Nothing makes the autumn season quite like the comforting variety of aromas.
From indulgent, cinnamon-dusted pastries to warm, smoky fireplaces and cult-classic beverages, autumn is renowned for its sweet and soothing scents that welcome in the festive season.
With the cooler weather also comes the desire to craft, light candles, and fill your home with only the best autumn scents.
So, no matter how you decide to scent your home this season, we're here with our list of top autumnal oils to help you along the way.
Fragrance oils are considered to be the best for candle making, soap making, and other scent-related crafts due to their long-lasting, pungent scents.
As they are synthetically made, fragrance oils can also depict certain aromas that may not otherwise be naturally replicated.
Here are some of our favourites.
A coffee-shop classic, the smell of pumpkin spice is one that many of us immediately long for as the leaves start to turn brown.
This fragrance oil is a toasty blend of seasonal spices combining cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and classic pumpkin to make your home feel like the epitome of autumnal joy.
Apple & Cinnamon
Apple & cinnamon is the perfect transitional scent from autumn to winter due to its inviting sweetness combined with its classic spicy warmth.
Designed to resemble the scent profile of a homemade apple pie, this fragrance oil will have you reminiscing chilly family mornings at home.
Baked Cinnamon Bun
Traditional to the autumn time, the scent of cinnamon buns will leave your home feeling sweet and inviting, with a familiarity that will certainly be appreciated in the colder weather.
If you don't feel like making rows and rows of baked goods, this oil can help achieve their vibe for you.
Hot Chocolate & Macaroon
For some of us, the perfect autumn involves travelling to new, hidden spots for relaxation and comfort.
This fragrance oil provides just that feeling, resembling the scents of a small French patisserie surrounded by falling leaves.

Some of us may prefer for our homes to be filled with autumn smells, while also simultaneously providing us with aromatherapy benefits for our minds, bodies and souls.
These essential oil blends have been specially formulated by our in-house experts to create the perfect autumn scents with revitalising benefits to match.

Its calming, earthy scent makes for a great out-of-the-box autumn pick, while its regenerative properties can help to balance out your hormones as well as cleanse the skin.
