8 Fantastically Fall Candles to Burn All Season Long
Fall is fast approaching. So it’s officially time to haul out the autumn decor. Which includes grabbing your matchbox and lighting some Fall 2021 candles.
Honestly, nothing beats the scent of bright apple or spicy pumpkin. Not to mention woody, earthy scents. Especially when the outside air’s turned crisp and the leaves have begun to change.
Picking a scented candle is similar to selecting perfume. You need to search for just the right fragrance. You know, one that suits your personality and your home’s style.
Thankfully, there are plenty of awesome Fall 2021 candles to choose from. Here are some of our favorites.
Aromatique Cinnamon Cider Cube Candle, $36 at Macy’s
For some, autumn’s all about those spiced scents. For others, it’s the bright crispness of apple. Aromatique’s Cinnamon Cider marries both. The quintessential fall candle, it combines apple and spices with a touch of citrus. Each is hand poured in Arkansas with ethically sourced containers and cotton wicks.
Bath & Body Works Crisp Morning Air 3-Wick Candle, $24.50 at Bath & Body Works
Anyone who knows candles understands that Bath & Body Works has got fall scents on lock. The iconic brand just debuted its new fall and Halloween collections and everything is so dang good. It’s almost impossible to choose a favorite, but Crisp Morning Air is up there. It smells like a chilly autumn breeze through white oak trees with hints of amber, saffron and sandalwood.
Rosy Rings Honey Tobacco Large Floral Press Candle, $35 at Rosy Rings
Speaking of nontraditional autumn scents, we’re absolutely obsessed with this honey tobacco offering. It fuses the scent of a sweet, golden drizzle with wafting pipe tobacco. It evokes a feeling of being in a huge library loaded with leather-bound books on antique bookcases. True to Rosy Rings style, the candle vessel itself is gorgeous and features real pressed flowers in the lid.
Homesick Pumpkin Picking Candle, $34 at Homesick
You didn’t think we’d get through this roundup without a true pumpkin scent, did you? Homesick's spin on this classic autumn aroma features top notes of pumpkin and nutmeg with a robust center of ginger, cinnamon and clove. The base offers a hint of sweetness via vanilla, tonka bean and sugar.
Anecdote Candles Bonfire Blaze, $26 at Anecdote Candles
You can cozy up around a fire any ol’ time, but it feels especially nice in the fall when the air’s crisp and you’ve got a warm cup of yum in your hands. This candle takes that familiar feeling and puts it in scent form. It's a blend of smokey campfire, whiskey, roasted chestnuts and tobacco leaf.
D.S. & DURGA Holy Ficus, $65 at D.S. & DURGA
Nothings says fall like fig. The brand behind our new favorite perfume relies on classic fig accord for this truly luxe candle. There’s also ginger, saffron, frankincense and cardamom.
Otherland Rattan, $36 at Otherland
For fall, we like scents that make us feel all warm inside. This candle fits the bill. It mixes sandalwood, golden amber and warm musk.
Siblings Scent No 06, $24 at Siblings
Feeling crafty? Try a DIY candle kit from Siblings. Each bag comes with 10 ounces of eco-friendly coconut blend wax, a lead-free cotton wick and a wooden wick holder. You simply supply the recycled vessel (or you can purchase one from the brand). We recommend this scent boasting notes of cardamom, sandalwood and vanilla.
