Furniture and home decor are essential, but nothing will complete your home like a quality home fragrance. The right home scent will not only elevate your pad, but it will create an overall sense of wellbeing.
While they might look similar, not all candles are the same. Some candles are unscented, while some scented candles are just a block of wax mixed with a dash of fragrance. The right scented candle will be made of high-quality wax, meaning it will last a good while — usually around 40 hours of burn time — as it turns your home into an aromatic wonderland.
To help you out, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite scented candles, incense accessories, and fragrance diffusers available now, including homeware brands such as Tom Dixon and Boy Smells, as well as Japanese streetwear label NEIGHBORHOOD.
Spanning iridescent, cannabis-scented candles to reed diffusers and incense boxes, our selection will up your home fragrance game. There’s something for every taste and budget, with options starting at just $32. Check out our selection of the best home fragrances below.
Boy Smells Kush candle
The Kush candle by Boy Smells comes with notes of (you guessed it) cannabis, as well as suede, tulip, and white mush — all wrapped up in a base of amber accord.
Antica Farmacista diffuser
Antica Farmacista’s reed diffuser will add a classy touch of antiquity to your room. The diffuser is made with an apothecary-style bottle and comes with notes of bergamot, ozonic saltwater, jasmine, and lavender.
Diptyque Ambre candle
This scented candle by Diptyque features a woody fragrance with notes of vetiver, patchouli, and aniseed. The sleek clear glass, which features Diptyque’s Parisian address, is a nice touch.
Tom Dixon Oil candle (medium)
Tom Dixon’s Oil candle fuses design with function. Not only does the candle come with a powerful woody scent, but its iridescent glass will refract the light to create a petrol-on-water effect. What’s more, each glass vessel is unique.
Malin + Goetz Mojito candle
This scented candle by Malin + Goetz comes with fruit and citrus scents mixed with cedarwood and vetiver notes for a fresh yet earthy aroma. Better yet, it will stick with you for a while, with 60 hours of burn time.
NEIGHBORHOOD x retaW Number One candle
NEIGHBORHOOD linked up with Tokyo-based fragrance brand retaW on a scented candle that features patchouli and bergamot notes for a relaxing and cozy vibe. The glass container also comes with NEIGHBORHOOD and retaW branding printed on the front.
Tom Dixon Oil candle (large)
Like the Oil candle above, this larger version of Tom Dixon’s shimmering candle will not only make your room smell good, it also adds a touch of steez.
Fornasetti Ortensia incense box
If incense is more your thing, this number from Fornasetti should do the trick. Eighty sticks are housed in an eye-catching handcrafted box that pays homage to the brand’s muse. This option features a musky floral scent created by master perfumer Emmanuel Philip.
Fornasetti Labbra lidded candle
Another design-heavy option from Fornasetti. This lidded candle has been hand-poured into a printed ceramic container featuring the muse’s lips laid out in a checked pattern and comes with warm thyme and lavender scents, this time created by master perfumer Olivier Polge.
