    The 26 Best Fall Candles You Can Buy Online Right Now

    From pumpkin spice to a crackling fire, there's something for everyone on this list.

    1. A flannel candle to bring big fall energy to your home. It's a soft but bold fragrance with notes of vanilla, caramel, cinnamon, amber, tonka, smokey woods, and musk. And let's be honest: The whole aesthetic of this candle is *chef's kiss* It just looks so...clean.

    2. A cedar stack candle by Boy Smells if you want to be Insta famous, because it seems like this is the most popular candle brand on Instagram. And rightfully so! The opaque black glass jar, the soft pink label...it all looks so good. This is one of the brand's bestselling candles and it's easy to see (smell?) why. It smells like cedar chips and dried tobacco with notes of florals, which makes it a classic when it comes to woodsy aromas.

    3. A ginormous Midsummer's Night candle that burns for 150 hours, aka forever. The scent is very different from the other fall candles on this list; it's a blend of musk, patchouli, sage, and mahogany cologne. It's a huge hit among reviewers, with almost 25,000 5-star ratings on Amazon.

    4. A pumpkin and sage candle from Paige's Candle Co. that has some of the best packaging I've ever seen. From the blue jar to the apothecary-like label, I'm in love with how this candle looks. And the smell? OMG, it's otherworldly. My favorite from Paige is this one, but really any of her fall scents are absolutely divine and super original.

    5. A Pumpkin + Spices candle by Calyan Wax Co. because pumpkin spice is the definitive scent of autumn, and this one's my favorite (after testing literally dozens). Thanks to brown sugar, caramel, and vanilla, it's just sweet enough to smell authentic, and is infused with clove, cedarwood, cypress, and cinnamon bark essential oils to even it out so it's not too sweet or artificial smelling.

    6. A Norwegian Woods candle that smells like you're sitting under a spruce tree right after rainfall thanks to an infusion of citrus, sage, and oak moss essential oils. The burn time on this bb is a whopping 65 hours, and when it's lit, it crackles like a fire because of its wooden wick.

    7. A candle that really leans into the season, complete with maple leaf and what I assume is a PSL on the label. This small -but-mighty candle has one simple but lovely scent: baby powder, so it's a nice and clean scent that would be perfect for bathrooms.

    8. A uniquely shaped three-layered candle with a wood wick that's the widest I've ever seen. When I burn this it literally sounds like I've got a crackling fire going, and it's sooo nice.

    9. Jonathan Adler's Pop Candle in a grapefruit scent that will brighten your day. One of the best things about fall? Citrus! From blood orange to yuzu to grapefruit, it's one of the most iconic smells of the season.

    10. A warm and spiced mulled cider candle from Acacia Accents that'll have your whole house smelling like a festive fall evening. This is one of a few candles where I smell it and it smells exactly like it sounds, all thanks to notes of apple, cinnamon, and orange.

    The candle is shown on a cutting board surrounded by cinnamon sticks, apples, and tree branches.

    11. An apple cider donuts tin travel candle from Angela Rose Studios so you can get your fix while you're away from home. That said, I'm currently burning this bb right next to me at my desk, so to each their own! Even though the dominate notes are cinnamon, vanilla, sugar, and apple, it still doesn't seem too sweet for me. It's literally the perfect-smelling candle, especially since apple cider is my favorite type of donut.

    12. Candlefolk's Apple Harvest candle that makes me feel like I've been dropped directly into the middle of an apple farm on the first day of fall. It's definitely apple heavy (in the best way possible) and has glimmers of cinnamon and clove to keep it warm and spicy.

    13. A brown sugar rum candle from NaturalAnnie Essentials to fill your home with the sweetness of freshly baked goods, minus all the hard work.

    14. A Hearth candle from Jack Be Nimble that'll make you feel like you're cozying up next to a warm fireplace. I especially love this candle because of its packaging. The opaque white glass and wooden lid makes me feel real fancy when I use it, plus the notes of orange spice, balsam fir, and pine smoke go the distance because it's a double-wick candle.

    15. A Fallen Leaves candle by Delicate Wicks, which has major autumn vibes thanks to a mix of cinnamon, apple, berries, green leaves, and pecan. The earthiness of this scent is enhanced with notes of cinnamon leaf, patchouli, cedarwood, vetiver, and sandalwood essential oils.

    16. A set of three Hocus Pocus-themed candles for all the spooktacular Disney fans out there. In collaboration with Freeform's 31 Nights Of Halloween, now you can celebrate the spirit of the Sanderson Sisters with candles inspired by the personality of each sister.

    17. A candle-turned-whiskey-glass with a glass jar that's specifically designed to be reused as a whiskey glass once the candle is burned through. Each scent even comes with an accompanying cocktail recipe to get the party started. My favorite? The Lumberjack, which smells like fresh-cut cedar, leather, and musk with hints of juniper and smoke.

    18. A candle that smells like the first fall harvest, aka slightly spicy and with notes of dried fruit. It comes in a really nice, big jar, and I plan on reusing it for cotton swab storage after I'm done burning it.

    19. A Pet House candle that helps eliminate unpleasant smells caused by your beloved but stinky furry friends. And with scents like evergreen forest, apple cider, and caramel latte, there's really something for everyone.

    20. A candle with such beautiful packaging you'll want to save it for gift-giving season, but you shouldn't because it smells sooooo good. With notes of Honeycrisp apple, oak, chrysanthemum, cedar ash, vetiver, and oats, it's a lovely combination of just enough earthy with just enough fruity florals.

    21. A bonfires and s'mores candle so you can get hit with a tsunami of nostalgia for sitting by the bonfire making a s'mores. It has a heavy, sweet marshmallow scent that's complemented by notes of clove, vanilla, and sandalwood, so it's definitely a great pick if you prefer a sweeter-smelling candle. It's also one of the most aesthetically pleasing candles on this list — I absolutely adore the blue jar, cork lid, and beautiful label.

    22. A oatmeal cookie candle for fans of freshly baked sweets. It definitely smells exactly like oatmeal cookies and is complemented by notes of ground ginger, clove, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Also how good looking is this candle?!?! The black glass jar, the wood wick, the classic label...it's just so perfect. It also burns for 80 hours!

    23. An orange peel and clove candle from Abboo Candle Co. to give your home a warm and inviting smell that's the epitome of fall (and winter, too!). With simple notes of orange peel, clove, cinnamon, and sandalwood, it's a harmonious combination of sweet and spice.

    24. A "witch better have my money" candle that'll make you laugh every time you light it, because Rihanna is the GOAT and sometimes witches owe you money. With scents of golden pear, apple, and bergamot, it'll not just light up an area but make it smell good, too.

    25. A woody leather La Jolie Muse candle that will add the perfect amount of warmth and depth to any room. It'll burn for 85–100 hours and uses 100% natural wax and a lead-free cotton wick that is vegan, cruelty and paraben free, and eco-conscious to guarantee a clean and even burn.

    26. A dark literature candle if you're a bibliophile who wants to keep it spooky this October. Inspired by The Corpse Queen novel by Heather M. Herrman, the candle has notes of sawdust, peppermint, and lemon peel. I'm obsessed with how spooky good it is!
