7 Candles That Will Make Your Home Feel Cosy & Cool Instantly

Yes, there is an accessible way to pamper ourselves (and our homes) with top of the line scents and designs.
So whether you want to create the right ambience for a get together with friends or just want to lounge around in your pyjamas with a cup of tea, these heavenly smells will delight your senses and make your home feel charmingly fancy:

1. Nest

This American candle maker got a lot of hype for their bamboo scent, but we believe this Moroccan Amber scent will be more suited for a wintery ambience making your home feel super cosy.

This brand works with artisan perfumers to create their scents, so they have the quality of a luxury perfume. What’s more, the soft, cosmetic-grade blend of soy and paraffin wax allows the candles to burn evenly and cleanly. Plus, the containers are so pretty they’re worth keeping.

2. Diptyque

Diptyque is the French candle maker that actually made scented candles a thing.

We recommend the Figuier candle with its blend of sweet fruit and Mediterranean herbs. Try to grab the collector edition in translucent, bottle green to add a pop of luxe to your space.

3. Voluspa

This California-based brand has so many amazing scents and it’s hard to just recommend one. However, the Crisp Champagne is sure to make an impression with its notes of brut champagne, warm vanilla, and barrel oak.

Their coconut wax blend burns smoothly, non-toxic and 100% hand-poured in the US. Another plus is the design of their containers; they are so gorgeous they will liven up any room.

4. L’Artisan Parfumeur

Simple and elegant, L'Artisan's candles are a wonderful minimal yet chic option. Needless to say that the scents are out of this world. The Souffle de Jasmine scent has, evidently, jasmine as base, with hints of neroli for a decadent touch.

5. Cire Trudon

This French house is one of the oldest candle makers in the world and draws from history to make its scents. An opulent and rich, popular fragrance is the Mademoiselle de La Vallière. It has a tuberose base with a crisp hint of bergamot for balance. Want something lighter? Try the Cyrnos. It has a blend of lemon, cedar, cashmere wood that evokes the blue shores of the Mediterranean.

6. Otherland

A favourite of millennials, the US-based brand is hip and fun with its beautifully designed vessels and scents that change every season (Yes! just like ready to wear). What’s more, the candles are hand-poured with a coconut and soy wax blend, which is non-toxic and environmentally friendly.

7. Serenovo

This is the newest of the bunch and one of the most exciting new brands out there. Its debut scent, Orchard Spa, is said to promote clarity of thought and a relaxed state of mind. With a rich blend of 100% natural essential oils, which include notes of bergamot, cedar and vanilla, this scent is one of the finest we’ve tried so far.

The fragrance was crafted by one of the finest luxury fragrance makers of Europe and the bergamot orchards that grow in southern Italy’s Calabria inspired it. And yes! We were totally transported there.
