You buy the candle. Light the candle. Smell the candle. Wash, rinse, repeat. That seems to be the whole point of it all, doesn’t it? Yet there are some beautiful candles that just seem to defy this notion. They gaze back at you lovingly in their pretty vessels and shapes. Daring you to light them if you can. It’s ok. We’re here for support. As we round up our list of beauties, we want to assure you that it’s ok to light them all.
1. Evoke, 9 to 5
We are partial to pink, but there is no denying the beauty of this candle from Evoke Candle Company. The brightly colored vessel, the addition of the Swarovski crystals. The zesty grapefruit scent is delectable, though, and you’ll want to light this one again and again.
2. Rigaud, Lavande
This luxurious candle from Rigaud looks amazing on the shelf with its pastel-colored wax and coordinating ribbon. The soft lavender scent it emits once burned is equally beautiful, so go ahead and light this one up to enjoy.
3. Pier 1, Oceans Layered Pillar Candle
The gorgeous layers of this Pier 1 candle just make it mesmerizing. It also gives off a gentle scent while sitting out in the open, unlit. But this candle is so reasonably priced, it’s ok to light it and enjoy it in full glory.
4. Voluspa, Rose Petal Ice Cream
Voluspa makes lovely candles, including this gorgeous scent of Rose Petal Ice Cream. It’s hard to imagine lighting this beauty, but it’s ok…they make plenty more!
5. Overose, Euphoriasme
The candle wax is the same shade as the vessel – swoon! Go ahead and light it, as the melted wax turns such a beautiful shade of purple. This Overose candle is scented with a wonderful bakery/floral mix that is simply amazing.
6. Diana Vreeland, Simply Divine
If you are a floral candle fan, don’t pass up Diana Vreeland’s Simply Divine candle. This tuberose delight is just that…simply divine. It has a beautiful colored wax pool once burning, so burn, baby, burn!
7. Fornasetti, Flora
This Fornasetti candle can be bought at Amara and it is hauntingly beautiful. If you’re willing to splurge for this beauty, be even braver and burn it for the lovely floral fragrance.
8. Otherland, Glass Pop
Yeah, we’re partial to pink and it shows here again as we gush over Otherland’s Glass Pop candle. So pretty and so sweet…you have to burn this one just to have an excuse to buy more.
9. Baobab, Nirvana Spirit
Go big or go home. That’s the concept with these massive candles from Baobab. Nirvana Holy provides a lovely, light floral fragrance that’s sure to please for hours on end. For 800 hours, to be exact, if you get the largest style.
There you have it. Nine breathtakingly beautiful candles that are simply gorgeous…but trust us, they are even more beautiful to burn. Go ahead and light one. You can always #buymorecandles.
