Holiday Gifts: The Luxury Candle

When it comes to candles, I am completely torn. One half of me thinks it’s ridiculous to spend more than 20 bucks on something you light on fire, the other half continues to fork over the cash for the perfect diptyque scent. Something about burning an expensive, heavily scented candle makes me feel like I have my life in order, and it is one of my favorite things to gift to others. I find candles to be the perfect present for so many different people, and with the holidays coming up I thought I would make a quick post filled with the perfect luxury candles to buy for your loved ones!


Maison Louis Marie No. 04 Bois de Balincourt Candle $34.00

“Sandalwood, Vetiver, Amber Wood”

This little candle is nice a small, perfect for a stocking stuffer for the perfume lover in your life. The vetiver brings this scent to a more unisex place, perfect for the family room.


Maison Margiela ‘REPLICA’ By The Fireplace Scented Candle $62.00

“Pink Pepper, Orange Flower Petals, Clove Oil, Chestnut Accord, Gaïac Wood Oil, Cade Oil, Vanilla Accord, Peru Balsam, Cashmeran”

All of the REPLICA scents are perfect at creating a story, and theres nothing better than snuggling up by the fire in the winter months with someone special!


By Rosie Jane James Candle $40.00

“Fig, Amber, Gardenia”

If your loved one prefers a lighter, more floral scent, try this candle from Rosie Jane, the gardenia and fig make it both delicate and fresh.


DRYBAR The Scent of Dry Bar Scented Candle Triple Sec 01 $45.00

“Vanilla, Amber, Musk”

We all have someone in our life that can’t go a week without a blow out, so why not give them a candle that will make their bathroom feel like their favorite salon?


Fresh Sugar Scented Candle $60.00

“Citruses, Caramels”

While I love a unique, complicated scent, my mother much prefers a simple candle for her house. Something like this from Fresh is perfect for a nice, classic smell without all the extra notes.


Le Labo Santal 26 Classic Candle $75.00

“Amber, Coco, Vanilla, Cedar, Spices, Musk, Sandalwood”

If someone I know has a signature perfume, I always try to find the candle version of it for them! I love when a fragrance releases it’s candle counterpart, and this classic perfume from Le Labo translates perfectly!


Boy Smells Kush Scented Candle $29.00

“Cannabis, Brushed Suede, Tulip, White Musk, Amber Accord”

I love this brand, it’s such a great idea! This is youthful and silly, but the scent is amazing and completely unique.


BYREDO Bibliotheque Candle $85.00

“Peach, Plum, Vanille, Patchouli”

There is always someone in your life that has their nose in a book, so instead of buying them another Barnes and Noble giftcard this year, give them something like this candle from BYREDO to set the mood in their favorite reading spot. diptyquebaiesscentedcandle

diptyque Baies Scented Candle $65.00

“Roses, Blackberry Leaves”

And last but not least, the cult classic berry scented candle from diptyque! You will be hard pressed to find a sleek vanity instagram shot that doesn’t have this candle hiding somewhere in it, and it is the best beginner candle to gift to someone. People either have never tried it and need one, or they collect them, either way this is a foolproof gift.

Let me know your favorite luxury candles!

Glowingly yours,
