To celebrate the start of fall, we’re introducing home scents that make us want to bundle up next to the fire, even if the Arizona weather feels differently. From pumpkin spice and baked apple cinnamon to rich sandalwood and palo santo, here are five candles that are perfect to ring in the season of plaid, PSLs, foliage and football.
Inspired by time at home, the Woodlands candle in Otherland’s new Homestead collection features notes of rich palo santo, redwood bark and smoked vanilla. $36, otherland.com.
Homesick, Apple Orchard
A juicy bite of a freshly picked apple means fall is here. Pie, cobbler, or cider scent is culled from top notes of red apple, mandarin leaf; mid notes of clove, cinnamon sticks and pear; and base notes of pomegranate, sugar cane. $34, homesick.com.
L’Or De Seraphine, Monroe Candle
Drawing inspiration from fall in upstate New York, where the autumnal colors of the changing leaves and the crisp breeze bring about nostalgic and cozy memories, sultry sandalwood floats above rich vanilla and amber, perfuming the air and creating an irresistible and comforting aroma. $44, lordeseraphine.com.
Anecdote Candles, BASIC
A tribute to everyone’s favorite fall beverage, “Basic” layers pumpkin and cardamom on top of a rich base of clove leaf and harvest acorns. Infused with Valencia orange, cinnamon, and ginger root, this is almost as good as the beverage. $26, anecdotecandles.com.
Boy Smells, CASHMERE KUSH
Powdery musks add a luxurious interpretation to the brand’s iconic Kush candle, where cashmere wood rhubarb mixes with tulip and vetiver hugged by open-ended notes of white amber powdery musk and pot flower geranium leaf. $34, boysmells.com.
