Who said you can’t have a Christmas-scented candle in summer? Who said you can’t enjoy an apple cinnamon candle in spring? We’re big believers in celebrating fall whenever your mood calls for it.
Fall is certainly the time of year to indulge in the most popular candle scents. From Christmas cookie candles to cinnamon-scented candles, there’s nothing quite like celebrating the colder seasons with a scent that screams fall.
For cozy chasers, woody scent lovers, and scented candle gift set seekers, this is the gift list (or wishlist!) for you.
We like a wild coconut sandalwood candle or amber and sandalwood candle, but you can’t beat the classic original. Sandalwood scented candles are the sophisticated, woody, velvety, incense-burning type scent that calm no matter the season. There’s a reason why sandalwood oil is nicknamed “liquid gold” and you’ll find out soon enough once you’ve inhaled this calming scent.
Warm, sensual, animalic. Amber and sandalwood candles are like soothing kindred spirits that are seductive, and earthy, but never overwhelming. Moroccan Amber leans more toward crushed spice pods than pure warm woodiness, with extra richness from the tonka bean and musk.
Balsam fir & Cedarwood
We know it’s a little early for Christmas, but if you’re torn between a luxury-scented candle and a Christmas tree-scented candle, this is it. Crisp cedarwood, rich balsam, pepper, and patchouli team up for a decadent scent that’s Christmassy yet undeniably complex and decadent.
Who can deny a cinnamon-scented candle? Cinnamon, the essence of all things fall themed and unbelievably delicious in pies, drinks, and sprinkled on pretty much everything, deserves a place of honor on any fall list.
Cinnamon pumpkin always tops the candle scents list this season, and ours is far from basic. We’ve included pepper, bergamot, amber, and even a hint of tobacco for a complex, smoky touch.
Pomegranate & Pine
Spicy, woody, sweet. Pomegranate tartness meets fresh pine for a delicious scent that’s truly unique. Don’t be intimidated by the pomegranate—it’s perfectly balanced with clove, cinnamon, and amber. While this scent might not fit any traditional scented candle set, it doesn’t need to—it stands out as a luxury candle in its own right.
The best pine scented candle, hands down. Is it boring? Absolutely not. Fir needle, balsam, forest pine, fir balsam, and musk make this candle truly the ultimate forest escape candle. Refreshing and warmingly complex, you’ll soon find yourself wandering an ancient coniferous forest with this scent.
