Nirvana Spirit, Baobab ($190). These huge, gorgeous candles are beautiful inside & out. This is a smoky scent with notes of incense, cedar, and hints of vanilla.
Blissful Amber, Diptyque ($72). Diptyque is a no-brainer on any list for some of the best luxury candles you can buy. This beautiful box and deep blue candle vessel will make you squeal with delight. This scent combines amber, geranium, and musk notes.
Paint It Black, Evoke Candle Co ($36). Unboxing this candle is like unwrapping a Christmas present all unto itself. The sleek black look is sure to delight, with a sultry scent mix of cardamon and clove.
Flora, Fornestti at Candle Delirium ($210). These candle vessels are striking and the scents are divine. This is a floral mix with woody and musk notes.
Canopy, Otherland ($36). These beautiful candles are otherwordly. Prepare to be impressed with fresh green notes and sweet fig.
Fresh Cut Gardenia, LAFCO ($98). This fresh floral is great any time of the year. The large, beautiful vessels are keepsakes but you will need to wait…these candles last a long time!
Gabriel, Cire Trudon ($270). For a candle gift that keeps giving, this warm, woodsy scent is sure to be your next best favorite. We think the middle (intermezzo) size is the bee’s knees.
Holiday, NEST ($68). The box of this luxury candle has a texture that makes you want to rub and wait on the genie. The scent is a classic pine with fruity notes and the candle burns a super long time.
Le Feu Rouge, Le Feu De L’eau ($65). Not only will this lovely rose scent be a welcome sensory delight, but the beautiful red container this candle is in will fit right in with a traditional holiday decor.
Nudesse, Overose ($68 for Holo). This beauty comes in the standard jar, which is beautiful enough – but hopefully your gifter splurged for the hologram jar. The scent is roses and rain. Ahhh!
