Pumpkin season is upon us. Trader Joe's has officially trotted out all its pumpkin-flavored wares, the PSL has been available at Starbucks for weeks, and you can't scroll through your Instagram feed without encountering fall imagery. We get it—summer is over. Don't fight it; lean into it. To celebrate everyone's favorite squash, we rounded up our favorite pumpkin candles, aka the perfect accoutrement to those cashmere sweaters and lit fireplaces. Shop our picks below.
The brand has three sizes of pumpkin spice candles, but we're partial to the largest, in the spirit of really leaning into the pumpkin season. The natural soy candle is hand-poured into apothecary-inspired jars, and the rich, buttery, pumpkin pie scent a blend of phthalate-free fragrance oils.
This candle achieves an autumnal yum level previously only granted to Gwyneth Paltrow's arugula salad with maple syrup.
The vintage-inspired jar houses a spicy pumpkin candle with additional notes of orange zest, ginger, brown sugar, and vanilla.
Crisp fall evenings wouldn't be complete without this candle softly burning in the background, filling our home with the smell of freshly baked pumpkin pie. Bonus: It's eco-friendly and made with biodegradable ingredients.
If you're ready to hunker down and spend the larger part of the weekend inside and under a blanket (who isn't, honestly?), then you'll be happy to know this decadent-smelling candle burns for 50 to 60 hours. Get ready to have your home smell like a delicious fall dessert.
Get your PSL fix sans sugar with this nutty, aromatic candle (that also happens to be an Amazon best seller). It smells sweet but not cloying and contains all the classic scents that define the season: pumpkin (obviously), vanilla, pecans, vanilla, and maple.
Enjoy both the smell and sounds of fall when you light up this candle. The soy-wax blend releases a cozy, spicy pumpkin scent, and the wood wick makes a subtle crackling sound as the candle burns.
This hand-poured, small-batch candle is infused with nutmeg and cinnamon leaf natural essential oils (i.e., the pumpkin pie scent doesn't smell artificial). Plus, the simplicity of the jar and label make it an unobtrusive presence among your existing home décor.
Did you know that your favorite natural soap brand also made candles? Us either, and they are delightful. Pick up this seasonal pumpkin one. (Related: It also has pumpkin-scented hand and dish soaps, should you really want to go all-in.)
