Gourmand + Spice Scents–Skylar Fall Cashmere Candle
With notes of roasted almond, cinnamon bark, and spiced ginger, this candle epitomizes the feeling you get when you put on a cozy cashmere sweater on a crisp autumn day. Skylar is known for its sustainable and vegan ingredients, and that’s exactly what you’ll get with this candle made from sustainable coconut wax.
Capri Blue Pumpkin Clove Medium–Glass Jar Candle
This Mississippi-based candle company is best known for its iconic Volcano scent, but you’ll find that its seasonal scents are just as worthy of praise. Pumpkins are a quintessential part of fall, and this candle will ensure you’ll have had your fix by the end of the season. With a creamy, buttery pumpkin scent and a hint of orange zest, the Pumpkin Clove scent will leave your home smelling like a pumpkin patch–we can’t think of anything more fitting for fall.
WoodWick Pumpkin Butter Medium–Hourglass Candle
If you’re looking for a nostalgic aromatic experience in a fall candle, this Pumpkin Butter candle is here to help. With a mixture of vanilla, pumpkin, and warm spices, you’ll feel as though you’re in the middle of a pumpkin patch from the comfort of your living room, and we think that sounds pretty nice. Plus, the wood wick gives the illusion of a crackling fire, even when it’s too hot to light one.
Bath & Body Works Leaves 3–Wick Candle
What’s better than a single-wick candle? A three-wick candle. Bath & Body Works understood that when making this spicy yet fruity creation. Although this candle’s name is Leaves, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by its crisp red apple, golden nectar, and warm clove notes. “This is my go-to fall candle—I could honestly burn it all season long and be perfectly content,” says Fincher. “To me, the crisp apple and warm clove notes are quintessentially fall.” And, it’s infused with natural essential oils for an elevated fragrance experience.
Mason Louis Marie–No.04 Bois de Balincourt Candle
“I’m not big on typical pumpkin/harvest fall scents, so Maison Louis Marie’s No.04 Bois de Balincourt is my go-to,” says Betsy Cribb Watson, Southern Living senior homes and features editor. “It’s woodsy and welcoming with subtle spice notes that feel just right for the season.” This fall option from Mason Louis Marie is a more romantic pick with sandalwood as one of its more prominent notes. You’ll also notice some earthy undertones which complement the sandalwood scent.
Autumn Aromas: Captivating Fragrances

We’ll explore a variety of captivating fragrances that embody the essence of the season, from spicy cinnamon and aromatic pumpkin spice to crisp apple and earthy cedarwood.

Understanding these benefits will not only help you make an informed choice, but also allow you to enjoy the comforting glow of candles without any concerns about air quality or environmental impact.
Cozy and Beautiful Containers: Enhancing Your Home Décor

Tips for Choosing the Right Fall Candle
- “Fall is the perfect time to bring warm scents into the home that speak to coziness and warmth,” says Joyce Barnes, chief operating officer of fragrance and beauty company TOCCA. “It’s a chance to play with stronger, deeper scents that fill up the home and that have a longer lasting scent to linger. You can play with warm woods, spices, and gourmand notes like vanilla or pumpkin.”
- You’ll notice a plethora of different wax types while shopping for candles, each of which have pros and cons. According to fragrance specialist Alex Hall of Born of Botanics, “the benefits of soy waxes are that they are more eco-friendly, have a clean burn with minimal soot, good scent throw, and a longer burn time. However, they may be more expensive.” On the other hand, paraffin waxes are derived from petroleum which is a non-renewable resource and may emit some pollutants into the air, explains Hall. However, paraffin wax is typically more affordable.
- When it comes to burn time, “it depends on the size of the candle,” explains Bee Shapiro, founder of fragrance company Ellis Brooklyn. “A quality 6.5-ounce candle can last you 40-50 hours depending on how the burn started. However, it is important to note that the first burn is the most important and the burn should be at least an hour long to prevent any tunneling.” If you’re going to invest in a fall candle and plan on lighting it frequently, we’d recommend opting for those with a longer approximate burn time (these tend to be bigger candles), so that way you get your money’s worth.
