Autumn vibes and our favourite Autumnal candles

Finally the best season, aka autumn, is upon us. Don’t get me wrong, as the skies darken earlier each evening, I’ve been feeling the post-summer blues as much as anyone...

And of course this year, we're all particularly nostalgic as we move towards October. I get it. There's always a melancholy vibe at the end of summer, but in reality Autumn is where the magic happens... Did I mention I'm an October baby?

Of course, there's something to savour in the outdoors all year round but instead of hit and miss Irish summer weather with its endless BBQ's, you can put the lawnmower away; instead, Autumn invites you to bask in the glow of candlelight (it’s now *officially* candle season), stay warm and cosy by the fire as you binge on Netflix with no judgement or guilt.

Early misty mornings; fields and farms decorated with dewy delicate spider webs. The annual harvest time in the fields. Leaves, conkers, mushrooms, ivy, rosehips and blackberries. A quiet beach to yourself for a long walk. The smell of bonfires and tendrils of smoke hanging in the crisp air.

So, as we settle into darker cold nights here a few of our favourite FieldDay fragrances for cosy candle Autumnal vibes.

 Folk Collection - Gather Candle

Notes of smokey fireside and leather.

Apothecary Collection - Ivy Candle 

Made with essential oils of Ivy, rose and sloe.

Jam Jar - Rosehip Candle 

Fruity mellow red berries and crushed leaves.

Jam Jar - Moss Candle

Earthy and rich notes with notes of green and woody fig.

And for those who just can’t let go of summer yet, hold on a while longer with Classic Collection Meadow with notes of crushed grass hay and clover.

Stay warm and safe everyone, and don't forget there's free shipping on all orders over £50/€50...

I thought I'd take this opportunity to share my favourite lockdown podcasts with you on this blog post. It's been a strange time at HQ without the buzz of staff, the phone ringing and the coming and going of deliveries and customers, but it's also been a time of quietness and a chance to reflect. Podcasts have been welcome lockdown company in the factory so here are some that you might like to check out too... (more…)
