The most luxurious candles to deck your home with, from Aesop Aromatique to Loewe Home Scents
The new Aesop Aromatique Candle range comprises a trio of captivating scents: Aganice, Callippus and Ptolemy. Each bearing the name of astronomers of yore and inspired by ancient mythologies, the candles' beguiling nature are made for a perfect repose. Our favourite is Ptolemy—a resinous, earthy blend of cedar, cypress and vetiver reminiscent of Japanese forests. All candles are made with vegan-friendly ingredients and can burn for up to 65 hours.

Ready to celebrate the holiday spirit (what with the letdown that is the entirety of 2020)? Deck your space with the most festive of scents—Jo Malone London's Orange Bitters Candle is now available to shop online and you can't miss out on the decadently good-enough-to-eat scent of sweet orange, ripe mandarin, bitter orange, rich prune and a base of sensual sandalwood and amber.

Loewe's 'Home Scents' collection is aptly-named, based on its inspiration of the collection. Expect distinctive scents that you can glean from home—specifically 11 botanical essences such as beetroot, juniper berry, coriander, oregano and more. Developed by in-house perfumer Nuria Cruelles, the collection's candles are made of natural vegetable wax and poured into fluted ceramic containers inspired by fifth century Greek drinking vessels (perfect for upcycling).
Available at select stores
House a slice of history in an intriguing fragrance (clad in hand-blown Italian glass, no less) and you'll find Cire Trudon Salta. Part of its iconic 'Les ells Matières' collection‚ Salta is a fresh citrus-laden grapefruit scent that's made with (you guessed it) grapefruit, hesperide, verbena and hyacinth—crisp, chic and perfect if you're a hardcore citrus lover.
You can't go wrong with the cult-favourite Le Labo Santal 26 Classic Candle if you're looking for a refined fragrance to spruce up your abode. Described as an 'aristocratic smoky leather' scent, Santal 26 is made with notes of amber, coco, vanilla, cedar, spices, musk and sandalwood. Whether on your vanity or coffee table, it's the perfect home accessory for a sublime scent.
You don't have to pine for the plains of Grasse now, thanks to Louis Vuitton's L'Air Du Jardin Perfumed Candle. Notes of Centifolia roses unfurl as it is lit, inspired by the heady floral scents that surround Les Fontaines Parfumées, master perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud's creative workshop on the French Riviera in Grasse.
