Candles to Fall in Love With!

As Fall hits, store shelves start flowing with the best candles of the year!! Fall and Holiday! Now is my absolute favorite time to stock up, if I could- my house could smell like Christmas all year round! At some point they will sell out and won’t be back for another 12 months, so don’t wait too long before you try my favorites below!
Nest- Birchwood Pine
$42.00 – 8.1oz
Nest has a great collection of candles all year round, however, their famous Holiday Collection is on a level of its own! Birchwood Pine is reminiscent of a majestic, winter forest. The notes are White Pine, Fir Balsam, Birchwood, Rich Musk, and Amber. Made with a food-grade paraffin wax (yes, that’s right, its FDA approved!), this brand is perfect for anyone with little ones or animals that get stuck into all the wrong things! It also has a burn time of 50-60 hours, and is cruelty free too!
Voluspa- Gilt Pomander & Hinoki
$28.00 – 16oz
This beautiful coconut wax blend candle is the essence of Fall and the warmth of the Holiday season. It’s a spicey and woodsy mix of Golden Spiced Pomander, Cardamon, and Japanese Hinoki. Visually, it’s a beautiful glass jar to display in your home, as well as 100 hours burn time with an all-natural wick. This candle is also formulated without parabens, sulfates, or phthalates; features sustainable, pesticide-free manufacturing, and is not tested on animals! Everything we love in a candle!
Anthropologie- Capri Blue Fir & Firewood
$30.00 – 19oz
This candle not only smells amazing, but it’s a paraffin-soy wax blend with an 85 hour burn time, and its vegan! The notes in this candle are fruity and woodsy; green aroma of apple, clove, fir, pine needle, white birch, cedar, vetiver, and musk! It smells like Holiday season in a jar- and looks beautiful too!
Diptyque- Exquisite Almond
$72.00 – 6.5oz
Fall in a candle! Every year I specifically wait for the Diptyque limited edition candles to grace us with their presence! This year, I’m obsessed with Exquisite Almond, a lush Fall scent with top notes of Almond and Tonka Bean. This high quality candle is made in France and has up to 60 hours burn time, the packaging is so luxurious that it makes for the perfect gift during Holiday!
