4. Rewined Spiced Cider Soy Candle
5. Capri Blue Marbled Glass Candle in Volcano
Ever wonder exactly which candle is responsible for that beyond amazing scent filling every Anthropologie store? It's the Capri Blue Volcano fragrance, and although it tips toward the tropical end of the scale with fruit and citrus notes, it's one that works year-round.

Because it's not really fall until someone breaks out a pumpkin-scented candle, right?
Bath and Body Works | $15
