Best Scented Candles on Amazon
Inis The Energy of the Sea Candle
From the moment I opened the packaging, I could tell this candle was a great one!
It smelled incredible.
Scents are always hard to describe, but this one is a really clean, refreshing and soothing scent. It actually smells like a more affordable dupe of Anthropologie’s house brand candles.
I liked it so much I googled to see if there were any stockists in the US and luckily, Amazon carries them!
The candles are all natural, and made with a lead free cotton wick. The votive is pretty simple, just a frosted white glass.
I light this whenever I have people over because it’s a subtle but strong scent that you can really smell. Everyone always comments on how ‘great’ my apartment smells and it’s literally all due to this, ha!
Chesapeake Bay Candle, Balance + Harmony
This Chesapeake Bay candle is Amazon’s #1 best seller, for a reason!
It’s all natural soy candle and smells like serene water lilies mixed with fruity pear. Overall, it’s a really nice and pleasant smell, that’s not too strong or overpowering.
Best of all, it comes in a bunch of different sizes and the large coffee table option is really affordable – and doesn’t tunnel!
Chesapeake Bay Candle, White Gardenia
White gardenia is a beautifully mild background scent with a hint of florals.
It’s made from high quality soy and really soothing to burn. When you’re not using it, it comes with a simple wooden lid so dust and debris won’t dirty up the white wax.
I like how simple and rustic the candle is and it’s deceptively large – great for open floor plans or large rooms.
Plus, I love how long it lasts! It’s a large candle and can burn for 70 hours or more.
Benevolence Aromatherapy Candles
This is a really sleek and sexy candle. It comes nicely packaged (and would make for a great gift), as the jar is an elegant matte black.
The rose and sandalwood option smells like pure rose – very floral and crisp with a hint of musk undertones.
The scent burns cleanly and strongly when lit too!
Best of all, a portion of proceeds go towards charities that fight sex trafficking.
Yankee Candle Home Sweet Home
Yankee Candle Balsam & Cedar
I love the smell of a real Christmas tree… but I hate constantly having to remember to re-fill the tree with water and vacuuming up dried pine leaves.
Enter, Yankee Candle to the rescue!
This large glass jar smells exactly like the real thing… actually, maybe better! It blends balsam, cedar wood and juniper berries for the most festive winter fragrance that keeps the holiday cheer going.
Yankee Candle Lilac Blossoms
I love the smell of lavender so I was intrigued by Yankee Candle’s popular Lilac Blooms option.
It’s really refreshing and quite a sweet floral. If you like strong scents, try this out. The extra large jar and 110 hour burn time can easily fill up your entire home. I love lighting these during a long, relaxing bath!
Best of all, they’re large, affordable and last forever.
Yankee Candle Midsummer’s Night
Votivo candles are a gorgeous luxury candle brand.
They’re fresh, clean and come in so many unique scents like Venetian Leather, Tuscan Olive and Christmas Sage.
I love the sleek packaging on these – they’re gorgeous! The clear glass candle and simple wax seal detail is really pretty and will look great in any room in your house!
Clean Soy Candles
I use Mrs. Meyer’s to clean my home and am always impressed by their scents. They’re unique, smell so fresh, fruity and clean and so I was thrilled to find out they make candles too!
These Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day candles are made from all natural soy, with a long burning candle wick that’s lead free.
I particularly like the lavender scent, which has a subtle garden fresh floral note – but I also love the smell of lavender! They also come in basil and lemon verbena.
Urban Concepts Candles
Have you ever noticed that luxury hotel lobbies smell incredible?
Well, here’s how to get the same luxurious and relaxing scent at home.
Urban makes creates the decadent candles that tons of 5 star hotels around the world use – like the Amanyara Resort in Turks & Caicos and the Grand Bohemian Hotel in Asheville, North Carolina.
The scents are strong and work really well for open floor plan homes. They burn really smoothly and last forever!
I was intrigued by the ‘Fresh Linen‘ scent of this candle and it didn’t disappoint. It’s clean, fresh and smells exactly like fresh laundry.
Plus it lasts so long – 40+ hours and counting!
It’s a cute simple design too. If you like to re-purpose old candles, this one is a pint sized clear jar with a contrasting black lid and chalkboard style lable.
