Halloween Week-Scents

This is more of a question I'm posing to you. What sort of smells make you think of Halloween/Samhain?

For me? Well, I don't like the "fall" scents. They are too heavy and they make me feel gross. So, things like pumpkin, or maple are out of the question. For Halloween/Samhain, I like the smell of apple. It's still light and fruity which I like, but also with some of the more autumnal elements.

Probably the smell of the fall air. Heavy with wet leaves. Apples and caramel are biggies too.

Pumpkin pie, mulled cider, bonfires, candles burning in a jack o'lantern, and a certain fall-air smell that I can't pin down or describe, but know it when I encounter it.

Definitely spices for me. Like cinnamon, and especially nutmeg. There's also the distinctive outside fall smell of leaves, but there's no way to get that inside. It just wouldn't work.
