Avoid These Cliché Candle Scents: Expert Recommendations for a Unique Autumn Atmosphere

Popular Autumn Candle Scents

As autumn arrives, there’s no better way to embrace the season than by lighting a scented candle and creating a cozy ambiance indoors.

However, some of the most popular autumn-themed candle scents may not offer the unique, luxurious fragrance you desire.

Jennifer Sturgill, co-founder of US-based Unplug Soy Candles, shares her insights on these overdone fragrances and suggests more sophisticated alternatives for a distinctive fall atmosphere.

1. Pumpkin Spice: A Cliché to Avoid

Pumpkin spice, with its warm blend of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove, is an autumn favorite. However, Heidi Stojanovic, co-founder of Foton Candles, considers it a cliché that might overwhelm your living space.

To maintain a cozy atmosphere without going overboard, consider a more neutral scent like cardamom, known for its luxurious aroma.

Cardamom is a spice derived from the seeds of select plants and can add a touch of opulence to your home.

2. Sugar Cookie: Not Quite Sophisticated

While sugar cookie is a popular seasonal scent, it may not exude sophistication. The notes of warm buttery vanilla sugar can be overpowering.

Instead, opt for scents like suede or leather to create a warm and cozy ambiance without turning your home into a bakery.

Despite being an unexpected choice for autumn, these scents can infuse your home with an upscale and sophisticated atmosphere.

3. Apple Pie: Lacking Depth

The scent of warm apple pie straight from the oven is a comforting classic. However, in candle form, it may lack the depth and dimension desired for a luxurious fragrance.

Jennifer recommends exploring more natural fruit aromas, such as fresh apples, figs, or berries. These scents avoid the artificial, over-manufactured feel and offer naturally sweet tones that nod to seasonal foods.

4. Caramel Toffee: Sweet, But Not for Candles

While the sweet scent of caramel can be mouthwatering, experts advise against using it in candle form.

Instead, consider a cinnamon-scented candle as a delightful alternative, evoking memories of freshly-baked sticky buns in the morning.

Some woodier spices can also envelop your space in a warm embrace, creating a luxurious ambiance that lasts from autumn through Christmas.

Choose your candle scents thoughtfully to create a distinctive and refined atmosphere in your home this autumn.
