Luxury Candles to Treat Yourself to Because You Deserve Something Nice

luxury candles
Design By Morgan McMullen

As we enter month five of the pandemic, it's important to find joy in the little things. Sometimes, those little things are luxury candles. Lighting up a great-smelling scent can make the 11th hour of sitting on your couch more bearable when you suddenly get a whiff of sea salt, transporting you to a beach in New England. (Reminder: We're working from home during a pandemic, not simply working from home.) Most importantly, these candles are just really pretty, and you deserve to treat yourself to one (or three!) to make your home feel that much cozier. Shop our favorites, ahead.
