There’s nothing quite like cozying up to a warm fireplace on a cold night with a cup of hot tea and a good read. But, if you rent or live in a home without a fireplace, you totally miss out on this relaxing pastime. (Not fair, right?)

Fortunately, you can have the next best thing: crackling candles. These special candles come with a wooden wick, that, when burned, are specifically designed to make a “crackle” sound like a wood-burning fireplace.

Here are five of our favorite wood-wick candle scents to try in your home:

Orange Clove

It’s everything we love about fall in a single candle – orange plus clove plus crackle. What’s not to love?

Evening Bonfire

It says “bonfire” but we don’t mean the scent that’s left on your clothes after a camping trip! This scent is the closest you’ll get to the scent of a wood-burning fireplace in your home.

Vanilla Bean

If you’re into traditional scents, try Woodwick’s Vanilla Bean crackling candle for a warm, “fresh-baked cookies” aroma.   

Cinnamon Chai

This spicy cinnamon scent has all of the benefits of sipping a hot chai without any of the caffeine overload.

Frozen Lake

This candle has intermixing scents of peppermint, clove, juniper berries and cedar to instill a little wintertime aroma in your home.

Love these autumn scents, but don’t want to spring for a new candle anytime soon? Check out these simple fall air freshener recipes that can be made with every day items.
