RANKED: The 35 best Bath & Body Works fall candles 2021

It's the best time of the year — the Bath & Body Works 2021 fall candle collection is here!

1

Nothing says goodbye summer, hello fall like the release of the 2021 Bath & Body Works fall candle scents. And after the year we’ve had, some candle-induced relaxation is highly necessary.

Bath & Body Works’ iconic three-wick candles have got to be some of the store’s best-sellers of all time, and this year there are a few new scents as well.

All of these candles retail for $24.50 each, but keep an eye out for their occasional $10-off sales to stock up!

1. Leaves

Notes: Crisp Red Apple, Golden Nectar, Warm Clove Spice

bath and body works fall candles 2021 leaves

This is and will always be my number one Bath & Body Works fall candle scent. Leaves is the perfect autumn candle: Apple and nectar give it just a touch of sweetness while clove gives it depth. (It’s also Zoe Sugg‘s favorite, and you know you can trust her.)

2. The Perfect Autumn

Notes: Fresh Cranberry, Spiced Pumpkin, Crisp Apple, Rich Clove

bath and body works fall candles 2021 the perfect autumn

The Perfect Autumn’s strongest note is cranberry, but not in a sickly sweet kind of way. Bath & Body Works describes it as a combination of their Frosted Cranberry and Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin scents. I love it!

3. Sweater Weather

Notes: Fresh Sage, Juniper Berry, Aromatic Eucalyptus, Fresh Woods

bath and body works fall candles 2021 sweater weather

If you’re looking for a lighter, fresher scent in your fall candle, Sweater Weather is the one for you. Someone once described this scent as the way your car smells after a car wash, and that about sums it up. Clean and a bit masculine. The eucalyptus is my favorite note, and this candle will also smell seasonally appropriate going into the holiday season.

4. Flannel

Notes: Fresh Bergamot, Heirloom Mahogany, Soft Musk

bath and body works fall candles 2021 flannel

Cozy vibes: activated. Just the name of this scent is enough to get you in the autumn mood. Flannel is another one of Bath & Body Works’ more masculine fall scents, but who doesn’t want their house to smell like a hot guy in October? The description reads, “This is what chilly fall nights smell like.” Yessss.

5. Crisp Morning Air

Notes: Crisp Fall Breeze, White Oak, Golden Amber Wood, Saffron, Soft Sandalwood
*ONLINE EXCLUSIVE*

bath and body works fall candles 2021 crisp morning air

Crisp Morning Air is a real nature lover’s candle, with a woodsy, outdoorsy scent (hence the leaves art and green color). Don’t write this off as a Fresh Linen copy; it’s got more depth and warmth for fall.

6. Autumn Woods

Notes: Dark Walnut, English Lavender, White Amber

bath and body works fall candles 2021 autumn woods

I know it’s hard to keep all these names straight. Autumn Woods is another classic Bath & Body Works fall scent packaged for White Barn this year. A little edgier, with walnut and lavender — not your typical autumnal scent. Buy this one if you’re a Diptyque fan on a budget.

7. Dark Blue Night

Notes: Crisp Mountain Air, Fresh Lavender, a Touch of Musk
*NEW FOR 2021*

bath and body works fall candles 2021 dark blue night

A touch of musk, you say? Mixed with lavenderDark Blue Night brings that amazing balance of coolness and warmth that’s just so autumnal and relaxing.

8. Champagne Apple & Honey

Notes: Pink Lady Apple, Sparkling Champagne, Jasmine Honey

bath and body works fall candles 2021 champagne apple and honey

Champagne Apple & Honey had its trial run as body care in 2019, and it became so popular that the brilliant people at B&BW decided to turn it into a candle for 2020 and now 2021. Boy, are we glad they did. I’m a sucker for champagne scents around New Years, but paired with apple and honey, it becomes perfect for fall.

9. Cranberry Woods

Notes: Tart Cranberry, Cinnamon Bark, Forest Cedar, Golden Amber

bath and body works fall candles 2021 cranberry woods

Cranberry-scented anything always scares me off, but Cranberry Woods is perfectly balanced by cinnamon, cedar, and amber. I enjoyed it all last fall, and now I’m hooked. It’s a combination of fruity and woodsy that just screams crisp fall afternoon.

10. Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin

Notes: Warm Cinnamon, Fresh Ground Clove, Vanilla Cream, Brown Sugar

bath and body works fall candles 2021 sweet cinnamon pumpkin

I had Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin hand soap in my powder room last fall, and every single person who used it remarked on how incredible it smelled. Despite the name, this scent doesn’t actually have any notes of pumpkin, but it does have delicious cinnamon, clove, vanilla, and brown sugar. Plus, year after year, it always has the cutest jar design!

11. Almond Blossom

Notes: Sweet Almond Blossom, Vanilla Orchid, Sandalwood

bath and body works fall candles 2021 almond blossom

Another one that’s not your typical autumnal scent, but the combination of notes makes it perfect for the season. Almond Blossom is sweet and nutty, and Bath & Body Works die-hards have been begging the company to make it a year-round staple — it’s that good.

12. Pumpkin Apple

Notes: Red Delicious Apple, Fall Pumpkin, Fresh Ground Cinnamon, Clove Buds

bath and body works fall candles 2021 pumpkin apple

Here’s the true pumpkin scent you were looking for, combined with apples to make the perfect autumn candle. Pumpkin Apple throws in some cinnamon and cloves, too! This is a great kitchen candle.

13. White Pumpkin

Notes: Gingered White Pumpkin, Caramel Glaze, Warm Blended Spices

bath and body works fall candles 2021 white pumpkin

White Pumpkin is such a VIBE. I’ll admit it’s on the sweeter side, but I just love the look of the candle jar surrounded by tiny white pumpkins. Sue me?

14. Autumn Adventure

Notes: Bright Citrus, Warm Cedarwood, Fresh Mint
*NEW FOR 2021*

bath and body works fall candles 2021 autumn adventure

Let’s go on an Autumn Adventure already! The unusual addition of mint gives the classic scents of fall a crisp touch.

15. Vanilla Birch

Notes: White Birch Bark, Madagascar Vanilla, Warm Sandalwood

bath and body works fall candles 2021 vanilla birch

Woodsy, yet sweet! Vanilla Birch is not an overwhelming scent, in case you like a more subtle autumn candle for your home.

16. Fall Farmhouse

Notes: Spiced Pumpkin, Forest Pine Branch, Fresh Fall Air
*ONLINE EXCLUSIVE*

bath and body works fall candles 2021 fall farmhouse

First of all, I love the name of this scent and I love the jar design. Bath & Body Works describes Fall Farmhouse as, “Hayrides. Corn mazes. Scarecrows. It’s officially fall at the farmhouse.” Joanna Gaines, is that you?

17. Fresh Fall Morning

Notes: Citrus Zest, Woodland Sage, Red Delicious Apples

bath and body works fall candles 2021 fresh fall morning

Fresh Fall Morning has a touch of autumnal citrus blended with sage and apples; scent-wise, it’s a tad more on the masculine side.

18. Marshmallow Fireside

Notes: Toasted Marshmallow, Smoldering Woods, Fire Roasted Vanilla, Crystallized Amber

bath and body works fall candles 2021 marshmallow fireside

Transport yourself to the feeling of being beside a roaring campfire, toasting marshmallows with friends and family. Marshmallow Fireside is a smoky, sweet scent.

19. Open Sky

Notes: Fresh Air, Wild Blackberries, Soft Violet, a Cloud of Comforting Vanilla
*NEW FOR 2021*

bath and body works fall candles 2021 open sky

As if I wasn’t obsessed enough with the luminary jar design, Open Sky sold me on the “cloud of comforting vanilla.” It’s like B&BW knew we’ve been having a tough time.

20. Caramel Pumpkin Swirl

Notes: Luscious Caramel, Ground Cinnamon, Rich Brown Sugar, Creamy Vanilla

bath and body works fall candles 2021 caramel pumpkin swirl

Just picture lighting Caramel Pumpkin Swirl in the mornings while you sip your coffee. You just have the fight the temptation to melt it down and pour it in your cup.

21. Vanilla Pumpkin Marshmallow

Notes: Tahitian Vanilla, Pumpkin Spice, Homemade Marshmallow, Drizzled Caramel

bath and body works fall candles 2021 vanilla pumpkin marshmallow

I would’ve thought this one was too sweet, but Vanilla Pumpkin Marshmallow is like a slice of warm pumpkin loaf and not as overwhelming as it sounds!

22. Cinnamon Stick

Notes: Cinnamon, Clove Bud, Nutmeg
*ONLINE EXCLUSIVE*
bath and body works fall candles 2021 cinnamon stick

This candle isn’t pretending to be anything it’s not. Cinnamon Stick smells like, well, a cinnamon stick. And if that’s not autumnal, then what is?

