10 Unique Fall Scents You Need in Your Home Right Now

Some people note the start of the fall season with the addition of the eternally loved PSL to the Starbucks menu. But fall officially starts for me as soon as all of the delicious, seasonally-inspired candles hit the shelves.

Even if it still feels like summer where you are, you can immediately start getting into the fall spirit with any of these unique and cozy fall scents.

Crisp Morning Air

Featuring notes of eucalyptus, mint, pear and sage, this candle conjures up that cool, crisp freshness of a fall morning. You'll want to put on a pair of warm, fuzzy socks after smelling this one.

Who's Got It? Yankee Candle

Autumn Hayride

The scent of this candle makes me think of heading to the pumpkin patch or an apple-picking trip to the orchard. Maple, honey, cinnamon and vanilla notes will warm up your space the minute you begin burning it.

Who's Got It? SONOMA life+style


Fall and sweater weather go hand in hand, and this gorgeously scented candle with notes of violet, ginger, vanilla and cedarwood will make you want to grab your coziest cardigan and a big book.



Grand fir, red alder, cottonwood, moss and saltwater scent this hand-poured soy wax candle, conjuring up images of plaid shirts and board games by the fire. This is a perfect choice for those who love masculine candle scents.

Who's Got It? The Motley

Dark Rum

Notes of bergamot, plum, rum and leather round out this candle that somehow manages to smell both exotic and sweet at the same time.


Pumpkin Pecan Waffles

We couldn’t do a fall candle roundup without including at least one pumpkin scent, and this intoxicating candle does not disappoint. While you would think it would have a sweet, overpowering smell, the scent is actually very warm and somewhat spicy, with just a touch of vanilla.

Who's Got It? Bath & Body Works


Fresh coffee beans, almond milk and patchouli make this candle a must for any coffee lover. The scent will make you want to grab a pair of warm slippers and a plate of fresh-baked cookies.


The food theme definitely runs rampant with fall scents, but this chocolate candle is simply the perfect mix of warm, sultry and sweet. It would work as a wonderful scent to burn for a holiday get together or dinner party.

Who's Got It? Nate Berkus

Jazz Club

Musk, vanilla, vetiver and tobacco are meant to conjure up the image of a hidden Brooklyn jazz club on a cold, crisp evening. This candle’s masculine scent would be the perfect complement to a cocktail party.

Who's Got It? Maison Martin Margiela

Goji Tarocco Orange

As far as I’m concerned, I saved the best for last with this candle — it's my favorite on the list. This scent is somehow able to be both masculine and feminine with the perfect mix of spice and citrus. While I do use it all year long, it will always be my perfect fall go-to scent.

Who's Got It? Voluspa
