Scent is a pretty powerful thing: It can take you back to an exact moment in time and totally influence your mood. It’s also the easiest way to usher in a new season. Now that fall has officially arrived, there’s no better time to scoop up an autumn-inspired candle or two or three…
And while you can never go wrong with pumpkin spice, it’s not the only aroma that makes you want to put on a big cozy sweater and snuggle up by the fire. Here are 11 fall candles that will give you all the warm and fuzzy feels.
If you can’t get enough of the smell of a crackling fire, then you need Feu de Bois (aka French for "wood fire") in your home. It’s woody, smoky scent will have you feeling like you’re in front of log-burning blaze — no fireplace required.
No one knows pumpkin candles better than Bath & Body Works -- in fact, they offer over 50 different variations of the sweet and spicy scent. However, there’s something about their Pumpkin Pecan Waffle candle that’s just so darn good. It’s everything you love about waking up on a crisp fall morning, thanks to its blend of maple syrup, golden waffles, brown sugar, and pumpkin spice. Anyone else thinking about brunch?
With notes of tobacco leaves and suede, you might assume this candle would make your living room smell like a bottle of cologne exploded. But its masculine aroma is accented by peach blossom to create a warm, yet inviting fragrance. Think your favorite flannel shirt. Its wick is made of wood, too, which is designed to produce a soothing, crackling sound as it burns.
For pumpkin purists, you really can’t go wrong with Nest’s Pumpkin Chai. It strikes just the right balance between pumpkin and spice, with a fresh touch of ginger. Plus, it has a hand soap and a diffuser to match, so you can fill your entire home with its autumnal aroma.
Looking forward to the first snow of the season or your first family ski trip? If so, meet the candle of your dreams. Even though it smells more like holidays, with pine needles, silver spruce, and spiced balsam, it will refresh your home for fall. Plus, its abstract container adds a rustic touch.
This is the scent equivalent of warm apple pie. Its welcoming notes of cinnamon and apple will have you dreaming of fall vacation in the countryside.
“Koto” which is Finnish for “home” couldn’t be a more appropriate name. The mix of Baltic amber, mandarin, and vanilla oozes coziness, making it ideal if you’re still all about that Hygge lifestyle. And honestly, who isn't come fall?
Nothing screams fall like a hot mug of apple cider, but this candle comes pretty close. The fresh apple scent also has notes of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, sandalwood, tonka bean, and vanilla for a decadent finish.
Beyond its chic packaging that makes a statement-making centerpiece, this woodsy scent warms up your entire house. Its duo of lavender or oud is accented with warm tonka bean and cedarwood.
Spice up your life with this sultry combination of crushed cardamom, ginger, black tea leaves, moro orange, and pink pepper. Strong and sultry yet not at all overwhelming, it sets the mood at night.
