9 Gorgeous Rose Scented Candles That Will Make You Swoon by Candlefind FI

There is nothing quite like the scent of real roses. They come in such a wide variety of colors and variations…it’s enough to boggle the mind. The rose scent is one that is particularly hard to capture in candle form. We’ve found a number of rose scented candles that come off smelling fake – too sweet, too perfumey, too stuffy. Yet there are some candles that seem to capture the essence of the smell of real roses. At least they come pretty darn close! Since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, we thought it would be fun to share our picks of some of the best rose scented candles on the market today.

Yankee Candle

Fresh Cut Roses

Fresh Cut Roses from Yankee Candle is a favorite candle of ours. As a matter of fact, it’s on our list of some of the best Yankee Candle large jars you can buy. It is such a fresh rose scent, complete with greenery. Some say this is Roses of Cliff Walk reincarnated…we just say that it is one of the best rose scented candles we’ve ever sniffed. The scent is strong but not overpowering.



Diptyque Roses Candle

On the more luxurious end, there is Diptyque’s candle, Roses. This is a more powdery rose, light and fresh. There is not as much greenery in this scent, but it’s definitely there. The cold throw is on the lighter side, but once lit, the hot throw is fantastic! Diptyque also carries a Geranium Rose scented candle that is warm, spicy, and a bit more earthy, if that’s the vibe you’re feeling.


Fresh Cut Roses

Artisane’s Fresh Cut Roses is a wonderful blend of fresh, sweet rose with leafy green notes. In this rose scented candle, the green notes seem to overtake the rose, in a really good way. This type of rose scented candle is perfect if you can’t take too much in the way of florals. The lush, slightly sweet green notes are intoxicating, with hints of powdery rose coming through in the background. This scent is not too overpowering, either.


Sparkling Rose

The Sparkling Rose candle from Voluspa used to be named Prosecco Rose and it is sweetly fabulous! Think pink champagne over ice next to a lovely bouquet of edible white roses. It is definitely on the sweet side, but not cloyingly sweet. It has a bubbly, fizzy element to it that makes it a bit romantic and fun. If you’re averse to straight up rose scents, this sweet mix just might be the trick!


Rose + Santal

Top Notes: Bergamot, Sheer Lemon, Fresh Nutmeg, Bitter Lime
Middle Notes: Rose Geranium, Warm Amber, Peony, Cedar Leaf
Base Notes: Rosewood, Patchouli, Spiced Musk, Sandalwood Photo Credit: Paddywax

Paddywax is bringing sexy back with this Rose + Santal scented candle. The scent is warm and spicy with a bit of brightness from the citrusy notes. The rose notes are able to shine through and give a sense of sensual pleasure. This specific brand is an affordable luxury, so this is one rose scented candle that we think most everyone should give a try.

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Celebrate by trying one of our picks of the best rose scented candles on the market today.



Rosenhave Skandinavisk Candle

Skandinavisk’s Rosenhave is a light, fresh rose scent, with the juicy blackcurrant scent grounding the entire fragrance. It is rich and deep, but not a pure rose scent. Still the scent is so remarkably fabulous, we couldn’t help but to include it as one of the best rose scented candles out there.

Soap & Paper Factory

Flowering Currant

The Flowering Currant candle from Soap & Paper Factory is a very interesting rose scent, with tart, juicy currant notes taking center stage. This blends so well with the slightly fruity Turkish rose notes, it’s amazingly unique and swoon-worthy.

Home Lights

Rosewood Macaron

Rosewood Macaron Candle from Home Lights
An oriental woody fragrance. The composition is lemon peel, strawberry, peach, bergamot top notes. Heart notes are rosewater, violet, lavender, jasmine, caramel, toasted tonka. Photo credit: Candlefind

If you’re looking for a lot of bang for your buck, you can’t go wrong with the huge, slow burning candles from Home Lights. Their Rosewood Macaron candle is a beautiful, complex fragrance that combines a little sweet with a lot of warmth. The delicate floral notes blend well with the creamy bakery notes for a truly unique experience.

Jo Malone

Red Roses

Jo Malone Red Roses Candle
The essence of modern romance. Inspired by a voluptuous blend of seven of the world’s most exquisite roses. With crushed violet leaves and a hint of lemon, it unfolds like a bouquet of freshly cut flowers. Surprisingly clean and sheer. To uplift, to wind down, or simply to add an air of luxury. Transform the atmosphere with luxury and opulence. Photo Credit: Jo Malone

The classic Red Roses candle from Jo Malone is rich and inviting. There are some subtly sweet notes in this scent and beautiful, airy green notes. The citrusy notes are a bonus, making for a complex rose scented candle that is sure to delight your senses. The fragrance is a bit more subtle, but it does permeate well. 

These are the best rose scented candles we think you can buy these days. Our picks give you a pretty wide range, with something for everyone. Try one (or two or three) out and tell us what you think. Did we leave out your favorite rose candle? Chime in below to let us know!
