Best Donut Scented Candles

Happy National Donut Day! Who doesn’t love donuts? And since we happen to love candles, it only makes sense that we would love donut scented candles, too! We’ve sniffed quite a few of these babies, so we thought we would present you with our list of the best candles that smell like donuts!

Pumpkin Donut Shop, Bath & Body Works

Bath & Body Works Pumpkin Donut Shop Candle
Sweet bakery air, vanilla glaze, fluffy cake donut, pumpkin spice.

Mmmm…this donut scented candle is just what the doctor ordered! Pumpkin Donut Shop is all bakery all the way, with the smell of deep fried donut wafting in the air. This candle is not too strong, so it’s a bit more tame for those who prefer mildly scented candles. Still, it’s a good one! This candle comes around seasonally, so be sure to seek it out in the Fall.


Salted Cookie Donut Candle, Kringle Candle
Between a layer of rich chocolate cookies, hints of sea salt and caramel strands is a layer of perfect vanilla cream filling.

Hands down, Kringle Candle Company wins the contest for most creative donut scented candle. Their entire Donut Collection is to die for, but Salted Cookie Donut is the tops for us. It’s just enough of a saltiness with the sweet, fried donut scent that makes it oh-so-good!


Dunkin’® Old Fashioned, Homesick

Dunkin’® Old Fashioned Candle, Homesick
Indulge in the coziness of freshly baked Old Fashioned Donuts with the sweet, but subtle scent of traditional warm spices, that wrap you in nostalgia.

For a donut scented candle that is not too sweet, the Dunkin’ Old Fashioned candle created by Homesick should fit the bill. Smell the warm, comforting scent of freshly baked donuts with just a hint of spice. This one is a little pricey, but it is worth every penny!


Donut Shop, DW Home

Donut Shop Candle, DW Home
Deliciously sweet donuts sprinkled in sugar and topped with salted caramel drizzle and crunchy caramel chunks.

If you can get your hands on this one, be sure to snatch it up. Donut Shop from DW Home is a deliciously scented fresh donut candle with lots of caramel notes. It’s a strong one, too! This candle is currently out of stock on the website, but keep your eyes peeled in local stores for some of these gems.


Wildberry Jam Donut, Bath & Body Works

Wildberry Jam Donut, Bath & Body Works
Sweet Wildberry Jam, Powdered Donut, Brown Sugar Crumble

We end with where we began, but with Bath & Body Works putting out such great bakery scented candles, it’s no surprise they winded up on our list twice! Wildberry Jam Donut is more sweet than the other candles with just a bit of that bakery, fried, doughy scent to round it on out. We’re in wildberry love!


There you have it…our picks for some of the best donut scented candles that you can buy these days. Of course, these are all big market candles…don’t sleep on the small, indie shops that carry some awesome donut scented candles, too. Maybe we’ll highlight them this time next year. Grab you a donut and a donut scented candle and enjoy the day!

Happy candle burning!
