Summer’s almost over, and there’s no better way to welcome autumn than by lighting the best fall candles and letting them envelop you in a warm, inviting aroma. The kind of fragrance that reminds you of new beginnings—crisp early mornings, freshly fallen leaves, the first page of a back-to-school notebook. After all, fall isn’t just a time of year; it’s a feeling.
Much like sweaters, cozy socks, and pumpkin-spiced lattes, you can never have too many candles when it’s chilly out. So in honor of the best season of the year (sorry, we don’t make the rules), we found the very best seasonal candles to light up. (Pro tip: To make sure you get the most out of whatever candle you choose, let it burn long enough for the entire top to melt on your first light. It’ll burn more evenly the next time.)
Ahead, shop our favorite fall candles, including options inspired by some of the top fall scents— campfires, pecan pies, soft cashmere knits, and long walks in the woods. There’s something for everyone, whether you prefer a budget-friendly pick from Target or Walmart, or a luxe luminary from Boy Smells that can basically double as home decor.