23. Mahogany Teakwood

Notes: Rich Mahogany, Black Teakwood, Dark Oak, Frosted Lavender

bath and body works fall candles 2021 mahogany teakwood

Mahogany Teakwood is a timeless fan favorite, with 180+ five-star reviews. Another one that’s been moved over to White Barn this year. It’s more on the dark, musky cologne side.

24. Cozy Cashmere

Notes: Smooth Lavender, Warm Vanilla, Comforting Sandalwood

bath and body works fall candles 2021 cozy cashmere

Sandalwood always smells expensive to me, and Cozy Cashmere is like a pricy sweater without the cost. This scent also isn’t exclusively fall and will easily carry you into the winter months.

25. Harvest Gathering

Notes: Fresh Picked Apple, Autumn Berries, Clove Buds

bath and body works fall candles 2021 harvest gathering

Half fruity, half spicy — Harvest Gathering is the quintessential fall candle. Just maybe a tad on the boring side.

26. Harvest Pomegranate

Notes: Rich Pomegranate, Freshly Picked Apples, Sweet Black Plums
*NEW FOR 2021*

bath and body works fall candles 2021 harvest pomegranate

Hello, Thanksgiving table! Harvest Pomegranate is fruity, warm, and sweet.

27. Pumpkin Clove

Notes: Clove Buds, Ground Cinnamon, A Pinch of Nutmeg, Fresh Pumpkin

bath and body works fall candles 2021 pumpkin clove

If you are a pumpkin spice latte lover, boy, have I got the candle for you. Pumpkin Clove is here to give you that Starbucks feeling all season long.

28. Mahogany Apple

Notes: Red Mahogany Woods, Golden Delicious Apple, Pink Peppercorn, Fresh Lavender Sprigs

bath and body works fall candles 2021 mahogany apple

More of a green apple fan than red? Mahogany Apple even has a green jar to set the mood. Fresh apple and lavender is offset by masculine woody mahogany and peppercorns.

29. Lakeside Morning

Notes: Crisp Autumn Air, White Driftwood, a Hint of Green Apple

bath and body works fall candles 2021 lakeside morning

Maybe autumn smells more like fresh mountain air to you. Lakeside Morning is like that deep breath you take when you open your cabin door with a mug of coffee in your hand after a rainy night. Plus, how beautiful is the color of the jar?!

30. Pumpkin Pecan Waffles

Notes: Maple Syrup, Golden Waffles, Pumpkin Spice, Brown Sugar

bath and body works fall candles 2021 pumpkin pecan waffles

These “food” candles are always just a bit too sickly sweet for me. But Pumpkin Pecan Waffles does sound good enough to eat (please don’t).

31. Warm Apple Pie

Notes: Baked Granny Smith Apple, Melted Brown Sugar, Flaky Homemade Crust

bath and body works fall candles 2021 warm apple pie

Smells too fake. Do yourself a favor and buy a real apple pie instead of Warm Apple Pie.

32. Fireside

Notes: Smoked Cedar, Fresh Clove Bud, Warm Embers
*ONLINE EXCLUSIVE*

bath and body works fall candles 2021 fireside

Is Fireside reminiscent of a warm, cozy winter night — or an ashtray? It’s for you to decide, except it’s an online-only candle, so you can’t smell it first. Yikes.

33. Blueberry Maple Pancakes

Notes: Wild Blueberries, Griddle Fresh Pancakes, Warm Maple Syrup

bath and body works fall candles 2021 blueberry maples pancakes

I don’t know what’s more alarming, the notes or the electric blue color. Reviewers love this scent, but I just can’t.

34. Banana Walnut Muffin

Notes: Sweet Banana, Golden Nutmeg, Cinnamon Sugar Muffin

bath and body works fall candles 2021 banana walnut muffin

I’M SORRY, but just reading the notes gives me a headache. And I don’t find anything about banana muffins particularly autumnal.

35. Pumpkin Vanilla Creme

Notes: Creamy Pumpkin, Vanilla Crème, Fresh Ground Nutmeg, Graham Cracker Crust

bath and body works fall candles 2021 pumpkin vanilla creme

This usual fan-favorite is being trashed this year! Is it just a bad batch, or has the formula changed? Definitely safer to sniff your own Pumpkin Vanilla Creme candle and purchase in-store.

The entire Bath & Body Works fall 2021 collection can be found here.
