1. Pumpkin chai mug candle

We'll kick things off with a candle that smells good enough to eat—er, drink—though you definitely shouldn't take a bite. Etsy seller InaraNewYork offers a handmade soy candle that features an unmistakable pumpkin chai scent with hints of clove, cinnamon, pumpkin, vanilla, nutmeg and cream. The best part? This beautiful candle, which is embellished with a wax cinnamon stick and star anise, comes in a real mug that can be cleaned and used once you've fully melted the candle.


2. Candy corn candle

Fall signals the arrival of sweater weather and hayrides, but it also marks the magic of Halloween...and Halloween candy! Candy corn is among the more divisive seasonal treats, but people who love it ‌really‌ love it. Thankfully for these folks, Etsy artisan ChrissysSoapsandmore sells a sweet candy corn-scented candle in a glass jar topped with actual candy corn, dried flowers and bits of pumpkin. So cute!



3. Apple maple bourbon candle

OK, we're totally enamored with the design of this wick candle from SeasonsAromaCandleCo on Etsy, which features a large wax apple and three layers of incredible scents. When you pick up your own, you'll notice hints of bourbon, coconut, maple, vanilla, orange, cinnamon and—you guessed it—apple. We can't get enough.


4. Witch’s brew candle

For those who appreciate the more mysterious side of fall, a witch's brew candle from Etsy maker NewMoonBeginnings is a must-have. Made with mini crystals and stones and loaded with scents like cedarwood, cinnamon and clove, this witch-themed jar candle is available in multiple sizes and shapes—and it just might become your favorite piece of Halloween home decor.


5. Floating fall-leaf candles

While we're suckers for fall fragrances, we know that strong scents and essential oil additions aren't for everyone. If you're looking for something simpler that will still help you embrace this beautiful time of year, check out these floating fall leaf candles from TnHoneyChick on Etsy. Handmade with beeswax from an organic bee farm in Tennessee, these charming creations look just like fallen leaves and will add a fragrance-free touch to your seasonal home decor.

Looking for something outside the box that will still fulfill your fall candle craving? A pecan pie candle from SLSCreationsDesign on Etsy will make you see candles in a whole new light. These large and incredibly realistic candles look just like actual pecan pie—an autumn dessert classic— and are available in 5 in. and 9 in. sizes. Can you imagine the burn time on these amazing creations?


7. Rustic pumpkin roll candle

You might not live on a family farm or deep in the forest among enchanting autumn leaves, but you can make believe as much with a rustic pumpkin roll-scented candle from Etsy artisan TeresaLynnsSimpleLux. Each candle is poured into a Mason jar and features fall aromas like pumpkin puree, spice cake and even powdered sugar. Light this candle on a chilly evening for unbeatable fall ambiance and a gorgeous glow.

8. Book-scented candle

There's nothing better than curling up with a good book, a cashmere sweater and a cup of tea on a chilly fall day. That's why this book-scented candle from Etsy seller TickTockLittleFox totally makes the cut as one of our favorite fall candles. With notes of bergamot, spruce, dark musk and more, this charming candle has a burn time of about 20 hours and arrives in an amber glass jar that will make any fall reading session just a little bit cozier. We'll take one for every room, please!


9. Minimalist apple cider candle

Embrace fall without all the bells and whistles with this fresh apple cider candle from UrbanMeltsCandleCo on Etsy. It will arrive at your doorstep in a plain glass jar with a simple label, but its aroma is anything but basic, featuring hints of honey crisp apple, cedarwood, clove and vanilla. Fall candles are such a simple pleasure.
