Our favourite scented candles
A scented candle is a property styling staple. Not only do they look gorgeous but they make your home smell lovely, mask any unwanted odours and add a touch of ambience. We love to go for candles in gorgeous vessels so that they can be reused as home accessories and decorative storage containers after use.
Here’s the roundup of our faves:
Best for Ultimate Luxury
For a truly luxe splurge we love Cire Trudon candles from Maison Trudon. Hailing from Normandy in France with glass vessels handmade in Tuscany, these decadent candles make lovely gifts or a stunning home accessory. Pricing for these candles starts at around $100.

Best for a Feminine Touch
Inspired by Japanese paper making, Voluspa’s Japonica is one of the best sellers in their extensive range. Made from coconut wax the scalloped edged, etched glass vessel with custom tinted glass will make a lovely canister for cotton buds in your bathroom. The Panjore Lychee fragrance is citrusy, fruity and delicately feminine. Pricing from $20.

Best for Hipster Cool
The quirky candles from Alchemy Produx are the brainchild of a Melbourne duo who combined their love for chemistry and fashion to create a 100% natural soy wax candle range. We love the chemistry inspired vessels like beakers, conical flasks and decanters. Pricing from $49.00.
