There's something about it that makes me feel like I have my life together; it even makes me look forward to cold weather. Thanks to these 21 scene-setting candles from Amazon, you won't have to worry about running out of options any time soon. From cult-favorite blends to single-note wonders, you'll be hard-pressed to find a candle on this list you won't want to light right now. (Alternatively, give one as a gift to a friend who just got a new home.)
