After all, this season is all about great smells: the sweet scent of pumpkin spice, woodsmoke on a chilly night, a hearty soup simmering on the stove. And in our humble, candle-hoarding opinion, no cosy night in is complete without a lit votive or two. They can transport you from your cramped, dingy living room to an idyllic log cabin, a cake shop selling fresh pumpkin pies or a crisp walk through an apple orchard.
To help you get fully into the autumn mood, wherever you're spending it, we've rounded up the very best scented candles on the market. Some are familiar favourites from cult brands like Diptyque, Jo Malone and NEOM: signature scents that we return to year after year to usher in the new season. Others are exciting newcomers in our rotation.
