The 3 Best Scented Candles on Amazon
Sometimes all you need to brighten your mood after a long day is the warmth of a scented candle. And while everyone has their own fragrance preferences, there are a few brands that stand out from the pack as winners overall. Even better, they’re all on Amazon. Here are three scented candle brands we plan to stock up on, asap.
Best Value: Homesick Scented Candle, Classic Size
- Has a burn time of 60 to 80 hours
- Made from all natural soy wax
- Hand poured in the U.S. in small batches
You know that wonderful feeling when you catch a whiff of something that smells just like home? Well that’s what Homesick is all about with its state candles. There are 51 specially curated scents (California gets two, one for the north and one for the south) meant to make you feel like you’re back home. It also has city, country, holiday and memory collections so you can fill your home with memories of all the places you’ve been every time you light them.
Editors’ Pick: Jonathan Adler Pop Candle
- Made from a soy/paraffin blend for a cleaner burn and stronger scent reach
- Burns for approximately 40 hours
- Comes in a reusable vessel
“This is one of my absolute favorite candles, and I tend to stock up on them during the holidays when they sometimes go on sale. I love the unexpected scent options like tomato (fresh and summery like a greenhouse) and Champagne (bright and fruity). But what I really love best about these is that the scent isn’t overpowering. A lot of scented candles start to give me a headache after while because they’re too strong, but I can keep this guy lit for hours and just enjoy.” – Abby Hepworth, associate editor
Splurge-Worthy: Diptyque Scented Candle
- Delicate, subtle scent
- One of the most popular candle brands in France
- Made from unique wax formulas designed to complement each scent
Walk into any upscale shop or chic Parisian-inspired woman’s home and this is likely the candle you’ll see burning. The brand, which has been around for more than 50 years, is known for its delicate but complex scents, which are handmade to perfection in small batches (hence the hefty price tag). Oh, and did we mention Beyoncé, Meghan Markle, Kate Hudson, Kerry Washington and Iman are all dedicated fans?
