One of my favorite things about candles is how they can set the tone for any occasion, whether it be making a bath more calming or filling a space with coziness. What I love about Candelles is they truly have a candle for every situation. So whether you're planning a girls night in, relaxing at home, getting ready for work, or spending the night binging the latest Netflix shows there is most definitely a candle for you!


Waking up in the morning can be difficult. One of my favorite ways to jumpstart the day is with the FOCUS candle, which smells of rosemary and peppermint. Another favorite is the Sweet Tobacco candle. Both have very fresh and light scents that will get you in the mood to get stuff done!


When I think of girls night, my first thought is snacks! The CRAVE candle is sweet and vanilla birthday cake scented, which instantly has me thinking of baking cupcakes with my best friends! Now, if you're not into super sweet scents, a better alternative is the "Slice, Slice, Baby" punny candle. It smells of basil and herbs and is much lighter. I'll admit I was skeptical. The irony is I was drawn to the candle because it is pizza themed, but also a bit nervous because what does a pizza candle even smell like?! I read a review that mentioned it smelled a little like fresh bread and when I got in the mail I couldn't help but agree!


My favorite way to wind down at the end of the day is with a bath bomb and a candle. Obviously the RELAX candle that smells of citrus and lavender is a clear choice. My other favorite is the Fig and Sugar candle, which reminds me a little of the beach.


With the premiere of Stranger Things: Season 3 fast approaching, I have been picking up so many items that remind me of the show. My favorite thus far has to be the "I Like You a Waffle Lotpunny candle! It smells just like sweet maple syrup and is the perfect burn while you're rewatching seasons 1 and 2! Another candle I love is the Teakwood & Tayberry candle. Honestly, I burn this one all the time, but I especially love having it at my bedside while I'm having a movie marathon because it's not overpowering and it fills the room with a sweet scent.
