Fall is officially here! Can you smell it in the air? The cool crisp breezes and glorious sunsets… and don’t forget pumpkins and all those yummy spicy aromas that go along with it!

I love Fall aromas and pumpkin scents are definitely at the top of that list. Starting early September is when you start seeing all the candle companies, small and large, switch gears and begin to stock all their Fall candles. Straight up pumpkin pie is my favorite but with all the new pumpkin blends on the market, it’s becoming harder to choose. I love them all!

So, to help me along – and you – I put a list together of pumpkin scents I plan on trying this season. Some are scents I’ve tried and love, others are new to me and candles I can’t wait to experience.

Happy pumpkin season!!

Pumpkin Pie from Pure Integrity

Pumpkin Pie

If you’re searching for a true and mouthwatering pumpkin pie that smells beyond realistic, this is the candle for you! It smells so realistic, it’s hard telling the real deal from the candle itself. You can smell every ingredient down to the nutmeg and boy is this candle a room filler. HIGHLY recommend this one to all you pumpkin pie lovers!

Pumpkin Pecan Waffles from White Barn

Best pumpkin pie candle

Okay, this isn’t a classic pumpkin pie scent but it’s still the bomb and a must try if you love sweet bakery pumpkin scents. It’s a staple in my home and a fragrance I tend to burn all year long. Yeah, I love it THAT much! White Barn has their version and so does the classic from Bath & Body Works. They’re likely the same.

Frosted Pumpkin Cake from Goose Creek came highly recommended by Julia as well so I in our best pumpkin list it goes. What a cute pumpkin shaped candle with it’s pure white wax. Just like buttercream frosting. YUM!! Frosted Pumpkin Cake is described as… Warm vanilla cake spiced with local grown pumpkin.

Pumpkin Latte from Chesapeake Bay Candles

Best pumpkin candles

As soon as I read the scent description for Pumpkin Latte, I had to add it to this list. YUM!!!!

Relax by the crackling fire and enjoy a simmering pumpkin latte topped with brown sugar, maple and creamy vanilla. The aroma of praline, pecans, and pumpkin frosting fills the room as we watch the leaves slowly fall from trees throughout the crisp autumn afternoon.

Oh yes! I’ll take five please!! It has a  bit of everything… fall, pumpkin and bakery all combined. Mmm!!

Rich, velvety pumpkin, acorn and delicate squash slow roasted with melted sweet cream butter and a dash of rosemary and fleur de sel. 

The moment I read the scent description, I was sold. Slow roasted squash with sweet cream butter ? YUM!! Not only does the scent sound unique and amazing, the vessel itself is gorgeous. This is definitely a pumpkin candle I will for sure be purchasing.
