If you’ve had a difficult day or are feeling particularly anxious, you can relax with a scented candle. Watching the candle flame flicker and change a room’s atmosphere is almost therapeutic. Instead of just lighting the one you scored from a discount bin, think about treating yourself to a luxury candle. Rather than feeling your room with too-sharp and almost nauseating smells from a store-brand candle, go searching for a high-end candle.
The scents of luxury candles are more carefully crafted. Instead of just smelling vaguely like “The Ocean,” they have several top scents layered in with some more subtle notes that’ll only come out when you walk by the candle and suddenly realize that it smells like amber, too. Your candle will list all of the different scents on the candle, too. Investing in a nicer candle is almost like aromatherapy. The candle will change the aura of your room, no matter what crazy or stressful things are happening outside of it.
We rounded up the best luxury candles for women. Our picks all have tastefully designed jars, carefully crafted candles and unique scents to choose from. If you don’t like one of the scent options we chose, each candle brand has plenty of other options to choose from to match your vibe or mood. Treat yourself to a good scent, and every time you light your candle up, you’ll think about how you got this candle to help you chill out.
