We recently asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to tell us about their favorite candles of all time. Here are their heavenly and scented recommendations:

1. Sweater Weather by Bath & Body Works


"It's eucalyptus, juniper berry, and sage! And despite it being a seasonal fragrance, it's totes appropriate to burn all year round. It smells so fresh and lovely!" —Brianna Lee, Facebook

Price: $21.50


2. Mark Twain Soy Candle from Paddywax's Library Collection


"It's tobacco flower and vanilla! It's a great earthy scent, and that touch of vanilla gives it just the right amount of lift." —Katie Wright, Facebook

Price: $11.90

The Library Collection also features scents like Jane Austen (gardenia, tuberose, and jasmine), Edger Allan Poe (Cardamom, absinthe, and sandalwood), and Oscar Wilde (Cedarwood, thyme, basil), and more.


6. Pumpkin Pecan Waffles by Bath & Body Works


"My roommate and I used to buy as many as we could afford every fall and stock up for the year! Do you want your home to always smell like you are baking a pie? If so, this is the candle for you!" —emilyh41a9f472f

Price: $21.89

7. Warm Tobacco Pipe by DW Home


"This scent and Sandalwood Myrrh are the two most perfect autumn scents in human history. I wait all summer to burn them all fall and winter, and my boyfriend likes them too." —Allis Valentine, Facebook

"I spend my whole paycheck on these candles. Oops!" —wolfehaylee

Price: $11.37


12. Macintosh Apple by Yankee Candle


"I am absolutely obsessed with it. Every time I pass by Yankee Candle in the mall, I go inside just to smell that particular scent. I swear if I were in a coma and someone waved the candle under my nose, I’d wake up." —ameericle

Price: $27.99

13. Eternal Jasmine by DW Home Decoware


"I found this candle and loved it so much that I bought two, intending to give the second as part of a gift for a friend's birthday. I ended up falling so in love with the scent that I couldn’t give it up and kept it. If I see it in stores, I stock up and buy them all. I’m addicted." —claireb30

Price: $12


14. Mini Pumpkin Butter Candle by WoodWick Candles

"These are god's gift to the world. My favorite is pumpkin butter because it makes my whole house smell like fall five minutes after you light the candle. Also, all of their candles make a crackling sound like a real fireplace!" —Rebecca Riggs, Facebook

Price: $9.99


18. Mahogany Teakwood by Bath & Body Works


"It's soft and slightly woody. If they bottled the scent, I would give it as a gift to every man and woman I know." —Sarah Treptow, Facebook

Price: $25.22

Pssst: You can actually get this scent in a spray form for $6.99, so spray away!


30. Tickled Pink by BridgeWater Candles


"I get migraines if things are too scented, so finding a good smelling but not overpowering candle can be difficult. I fell in love with this scent because it smells just like spring gardens. Plus, they come in super-cute tins!" —hdemsi

Price: $19.99
