Once you've lamented over another summer that has come and gone, it's time to start thinking about all of the things that make fall so great. There are cozy sweaters, apple desserts, and pumpkin-spiced drinks, to name a few. But, you don't need to be good at following pie recipes or go on a daily coffee run to enjoy all of the season's delicious smells.

Instead, bring the warm vibes of sweater weather into your home with a scented candle. Unlike an apple crisp or grande Pumpkin Spice Latte, candles stay fresh and last for days depending on how often you burn them. Not to mention, these votives come in chic vessels that basically double as decor.

From dark and moody florals to smoky wood, we've rounded up the 10 best scented candles to burn throughout the fall season.

Byredo Burning Rose

Summer might be over, but that doesn't mean you can't stop and smell the flowers. With notes of rose petals, rose absolute, violet, leather, and birch tree, Byredo's Burning Rose candle isn't your average floral scent. Instead, it combines classic rose with smoky woods and warm violet for a fall-like twist.

To buy: $85; nordstrom.com.

Homesick Apple Orchard

No activity screams fall quite like a trip to an apple orchard followed by baking a pie or cobbler. If you're hopeless in the kitchen, lighting an apple-scented candle while you eat your takeout is the next best option. Homesick's soy wax blend combines fresh red apples with spicy cinnamon and sweet sugar cane.
