Halloween Candle Shopping Guide

We've rounded up the ultimate list for your Halloween candle shopping this season.

Candlefind Halloween Candle Shopping Guide

It’s that time of year when we get pretty giddy about things that go bump in the night. Halloween has to be one of our favorite times of the year, as there are SO many creative chandlers out there with a ton of great spooky options to light your way. We’ve rounded up some of our favorites in this ultimate Halloween candle shopping guide. Buckle up and get your credit cards ready to go, go, go!

Large Retail Halloween Candles

It’s no surprise that some of the biggest names in the candle industry capitalize on the spirit of Halloween. These companies tend to offer their Halloween candles seasonally, so if you’re interested in a particular scent, we recommend you stock up! We list our faves for mass produced Halloween candles below:

Large Retail Halloween Candles

Bath & Body Works

Candlefind Halloween Candle Shopping Guide B&BW

It’s no surprise that Bath & Body Works goes all in for Halloween, with a number of lighthearted spooky candles for your burning pleasure. The labels are often to die for (sorry…we couldn’t resist), and the scents are out-of-this-world good. Just don’t expect these candles to last too long. The 3-wicks (which are our favorites) have a pretty quick burn time, but they pump out a lot of scent.

Some of our past favorites include Vampire Blood, Ghoul Friend, Haunted Nights, and Wicked Apple. This year they have Pumpkin Carving, Ghoul Friend, and Vampire Blood for starters!

Colonial Candle

Colonial Candle has a Haunted Collection featuring the scents Spooky Woods (a toasted marshmallow scent), Zombie Attack (vetiver, sandalwood, & bergamot), or Grave Dust (black tea with paprika and cedarwood – wonderful!). The labels are very decorative and should fit into any Halloween candlescape you might have going. Aside from the scented options, Colonial Candle is a great place to get orange and black taper or tealight candles to help dress up your Halloween decor.

Large Retail Halloween Candles

Goose Creek Candles

You can always count on Goose Creek to come out with something fun and new. A number of their scents see little daylight, so if you see something you love, we recommend snapping it up. Check out Halloween Party, Happy Halloween, and Trick or Treat for some of the staples. Newer fragrances include Goosebump Cupcake, Marshmallow Monsters, and Howling Winds. Don’t sleep on their Disney Collection of Hocus Pocus candles!

Large Retail Halloween Candles

Yankee Candle

We’re including Yankee Candle in our Halloween candle shopping guide because you can find these candles just about anywhere, or shop online to your heart’s content. They will definitely bring out Halloween specific candles close to the holiday, but you can always purchase scents such as Enchanted Moon or Crisp Fall Night. These are perfect for Halloween!

Fandom Halloween Candles

If you’re into things like Harry Potter or Twilight, you’ll find some really good Halloween candle options for your home. There are a couple of companies we really love that have plenty of these scents all year ’round, so you can go back for more anytime you want!

Fandom Halloween Candles

Bubble And Geek

If you’ve got a fandom crush, then you’ve got to shop Bubble And Geek. Search across their collections to find some good Halloween candle options. The Villian and Magic collections are great places to start. Check out Dark Arts (cinnamon and so.much.more), Watcher on the Walls (woodsy and smoky), or Pumpkin Pasties (yum, yum pumpkin pie). There are some usual suspects, too, like Not Your Basic Witch or This Is Halloween. You can literally shop ’til you drop at this soy candle shop.

Fandom Halloween Candles

Storybook Candle Company

Storybook Candle Company is another indie soy candle company that makes our Halloween candle shopping guide list. Those that are into fandoms are sure to welcome these beautiful candles, as there are a number of candles that are perfect for Halloween. You can always simplify your search by heading to the Signature Collection, which has Woodland Walk, The Bookshop, and The Lake – all of which would be fitting for Halloween.

Limited Edition Halloween Candles

Some candle companies put out candles that you need to be sitting on ready to grab them up. We consider those limited edition Halloween candles, and they are often worth the hustle. We’ve chosen a couple of our favorite places to snag a great Halloween candle or two.

Limited Edition Halloween Candles

Burke & Hare Co.

You have to be quick on the draw if you want one of the coveted soy blend candles from Burke & Hare Co. Shop year ’round for scents that will totally work in your Halloween lineup, as many of the fragrances sell out quickly. The fragrances are custom-blended and the candles are insanely good. Check out Ghost Flower or Death for a solid introduction to this wonderful company.

Limited Edition Halloween Candles

Lunar Light Candle Co.

