Beat the seasonal blues with the best autumn candles to cosy-up your home.
It's time to get all warm and cosy, and light up the darkening days with wonderful autumn candles that will make you feel chill and relaxed while giving your home seasonal scents everyone will adore.
We love the changes in the seasons, as it's something different and breaks up the year. We're certainly fond of the autumn months, when the air gets crisper and you can enjoy great walks in the park or wood as you marvel at the blaze of colour as leaves turn spectacular shades of red and orange.
Creating a seasonal ambience in the home is also a real treat at this time of the year, and there's no better way to do it than with scented candles. Here are some of the best autumn candles you can consider for your home this year.
Best Scents for Autumn Candles
Pumpkin: Halloween is one of the hallmarks of autumn, and one of the most recognisable aspects of this ghoulish time is the pumpkin. You can carve one up and use the innards to make a pie or an equally comforting and creamy soup — and you can also have pumpkin in your candles. Our Pumpkin Spice scented soy candle blends pumpkin with nutmeg, cinnamon, clove and ginger. You can place some around your home for a warm and cosy feel approaching Halloween — and to retain that hygge feel in your rooms during the long nights to come.

Hygge: We mentioned hygge, the Danish word or term that describes a feeling of cosiness that's special, whether you're alone at home or with friends or family. It's a growing lifestyle trend based on savouring the simple things in life. That's why we created our own Hygge scented soy candle. It contains the fragrances of sugar and sweet vanilla, with gentle notes of clove and cinnamon, to help you unwind at home and feel all warm and glowing.
Toffee: Autumn is also a time to indulge yourself in the things you like, including sweet treats like toffee. You won't have to worry about getting too much sugar when you have a calorie-free Toffee Vanilla amber candle from our Hello Autumn range — the delicious scent of baked caramel toffee but without the guilt.
Spiced Plum: Is it too early to break out the mulled wine? Never! And to accompany your seasonal hot drink, you can light up a Spiced Plum soy candle from our Let's Stay Home collection for a lovely night in. We've added vanilla, orange and clove leaf essential oils for added bliss and enjoyment. You could say it will light up your autumn life.
Pine: Nothing quite says autumn like the smell of pine needles, and having autumn candles with this invigorating scent can liven up your home as the year winds down and the days get darker and colder. We've combined the aroma of pine needles, woody patchouli and cedarwood into a beautiful candle that will bring the forest into your home and help you destress.

There are so many more scents used in autumn candles that you'll be tempted to keep using them well into next year. They can include aromas of cashmere, expresso, chocolate, fig, sage, myrrh, pomegranate and lots of other great scents to thrill your senses. Scented autumn candles really do help make the autumn months a breeze.
