For a candle lover, Fall is one of the best and favorite seasons to burn candles. Hot weather is officially behind us with cool and crisp air on the horizon. With cooler weather comes all those warm and spicy scents we all love to smell in our home… fresh from the oven pumpkin pies and endless pumpkin blends – spicy cinnamons, all those warm and cozy bakery scents. And let’s not forget apple! Apple is a favorite fruit to blend with spices making it a perfect and staple fall scent. The variations are endless and so inviting.
Below is a list of candles and fragrances we at Candlefind love and highly recommend. These recommendations come from the Editor’s as well as faithful Candlefind readers and forum members.
#1 Pumpkin Pie from Pure Integrity Candles
This candle is the best Pumpkin Pie candle on the planet, hands down! It smells exactly like a freshly baked Pumpkin Pie. You can smell every ingredient from the crust, the pumpkin filling, the cinnamon and the nutmeg. It’s mouthwatering and so strong… one candle will fragrance your entire home. I didn’t believe it till I tried one for myself. It is perfect and we highly recommend this one if you’ve been searching for an authentic Pumpkin Pie scented candle. This candle IS Pumpkin Pie!
#2 Leaves from White Barn Candles
