These are the Things We Love for Fall

HOME editor Jessica Sinichak finds local gems you’ll obsess over.


Good Aura 

Ditch the conventional fall pumpkin scents in favor of a handcrafted Aura Candle by Pittsburgh-based Tal & Bert. The sophisticated fragrance has notes of mandarin, eucalyptus and earthy cedarwood. Bonus: Once the candle is burned down, you can clean out the geode vessel it arrived in and use it as a container.

Prices range from $42 to $120
