Halloween Hygge: 2022 Guide to Our Essential Autumn Book Candles

Autumn Reading with Candles -- Cozy Fall Candles -- Autumn Book Candles

How do you get an autumn aesthetic? 

Autumn is my favorite time of year. 

Since you’re reading a blog on a book candle website, chances are you’re a fall person, too.

Cozy cardigans, fuzzy socks, cups of tea – rainy afternoons spent with your favorite book – is there anything better?

I also love my autumn rituals.

Getting out your jacket and your favorite sweaters. Putting on a pot of chili – baking some cookies.

Candles are also part of my fall ritual – in expectation of the cool evenings and longer nights.

So we put together this handy dandy guide to our extra special fall book candles. Most of them are seasonal and will disappear after Halloween – until next year – when autumn rolls around again.

What is the best fall candle scent?

While the answer to that question is purely subjective depending on your tastes…

We’ve gotta say – we are in LOVE with September’s Candle of the Month – Nutmeg, Ginger + Apple Snaps – inspired by Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr. Fox

Fantastic Mr. Fox Autumn Book Candle -- Cozy Fall Candle -- Bookish Autumn Aesthetic

This cozy autumn book candle is inspired by Mr. Fox’s stolen apple cider – and autumnal forest setting. And it hits you right in the nostalgic fall feels.

The first thing you smell is crisp red apple – mixed with spicy notes of nutmeg and ginger – followed by a whisper of cinnamon sugar. 

A dollop of toasted vanilla – and a touch of molasses – adds a comforting finish.

Nutmeg, Ginger + Apple Snaps is a little jar of autumn ambiance.

What is the most popular fall candle scent?

I think we all know it’s Pumpkin Spice. And everyone needs a good pumpkin spice candle for their autumn collection.

Why don’t you celebrate this classic pumpkin scent with everyone’s favorite childhood pumpkin story:

Charles Schultz’s It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!

Our comforting blend of creamy pumpkin – mixed with spicy cinnamon and nutmeg – is the ideal companion for a cozy autumn evening.

The Great Pumpkin – give your pumpkin spice vibes a bookish touch.

How can I be cozy in the fall?

The easiest way? 

Try our Harvest Pack – a mini-collection of three delightful autumn book candles. 

Harvest Book Candle Bundle -- Autumn Book Candle Set -- Autumn Cottagecore Aesthetic

The first candle in our celebration of the autumn harvest? 

An ode to the apple.

MacIntosh Apple – inspired by Shel Silverstein’s The Giving Tree – is a nostalgic book candle with the clean, crisp scent of fresh-picked apple.

Our Harvest Candle Bundle also celebrates the mighty yam – with Feast of the New Yam – inspired by Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart

In the novel, the Feast of the New Yam is a celebration of life, and yams are an important symbol of wealth and ability. 

This one-of-a-kind scent is a celebration of autumn – not the yams from your Thanksgiving table.

Think mildly-sweet earthiness – like fresh pumpkin – blended with the bright green notes of palm leaves. We add a hint of pepper and cassia for a touch of spice. It is fall, after all.

And the third autumn candle in our Harvest Pack? Our signature pumpkin spice scent – inspired by It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!

How do I get Halloween vibes?

Try one of our super-sized, double wicked Halloween book candles – chock full of Millennial nostalgia.

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark – the terrifying trilogy by Alvin Schwartz – gave us all spine-tingling childhood scares. 

These ghoulish tales draw heavily on folklore and urban legend – so we wanted a scent as spooky as the stories.

Inspired by an autumn evening in a graveyard – Churned Earth & Funeral Pyre sets the mood for a night of fright!

Skeletons dancing cartoon -- Nostalgic Halloween Aesthetic -- Halloween Nostalgia

The churchyard aromas of an open grave – soil, rain, and wild grasses – mingle with smoky pine, juniper, and cedarwood – to conjure an eerie autumn ambiance.

Churned Earth & Funeral Pyre will haunt you all spooky season.

Goosebumps Halloween Book Candle & Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark Halloween Book Candle -- Nostalgic Spooky Season Candles











For more childhood Halloween nostalgia, we have a Goosebumps candle!

The label art is inspired by the iconic cover imagery – we’ve got the gnomes!

And the scent is our take on cozy Caramel Apple.

This Goosebumps candle will hit you right in the nostalgic autumn feels. 

Flying Jack-o-lanterns -- Dark Halloween Vibes -- Spooky Halloween Aesthetic

So pull out your tatty old copy of Why I’m Afraid of Bees – and light frightfully delightful Caramel Apple

Re-live that youthful scare. 

What candle smells like Halloween?

Horseman's Cup -- Halloween Book Candle inspired by the Legend of Sleepy Hollow -- Headless Horseman Halloween Candle













 Horseman’s Cup evokes the feeling – of walking down a country lane – on a crisp October evening. 

In Sleepy Hollow, perhaps? Maybe even on Halloween night.

 Headless Horseman -- Spooky Halloween Aesthetic -- Dark Halloween Aesthetic








The earthy fragrance of fresh-fallen leaves blends with the cozy aroma of creamy pumpkin and toasted spice – with a whisper of smoky bonfire.

Horseman’s Cup is an autumn evening in a jar.

You’ll love burning it all spooky season.

Or set a dark Halloween vibe with a sinister potion from the Apothecary.

Witches’ Brew – an autumn candle inspired by Shakespeare’s Macbeth – creates a spooky mood at any Halloween party…

Or gathering with your coven.

Our Witches’ Brew tempts your senses with the fragrance of spiced harvest fruit – cranberry, apple, and fig – blended with exotic saffron.

We finish this nostrum with a touch of mysterious black amber.

Add an unearthly edge to your autumn ambiance with Witches' Brew.

What candle smells like sweater weather?

After a bit of deliberation – I think it’s Breakfast Tea & Knitting Wool – a mystery book candle inspired by Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple.

Miss Marple Book Candle -- Agatha Christie Candle -- Bookish Stocking Stuffer for Agatha Christie Reader

Our inspiration for this book candle comes from Miss Marple’s tendency to watch – unnoticed – as she knits and takes her afternoon tea. 

The scent? All about getting cozy.

First, you smell the comforting fragrance of English Breakfast tea – with a dash of cream. 

To up the snuggly vibe, we round out the comforting aroma with hints of flannel and clean cotton – and a whisper of soft musk.

You’ll think you’re under your favorite blanket with a warm cup of tea – snug as a bug in a rug.
