Scent is one of the most powerful triggers of memory. Which is why each year we look forward to surrounding ourselves with the fragrance of fall. When sweater weather arrives, we start craving the scents of apples, wood smoke, cinnamon and pumpkin spice – you know what we mean. Our correspondent Jillian Tangen has curated a list of the 12 best luxury scented candles that smell like fall, with the fragrance of  pumpkins, campfires, apples and more, perfect for the fall 2022 season.

what are the best smelling fall candles this year?

There’s a lot to love about fall – the colorful foliage, sweater weather, pumpkin picking and, of course, it’s home to two of our favorite holidays, Halloween and Thanksgiving.

But let’s be honest. Another reason we all look forward to fall is that it marks the official start of candle season.

Yes, we love burning candles year round – they’ve even been known to boost your mood, but during fall it’s so much more pleasurable to light them thanks to the longer nights and crisp cool air. There’s nothing like a flickering wick and aromatic fragrance to complete the season’s cozy atmosphere in your home, right?
