These Fall Candles Were Made For The Soft Life Girlies

It’s time to put your phone on do not disturb and set the mood to unwind! I’m sure you’ve had an exhausting day and want nothing more than to relax in the comfiest pajamas, burn a fall candle, and watch your favorite rom-com. Like so many Gen-Zers, you’ve officially entered the soft life. This isn’t just a trend on social media, it’s a lifestyle of cool, calm, and collectiveness. Nothing can or will disturb your peace. 

The final step in setting the mood to become a real soft-life girly is scent. The perfect candle is essential to letting your mind escape, and it can spruce up your living space. Whether you’re in your first apartment or a dorm room (watch out for your RA — burn your candles responsibly), candles can elevate your mood tremendously. There are so many incredible fall scents to choose from, you won’t want to miss out on these. Psst… they also make for great gifts around the holidays. So if you’re looking to complete the soft life of your dreams, here are five fall candles to pick up this season.

FORVR Mood Champagne Showers ($42)

Jackie Aina remains the Queen of Beauty Vloggers on YouTube. But her expertise in makeup is just as fabulous as her talents in interior design. For the last three years, she’s showered fans with luscious scents from her and her fiancé’s candle company, FORVR Mood. This best-selling candle smells of fresh citrus with key notes of bergamot, peach fizz, and creamy woods. It’ll be perfect for the girlies who love a fresher take on those warm scents of the season. 

PINK Warm Vanilla Candle ($20)

Victoria’s Secret PINK recently revamped its entire body care line. New packaging and new scents, oh my! Warm Vanilla smells like one big marshmallow, with accompanying notes of pumpkin cream and shaved cinnamon. Not to mention, this scent also comes in a lotion and a mist. 

Maison Margiela REPLICA By The Fireplace ($70) 

This Maison Margiela scent will certainly fill any room you place it in. It’s a unique aroma with balancing scents of vanilla accord, chestnut accord, and clove oil. I promise you won’t be disappointed with the warm and spicy mix! 

Bath & Body Works Mahogany Teakwood Intense ($27) 

Bath & Body Works is known for its irresistible fall scents and its holiday sales, which are right around the corner! Mahogany Teakwood Intense is a tantalizing blend of the richest mahogany, black teakwood, dark oak, and the tiniest bit of frosted lavender. It’ll also make for the loveliest gift, as it comes with a decorative lid. 

Threshold Pumpkin Spice Candle ($10) 

Packaging is everything, and so is a good pumpkin-scented candle! This candle features notes of orange, vanilla, and of course, pumpkin spice. It’s a beautiful blend, not to mention it comes in the cutest glass pumpkin.
