What are the best fall candle scents?
Doesn’t everyone want to know? Among my favorite fall candle scents are:
- Harvest Spice
- Apple Cider
- Pumpkin & Persimmon
- Warm Vanilla Sugar
- Maple Syrup
- Pumpkin Pie
I like to use all-natural fragrance oils composed of aromatic isolates from nature and essential oils in my fall candles. Like essential oils, they have zero additives. And they do not contain parabens and phthalates. I find them to be an affordable candle making supply. But, no matter your choice, I know these scents make the best fall candles!

Creative ideas on how to decorate your farmhouse this fall using candles!
Decorating for fall is always something I look forward to. Gourds and pumpkins handpicked from father’s garden, beeswax dipped preserved fall leaves or those my daughter and I have pressed in our flower presses, acorns and hedge balls we’ve foraged from our woodlands and other natural elements always find their way into our farmhouse fall decor.
But, most of all, I think it’s the aromas of autumn I enjoy most. And you have a lot of options when it comes to incorporating fall candles into your farmhouse decor.
However, if there is one thing I’ve learned to have on-hand for farmhouse decor it’s white candles. They are so versatile and easy to pair with other fall decorating elements (you’ll see what I mean soon). Not to mention, you can reuse them in all your seasonal decor. Let me share these creative ideas for decorating your farmhouse this fall with candles.

A coffee table vignette is a simple way of decorating your living room this fall. Candles can give a bit of texture to your decor if they have a bit of patina like the ones used here.
These DIY concrete pumpkin candle votives are a simple craft you can have ready in no time. Since they are small, each is perfect for tablescapes as they won’t take too much space on your coffee or dining table.
Before the holiday season arrives, take just 30 minutes to create your favorite fall flavors like baked apples and cinnamon or warm vanilla sugar and sandalwood into homemade wax melts. I love that there is no container or wick needed to make DIY wax melts.
If you have a lot of shiplap walls (I envy you) or white in your home using a group of tall orange candlesticks can give dimension to your vignette. Especially when you pair them with rugged gourds.
The sweet, spicy aroma of popular pumpkin spice is a must-have fall scent! All it takes is a few essential oils to make these natural pumpkin spice candles for your farmhouse fall decor.
Here is another wonderful idea for incorporating white candles into a rustic fall tablescape: lanterns! These would go great for an outdoor table as well if you are planning a fall harvest or Thanksgiving dinner outside.
Take a few plain terracotta pots and turn them into rustic candle votive holders with a simple stencil and paint. Then fill them with whole coffee beans and cinnamon sticks to create the most magical DIY fall home scent. This would make a great fall home school project too.
A wheat centerpiece and two short white candles totally transform this dining table for autumn. And the cute pumpkin-themed copper candle holders really make those white candles pop.
