The 7 Best Spring Candles To Gift

Posted by Admin.

Pack away the cashmere with the mothballs, tuck away the parkas, and maybe consider packing away your fireplace candles? No? Okay, well you can hold onto them. But just in case you want something that goes better with Spring pollen, sunshine, and the occasional rainshower, here are 7 great Spring candles. Gift them to a friend, or to yourself. 


FORNASETTI

A Candle For The Maximalist.
This person thinks dressing monochrome is completely boring. Why would they do that when there are roughly 10 million colors in the universe? The artist Fornasetti became obsessed with the face of 19th century opera singer Lina Cavalieri and paid homage to it in multiple forms. In this one, she’s shown like the goddess Flora, surrounded by hydrangeas, and scented with white rose and jasmine.


DIPTIQUE

 

A Candle Your Snobby Friend Would Love.
Your friend was into Diptyque back in the day when you had to travel to Paris to get them. Your friend still secretly likes them, but hates that they appear in every yoga studio and Lower East Side restaurant. This one has no obvious logos, and the swirly, marbled vessel was created using terre melee, a clay technique from the 1800s. The scent is spicy and floral, inspired by the potpourri in the brand’s original first store.

AESOP

A Candle For The Purist.
Your friend only wears white or black. Sometimes, if they feel like changing it up, they’ll add navy or gray. This candle comes in a pure white, matte vessel that will instantly relax them and fit into their minimalist home. The scent was inspired by the Greek Egyptian philosopher Ptolemy, with a resin-y, woodsy smell that calls to mind ancient Japanese forests.

MUTHA

A Candle for Everyone.
100% of the proceeds for this candle goes towards fighting racial injustice. It’s a subtle reminder to never let the fire go out on this fight.

OTHERLAND

A Candle For Your Friend Who Can’t Wait To Go On A Yoga Retreat.
Somehow, your friend has kept up with their daily yoga practice every single day. It makes the rest of us look bad, but bless their heart. This is a clean, but warm scent with sandalwood, amber, and musk, that recalls lying on teak floors in savasana.

JOYA STUDIOS

A Candle For Tea Lovers.
If you or your friend hate most candle scents, declaring them too floral, too woodsy, or all smelling sort of the same, they’ll love this one. Created by NY-based Joya Studios, it smells like the mellowing vegetal smell of green tea, mixed with spicy gunpowder, herbs and citrus. Celebrating the purity of natural porcelain, wide stripes of charcoal slip make it look almost like Japanese brush painting.

JO MALONE

A Candle For Your Friend Who Can’t Wait To Go On A Yoga Retreat.
Somehow, your friend has kept up with their daily yoga practice every single day. It makes the rest of us look bad, but bless their heart. This is a clean, but warm scent with sandalwood, amber, and musk, that recalls lying on teak floors in savasana.
