14 Fall Candles That Don’t All Smell like Pumpkin
While we love our pumpkin spice lattes, watching the leaves change and the start of football season, one of our favorite parts of fall has to be cuddling up under a blanket and lighting a seasonally appropriate candle. There’s simply nothing more relaxing than curling up with a good book and letting the warm and cozy scents of autumn quickly fill up the room. While there’s nothing wrong with stopping by your local Bath & Body Works and picking up a few seasonal favorites, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite unique fall candles that you might just fall in love with.
