Scented candles add to the ambiance of any interior. A luxury scented candle adds a little something extra.
High end scented candles are generally made with very high quality ingredients, and have been designed by master perfumers. The intensity of fragrance, and the pure, clean scents are unmatched. The containers are often collectible and also high quality.
Add a touch of luxury to your home with a designer scented candle. Here are our current favorite luxury scented candles.
Fill your home with the scent of the holidays with master perfumer Frederic Malle’s Joyeux Noel candle. A beautiful blend of evergreens, cinnamon, amber, and a touch of sweetness.
As a New Yorker, I may be a bit biased towards Bond No. 9. I used to work around the corner from their shop and would drop in whenever I needed a refill or a gift. Their scented candles are beautiful, and based on their top notch perfumes. The lid is designed to resemble a subway token.
Perfumista Avenue is a modern floral with rose and peonies, but enriched with spices and herbs for a spectacular oriental style fragrance.
Jo Malone London is renown for sophisticated natural fragrances. The Pomegranate Noir candle is a favorite.
Pomegranate blended with lilies and touched with smoky guaiac wood. This is an elegant scented candle that works in every environment.
The Fornasetti scented candles come in a highly collectible lidded porcelain jars decorated with Fornasetti’s signature quirky illustrations.
These are highly fragrant, sophisticated candles. The scents are all good, but lately I’m loving the floral Ortensia that has a base of sandalwood. Lily of the valley, jasmine, and tuberose meld beautifully with sandalwood for a fragrance that is always elegant.
Because of their keepsake Fornasetti containers these make a great gift.
Let LAFCO New York bring the beach to your home. The Sea & Dune candle combines lotus flower with sea grass, in a base of amber. A fresh scent in a minimal and elegant presentation. LAFCO New York is another hometown favorite.
Founder Laura Slatkin has an amazing talent for blending scents. Nest’s Grapefruit scented candle combines fresh pink grapefruit with lily of the valley and coriander blossom for an uplifting, fresh fragrance. This may be the most sophisticated grapefruit fragrance out there – it’s a beautiful scent for a home.
Diptyque has been synonymous with luxury from the beginning. The heady fragrance of tuberose is presented in a hand made glass holder. Very fragrant, very French, always elegant. We’ve been buying Diptyque for years.
Light your scented candles with ease with a long handled plasma lighter. Long enough to reach into the very bottom of a container. This lighter is rechargeable, and uses a flameless plasma arc to light the wick.
A high end scented candle makes a fantastic gift, for yourself or someone special. A luxury scented candle is perfect for those times when you don’t know what to get someone and want to get them something special.
