Cinnamon, pumpkin, and apples, oh my! Fall is just around the corner which means pumpkin is everywhere. It’s in our lattes, on our paper products, and even in the air. Target, Yankee Candle, and Bath & Body Works released their fall lines. I smelled them all so you don’t have to. This year, I noticed some new scent trends. Aside from a real push for cranberry + marshmallow – which I am here for – vanilla is a big accent smell. Every store I went to had a variety of pumpkin vanilla. Other fall scent trends that seem to be new this year are bourbon + maple. Check out my round-up of the best fall candles of 2018.
The Best Fall Candles
- Bourbon Infused Vanilla Sugar, Yankee Candle (HomeGoods) – surprisingly, this has more than just notes of just vanilla + bourbon, it also has highlights of apple, nutmeg, cloves, and brown sugar.
- Blueberry Maple Pancakes, Bath & Body Works – wild blueberries + maple syrup are complemented by the scent of griddle fresh pancakes.
- Sweet Seduction, Yankee Candle – this Halloween scent is a mix of vanilla cream, luscious caramel, and rum.
- Warm Luxe Cashmere, Yankee Candle – this is more of a wintery scent with notes of vanilla cream, cashmere, velvet petals, sandalwood, amber silk, winter iris, and patchouli.
- Vanilla Bourbon, Target (Chesapeake Bay Candles) – this candle has the classic scent of pumpkin with the sweetness + richness of bourbon accents. I’d wager it is the best pumpkin candle this season!

Bonus: I got the best small lotions + body sprays from Bath & Body Works. I haven’t shopped there since high school, but I couldn’t resist. For the next few months, I’ll be smelling like Marshmellow Pumpkin Latte (I WISH they made into a candle), Sugared Cranberry Cider, and Bonfire Bash.
