    Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "This divine candle came beautifully packaged in a sturdy cream, gold-trimmed box, tied with a black ribbon. The candle itself smells incredible.

    Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "My niece bought me this last Christmas and I am obsessed. Everyone that comes into my home when this candle is burning asks about it. My friends say the smell is very 'spa-like.' Honestly, the smell is absolutely addicting. I have bought six or seven more candles for myself since then, and have bought some for family and friends as well. This is the best-smelling candle ever, and it burns a long time!" β€”psf

    7. These 10-inch scented candles that don't drip or smoke.

    Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "These candles are superb. A refreshing, light scent and they burn so clean. My mother always burned these on Christmas Eve and when I moved from Pennsylvania to Texas, I couldn't find them in stores, so took to the internet. I'm so glad I found these and will order more who seem to know nothing about the tradition of 'burning to the socket for money in your pocket'." β€”Judy

    8. This calming candle that's scented with a comforting blend of eucalyptus and spearmint.

    Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "Great little candles. Up close, of course you can tell that they are not real, but at a distance the bright, flickering bulbs look amazingly realistic. And now, six weeks later, I've bought a second box to take on a camping trip to illuminate our dining tent. These little guys are the best." β€”Mike

    Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $9.99.

    11. A cozy-smelling candle that you'll love regardless of whether or not your grandpa actually smoked a pipe.

    12. This candle that comes in a ~trendy~ glass jar that you'll want all your guests to notice.

    @paddywaxcandles / Via

    Promising review: "Close your eyes and imagine that you live in a cabin in the woods, surrounded by towering pine trees and creeping wildflowers. You live with your handsome, bearded husband who built the cabin with his own two hands. You go inside holding a basket of vegetables that you just picked from the garden, and a wave of warmth embraces you. You take in the scene: dried herbs hanging from ceiling, shelves and shelves of all your favorite books, and your husband sitting by the fireplace. He had been outside chopping firewood, and his strong muscles are glistening with sweat in the light. He looks up at you warmly as you enter, and you see a smear of soot on his cheek from building the fire. He sits in his favorite rocking chair, smoking a pipe, and as he pulls you onto his lap you watch the tobacco smoke drift lazily towards the ceiling. You take a deep breath and it smells sweet, musky, and earthy. It smells like home. That is how this tobacco and patchouli candle smells." β€”Alyssa

    Get it from Amazon for $15.83.

    13. A candle that eliminates the odor of pets in the home and comes in 15 different scents, including this seasonal one.

    Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "I have purchased several of the Pet House candles in different fragrances and have not been disappointed. The fragrances are strong enough to cover the odors that often come from having two large senior dogs who live indoors, but are not chemical-smelling or over-bearing. I'm very pleased with the range of fragrances offered, as well as the price and the longevity of the burn time. Great product!" β€”ddmarie

    Get it from Amazon for $21.95.

    14. This fir-scented candle in the most festive jar that was made for the holiday season.

    Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "This candle smells amazingly fresh, warm, holiday-like, and nice. It's a very elegant candle. If you're tired of searching through all the disgusting candles that all smell like Febreze, Glade, or some other cheap grocery store spray, this candle is the angelic heaven scent you've been hoping to find all this time." β€”Don K

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    15. This buttered maple syrup candle that looks and smells simply delicious.

    @crossroadscandles / Via

    Promising review: "There is no better smelling candle in existence. Crossroads candles burn longer and stronger than any other brand. Buy them. No seriously. Do it." β€”Wes

    Get it from Amazon for $21.96.

    16. And a set of tall battery-operated candles that are great to flicker while you're unwinding before bed.

    Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "These candles are amazing! I gifted these to my mother and when I came by her house a few days later, they were lit up on the mantle by the TV β€” they looked just like real candles. The way the 'wick' moved was awesome, as it really replicates the action of a real flame. These are great for lighting up areas that you can't have a real flame like dorm rooms." β€”Katelyn Gonos

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $27.39.

    Honestly, aren't candles just the best?!
