What's Your Favorite Candle?

I'm always looking for great candles, the type that smell lovely and linger, scenting your whole home like the inside of an Anthropologie.

So I decided to do a little experiment and put out a call the the blog world, asking suggestions for the BEST candles for me to try, all in the name of "research" of course. I'll let you know my findings!

So it's time for you to do your job now, let me know which candles you love in the comments below.

Has anyone tried the coiled beeswax candle pictured above? It looks so interesting!

Also, has anyone made their own candles?


  1. Anthropologie candles are wonderful! But they are a bit on the expensive side. Two of my favorite candles in the world are Christmas scents--dew berry and home for the holidays, both by Yankee Candle. It is literally the scent of everything Christmas in a jar. Also, Wal-Mart has some surprisingly great smelling and long lasting candles that are really cheap.

  2. Bath & Body works has some great fall scents, fireside (name?), pumpkin spice, apple, and winter are all warm + cozy for the cold season.

  3. Also love the "Capri" candle at anthropologie.

  4. My Aunt makes chocolate scented candles at her Chocolate Flower Farm on Whidbey Island. They are heavenly. http://www.chocolateflowerfarm.com/

    1. Totally checking them out! Thanks!

  5. I love all of the fall and winter Yankee scents but, honestly, my favorite look in my home is just to put a tealight into a glassybaby (or multiple glassybabies)... I'm a glassybaby addict like so many Seattle-ites.
