Slow down Christmas candles, it's not your turn yet. We're excited about gingerbread and sugar cookie candles, but it's the time of the year for lighting autumn-scented candles and Halloween candles. Now, don't feel pressured to put out the giant inflatable Halloween decor if it's not your style, but feel free to place some pumpkin spice and spooky candles around the house to get you in the fall and Halloween spirit. Here are three for Halloween fanatics, and of course, pumpkin lovers.

1. Best Pumpkin-Scented Candle

Yankee Candle Spiced Pumpkin Scented - Amazon, $14.30 

Is it even fall if you don't have a pumpkin candle? This bestseller is a must-have for those who love fall. Light this candle after cleaning, before a bubble bath, or anytime you get a craving for pumpkin! I can't wait to turn on Hocus Pocus and smell this candle.

2. A Candle for a Spooky Aesthetic

Yankee Candle Large 2016 Limited Edition BLACK MAGIC - Amazon, $31.36

Fall candles don't always mean pumpkin spice. If you're not a fan of sweet candles (and want a black candle for the spooky home decor aesthetic), consider this black magic-scented candle. An Amazon customer gave it five stars and said it smells like leather and smoke. Also consider: Yankee Candle's Enchanted Moon & Witches' Brew candles.

3. Best Sweet-Scented Candle

Candy Corn, Fall Scented Soy Candle Tin (6 oz), Halloween Candle - Amazon, $12.99

Enjoy the sweet scent of candy aroma for up to 30 hours! This sweet candy corn candle has notes of caramel, butter, and honey. Yum! This is a great option if you're not into pumpkin-scented candles. It's made with essential oils and plant extracts, perfect if you're super picky about candles. It has a lead-free wick as well. The made in the USA candle has a recyclable tin, so be sure to recycle or find a cool way to reuse it. The tin decor is super cute and will look fabulous on nightstands.
