While in the summertime you may want your home to smell like a fresh bouquet of flowers, come fall and winter, cozy, sweet aromas are where it's at. Here, find five sweet-scented candles guaranteed to make you think of your favorite dessert — and remind you why this is the best time of year.

Viktor & Rolf Bon Bon Candle 

With delicious notes of caramel, this luxurious candle makes your home smell like there’s a cake baking in the oven. But it doesn’t have that overly sweet sugar scent; it’s softer, like an elegant perfume. 

Diptyque Amber Feather Candle 

What’s a holiday dessert without a dash of cinnamon? Formulated with orange, amber, ginger and cinnamon, this candle smells so good you’ll be tempted to eat it. It’s comforting and the addition of fun, holiday packaging makes it the perfect gift and holiday décor. 

Nomad Noe HERO in Niani 

This vanilla-scented candle will remind you of eating warm sugar cookies near a cozy fireplace. And with a burn time of 55 hours, you don’t have to worry about it running out for a long time. 

Nanor Effervescent Candle

If you’re not into the sugar sweet scents and are looking for a candle that’s a little more energizing, this one is perfect for you. Because of the formula made with lime, ginger and orange flower scents, it has a citrus-y aroma that instantly boosts your mood. 

FVITH Sleigh Candle