The candles at Lunar Light Candle Company sell out pretty fast, so be quick at the draw if you want to include any of these candles in your Halloween lineup. You can shop here year ’round, as all their soy-blend candles have the dark vibe. The scents are custom blended, so you can find some unique fragrances here, such as Wicked Garden and Ghost Beach. They also have some decorative unscented pillar candles that would work well in anyone’s Halloween candlescape.

Creepy Halloween Candles

If you prefer the darker side to Halloween, there are a ton of creepy candles you can buy. From ouija boards to spine candles, there is just no end in sight.

Home to the beloved Pyropet, these candles are perfect for Halloween. The little wax kitty looks so cute until the wax melts and reveals his skeleton. Eeek! There are a few other Pyropets since the inception, but we’re still partial to the black Kisa Cat.

Creepy Halloween Candles

The Blackened Teeth

Straight from Australia, these decorative candles are the perfect pieces to add if you like a spooky type of Halloween vibe. Our favorite? The conjoined skull candle…how cool is that??? You’ll also find anatomical heart candles and coffin shaped candles to round out your shopping cart. They do ship internationally, so no worries there!

Label Love Halloween Candles

We’ll admit it. Sometimes we buy candles just because of the label. These companies have beautiful labels on their Halloween candles, so we can’t help but to snap them up.

Label Love Halloween Candles

DIO Candle Company

Another company you can always count on to have fun, seasonal collections is DIO Candle Company. They don’t disappoint with their Halloween lineup, which is super fun to shop. Check out Pumpkin Queen, Monster Mash, and Ghost Stories for starters. The labels are super cute and you can shop this collection all year long. None of the scents here overwhelm, so they would work well for a scent-sensitive Halloween gathering.

Greywick Lane is an indie candle company on Etsy that declares that every day is Halloween. The candles are 100% soy and come in a wide array of fragrances, such as Overlook (bourbon & butterscotch – omgeee) and Amity Escape (coconut with salty sea air & sunscreen). It’s the labels for us – they go all in on the entire spooky vibe, and we love it! Don’t stop at the candles, as they also have room sprays, wax melts, and bath/body products. Boo yeah!

Label Love Halloween Candles

Kitsch Candle

This one is all about the labels for us. Each candle sports a gorgeous vintage label, and the ones in the Halloween collection are eerily good. Here you’d shop for the label you want and then select your scent, such as Falling Leaves, Witches Brew, or Pumpkin Spice Latte.

Label Love Halloween Candles

Underworld Connection Candles

For super unique fragrances, check out the candles from Underworld Connection. They have “alternative scented candles” here, so you know you’re in for a unique treat. They have a specific Halloween collection, but any of their candles should fit the Halloween candle bill. The labels are amazing and help set the overall tone. Try Melted Mushroom if you like foodie type fragrances, or Crimson Tears for a cinnamon jolt. The Halloween Collection features candles such as Raise the Dead and Zombie Bite. They do have samplers available, if you’d like to test out a few fragrances before going all in.

Label Love Halloween Candles

Werther & Gray

Werther & Gray are one of the best indie places to find Halloween candles. The obvious picks are going to come from their Halloween Collection, with candles such as Witch (pumpkin bread), Devil (cinnamon clove), Black Cat (wormwood & vanilla), and Gourds (brown sugar & fig). Be sure to check out their other collections, as this candle company has that overall dark vibe. They do have collections that change, so stock up on your faves when you find them. With so many choices, it will be hard to pick just one!

Skull Candles

What Halloween decor is complete without a skull candle or two? It seems a lot of companies are making these candles these days, but we’ve rounded up some of the best, with incredible detail and super spooky vibes.

Halloween Wax Melts

If candles aren’t your thing, don’t despair! There are plenty of wax melts that have a great Halloween vibe. We love heading to Etsy for things like this, as the creativity with the shapes and scents always amazes us. Here we list some of our favorites:

The soy wax melts and candles are categorized here by type of scent, so it’s easy to find your favorite type of flavor. The tops are decorated with a little bit of bling, making them extra special. Although there’s plenty to choose from here, be sure to check out Amortentia and Book of Shadows. Fabulous!

This candle company has both clamshell wax melts and “scent shot” style melts, with plenty of options for Halloween. You’ll have to search through the selections, but we found scents just as Other Mother (black cherry merlot) and Salem (cinnamon caramel apple). The wax melts are all decorated with a little bling for some extra oomph.

The Scent Vault has Sleepy Hollow, which is a delectable pumpkin pie filling type of scent. You really can’t go wrong with any of the soy candles here.
