Simply the thought of lighting a candle can immediately conjure up a mood. For some, the ideal scent may be a fragrant and floral option, while others may picture fresh and clean. Many might now be gravitating toward woody aromas, or wanting to get wrapped up in the comforting smells of pine and cinnamon that call to mind the holidays. Point is, no matter which way they’re served up, there are candles to complement the vibe of any person and environment.

With fall in full swing, it’s prime time to stock up on seasonal and earthy, wood-filled scents from the likes of Le Labo and Cander Paris. Of course, fresh and fruity options are still just as readily available, and just as delectable, with options from labels such as Diptyque and Otherland the perfect way to brighten up a space in the gloomier weather.

But really, is there ever a bad time to buy a new candle? To make the selection easier, HYPEBEAST has rounded up a few favorites from each category. Below are 15 candles across the board to freshen up any space.

WOODY & EARTHY

Choosing a candle is sometimes about becoming one with nature — or at least somewhat bringing it home. Le Labo’s signature Palo Santo 14 offers a classic choice with notes of cedarwood and labdanum, while Seletti’s Entropy plays up tomato and pink pepper for a spicier approach to this category.

SEASONAL

Tis the season for whiffs of pine needles and cinnamon (and maybe even MALIN + GOETZ’s Dark Rum) to infiltrate homes and set the ambiance this fall and winter.

FRESH

The ones that make you go “ahhh.” Clean like laundry or fresh like rain, it’s hard to go wrong with an airy scent where it’s not uncommon for citrusy undertones to seep through. Take for example the orange and lemon hits in Acqua di Parma’s Luce Di Colonia, which fuse with patchouli and neroli oil to give off just the right amount of zest.

FRAGRANT & FLORAL

Luscious and tantalizing, the most fragrant, fruity and floral notes lend themselves to a specific palate. The rose-infused mixture behind Diptyque’s Bais candle skews more subtle, while the peach blossom and Asian pear blend of Boy Smells’ LES candle offers a stronger take.
