The pumpkin has long been a popular symbol for celebrating the harvest in America ... a time to savor the bounty and beauty of nature. It's also a time to be thankful for our good fortune as we share our homes and hearths with family and friends.
It was in this spirit that the Yankee Candle Company first introduced Spiced Pumpkin candles 24 years ago. A favorite seasonal treat, its authentic, true-to-life fragrance of pumpkins baked in simmering spices of clove, nutmeg, cinnamon and sweetened with brown sugar, brings back warm, inviting autumn memories.
Today, Yankee Candle's pumpkin collection includes such yummy scents as Pumpkin Pie, Vanilla Pumpkin, and Frosted Pumpkin. But it is the original, Spiced Pumpkin, that is my personal favorite. It reminds me of Thanksgiving at my grandmother's house, the air filled with fragrance, laughter, and love. Today it's my choice for celebrating autumn traditions and building future memories with my own family.
