Can you recommend me a good candle that smells like campfire? It’s such a common question that I am asked on this blog.

So that’s what I’ll be covering today my fellow candle junkies.

One of the great things about candles is that they bring back memories that we associate with those scents. And who has a bad time when they’re having a campfire? Nobody, that’s who.

As you probably might have guessed, this candle fragrance, along with candles that smell like Christmas trees are some of the most popular scents in the winter months as people love to get their home smelling like a classic wood-burning log cabin for Christmas time.

I’ll try and keep this part short and sweet but here are 5 great candles that smell just like a campfire which I absolutely recommend.
