Welcome to Jessica’s Top Thursday. Each week, I will feature a new Top Trend, Top 10, Top List, etc. I will mention some of our favorite items, tips, ideas, recipes and more. Enjoy! To see my previous Top Thursday posts, click here.
1. Fireside by Target Home
Cedarwood, clove, ylang ylang, sandalwood… This candle is my top pick.
This is my favorite candle. You can actually find this candle at Target for $5.99 (for a large jar!) You won’t find a candle like this for that price often. The brand is called Home which is one of Target’s brands. They do not sell it online, but you can click here to see if they have it at your local store: http://www.target.com/p/Home-Scents-Fireside-15-oz-Jar-Candle/-/A-13685537
If you love the smell of fire & wood but do not have a fireplace, this candle is perfect for you. Reminds me of crisp fall nights around a campfire. It’s simply amazing and that is why it landed at #1.
If you do not have this candle locally, you can always go to Bath & Body and pick up their version of Fireside. It comes in at a close second.
2. Acorn & Fig by Slatkin & Co
A medley of fresh apricot, juicy pear and fig blended with fresh cut Birchwood and creamy sandalwood.
Highly fragranced candle exclusively developed and tested by their team of Home Fragrance experts, including the world’s best master perfumers. Made using the highest concentration of fragrance oils, an exclusive blend of vegetable wax and lead-free wicks for optimal performance.

3. Kitchen Spice by Slatkin & Co
This is one of my favorite candles… I can’t find this candle on the actual website, which leads me to believe they may be discontinuing it. You can find it in certain Bath & Body stores… However, I did find the Kitchen Spice Candle on Amazon!
4. Orange Cinnamon Clove Simmer
I posted about this a little while ago. This is probably one of the cheapest ways to make your house smell good. It’s very easy and will leave your whole house smelling wonderful.

You can purchase this candle at Bath & Body online or in store.
6. Cinnamon & Clove Buds by Slatkin & Co
