The Finest Scented Candles: Feel the Fervor of a Quality Fragrance at Home

With winter well underway, there’s no better time to enjoy the warm feeling only a scented candle can bring to a home. It’s the perfect way to relax. Because smell is so closely linked to memory, candles can be quite sentimental. Here are some of the very best scents to add warmth to your home this winter.

Cire Trudon Ernesto

What does a Parisian couturier’s studio smell of? This beautiful candle made by one of the oldest candlemakers in the world, is about as luxe as it gets when it comes to scented candles. Made in France, this 3kg Cire Trudon candle is inspired by the atmosphere of Havana hotels.

Heady and mysterious – the Cire Trudon’s signature Ernesto fragrance has the base of amber and spicy tobacco topped with the aromatic notes of fresh bergamot, grapefruit and rhum. A complex, yet ample scent that pulls you into a euphoric experience. Cire Trudon are the oldest wax manufacturers in the world; and the shape of their unique glass vessels are inspired by traditional champagne buckets. This beautiful piece is handcrafted in Tuscany and can be burned for up to 3 hours.

Diptyque Tubéreuse Candle

Diptyque’s large 1.5kg Tubéreuse candle is an elegant expression of a handmade candle. Made in the South of France, this candle is expertly blended using first-class waxes housed in a unique Virebent pottery container. The perfect example of luxury craftsmanship, the Diptyque has a spicy-sweet scent with heady floral notes. This candle creates a defining aroma wherever it is; the epitome of both an indoor or outdoor candle.

Voluspa Baltic Amber

As Voluspa’s largest-ever candle, the Baltic Amber is a real centrepiece. The over-sized vessel is made from amber glass with a magical glow similar to a fireplace. The 3.6 litres of wax it holds is a lovely blend of coconut wax with five cotton wicks, giving notes of amber resin, sandalwood and vanilla orchid when lit. The candle will burn for around 250 hours and comes with a beautiful lid to protect the candle that doubles as a tray when the candle is burning.

Fornasetti Bacio Scented Candle

This luxury candle is the ultimate addition to any stylish home. The iconic design by Italian artist Piero Fornasetti features the nose and mouth of legendary opera singer, Lina Cavalieri. On the inside, the candle is made from 100 per cent vegetable wax that is allergen and pesticide-free. Fornasetti’s signature Otto fragrance fills your home with notes of thyme, lavender and cedarwood. This unmistakable candle combines the classic hand-crafted vessel decorated in Italy with a delightful aroma exclusively created in Grasse, France.

Fornasetti Losanghe

This scented candle features the same signature Otto fragrance as the Bacio candle. The fragrance created by the perfumer Olivier Polge, is a rich, round scent with top notes of thyme and lavender. A base of tolubalsam, incense and birch mixes with smokey cedar and iris finishing off the beautiful aroma. The candle sits in a glazed ceramic jar, decorated with the face of Lina Cavalieri in a geometric gold print. The 1.9kg luxury candle supplies your home with a wonderful scent while looking strikingly elegant whether inside or outside.

Ambre Nuit

The Ambre Nuit candle offers the same signature scent as the Christion Dior perfume of the same name. The Ambre Nuit collection combines the deep, animal facet of amber with the delicate velvet of Turkish rose. This potent duo is the perfect celebration of opposites attract; strength finds common ground with delicacy. Created by François Demachy the accord is bold and sophisticated yet sensual.

Maison Francis Kurkdjian

Part of the Maison Francis Kurkdjian “Homes sweet homes” collection, the Anouche is a scented candle you can’t go wrong with. The rose and plum candle is inspired by the perfumer’s grandmother who made rose petal jam. It’s a delicate scent that has the sweetness of the rose and plum with smooth floral scents and slightly spicy notes. The lovely candle stirs up nostalgic memories and rekindles a childhood innocence. It’s presented in a porcelain jar from Limoges, and a French plant animal wax with braided cotton wick ensures a 55-hour burn time.

Cire Trudon Salta

As one of the oldest candlemakers in the world, Cire Trudon is known for making some of the finest luxury scented candles. The Cire Trudon Salta is one of them; a lovely classic candle fit for all occasions and any room. The chic piece is made in the Trudon workshop in Normandy, France, by master candlemakers. The fragrance features sweet grapefruit with floral hints blended with verbena and hyacinth.

Nette Georgica

A smart, simplistic candle, the Nette Georgica brings to mind beach houses in the Hamptons filled with old leather furniture and freshly groomed flowers outside. It’s a dreamy candle with summer scents of rose, cassis and violet. Honey, clove, sandalwood, leather and tonka complete the rest of the aroma that would linger purposefully on a warm summer night. The hand-poured coconut and soy wax blend sits nicely in the reflective container that glistens in the sunlight.

Olivia Palermo x Sicily Hill Citrus

This limited edition candle is the result of a Sicily Hill and Olivia Palermo collaboration. The Citrus Blossom scent they have created is perfect for an intimate setting. The aroma is strong on the fresh Sicilian lemon scents combined with a bouquet of aromatic peony and white blossom. Take this candle outside to an alfresco dining area and it will transport you to the Italian countryside. The container is a hunter green, high gloss votive with gold artwork, and the soy based wax is hand poured in the United States.
