6 of the best pumpkin candles that will make you want to pull out your sweaters and wrap up in a blanket

Nothing smells like fall than the warm scent of a pumpkin candle. You can’t help but feel a little bit cozier after smelling pumpkin mixed with spices like nutmeg, clove or cinnamon. That said, some candles are better than others.

I love pumpkin candles and have collected quite a few over the years. Actually, I love anything pumpkin-scented. I recently got a Pura Smart Home Diffuser, and I’m already stocking up on pumpkin spice oils to add to my collection.

That said, I’ve used my experience to round up what I consider the best pumpkin candles for your home. They’re all strong enough that you’ll really smell the pumpkin, and most come in a pretty jar worth showing off.

1. Capri Blue Pumpkin Clove Jar Candle, $38

Capri Blue may be known for its Volcano-scented candle that burns in Anthropologie’s stores. However, the brand also has an equally addictive Pumpkin Clove scent. It smells like pumpkin with a hint of vanilla and cinnamon (pretty much pumpkin pie), but a bit of orange zest adds brightness.

2. Voluspa Spiced Pumpkin Latte Japonica Jar Candle, $36

I have yet to find a Voluspa scent I don’t like. This limited-edition pumpkin spiced latte scent has notes of kabocha pumpkin with warm spices mixed with smaller notes of creamy coconut milk and vanilla marshmallow. It smells pretty much like the name suggests: pumpkin spice latte.

3. Nest New York Pumpkin Chai Classic Candle, $48

Nest New York is known for its luxury scented candles. Its Pumpkin Chai candle smells like pumpkin, spicy masala chai, cardamom, ginger and cinnamon. Imagine the scent of chai tea mixed with pumpkin. According to the brand’s product description, it uses a proprietary premium wax in its candles that makes them burn cleanly and evenly.

4. P.F. Candle Co. Spiced Pumpkin, $24

Like all of P.F. Candle Co.’s candles, its Spiced Pumpkin scent comes in a pretty amber-colored jar that fits in with most home decors. The scent includes notes of pumpkin pie, nutmeg, cinnamon and brown sugar. If you don’t want a bright orange candle on display, this one may be more your style.

5. Threshold Brushed Abstract Pumpkin Ceramic with Woodwick Pumpkin Woods Candle, $15

Target released a range of fall-scented candles in this pretty ceramic pumpkin-shaped jar, and its wood wick allows them to flicker and crackle like a mini fireplace. The Pumpkin Woods scent blends pumpkin with woodsy notes of mahogany, so its not overly sweet.

6. Target Opalhouse Lidded Glass Jar Heritage Pumpkin Candle, $15

This may be one of my all-time favorite pumpkin spice candles. I first smelled it at an open house while looking for a new home, and I kept thinking about it afterward. I actually called the realtor to ask its name. Heritage Pumpkin smells like pumpkin, cream and coconut. But don’t let the coconut throw you — this candle doesn’t smell overly sweet, just rich, spicy and super cozy.
