It’s finally (almost) fall — which means it’s just about time to pack away your Barbiecore-hued pink bikinis and crochet coverups, and replace them with chic turtlenecks, leather jackets, and on-trend statement loafers. It’s officially the time of year where it’s socially acceptable to burn *all* of the fall-scented candles and stream horror movies all day long. Major win for all the autumn-loving ladies (myself included).

While summer scents are often associated with luxe travel destinations and juicy, tropical fruits — fall candles are all about cozying up indoors and embracing more comforting notes like spiced clove, nostalgia-inducing cinnamon, the sweetest pumpkin spiced lattes, and warm vanilla.

Bustle has already rounded up 19 perfumes that are basically autumn in a bottle. If you want to make your home smell just as great, here are eight perfect fall candles that you’ll want to burn during the cooler months in 2022. Anyone else very much ready for bundling up under massive weighted blankets on the couch and binge watching nostalgic Halloween movies?

Filled with undeniable heat and sensuality, Midnight Tulip is a vibrant floral scent made dark and deep with notes of smoky incense and earthy patchouli.

For nature lovers that want to bring a bit of the outdoors inside, Flannel smells like revitalizing, chilled mountain air. Bergamot has an awakening effect, while notes of smooth mahogany and soft musk create a feeling of comfort and warmth.

Pumpkin anything is a fall classic, so it just makes sense to fill your home with the scent. If you live for PSL season, the combination of spicy chai, cinnamon, and pumpkin will make you want to light this up nonstop — and Nest ensured that it packs plenty of burn time so you won’t have to hold back.

LAFCO New York’s limited edition Spiced Pomander candle was so popular that it had to bring the scent back for fall 2022. As a bonus, the jar is so pretty you’ll be able to upcycle it for your makeup brushes.
