tractor with him, tobacco and Old Spice waft past in the air. Jiggling around on the noisy machine. What fun.

The fragrance of Patchouli and Vetiver – earthy and outdoorsy aromas flit in and out of the mind.

Whisky Galore

Memories of Hot Toddies, sugar, honey, lemon – “That will make you better”, Grandpa said laughing… Dark and golden, steam rising from the glass, “Sip it gently now”, warm and comforting. Grandpa was right. All better now.

The fragrance of a fruity alcohol tipple, Lemon, Apple and a hint of Toffee with a spicy Ginger twist – uplift the nostrils with a riot of boozy pleasure. A new twist on toffee apples this Halloween!

Salmon Bothy

Memories of an old weathered leather chair, pipe smoke, cap on the back of the door, dog by the fire, cosy dark room, small bright net curtain window. Comforting space and place. Stories of sheep, shipwrecks and dry land – forever in the room.

This is a comforting woody amber fragrance with incense – magical infusions to rekindle bygone days; peaty, smoky and cosy; a strong warming hug in a candle. 

Woodland Wonders

Happy memories of days with the kids when they were little, kicking up the leaves through the woods, climbing trees and splashing through muddy puddles. Building dens with the fallen twigs on the mossy woodland floor and the golden rays of the late afternoon sun adding the last of the summer warmth as the seasons change.

The fragrance of rich woody and sweet earthy notes of vetiver and cedar, draw you into a heart of lavender and rosemary, with a dry smoky base of incense and amber.
