As soon as the leaves start to change color many of us, myself included, love to break out the seasonal candles. Having your home filled with the scent of cinnamon, apples, pumpkin spice, and other fall scents just feels so cozy! Unfortunately some of the most popular candle brands out there aren’t cruelty free. I have done a lot of browsing and shopping and have narrowed down my list of favorite vegan candles for fall. These are the candles that I will be burning in my home this fall and winter.
Pacifica Mexican Cocoa – The best way to describe this scent is delicious. This is a yummy deep spiced chocolate scent with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and almonds. It’s really well balanced – not too sweet or too spicy. I’ve been really loving this candle and burning it often. I find the scent to be really soothing. For those who like sweet scents, this is a great options.
Lemon West Apple & Maple Bourbon – This candle has been burning pretty much non-stop since it first arrived. It smells amazing! It’s the perfect blend of apples and maple. It’s not too sweet not too fruity and not too crisp. It also has just a hint of spicy cinnamon. This is an amazing option for those who like the classic warm fall scents.
Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange – This citrus candle is great for those who like brighter and crisper scents. Tuscan Blood Orange is one of Pacifica’s most popular scents because it’s such a great fresh option. This is the perfect candle for those who want a slightly less traditional fall candle. A tip that I picked up from Pacifica is to burn the Tuscan Blood Orange and Mexican Cocoa candles at the same time for an even more delicious scent combination.
Lemon West Pumpkin Pie – For all you pumpkin lovers out there, this candle has you covered. Most pumpkin candles I find smell incredibly artificial, but this one is perfect. It smells like a fresh warm pumpkin pie in the best way possible. It has the notes of pumpkin and all the spices you find in a warm pumpkin pie like cinnamon and nutmeg. It’s a little on the sweeter side, but has enough spice to balance out.
Pacifica and Lemon West are my two favorite candle brands for good reason. Not only are their candles cruelty free and vegan, but the scents are wonderful. Their vegan candles don’t smell artificial and are high quality. I love the fall scents from both of these brands.
