The best candles have a unique way of elevating any bedroom, living room, or apartment, creating comfort and swankiness no matter the month or your mood. While some people think of candles as holiday treats to light up while prepping for Christmas, here at Allure, we encourage you to light that wick all year long because you deserve your space to feel (and smell) exactly how you dreamed it would when you got the keys.

Our Top Picks

It doesn’t hurt that candles are having a bit of a renaissance right now. The options feel endless as perfumers and candle brands play with scent combinations and accords that go far beyond the candles you grew up with. We’re talking lake water, swimsuit lycra, and even the smell of a bubble bath. Whether you’re a fan of fresh and herbaceous scents, fruity and floral fragrances, or the mahogany and musk aromas of the world, you’re bound to find several that strike your fancy. And if you’re already a candle stan, loyal to one scent and one scent only, now is the time to branch TF out (we’re looking at you, gourmand girlies).

But before you embark on your aromatherapy journey, allow us to guide you by sharing some of our favorites. Be it for yourself or a gift idea, here are 28 candles that Allure editors are reliably burning and buying again.

    P.F. Candle Co. Amber & Moss Candle

    Why We Love It: The Amber & Moss Candle from P.F. Candle Co. is a woody weekend getaway in a glass jar. The scent is reminiscent of standing beneath a canopy of foliage, the sun peeking through to decorate your face with soft yellow patches of light. It rained overnight, so the smell of moss is heavy in the low-hanging fog. We’re not getting carried away, we swear. It’s just that good.

    Key Notes: Sage, moss, and lavender

    Burn Time: 40 to 50 hours
