We recently asked our lovely followers over on Instagram what their favourite thing about autumn was, one of the most popular answers was rich autumnal candles and scents. So what better way to give the people what they want than to round up our favourite autumn scented candles? 

The Science Behind the Smells

By now it’s uncommon for a household to be candle-less, they have become and integral part of our household, a part of the ‘furniture’ so to speak. But why is it that we love adding scents to our home so much? Well, think no further, we have the answer.
Have you ever walked past a bakery and been instantly taken back to a past memory, or smelt a certain perfume and been reminded of a person or time in your life? This is because scents bypass the area in the brain called the thalamus who’s job is to relay motor and sensory signals and go straight to the brains ‘smell centre’, aka the olfactory bulb. They then pass to a part of the brain called the amygdala, the place where our emotions are given meaning, remembered and attached to associations, immediately triggering detailed memories and intense emotions. Cool huh?
 
Let’s begin..
