10 Candle Scents Perfect for Fall

September is World Candle Month

The National Candle Association and National Today have teamed up to celebrate World Candle Month. Held every September, World Candle Month (#WorldCandleMonth) is an opportunity to recognize the not-so-humble candle, it’s impact throughout history, and the role it plays in our own lives today.

This year’s theme is “Illuminate Your Life” and is dedicated to the ways candles light up our world and fragrance our lives. Since the earliest days of tallow-based candles to the tens of thousands of shapes, sizes, and fragrances available today, candles have been a source of more than just light. They have provided inspiration, relaxation, and calming sensations that are as welcome today as they have been throughout history. 

We have rounded up some of our Influenster members' favorite fall and winter candle scents below. Which candle brands bring light into your life? Let us know in the comments.

Candles are often used as decor and really help bring out the best of the place. However, one of the chief characteristics of a candle is its fragrance. If you ever decide to shop for scented candles online,there is no way you could know whether you will like it or not. Thankfully, you can count on candles from bath and body works. Their entire white barn core collection is just amazing. During this lockdown, I ordered these candles which really helped in relieving stress and uplift my mood. White Gardenia: mild spring floral fragrance, which is extremely indulgent. Mahogany teakwood high intensity: Strong masculine scent and has a really good throw. Into the nights: smells like sugared raspberry, soy based wax highly concentrated with fragrance oils

This is hands down my favorite candle ever created at Bath and Body Works. I’ve purchased this candle for at least 50 people over the years and received countless compliments. I’d absolutely recommend this for anyone that loves the cinnamon and apple scents of the fall. One candle will fill a large space. If you purchase the three wick, make sure you burn it until an even melt pool is established on top. This will ensure they candle burns evenly all of the way down. Thank you for reading my review!

Having a candle in a home is an essential. The type of candle changes the aesthetic of the home by bringing in a whole different smell and aura. This candle reminds me of the leaves falling down at the start of fall and the warm summer weather slowly getting colder which feels like being wrapped in a warm blanket. This smell makes your home feel warmer by igniting your senses. Yankee Candles definitely knows how to make your home feel like a home.

Personally, bath and body works are my favorite candles, marshmallow fireside being the best scent ever. I have repurchased this candle twice already, that’s how much I love it. It literally is the perfect balance between a sweet marshmallow scent and a woody cedar smell, it’s impeccable. Every time I light this candle, everyone compliments it. The scent lasts forever and it really travels around my home, it’s amazing. Also, Bath and Body Works candles last so long it’s truly incredible. Hands down the best candle ever, I would 100000% recommend!

I’m obsessed with the aromatherapy line - specifically the stress relief. It is absolutely amazing! I instantly feel lighter when I light this candle in my room. The eucalyptus is so calming and soothing you will feel so relaxed. I buy these on sale and always use a coupon, but if I had to purchase full price I would because it’s a game changer. I would suggest that if you have a smaller room to buy the smaller candle because it is a powerful scent.

Sweater Weather will forever be my favorite fall scent from Bath & Body Works. It is so fresh, with a bit of musk to it. It leaves my whole house smelling AMAZING and gives me alllll of the fall feels 🍁🔥🎃 I am not big on sweet scents when it comes to home fragrance and this is the best fresh, fall scent I've yet to ever come across. I don't even know how many I purchase every year, but I am sure to always stay stocked up 💛

I adore Bath & Body Works candles! This scent has been a favorite for years (in all forms). It’s nostalgic every winter for me! I love that it has three wicks which produces a strong scent throughout the room. Also, side note, my new favorite candle scent was one I got from them last year called The Perfect Autumn. I hope that one returns this year because it was PERFECTION!!

This candle makes the house so warm and inviting! It smells spicy and sweet like someone has been cooking holiday treats all day. It isn’t very expensive for such a big candle, and it is good quality. My only complaint is that I don’t like the packaging. It is clunky, heavy, cheap looking glass, and the labels are super dated. So I don’t like displaying this when I have company over. If they made the jar and label a little more sophisticated and elegant, it would be 5 stars no question.
