Yankee Candle has Haunted Hollow Melt Cups and Fragrance Spheres for purchase online...as I type. They have Witches' Brew in the Melt Cup as well. Yankee put out some fall preview scents out during their Semi Annual Sale - several YouTube reviews to be watched. I have yet to make it to a store.

Let's not forget about those companies that produce, what can be considered Halloween, darker themed candles all year.

Witch City Wicks
Burke & Hare Co
Washington Wicks
SickWix
Dark Candles
Werther & Gray

I was just on their website and didn’t pull up much relating to Halloween. I’ll have to try again. Luckily I stocked up on $1 votive candles during their last sale and scored a lot of Halloween & autumn scents.

Yay, the Fall Fragrance Thread! Thanks for the first heads up for Yankee starting to get theirs in!

My Dollar Tree just got in some Fall candles. I got a cute little one that has Fall leaves around the jar and smells lovely. There were several Fall scented ones. Two scents were in the leaf decorated jars and two in plain jars.

So I caved and just added 8 melt cups to my current YC Witches Brew stash (currently standing at 9 medium Witches Brew/Purchouli jar candles, 4 large and now about 14 melt cups). Every year I panic that they will discontinue that scent because, as you may or may not remember, I have a strong emotional attachment to it! LOL Just one whiff makes me happy and conjures that immediate Halloween feeling. :)

You would think yc wouldn't ever discontinue witches brew but they do things that make no sense sometimes. Like no halloween tealights last year. I purchased nothing last year bc they didn't bring back my favorite scent haunted hollow. I found some jars online and bought them but im basically hoarding it. I can't bear to burn any bc their irreplaceable. I hope they bring back Halloween this year. Last year was a disaster.

I’m burning pumpkin buttercream (or something like that) right now. I’m starting my three day weekend with the back door open, enjoying the unusually cool morning. This scent seems to be attracting flies though. 🤔 I’ve already had to pull three of them out of the melted votive wax. Who knew?

Witches Brew is absolutely my favorite Halloween candle. Just like Famous Pumpkin said, one smell immediately reminds me of Halloween. I have one jar left from last year, and have been looking on Ebay for more. I suppose I can wait 2 more months until Yankee has its Halloween Preview Weekend. I hope they never discontinue this scent. I would be heartbroken.

You should check out Homegoods:Marshall’s/TJ Max for Purchouli. I believe it’s the same scent as Witches Brew that they just label differently. I have a few of those and they smell the same.

I'm anticipating the upcoming Halloween collections!

Looking back through my calendar from last year...

07/23/18 - Colonial Candle announced their Cobweb Collection
08/03/18 - Witch City Wicks Halloween collection online for purchase - they sold out in less than an hour (they sell out and restock several times before the season is over)
08/13/18 - Burke & Hare debuted their Halloween collection - they sell out and restock
08/18/19 - Yankee Candle slyly pulled Black Magic out of the vault and put it on sale (I stocked up on those) - I'm hoping YC has several hundred cases of Haunted Hollow lurking a dark corner of a warehouse...
08/25/18 - Yankee Candle Halloween preview party

There are, once again, rumors that the Kringle Candle Company will be releasing a Halloween line with new scents as well as discontinued favorites. Last year they didn't follow through; hoping they knock it out the park this year. Yankee is leaving the Halloween door wide open for another company to step in... Just saying...

I have 3 of Kringle's Witches' Cauldron candles from 2012 and only burned one for a couple of hours.
I mostly crouch down in a dark corner of my closet and huff.

Think I might need a little extra income to support this Halloween candle hoarding habit.

I have heard that Kringle's Witches' Cauldron candle is amazing. You are lucky to have 3 of them. I have ordered from Witch City Wicks because I love their Halloween scents. They do, although, sell out really fast. But, as you said, they restock several times during the Halloween season. I agree with you about Yankee Candle. Last year was kind of a bust as far as Halloween. I was not impressed with the Halloween Preview Weekend and what they had to offer. I hope they do better this year. I have to say that I always buy YC's Witche's Brew candles. The smell immediately makes me think "Halloween".

If kringle makes candy corn ill get it. I have 1 each of their old halloween line except candy corn. I know everyone raves about kringle witches cauldron. It seems to be a lot of people's #1 halloween candle. I really hate it. It smells like a pus filled wound/ hospital room to me.

I have a tumbler left of Yankee's Haunted Hollow that I don't want to burn for fear that they'll never bring it back. That candle is so good mixed with other scents, and really adds a spooky Halloween note to anything you burn with it. Plus the tumbler had the really neat packaging with the writing on the inside that "appeared" as you burned the candle down. Loved that idea - so clever. I also really loved Yankee's Black Magic candle from a year or two back. Really wish they would bring that back. Can't wait to see the new Halloween line up this year.
