Believe me when I say that it’s never too early to start thinking about autumn candles. In fact, I’ve been taking notes on the best fall candles for 2022 for months now, and I’m happy to share my findings! It’s pretty time-consuming to sniff this many delicious fall candles, but somebody’s gotta do it, and I’m the right gal for the job.
When it comes to the best fall candles, there are truly a wide variety of scent profiles and preferences. Some people like woodsy campfire scents that remind them of the great outdoors and autumn’s changing leaves. Others prefer candles that evoke warm, cuddly sweater weather vibes. Then, there are the never-sweet-enough candle lovers who go wild for all things Pumpkin Spice Latte, snickerdoodle and the like.
Whichever category piques your interest, I can assure you that there’s a candle or two (or three…) for you on this list. There’s also a candle for every price range, with more affordable picks coming in at under $20 and major splurge candles (looking at you, Le Labo!) perfect for hostess gifts or treat-yourself moments.
Whether you’re on the hunt for the perfect candle to light at your Thanksgiving celebration or in your bedroom all fall long, the fall candles below are sure to tempt and delight you. BTW—I’m not saying to go nuts, but you do tend to burn through your fall candles pretty quickly, so you might want to stock up on a few while you’re here. Just saying! The more, the merrier.
