The Best Scented Candles According to our Experts

December 20th, 2016

Okay, so maybe a scented candle isn’t the most original gift, but c’mon: have you ever met a person who didn’t love receiving one? Especially when said candle has the coolest packaging, is made of clean-burning soy wax, and lasts for 60 (or more) hours. We polled our beauty council members to find out which scented candle they can’t live without, and many of their picks check all boxes. Personally, I burn one of my favorites every single day — there’s no easier way to add a sense of luxury to day-to-day life, whether it’s an invigorating citrus on my desk while I work or relaxing lavender on the bedside table while I read at night. Do you think of beautifully-scented candles as extravagances… or essentials? Why not just embrace the fact that they can be both, then go ahead and scoop up a holiday gift or two for yourself. And, we’d love to hear in the comments what scented candle tops your list!

    I love diptyque, and feu du bois and baies are two of my favourites. Especially feu du bois because it reminds me of home and our log fire.

    My favorite is the “seeking balance” series from Root Candles, a family-owned company in Medina, Ohio. They used to be available at Whole Foods and Bed Bath & Beyond, but I no longer see them there. They do have their own website for online orders, and Amazon carries them as well. They are the best, at $20! The scents are amazing and never headache-inducing for me (e.g. lavender geranium, basil and lime, etc). I don’t think they last 60 hours like some candles do – I never really counted – BUT the best part is that they always burn evenly for me due to the wide, wooden wick. No trimming necessary. I’ve been frustrated with some of the more expensive “luxe” candles that don’t burn evenly despite following instructions about initial burn time and my constant trimming of the wick to 1/4 inch before every burn – ending up with $ worth left of wax at the bottom of the jar which I then have to put extra effort into to re-purpose. Not with Root Candles (I promise I’m not affiliated with them in any way – just a satisfied customer!). I feel like I divulged a best kept secret here 😉

    My absolute favourite candle company is Coal & Canary. All their scents are amazing and their packaging is SO fun. Their newest candle, aptly named ‘Champagne Suits & Birthday Suits’ is coming out just in time for Valentine’s Day! I’m so excited to order it!
