Whenever I do a Q&A I get questions about my favorite candles!!! I originally posted this last year (and not a lot has changed) but I wanted to update it a little bit with a few updates. You probably know this but I’m such a candle addict and usually have at least one or two burning at a time. While it’s sort of holiday-y (I did include the Nest Holiday Candle and Thymes Frasier Fir which are my two FAVORITE holiday candles!) the rest of these are day to day favorites.
A new update for this year has been discovering the Jackson Vaughn candles at Society.
I love them! When I was in Dallas, Merritt was burning the JV Hudson Candle and I fell in love with the fragrance – it’s the perfect holiday candle. I got home and ordered four of them… it has notes of Juniper, Rosemary, and Evergreen and makes my whole apartment smell like Christmas.
The candle I burn most, year-round, on a daily basis is probably Maison Louis Marie No.04 Bois de Balincourt Candle which smells almost identical to Le Labo Santal 26 which is one of my all time favorites. I have several on my coffee table and one on each nightstand in my bedroom.
My other favorite is Nest Hearth. It’s smoky and delicious and makes it feel like you’re burning a fire. I used to always buy Diptyque Feu de Bois… Hearth smells exactly the same (maybe even better?) and is literally 3x the size for the same price.
