It’s Lit: The Best Scented Candles For Your Home

Long seen are the days where scented candles are solely presented as kind offerings of thanks.

Forget room fresheners, diffusers and other dated aromatic offerings; candles are perfect for filling a room with fragrance and creating any desired ambiance in any given space.

New candles are created using luxurious techniques, from uniquely designed hand pouring techniques to long lasting soy-based or fine triple milled wax, the modern candle no longer purely serves as a hostess gift.

A luxe candle can lighten and brighten dark or sunless rooms, evoke memories of happy times, or even mask the aroma of a damp room by filling it with a freshly scented fragrance.

From creating a unified aroma throughout your home, to picking particular candles for each room in your house, we’ve sourced the crème de la crème of luxury candles to help bring your home fragrance wishes to life. 

For The Bedroom:

The intoxicating fragrance of Tuberose with warming Amber and Sandalwood makes Loving the perfect bedroom fragrance. The sweet but sinful blend creates a desirable bedroom ambiance, while the striking red glass makes for a stunning side table addition.
