If you burn candles, what scent for this time of year?

I always love to have some candles burning, especially when it's cold outside and gets dark early.

I have a hard time picking a scent for this time of year, though. I'm looking for something warm and cozy, yet not holiday-ish. In the spring I love light, clean scents but it's too early for that for me.

What scents do you burn this time of year? My standard for January is a Warm Vanilla Yankee Candle, but just wanting to branch out.

Yankee "Cinnamon Stick". That's my after-Christmas/Winter standard.

Loving all things Disney since 1976.

DD bought a candle for her room from Wal-Mart (Better Homes, I think). Its Sugared Candy Canes. It smells soooo GOOD!! I was shocked that a Wal-Mart candle smelled so good. It was with the holiday candles but it doesn't smell too holiday at all.

After-Christmas had them 50% off so now they are all over the house!!

I am strictly a Scentsy user as they are safer (and more fragrant than candles). Any type of cookie scent or other baked good is what I use this time of year.

I love the smell of baked goods, as well. Warm banana bread, blueberry muffin, apple cobbler, etc. are often burning this time of year in my house. Also, I really like warm mocha or coffee smells. My absolute favorite for this time of year, though, is Creamy Cinnamon Vanilla by Circle E. It just makes me feel cozy

I really like cranberry frost still. It's a B&BW candle, but I find it works during the winter months. I am soooo ready for spring!

I am done with all Christmas/winter scents once I take our Christmas stuff down. Right now I am really missing warm weather so I am burning Scentsy scents that make me think of spring. I LOVE Sunkissed Citrus!!
