  • Yankee large jar candle has paraffin-grade wax that delivers a clear, consistent burn
  • 110-150 hours burn time
  • Holiday candle measures 6.6″ x 4″

This candle is adored by Ellen DeGeneres, who once raved: “Can’t get enough of the best smell of fall? Look no further. Tip of the day: do not eat.” With 110-to-150 hours burn time, this holiday candle will see you through the fall season with a pleasant smelling home.

Feu de Bois/Wood Fire Candle

candles for fall

$36.00–$68.00, Nordstrom

Why we like it:

  • Woody scent
  • 2.5 Oz or 6.5 Oz
  • Made in France

With a rich history of making the perfect-smelling candles, Diptyque candles are recognizable just by sitting on the mantelpiece. With sophisticated tones released into the atmosphere, and a nostalgic feeling of wondering through forestry.

One reviewer wrote: “I had read many different reviews that raved about Diptyque’s candles, so decided to give them a whirl. I went with the Feu de Bois scent because one review aptly described it as “woodsy.” I feared it would be a bit too musky, but it is the perfect balance of woodsy and freshness than I ever imagined it could be. I purchased it a couple of weeks ago, and have lit it every evening. I LOVE IT! Such wonderful quality. It has burned semi-slowly (I purchased the smaller size and after 2 weeks of frequent use, it is halfway burned down). I will definitely be trying out their other scents. This is the only candle brand I’ll ever use again!”

  • Non-Toxic and contains no lead, plastics, paraben, synthetic dyes or phthalates,

Built on a foundation of vanilla, tonka bean, and sugar tones, this candle builds multiple layers of delightful scents, with a slightly stronger message of ginger, cinnamon, and clove. We especially love signature pumpkin and nutmeg tones, perfect for the fall season.

One reviewer wrote: “I absolutely love this candle/scent! I was a little hesitant to buy it at first since you can’t smell it first (being an online purchase and all) but I love pumpkin candles so I took a risk and I’m glad I did! It perfectly encapsulates the fall season, it smells like pumpkin (obviously) but not overwhelmingly so. I absolutely recommend this candle if you’re looking for a nice fall candle, and it’s a pretty large candle too which is great!”
