There is truly nothing more satisfying than burning a candle after giving your home some very much-needed TLC. Though lighting candles are the cherry on top in the self- care world, they’re an expensive ritual to maintain. So to make your life easier, I’ve rounded up my favorite affordable candles that smell absolutely decadent and will definitely give your space that effortless luxury vibe.
Rituals – The Ritual of Sakura Scented Candle
A delicate scent consisting of sweet cherry blossom and creamy rice milk, creating a soothingly fragrant atmosphere. The single-wick candle has a 50-hour burn time and is sure to fill a room with its soft, floral-velvety notes. It’s also beautifully packaged in a simple white glass container – perfect for chic minimalists to readily place on display.
P.F. Candle Co. – Sandalwood Rose Soy Candle
This is the candle that you didn’t know you needed. Sandalwood Rose is a beautifully balanced unisex fragrance with inviting notes of luscious rose, earthy sandalwood and intriguing oud, with a 40 to 50 hour burn time. It’s edgy yet calm, inspired by the scents of both Los Angeles and New York. Plus, the brass-lidded amber glass jar is totally on trend with its rustic and refined packaging.
Yankee Candle – Pink Sands Original Jar Candle
A popular option on the list but for good reason, so expect many compliments when you burn this candle. Pink Sands brings the beach into your home with its delicious blend of bright citrus, sweet floral and spicy vanilla, burning between 30 to 150 hours, depending on size. It’s sugar and spice perfection, with a powerfully fresh twist, made for the elite escapist who dreams of basking in the warm sun on a faraway exotic island.
MUJI – Lavender, Bergamot & Sandalwood Tin Candle
After a long, tiring day, we’re typically dying for that sense of calm to hit us – and this option is perfect for that mood. It’s a clean scented tin candle with a dainty appearance, offering a relaxing blend of lavender, fresh bergamot and warm sandalwood. It’s the ideal candle to light after a hectic day when I just want to unwind and distress, burning up to 30 hours.
Bath & Body Works – Mahogany Teak wood High-Intensity 3-Wick Candle
For those who don’t enjoy overly sweet or floral scents, this candle is your new best friend. It’s a deep, woodsy scented candle containing rich mahogany, teak wood, oak and hints of frosted lavender, reminiscent of walks in forests among freshly swan wood. The 3-wick candle comes in a high-intensity version, which burns up to 45 hours and permeates my entire home with its deep, masculine smell.
