Pumpkin spice evokes a feeling of warmth, coziness and a little bit of magic, too. We found nine items from local stores that channel the season perfectly, or pair impeccably with our favorite fall scent.
Dried Fall Harvest Bouquet – Yellow

A beautiful (and everlasting) bouquet, Chalet’s mix of harvest colors and textures will help usher the season into your home. You can also add some Natural Pumpkins and Dried Milo Berry to really spice things up.

Is there anything better than a pumpkin spice candle burning in October? Chicago Candle Co.’s Buttered Rum version really stands apart from other basic pumpkin candles, with its creamy pumpkin base and intoxicating hints of rum. The candles are made in upcycled wine bottles, and hand cut and poured in Chicago.
