Smell That? Rue Associates Share Their Favorite Fall Candle Scents

The quickest way to warm up a room? With the addition of a richly scented candle. Here, we asked Rue associates to share their go-to scents for the fast-approaching autumn season.


“Apple cinnamon. I’m a fan of this scent year-round, but as soon as the crisp weather hits, anything apple has me completely crazy with thoughts of mulled cider and my mom’s apple pie.”
– Alex T., Feature Writer

“I love Archipelago’s ‘Havana.’  It’s tobacco leaf, bergamot, and ylang-ylang. A great scent for the fall, it always conjures up images of a cozy library, leather club chairs, and a thick classic novel.”
– Michael M., General Manager, Rue Living

“I’m not one to choose my candle scents based on the season. It might be fall outside, but inside, I like my room to always smell like spring-fresh lilies.”
– Abigail K., Editor

Anything with a hint of pumpkin or cinnamon is the best – evoking memories of Thanksgiving dinners, country cider mills, and that ever-coveted pumpkin spice latte.”
– Jennifer M., Event Producer, Experiences

I have a red apple wreath candle in my kitchen. I don’t always get to go apple picking in the fall, so it’s nice to light it in the apartment to make it feel like autumn. It’s also great at Christmas time.”
– Megan C., Event Coordinator
