The best candles have a unique way of elevating any bedroom, living room, or apartment, creating comfort and swankiness no matter the month or your mood. While some people think of candles as holiday treats to light up while prepping for Christmas, here at Allure, we encourage you to light that wick all year long because you deserve your space to feel (and smell) exactly how you dreamed it would when you got the keys.
Our Top Picks
It doesn’t hurt that candles are having a bit of a renaissance right now. The options feel endless as perfumers and candle brands play with scent combinations and accords that go far beyond the candles you grew up with. We’re talking lake water, swimsuit lycra, and even the smell of a bubble bath. Whether you’re a fan of fresh and herbaceous scents, fruity and floral fragrances, or the mahogany and musk aromas of the world, you’re bound to find several that strike your fancy. And if you’re already a candle stan, loyal to one scent and one scent only, now is the time to branch TF out (we’re looking at you, gourmand girlies).
