Winter Candle Guide


P.F. Candle Co. Teakwood & Tobacco Candle

Usually, I prefer candle scents that are a little more fruity, but the musky scent Teakwood + Tobacco candle from P.F. Candle Co. became surprisingly addictive. With notes of spicy black pepper, tobacco, orange, and berry this candle is the perfect addition to a blanket, roaring fire, and cup of hot apple cider.

Target + Magnolia Sugared Birch Candle

I don’t know about you, but when I heard Target and Chip & Joana Gaines were doing a collaboration, I ran to my nearest Target to buy one of everything. Magnolia Home goodness with Target prices is too good to pass up. This hand-poured pillar candle seems to have the perfect woodsy scent with a hint of freshly baked sugar cookies. I’m also a huge fan of pillar candles. Buy one of each size, add a little fresh garland, and voilà - a seasonal coffee table centerpiece.

Capri Blue Fir & Firewood Candle

If you’re looking for a quintessential Christmas candle, this one is for you. Not only does it smell like a freshly cut Christmas tree, but just the light flickering inside the luxurious green and gold candle jar is worth the price itself. Nonetheless, this candle boasts a fruity, green aroma of apple, clove, fir, pine needle, white birch, cedar, vetiver, and musk which is basically Christmas morning in a jar. Though one of the more expensive candles on the list, the 85+ hour burn time gives you the best bang for your buck.

Illume Mulled Wine Candle

With a $68 price tag, this candle is definitely more splurge than save; but, anyone who knows me knows I love to splurge on a good candle, and this candle might just be perfect. This scent teems with notes of orange and cinnamon and is topped off with vanilla, leather, and cedar. I’m not kidding when I say that one small candle fills your entire house with the scent of freshly-brewed spiced cider. When you add the gold mercury glass jar, and a whopping 170+ hours of burn time, this candle is a no brainer. You can even use the candle jar as a flower vase when finished. Just pop it into the freezer overnight, throw away the frozen wax residue in the morning, and you’ve created for yourself a beautiful and unique vase.


Voluspa Baltic Amber Candle

Voluspa is another one of my favorite brands of candles - the unique round decorative tin is perfect atop a coffee table. This beautifully patterned metallic tin comes in 12 different fragrances. I truly love all twelve, but the Baltic Amber fragrance tops the list. I’ve had this candle burning in my house multiple times, and without fail people always compliment how nice my house smells. The scent is a subtle blend of amber resin, sandalwood, and vanilla orchid. Perfect for everyday.
