The best luxury scented candles to burn now
Today’s luxury candles are more than a pretty centrepiece – they have the power to alter and enhance your mood. A clean, crisp fragrance will clear the air when you’re feeling foggy-headed, while a rose-tinted bouquet will bring a flicker of romance to a cosy evening in. For the exhausted, a lavender candle will encourage deeper sleep, and grounding cedarwood notes should slow an anxious mind.To get more news about wholesale candle jars, you can visit luxurycandlejarswholesale.com official website.
But finding the best scented candle (whether for you or a lucky recipient) is more than a matter of scent, because not all are created equal in terms of materials, burn time and scent throw.
The new school of soy and coconut-based candles is sure to appeal to those on a natural beauty path. Brands such as Aromatherapy Associates are using expert oil blends to bolster the soothing effects of a flickering flame, while acclaimed niche perfumers Sana Jardin and D.S. Durga are shaking things up with spectacular, space-filling scents. The 'fashion candle' is on the rise too, with designers from Loewe to Gucci releasing scented style signifiers.
If you're investing in a luxury candle, you're going to want to get the best from it – and a little care can go a long way. When lighting the wick for the first time, allow it to burn for long enough that the entire surface of the wax melts evenly: this will prevent the candle from 'tunnelling' in the future. Be sure to trim the wick before every use too, as this will stop the flame from growing too large – Diptyque's wick trimmer is an objet d'art in itself.
When it comes to luxury candles, Diptyque is likely the first brand that comes to mind. And while the old classics like Baies and Figuier will always be a chic move, serious fans know to pounce on the seasonal limited-editions.
This season's offering is a homage to the brand's beloved Do Son scent, paying tribute to India's heady tuberose fields. Powerful yet fresh and green, it's the perfect summer floral fragrance.
As coveted as the designer's slogan sweaters, this supersized gilded candle is so in demand, it rarely stays in stock for long.The signature scent is an escapist ode to the 1970s, with heady patchouli and frankincense over a lingering musky base. The fragrance is especially strong – so much so, you rarely need to light the wick to enjoy its hazy, nostalgic trail.
Loewe has taken a predictably off-kilter – yet entirely chic – approach to home fragrance, filling these traditional terracotta jars with truly unique scents.
Each scent smells almost spookily like the real thing. Dive straight into the niche end with Tomato Leaf or Luscious Pea, or ease yourself in with the crowd-pleasing floral Honeysuckle.
Sustainable bedding brand Rise Fall has recently expanded its offering to include luxury home accessories and cashmere loungewear.
This responsibly produced candle is made in the UK from a blend of soya, rapeseed and beeswax, and set with a hand-centred cotton wick. The packaging – including the minimalist glass vessel – is entirely recyclable.
When it comes to scent, you have four to choose from, but our favourite is the deeply grounding Dark Noir: a rich and warming blend of pomegranate and spice.
Few can compete with Aromatherapy Associates when it comes to essential oil blends that truly transform your mood. The brand has recently relaunched its much-loved candles in a very chic new guise. Revive is the ultimate tonic for a groggy head or low mood: clarifying grapefruit meets invigorating rosemary in a blend that will make your home feel akin to a spa.
