Autumn is all about crunchy leaves, chunky sweaters, hot cider, freshly baked pies, cozy nights in by the fire, and of course, pumpkin spice everything. And when you think about it that way, it makes total sense that all the best scented candles are fall-inspired. It may seem a little soon, but if the muggy humidity of late summer is starting to get to you, it's time to bust out one of these babies.

Whether you prefer fruity scents, sugary scents, or spicy, musky scents (or even something different altogether!) there's a little something seasonal for everyone. Notes like vanilla bourbon, figs, pine, cinnamon sugar, cedar wood, pomegranate, and more can all add so much autumnal goodness to your home.
