Finally. The sticky humidity of summer has cleared and the crisp breeziness of fall has descended upon us. Some may call it sweater weather — and don't get us wrong, we're big fans of sweaters — but to us, it's candle weather. While there's never really a wrong time to light a chill-vibe-enhancing candle, it feels particularly apt during the autumnal months, when homes become drafty, the sky darkens earlier and you just want to snuggle up on the couch with a hot toddy. With that in mind, we combed through our favorite candle brands' stellar lineups to find the coziest, warmest, most inviting scents they have to offer.
Think of these picks as all the best parts about fall — a steamy cup of coffee on a cold morning, a toasty fireplace, a good book and no place else to go — distilled into aromas, and then poured into chic-as-hell jars. There's a scent for every taste and an option for every budget. (They also all happen to make excellent gifts, in case you need something to bring to a Thanksgiving celebration, but aren't exactly handy in the kitchen.) Stock up now, and then enjoy them until it's time to switch over to eggnog and holly-inspired scents.
