Now through early winter is prime time to save on candles. Expect to see your favorite candles on sale regularly. One of my go-to candle sales: The Black Friday sales at Bath & Body Works where you can expect to get three free candles when you buy three. They also hold an annual Candle Day sale about a week after Thanksgiving Day when you can get 3-wick candles (up to 18 candles) at their lowest price of the season.
Consistently you’ll find that Dollar Tree has great deals on candles starting at just $1.25 — but you’re also paying for a smaller, 3-ounce candle. Meanwhile, Kohl’s candles can cost $19.99 on average, but you’re paying for a 14-ounce candle that’ll last you between 80 – 90 hours of burn time (and you can always use Kohl’s Cash for extra discounts).

If you want to save on fall candles, plan on spending around $1 per ounce. That might sound more complicated than it actually is, but all you have to do is divide the cost of the candle by how many ounces occupy the candle.
You can also save when you buy candle bundles — like back in early August, Bath & Body Works offered their Rewards members a $75 value set of fall candles and goodies for just $35 when they made a purchase of $30 or more.
Or scour clearance scents and shop at the right stores. For example, Target’s candles are almost always less than $1 per ounce, and popular stores like Yankee Candle with pricier options often have sales (right now you can buy three, get three almost any item with code B3G3FPYC at checkout).
Whether you’re looking for an inexpensive gift for a friend or want a new scent for your own home, here are our 50 favorite fall candles, based on which ones offer the best value and savings per ounce.
Best Fall Candles at Bath & Body Works
Pumpkin Pecan Waffles, 14.5 oz: $24.50
This might sound insane, but Bath & Body Works is actually marking $10 off 3-wick candles from their new fall collection in store and online. This pumpkin pecan candle, for example, is currently discounted to $14.50. If you shop online, you’ll also find online exclusives on sale for $10 off.
Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin, 7 oz: $15.50
Right now, you can get this sweet and nutty scent for $15.50, plus an additional candle for a total of $22. That’s thanks to Bath & Body Works’ Mix & Match deal, where you can get select two single-wick candles for $22.
Best Fall Candles at Walmart
Mainstays 3-Wick Candle Let’s Give ‘Em Pumpkin to Talk About 14 oz: $6.89
Bath & Body Works’ deals are great, and their candles come out to about $1 to $2 an ounce. But if we go to Walmart for their fall candles, like this pumpkin-scented one, we’re only spending $0.50 per ounce. How’s that for big savings?
Mainstays Warm Apple Pie Scented 3-Wick Candle, 14 oz: $6.31
Enjoy the scent of freshly baked apple pie with this inexpensive 3-wick candle. The Apple-y Ever After‘s label looks like something you’d see at a boutique but with the Walmart price tag.
Mainstays Glazed Pumpkin Donuts Scented Candle Twist Lid, 7 oz: $3.33
This glass jar pumpkin candle with a black farmhouse-style lid looks like you bought it on a visit to the pumpkin patch. Use the money you saved on an inexpensive Walmart candle (this one costs $0.47 cents an ounce) to buy real pumpkin donuts when you do go on a fall outing.
Mainstays Fall Farmhouse Scented 3-Wick Glass Jar Candle, 11.5 oz: $3.33
It’s hard to beat this price under $0.30 per ounce. The woodsy scent that combines cedar, oak, and amber incense is pure fall. You can even reuse the candle jar by removing the label and wrapping it with twine or a fall ribbon.
Mainstays Alpine Forest 3-Wick Scented Candle, 11.5 oz: $3.33
At this price, you might want to buy two to carry you through the holiday season. The forest scent comes at a super affordable price per ounce ($0.30) and makes an affordable hostess gift this season.
Best Fall Candles From Target
Glade 3-Wick Candle, Fall Night Long, 6.5 oz: $5.99
Target candles like Fall Night Long come at about $1 per ounce, but if you buy in store, you can get $1.50 off. Buy online, and you can buy one, get another for 20% off with order pickup. And if you use your RedCard, you can save an additional 5%.
Glass Jar Lavender Eucalyptus Candle,10.5 oz: $10
Hot tip: we’ve seen Target randomly hold sales on candles near the end of summer or early fall, with savings up to 70%. Of course this deal is rare to come by, so it’s best to sign up for their email notifications to stay up-to-date. This pretty vessel holds a fall candle that smells of sandalwood, eucalyptus, lavender, and cinnamon leaf.
Wood Lidded Glass Wellness Grateful Candle, 8 oz: $10
We confess this wood lid candle costs slightly more than $1 per ounce. (Fast math: it’s $1.25 per ounce). But the minimalist style of the container gave us modern farmhouse vibes that we couldn’t resist, and it’s still considerably more affordable than boutique candles like Le Labo, which can go upwards of $80, or eight times the price for the same size candle.
Best Fall Candles From Dollar Tree
Caramel Maple Candle, 3-Ounce Mason Jar: $1.25
If you shop in store, you can find this fall mini mason jar candle for quite a bargain. You have to buy 12 for $15 if you want to order it online, but with free shipping to the store, it’s a good deal for candle gifts or a fall centerpiece that needs a collection of candles.
Star Lytes Apple Cinnamon Mini Glass Apothecary Jar Candles, 3 oz: $1.25
The best part of this apple cinnamon-scented candle is that it looks more expensive than it is. The price averages to about $0.42 cents per ounce, which is much cheaper than Walmart’s candles ($0.50 cents per ounce).
Best Fall Candles From Dollar General
Perfect Harvest Cranberry Jalapeno Jelly, 15 oz: $7
At less than $0.50 per ounce, this spicy-sweet candle is so affordable you’ll have money left over to buy locally grown florals for your table.

Decorative and functional, this wrap candle comes out to $0.66 per ounce. Extend the use of this cheap candle by turning it around after Halloween and displaying it as a sleek black candle container until it’s burned out.
Sand and Fog Falling Leaves Candle, 12 oz: $8
We love how this candle shakes things up with a pastel color palette that aren’t your traditional autumnal colors. Get more for your money when you use this falling leaves candle with both fall and spring decor (just hide the wooden lid when out of season).
Sand and Fog Autumn Citrus Ceramic Candle, 11 oz: $10
Double the life of your purchase when you use this citrus-smelling candle this fall, and save the ceramic pumpkin vessel for a candy dish for years to come. Just be sure to clean out all the wax before you use the ceramic dish for another use.

Ok, ok … we know. This is one of the most expensive candles on our list of inexpensive candles, but hear us out. First, we love the packaging and crisp smell.
