7 Candles That Smell Like SummerJuly 16, 2019
All of Maison Margiela’s REPLICA fragrances transport you to favorite moments. In this case, it’s a sandy beach in Calvi, France in 1972.
First of all, all Vancouver Candle Co. candles are seriously chic thanks to the signature sleek black packaging. These soy candles are made of essential oils and fine fragrances with the purpose of providing aromatherapy benefits. This one’s meant to help you “restore,” a.k.a. find your calm and serenity, with notes of lemongrass, jasmine and mandarin.
There’s something about a Diptyque candle that instantly gives any space an upgrade (see every shelfie ever). Lys/Lily is the newest launch from the brand, and it’s a green, fresh-smelling scent that will remind you of taking a trip to your nearest bodega for lilies.
For a candle that will take you right back to long days spent with your fellow campers, meet the Homesick Summer Camp Candle. It’s a mix of fragrances, including grass, sunscreen, smoke and sandalwood. This is truly your camp experience in candle form.
We can’t take a trip to Bath & Body Works without splurging on at least one new candle. This one smells like a subtle floral mix of coconuts and mandarin. Be warned: you will want the body lotion and home fragrance, too.
This is the type of candle that you’ll sniff approximately 100 times before giving it its first light. It’s one of Waax Buffalo’s newest scents for summer and smells like a mix of sweet lemon-lime goodness.
First of all, can we take a moment to talk about how pretty this candle’s packaging is? The candle celebrates Hollywood — the vibrant energy of its people and the blue of the ocean. It’s a fresh, fruity scent with a hint of woody notes that you’ll want to light on repeat.
