10 Favorite Candles for Fall

Once autumn arrives, I like to switch out my summery candles — like citrus and light floral scents — for warmer, woodsier options. There’s something so relaxing about cozying up with a soft sweater and lighting a scented candle in the cooler months. With scents like cinnamon, vanilla and cedarwood, here I’m sharing my favorite fall candles. Do you have any fall favorites of your own? Let me know in the comments section below, or on Facebook!
One: Voluspa Clove Pomander Warm notes of pear, spice, bergamot and nutmeg.
Two: Diptyque Vanille An elegant vanilla scent softened by smooth, woody accents.
Three: Illume Guilded Amberleaf Rich cedarwood and golden amber infused with mandarin, vanilla and tobacco.
Four: Linnea’s Lights Cashmere Sophisticated and soft scent, with patchouli, vanilla & lime.
Five: Voluspa Golden Cypress Smells like clean, sugary balsam of a snapped cypress needle.
Six: Diptyque Feu de Bois Fragrance reminiscent of a real wood fireplace.
Seven: Capri Blue Volcano Delicious blend of tropical fruits and sugared oranges, with crisp mountain greens.
Eight: Found Goods Market Mahogany Smells like mahogany wood, white musk and a hint of fresh freesia.
Nine: Pottery Barn Pine Berry A warm scent of cinnamon, apple, Valencia orange, and sandalwood.
Ten: Nest Pumpkin Chai Cozy autumn blend of pumpkin, chai, and cinnamon.

    Love these! Nest Pumpkin Chai is incredible and by far our top seller this time of year. Clove Pomander is a fantastic fall scent from Voluspa! I love Baltic Amber, too. 🙂 And hooray for some Linnea's Lights love! Cashmere is amazing. All of their scents are so delicate and beautiful! Have you tried their seasonal scents, Pumpkin and Hearth? http://www.candlesoffmain.com/linneas-lights-pumpkin-candle.aspx – Stephanie | Bon Bougie

  11. Seriously this post is so dangerous for me! I have an unhealthy obsession with very expensive candles lol. The volupsa ones are my absolute fav!

  12. Love this! I'd like to try numbers five, seven and nine!!

  13. All such great picks! I'm a huge fan of Jo Malone and Diptyque and a Diptyque is actually opening right behind my condo so I have a feeling I'm going to be spending way too much time there! 🙂

    I still haven't ever bought a Voluspa candle but I'd love to give the "Golden Cyprus" a try!
