6 Must-Have Scents For Autumn

AHLT Autumnal Scents to inspire, ground and intrigue!

 

One of the best things about the change of seasons is that all your comforting favourites make a reappearance. Perhaps it’s the return of your much loved leather jacket as the days become cooler or getting your favourite cosy blanket back out of Summer retirement. We don’t know about you but also knowing that you’ll be able to hide a multitude of sins under that cherished collection of oversized jumpers is usually a pretty exciting prospect as you say goodbye to the Summer. 

Aside from the visual cues from our dear friend Mother Nature, such as the changing of leaves as they fall from the trees, it’s also the little things like that flavoured latte at the coffee shop that after one sip instantly makes you realise it’s finally Autumn. And let’s not forget candles. Autumn is all about your scented candles and creating a cosy home. 

We are both drawn to the mythology behind the changing of the seasons, the Pagan calendar and ritualistic side of the harvest season is steeped in mystery and magic and we love to bring a little of that into our home through tablescapes and mantle settings dedicated to Samhain. 

All Hallow’s Eve is really when our house comes into its own and much of the atmosphere we create is done so through setting the mood through weaving in a little magic through scent, space and sound. So in this first seasonal blog from A House Like This here’s a collection of our must have Autumnal scents from our Library to set the mood in your home...


FYRE - “THE SEXY MAN”

A blend of Saffron, Embers & Jasmine

WHAT’S IT SMELL LIKE?

One of our friends refuses to call FYRE by its name as it’s got that “sexy man” scent to it. In hindsight perhaps Sexy Man was a better name for this decadent, leathery scent of jasmine, saffron and embers. 

HOW WILL I FEEL? 

FYRE feels a little bit naughty and incredibly moreish. The feeling of a pair of cosy thick socks, a roaring fireside scene after a walk in the woods and your favourite leather jacket. 

MIXOLOGY TIPS 

FYRE pairs well with many of our scents with it’s rich, leathery undertones and can add a richer, dark sided mood to some of our brighter blends that only have a touch of darkness. We’d recommend fragrance layering FYRE with JASMYN, DAMSON, PERSEPHONE and WYNTER.

WYNTER - “THE FEEL GOOD ONE”

A blend of Sweet Orange, Clove & Cinnamon

WHAT’S IT SMELL LIKE?

Refreshing citrus notes of bright sweet orange and subtle spices and a heart of star anise. You’ll be reminded of mulled wine simmering on the stove and juicy oranges pierced with cloves by the fireside. 

HOW WILL I FEEL? 

Merry and bright, like it’s Christmas Eve and there is excitement in the air. WYNTER is the scent you need on a rainy day because it’s naturally such a good mood booster and gives you those feel good vibes even on the greyest of days.

MIXOLOGY TIPS 

For an uplifting, citrus twist we love pairing the peppery lime basil and mandarin CITRON scent with the subtle festive spices WYNTER possesses. Layer these scents together in a setting when you need a little mood boost. 

To set a more cosy, sleepy vibe switch out CITRON for our FYRE blend which brings out the darker notes of WYNTER, the perfect scentscape for a few kisses under the mistletoe. 

TRY THE WYNTER HOME CANDLE

HALLOWS - “THE BLACK MAGIC WOMAN”

A blend of Mugwort, Incense & Oudh

WHAT’S IT SMELL LIKE?

Smouldering incense with a hint of something wild and touch of sweet vanilla. 

HOW WILL I FEEL? 

Free of inhibitions and self assured. HALLOWS is the confidence potion we could all use from time to time. 

MIXOLOGY TIPS 

HALLOWS can be paired with many of the library’s classics to create new scent combinations. Whilst our FYRE scent can enrich the darkness HALLOWS possesses you can also play with brighter blends such as DAMSON, PEONY PARADISIA for floral and fruity scent scapes.

OBSIDIAN - “THE MUSE”

A blend of Amber, Lily & Ginger

WHAT’S IT SMELL LIKE?

Soft cashmere and hypnotic cologne with subtle shades of leather, lily and ginger. OBSIDIAN is filled with intrigue and desire. 

HOW WILL I FEEL?

OBSIDIAN is a beautiful scent to help you focus and feel creatively inspired. A perfect accompaniment for working from home. 

MIXOLOGY TIPS 

OBSIDIAN pairs exceptionally well with FYGGE and WYNTER and is part of our FOREST collection, a trio that is intended for layering. OBSIDIAN and HALLOWS are also incredible complementary and work well in living room environments.

FYGGE - “THE GROUNDING ONE”

A blend of Black Fig, Cedarwood & Tonka Bean

WHAT’S IT SMELL LIKE?

Grounding fig with delicate notes of vanilla and coconut. FYGGE is a comforting and earthy scent to ground can calm.  

HOW WILL I FEEL?

Instantly grounded and calm. We love FYGGE in a living room space and the skin care range is ideal for a quick reset and moment of peace during a busy day.

MIXOLOGY TIPS 

FYGGE belongs with its FOREST brothers and sisters, OBSIDIAN and WYNTER and though we do love pairing and layering scents in our home FYGGE is the number one that we often keep as is, layering the home candle with our reed diffuser and lathering on the gorgeous hand and body lotion for a truly immersive experience. 

TRY THE FYGGE HAND WASH & LOTION

DAMSON - “THE NIGHTCAP”

A blend of Plum, Rose & Patchouli

WHAT’S IT SMELL LIKE?

Sloe gin with rhubarb, rose and heady purple and red fruits. 

HOW WILL I FEEL?

Soothed and relaxed. DAMSON encourages a feeling of serenity.

MIXOLOGY TIPS 

Layer DAMSON with PERSEPHONE, FYRE and PEONY. PERSEPHONE will draw out the fruitier notes whereas you’ll get a darker, incense enhancement with FYRE and a burst of red roses with PEONY.
