10 Best :: Scented Candles

When did my candle addiction begin? It must have been some time in 2007 — one strike of that match and I was hooked. These days you can put money on the fact that if I’m home, there’s a wonderfully scented candle burning right there with me. But uncovering the very best of them was a long journey, fraught with trial and error as I weeded out all those over-priced and under-smelly candles. Today I’m practically a pro, so I thought I’d shed some light on the topic with a list of my very favorite brands, and hopefully you’ll share yours too!

    My all-time fav candle is Christian Tortu – Pamplemousse (A grapefruit-rhubarb blend). The scent is pure ecstasy.

    Right now I’m burning the Voluspa Crisp Champagne candle. The scent is creamy and lovely.

    Our house scent is Voluspa’s Laguna. We have several candles throughout the house (and I cheat a little when company comes over with the room spray)!

    If you are addicted to the smell of Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel, you should try the Cashmere scent candle by Comfort Candle Company! This candle smells exactly like the perfume! I never buy candles, but I could not pass this one up! Divine!

    I must say, I love Yankee Candle’s Macintosh. It’s a classic and I love the smell of apples!

    These days I relax with L’occitane fig tree leaf scented candle. Looove it!!

    And I love my own homemade candles, too. :) In the beginning of june I made beeswax candles and to some of them I added lavender or lemon essential oil. Mmm… :)

    I love Voluspa Hawaiian Maile Vine and Orangerie D’Azahar, and the Yankee Candle Macintosh really does smell exactly like fresh apples. Can’t wait to try the ones you enjoy!

    My all time FAVORITE candle is the Henri Bendel Lemon Verbana. It reminds me of lemon italian ices and warm summer nights. They seem to be selling them on and off, so when I see them available, I stock up!

    Great picks! I LOVE Voluspa candles! My favorite fragrances are Coeur de Cassis, Makassar Ebony & Peach and French Bourbon Vanille, but they are all fabulous!! I’m super excited about the new Vermeil Collection. Chestnut & Vetiver and Champagne Rose are amazing. I also love Lafco candles. So beautiful and crazy huge. I love Beach House in the summer and Feu de Bois in the winter. Fragrance is so much fun!!

    The best smelling and unique candles come from Ocotillo Southwest. They have amazing fragrances from the southwest like Sopapillas and Honey, Trés Leches, and Ocotillo Nectar. They burn great, smell great, and are poured in beautiful glass containers.

    Yankee candles. I will never know how they smell because they are around $30 each and who in their right mind would pay that for one candle. For $30 I would expect to get at least 6 candles. Anybody know of any cheap candles the smell good and last a long time?

    Great collection (i’d like to try all these candles).
    Of all candles that I currently have and all the candles I have ever purchased, candles & scents from Allure Home Fragrance is my all time favorite, I enjoyed all the fragrances/candles that I tried from them (http://www.allurehomefragrance.com/candles.html). I’ll keep buying candles from other places, but my favorite is from Allure Home Fragrance.

    Most of these have been pretty good so far. Some are a little to pricey. A new company called parfumceleste.. ,I think that’s their name on Etsy, they have been putting out some great scents and are priced pretty good too. Hard to find them but they are worth it.

    Chanel,
    Although I do agree with most of your candle pics (especially the Jo Malone), many of these candles are pricey on the pocketbook. Have you reviewed Gold Canyon Candles? You should try them. They last just as long as the pricier options and come in many fragrances. Just a medium candle can scent the house and take away bad odors. I get mine from here https://apollo.mygc.com
