I don’t think your nose is ready for this. 


As an ex-Bath and Body Works employee, I have quite a collection of candles. Spicy, floral and fruity – I’ve got it all, but my favorite candles – the ones that make me want to run home after work or school to light up are my fall candles. They make me feel so warm and cozy inside and bring my nose so much happiness. Here is my list of candles for happy noses and cozy bedrooms:

Flannel – BBW

An OG for candle lovers everywhere – Flannel by BBW is going to fill up your space so quickly, you won’t even know when the Abercrombie model came in. JK. But this smells like a hot man and leaves. So, clearly you need to run out and get it now.


Pumpkin Cheesecake – BBW

No description necessary. It’s pumpkin cheesecake. You need it.



Cinnamon Pretzel Twist – BBW

My newfound favorite candle this fall is perfect for you if you’re not a big fan of pumpkin scents but love warm and cozy smelling candles. The pretzel gives it a little something to cut the sweetness and the cinnamon is everything. 


Midnight Woods – Scentsational at Target

You’ve got to run out and get this candle if you like a clean but cologne type smell. The smell is deep but not too strong and overwhelming like some musky candles are.



Cinnamon Spiced Vanilla – BBW


This one smells like the taste of Cinnamon Toast Crunch so if you like happiness and sugar in any capacity, this one is for you. It burns nice and smooth, so you don’t get overwhelmed with the cinnamon easily.


Cinnamon Chai Latte – The Collection at Target

Ok, this one is hands down the one. If I could have my entire house smelling like this stuff, I would. The reason I love this candle so much is because it legit smells like chai. Like authentic, desi chai. A lot of the “chai” scented candles are very — white washed? But in this scent, I smell the richness of the tea with the sweetness of the cinnamon. Also, if you look in the picture at the top of the post, the candle jar is so pretty as decor. Bonus!

Also, don’t let the picture above fool you. I have 4 of these candles and gave one away as a Secret Santa gift last year. Best believed this is my tried and true.


Do you think I like cinnamon in my fall candles? Can’t say I’ve noticed a pattern.

There they are. My pride and joy. I’ve actually got all 6 burning simultaneously in my bedroom as we speak.


Thanks for reading!



P.S. totally kidding on the 6 candles burning at once thing. Don’t do this at home. Autumn responsibly folks.
