  Fucking Fabulous 

Tom Ford 

Smells like: well, as bold as the name suggests. The notes of clary sage, lavender, bitter almond, vanilla, leather, orris root, tonka bean, blonde woods are warm and spicy but still soft and inviting.

Le Labo

Santal 26

Smells like: Every cool-girl boutique, toning workout class, or Instagram-friendly cafe in New York City. The amber, sandalwood, and vanilla notes make any room smell more expensive.



Smells like: Warm roses and berries. It's arguably the most famous scented candle in the world, and it fills your whole home with a light, comforting scent in a matter of minutes.



Smells like: a fresh bouquet of flowers from the world's most expensive florist. The candle burns for 240 hours, and when it's done, you're left with a collectible piece of art.

Candle No. 2


Smells like: Made from coconut and soy wax, essential oils, and unbleached cotton wicks, this candle makes your whole home smell fresh and inviting.

  Watercolor Jar Candle


Smells like: a zesty blend of citrus and tropical fruits in a prismatic jar you'll want to keep once the wax and wick are burned through.

Wood Sage & Sea Salt

Jo Malone London

Smells like: Woodsy, with a hint of sage and more than a pinch of sea salt. It's the perfect subtle scent if you dislike anything remotely sweet, fruity, or floral.



Smells like: a piña colada. One light of the match, and this candle's mix of coconut, orange blossom, and pink peppercorn turns any living room into a mini tropical oasis.
