For best results, allow the candle to burn until the wax pool fully melts to the edge before blowing out. It’s truly one of the best fall candles on the market.

Spiced Pumpkin Soy Wax Candle

The best fall candles don’t just smell like your favorite autumn joys (read: pumpkin spice, apple cider, smoky woods and cinnamon), they fill a whole room, too. This soy wax candle from Grove Collaborative checks all those boxes and more. Upon its first burn, I was amazed at how well the spiced pumpkin scent carried through my dining room. The stone container with a seasonal print lights up any room, too. Pair it with Grove Collaborative’s new fall scents collection for the ultimate autumn escape.

Pumpkin Spiced Cake Candle

It’s not fall unless you have an assortment of pumpkin spiced everything: Candles, snacks (ahem, pumpkin spice bagels from Trader Joe’s) and of course, coffee and tea drinks. Which is why I love this pumpkin spiced cake candle from Glasshouse Fragrances. It somehow manages to fit all the yummy smells of everything nice and pumpkin spiced into one luxurious jar. Pairs well with a fresh slice of pumpkin pie.

Why pick a candle that’s just one color when it could be three? Olive green and two shades of orange in this pillar candle just scream “fall.” And it pairs perfectly with other fall decor elements like acorns and fall leaves. Plus, it’s McIntosh apple-scented!
