The Best
Affordable Candles
for Fall

Luxurious vibes for a lot less money

The more time you spend in your home, the nicer you want it to feel. Fall inevitably brings us all indoors but this year, we'll no doubt be at home more than usual. A flickering candle not only sets a serene mood, but it clears the air (literally) by imbuing a room with a fragrance. During the cooler months, we want a candle that's rich and woody. Imagine a stylish A-frame cabin, tucked under a canopy of towering pine trees, enjoying a nice bourbon from your leather club chair. That's the vibe we're going for—and thankfully, you don't have to spend a lot to get that feeling of indulgence. Of course, there are some really expensive candles. But sometimes that feels like you're literally burning money. We rounded up the best affordable candles—nothing over $50—that all smell fantastic and still feel luxurious as hell.

The first burn is important. You want to liquefy the entire top layer of wax so that your candle burns down evenly. This usually takes about an hour, at least.
