Having a scented candle burning at home can make the biggest difference to your mood, the way your home looks, and, of course, the way it smells. Just like anything else based on scent, it really is up to you to find what you like. All the same, there are select candles which have become incredibly popular throughout the years, and for good reason. We’ve decided to take a look at some of the most popular and talked-about scented candles to have at home. Not to mention, having a candle burning on a stormy night can make your house feel like the coziest place in the world!
Diptyque Baies Candle
If you haven’t heard of the brand, all you really need to know is that it makes incredible candles that smell heavenly. As a matter of fact, their high prices are definitely worth the money. If you do take the plunge and buy one – don’t be afraid to use it! This candle’s prominent scent is rose, but it’s not too floral overall. Black currant leaves balance out the sweet notes, making it an earthy scent that smells warm while still luxurious.
Pumpkin spice is an absolute classic scent and flavor – especially during the fall. The Nest Pumpkin Chai Three-Wick Scented Candle is a must-have when it comes to autumn scents. You’ll be able to really get into the fall spirit with just this candle. The wild pumpkin, spicy masala chai, cardamom, ginger, and cinnamon create the perfect scent.
Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir
Jo Malone is famous for its stunningly unique scents. This candle has become a fan-favorite for a reason. With notes of pomegranate, pink pepper, Casablanca lily, guaiac wood, and patchouli, the candle gives off a strong scent, even when unlit. In addition to smelling heavenly, the guaiac wood has been known to help with breathing.
Reflection + Clarity
A simple and easy way to achieve balance and harmony in your house is with Chesapeake Bay’s Mind & Body collection. This candle combines eucalyptus, lavender, and sea salts to create a marvelous light aroma that provides a sense of calm.
Capri Blue Volcano Iridescent Jar Candle
It wouldn’t be a complete best-candle list if we didn’t mention Capri Blue’s Volcano scent. It’s also known as the Anthropologie Candle. The best-seller has a rather intoxicating scent. According to reviews, the smell is ‘bright’. Consumers have described it as a scent that reminds everyone of all kinds of amazing things, like tropical islands or crisp lemonade.
Bath & Body Works Midnight Blue Citrus 3-Wick Candle
We loved candles with a scent. However, we don’t want them to be so strong that they leave us feeling woozy afterward. This candle has the perfect balance in its scent. As if the amazing scent isn’t enough, it’s a more affordable option if you don’t want to go overboard with the price.
