It's important to find joy in the little things—like long walks in the park; finding your favorite mascara on sale; or the moment your morning coffee is just right. And sometimes, those little things are luxury candles. Lighting up a great-smelling scent can make humdrum days bearable when you suddenly get a whiff of sea salt, transporting you to a beach in New England. Most importantly, luxury candles are just really pretty, and you deserve to treat yourself to one (or three!) to make your home feel cozier. 

To aid in your purchase, our team of experts at Marie Claire, reviewed their favorites (hello, Diptque candles!), in addition to luxury candles with five-star reviews and timely holiday favorites. Whether you're looking to upgrade your candle arsenal (can you ever have too many?) or gift a few to your bestie, we have you covered.
