Looking to add a little something to your place? Try a delicious scented candle. You will want to burn these ones all the time.
If you are a perfume lover, you probably have a vanity (and bathroom counter and cupboard) filled with fragrances. However, on your average day, you cannot wear more than one scent unless you get creative and start mixing them. Even then, you cannot possibly wear every scent you own. If you want a way to add some more fragrance into your life, try a candle. Sometimes we forget about candles, and it is a shame. They are the perfume for your place. Plus, they are luxurious, and they give you a few extra home decor points.
Here are 12 candles that will make your place smell incredible:
1. Jo Malone French Lime Blossom Scented Home Candle ($65, Nordstrom)
If you love Jo Malone’s colognes, you will love its candles. The lime blossom candle has a refreshing scent that will transport you to the spring. Plus, take a look at how gorgeous the packaging is.
2. Chamomile and Fig Apothecary Glass Candle ($19, Paddywax)
This beautiful soy wax candle looks like something you would find on a shelf in an ancient apothecary, thanks to the amber glass bottle. The artisan candle contains notes of fig and chamomile, and it is hand-poured into the bottle.
3. Vanilla Bean Marshmallow 3-Wick Candle ($15, Bath and Body Works)
Why have a single wick candle when you can get one with three wicks? This warming vanilla bean and marshmallow one is perfect for winter. You can get between 25 and 45 hours of delicious burning from it.
4. Wasabi Pear Candle ($40, Nest)
Just like with your perfumes, you can find candles with interesting scent combinations. Take this wasabi pear one. You may not have thought to eat wasabi and pear together, but it works in a candle.
5. Sugar Lemon Scented Candle ($55, Fresh)
If you’re looking for something zesty but a bit sweet, this candle will make a great addition to any room. The lead-free wick produces an even-burning flame that can last for around 50 hours.
6. Diptyque Mimosa Candle ($32, Nordstrom)
You cannot get anything more classic than a Diptyque candle. The candle is made in France, and it has a fresh flowery smell that will disguise that old, dusty smell in any place.
7. Lazy Sunday Morning Candle ($60, Maison Martin Margiela)
Your lazy Sunday mornings are probably made up of sleeping in, brunch and sweatpants. This candle is basically the same thing. It is described as “soft skin and bed linens.” It has notes of white musk, lily of the valley, patchouli, and iris to evoke the feeling.
8. John Robshaw Pondicherry Candle ($60, Tocca)
How pretty is this one? The candle comes in a handmade ceramic vessel that is reminiscent of the way the mansions are painted in Pondicherry. The candle is just as nice with notes of vetiver, garland flowers, and black currant.
9. Lavender Relaxing Candle ($25, L’Occitane)
Let’s face it; everyone could use something in their lives that will help them relax more. This lavender-scented candle will make you forget about your stressful day. For a really therapeutic experience, light the candle and fill up the bath with lots of bubbles.
10. Voluspa Japonica Goji Tarocco Orange Embossed Jar Candle ($24, Nordstrom)
This candle ticks all of the boxes. The coconut wax candle comes in a gorgeous embossed glass jar that you will want to keep long after the candle is gone. You will also have plenty of time to enjoy the fragrant blend of goji berry, ripe mango, and Tarocco orange, thanks to the 100-hour burn time.
11. Illume Good Nature Avocado and Mint Soy Candle ($18, Anthropologie)
Anthropologie has a great beauty section. This soy candle is just one of the many good things you can find there. You can get your daily fill of avocado in a way besides avo on toast, thanks to the pretty candle.
12. Mandarin & Tangelo Scented Candle ($16, The Body Shop)
This one looks a bit different, but inside that box is an invigorating candle. The candle is crafted out of responsibly managed palm oil, and it has notes of mandarin, tangelo, and grapefruit. If you’re a citrus fan, this is your candle.
