Welcome, September! If we're friends or you follow me on IG, you know that I am a fall girl through and through. I basically have to drag myself through summer. And yes, I am also one of those people who every year goes all out to decorate my living room in time for the cozy season. Orange leaf garlands, pumpkin-shaped pillows, fall home fragrance — I want it all. Some might say I go a little OTT, but I really don't care. It makes me happy and only does harm to my bank account. 

During my yearly fall overhaul, one thing I never forget is my apartment's scent. I always aim to imitate the way it looks through candles and diffusers. In summer, I light all of my fresh, floral, and fruity candles. Then come early September, I dig out my woody, warm, vanilla fragrances in time to snuggle up and watch a Hocus Pocus marathon. Yes, I am obsessed with home fragrance so when I say that today is the day to invest in some fall scents for the colder months, listen up.

I've been looking for the best Labor Day sales live today, and while doing my shopping I stumbled upon a bunch of candle and reed diffuser sales. Most people will start to decorate for fall next week, so this is your last chance if you're on a budget. Here's where to do your shopping — and which candles to buy this fall if you're a little lost...
