Candles are my favorite home-decor finds; no matter how many I have, I can't stop (and won't stop) collecting them. They set the ambience of your space, making it feel more elevated and comforting. They're the finishing touch to a peaceful home. With the holiday season ahead, I had to stock up my arsenal with candles to fit the cozy season's vibe. I was browsing through Target for fall candles and came across the Threshold 3-Wick Wooden Amber Glass Candle in Rose and Cedar ($26). This candle stood out since it had wooden wicks rather than cotton ones. The wooden wicks are supposed to mimic the fireplace experience and provide a calming crackling sound when burned. As a self-proclaimed candle connoisseur, Threshold's line of 3-Wick Wooden Amber Glass Candles is something I had to experience.

Every time I light the Threshold 3-Wick Wooden Amber Glass Candle, I enter a moment of serenity and tranquility. Each wooden wick makes a soft crackling sound that provides the ASMR my cozy season was missing. It truly sounds like firewood crackling in a fireplace, but of course, a little quieter. The candle instantly transformed my space into something peaceful with a cottagecore vibe. The crackling sounds were so calming, they nearly put me to sleep.

I got the Rose and Cedar scent, and it has a lovely blend of fresh and earthy notes. It has a floral and light top layer with woodsy depth that adds an intimate and comforting vibe to any space. I light this candle almost daily for about an hour (or two), especially when I want my space to reflect the coziness of the fall and winter months. Depending on if I'm lounging on the couch in my living room or sipping tea in bed, I take this candle with me when I'm ready to unwind. The amber-colored glass jar fits perfectly with my neutral-toned space. It's simple and elevated with a modern farmhouse flair that adds warmth to my countertops and side tables. This candle is a complete sensorial experience.

What's Worth Noting About the Threshold 3-Wick Wooden Amber Glass Candle

The crackling wooden wicks are what make this candle special. I recommend lighting this near you so you can experience the calming sounds. The fireplace-like sounds are softer, so it's best to be in a relatively quiet environment when lighting this candle.

A wooden-wick candle requires similar care to a regular cotton-wick candle. Trim the wick before every use, removing the charred wood bits, so the flame stays stable and lasts longer. You can use a wick trimmer or a pair of small scissors. Let the top layer of the wax melt completely to prevent that pesky tunneling effect with excess wax on the sides. The entire diameter of the candle should be melted wax before you blow out the candle. This candle has around a 50-hour burn time.

Who the Threshold 3-Wick Wooden Amber Glass Candle Is Best For

Candle-lovers, the ASMR-obsessed, home-decor enthusiasts, cozy connoisseurs, and homebodies galore, Threshold's wooden-wick candle is a sensorial experience everyone will enjoy, especially for the holiday season. If you don't have a fireplace, this is the next best thing. No matter what scent you choose, the crackling wooden wicks make the experience more calming with a festive, elevated flair.
