Whether you opt for a pumpkin candle to get you in the mood for Halloween, or a spicy cinnamon candle that will take centre stage on your fireplace, we've got you covered with all the best that we could find.
The great thing is, most of these scents will even see you through into winter. They're a fab choice of Christmas gift, because who doesn't like candles? And alternatively, they could be a nice little treat for yourself as well. Oh, go on then.
