I thought I would share my favorite Fall candles with you all since I consider myself a candle connoisseur. 

Nest Pumpkin Chai Candle  – Notes of wild pumpkin, spicy masala chai, cardamom, ginger and cinnamon. I love this candle but it is a bit speedy.  

Diptyque Feu de Bois – one of the most unique smelling candles and a favorite! This sophisticated blend of rare woods recalls the crackling of an open fire

Diptyque Amber  – I love this amber candle too! A warm and elegant procession of the woods vetiver and patchouli, enhanced with radiant aniseed, insolent spices, mysterious incense, cistus and Tonka bean.

Yankee Candle Autumn Wreath – there is a large following of Yankee Candle lovers, and with their price point and large selection of scents, it is easy to see how it is favorite.  This Autumn wreath candle smells of autumn leaves and cinnamon apples.

Yankee Candle Spiced Pumpkin – a captivating scent of pumpkins baked in simmering spices of clove, nutmeg and cinnamon.  I have not personally burned this one because I am not a huge spice pumpkin candle fan, but it does smell really nice if that is your jam!

Bath and Body Works Marshmallow Fireside Like Yankee Candle, there is a large Bath and Body works following too.  I love the Marshmallow Fireside candle and actually burn it until February! It smells of Toasted Marshmallow, Smoldering Woods, Fire Roasted Vanilla, and Crystallized Amber.

Bath and Body Works Leaves – another Fall favorite as it smells of Crisp Red Apple, Golden Nectar, and Warm Clove Spice. 

Bath and Body Works AutumnA nice fresh scent for fall, it smells ofRed Gala Apple, Juicy Fig, Eucalyptus Leaf, Fir Balsam.

Bath and Body Works Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin – Now I mentioned that I don’t usually care for pumpkin spice candles themselves, however this one has a stronger scent of cinnamon and I love it. Smells like pumpkin bread, or per the website: harvest Pumpkin, Spiced Clove, Vanilla Cream, Brown Sugar

Voluspa Baltic Amber – Baltic Amber blends notes of amber resin, sandalwood, cedar and vanilla bloom. It is one of Voluspa’s top sellers, and when you burn it you’ll know why.  Great candle, and it’s American made.

Voluspa Bourbon Vanilla – smells of fragrant vanilla beans.  Reminiscent of baking.

Jo Malone English Oak and Redcurrant – This candle is new this year.  “Heart Note: Rose, as the fragrance unfurls, this opulent floral, with its spicy, honey facets wraps the scent with sumptuous texture. Base Note: Roasted Oak, a warm and compelling woody note that gives the addictive quality of roasted oak. The forest at dawn. The juicy bite of redcurrant. The zest of green mandarin. The freshness of rose softened with white musk.” I have not personally burned it, but I have played around with the cologne in the store and thought – oh, it would be perfect as a candle!
