Yep, fall is officially here candle lovers, and we’ve got some good seasonal candles to recommend this year. It’s hard to believe we’ve made it this far into 2022…where does the time go? While things have not yet returned to “normal,” we can still hopefully cozy up in the comforts of our homes with some warm, inviting fragrances. That’s why we’re coming back yet again with a round-up of some of the best fall candles you can buy.
This Pumpkin Pie candle from Pure Integrity always seems to make the cut. This candle may look very simple in design but trust us when we say it will be the last Pumpkin Pie scent you will ever purchase. Ok…maybe that’s a bit melodramatic, but it’s really, really good. Trust. If you’re after an authentic pumpkin pie scent, complete with pumpkin puree, crust, spices, and whipped cream, this is your go-to candle. And it’s 100% soy. LOVE!!
Cornbread & Honey
We think 1803 has some of the BEST foodie scents around. That holds true with this yummy, delicious fall candle, Cornbread & Honey. This scent is super heavy and comforting…very authentic. If you love candles that smell like food, go for this one for sure.
Moving away from the foodie scents, we come upon this gem from the affordable luxury candle brand, Voluspa. They have a number of great fall scents, but we think Baltic Amber rises to the top. It’s warm…it’s comforting…and the candle vessel is stunning. This candle screams fall. What more could you want?
Amber Black Vanilla
LAFCO makes some beautifully affordable luxury candles, including this Amber Black Vanilla gem. This is not your average vanilla scented candle. The warmth of smooth vanilla is balanced with just the right amount of brown sugar sweetness to make this fragrance cozy and inviting. Light this candle and snuggle in for the night with a good book or two!
Sure…we know that Pumpkin Chai from NEST Fragrances might be a little cliché. After all, it is on just about every list of best fall candles you can find. But it’s there for a reason, guys. This candle is FABULOUS and it seems to last forever. This is not a foodie pumpkin scent, but more of a warm, spicy scent. It’s hard to describe…just know that it’s all about fall, and it’s fantastic.
The candleberry Candle Co.
Hot Maple Toddy
Candleberry’s Hot Maple Toddy is good anytime of the year, but the fall seems to be when we love it the most. It is warm and cozy with just the right amount of sweetness. This one is quite fragrant and throws really well…perfect for those evenings by the fire!
Illume candles are consistently high quality and come in such a wide array of beautiful vessels. We are partial to this tin style, though, for the scent Blackberry Absinthe. This scent is dark and mysterious, with just the right amount of sweetness from the blackberries and orange. A very complex scent that should carry you from fall to winter with pure delight.
The name says it all. Wax Buffalo has an amazing fall candle lineup, but we’re partial to this warm, cozy fragrance. Autumn is full of warmth and spices with just the right amount of earthiness and crunchy fall leaves to make you want to curl up by the fire.
Soap & Paper Factory
Floral fans, have no fear. While thinking of the best fall candles you generally don’t consider florals, there are still plenty in this category that would fit the bill. For instance, the lovely Vanilla Fleur from Soap & Paper Factory. This scent is warm and sensual, with just enough of the floral orchid notes shining through to give it a bit of a fall twist. It’s soothing and fabulous.
Redwoods & Amber
Paddywax has a number of great candles, but their Vista line makes us swoon. The vessels are gorgeous and the scents? Divine! Take Redwoods & Amber, for instance. This is the perfect fall scented candle, as it includes some warm spices, bright citrusy notes, earthy woodsiness, and even hints of leather. Talk about a scent explosion…in a good way!
We end our list with one of our favorite candles of all-time…not just for the fall! Heirlūm Pumpkin from Thymes is rich and pumpkin-y sweet without being cloying. It’s a mouthwatering scent that fills the air and makes our homes all warm and cozy. While they release this scent in a number of different vessels, it’s this centerpiece one that has stolen our hearts.
And that, our candle loving friends, completes our list of 11 best fall scented candles for 2022. We chose a variety of styles and prices to fit all budgets and tastes. We love them all and we hope you find a new one (or two…or three) to enjoy!
