20 Luxe Candles That TZR Editors Have On Their Wishlists This Year

Share

It's hard to pin down exactly what it is that's so tempting about expensive candles. Maybe it's the fact that burning them feels like the epitome of luxury, or that they almost always come in beautifully designed vessels that make your vanity look so chic. Whatever the reason, the appeal is real — and TZR editors are clearly not exempt from that appeal. In fact, the entire team has one (or more) on their wishlist, and they're all rounded up ahead for easy shopping. Just consider this your official luxe candle gift guide for the season, because it has basically every product worth gifting (and hopefully receiving, too).

And no, they're not *all* Diptyque candles, either. While sure, it was impossible to resist adding a few (how could we not mention a three-wick Baies candle?), there are plenty of other finds the TZR team is lusting after that you'll soon be pining for, too. From a classic Le Labo scent TZR's Senior Social Media Editor loves to a massive $1,250 candle TZR's Beauty Editor is hoping for, you're sure to find a gift for every kind of luxe candle lover, ahead.

A Classic Le Labo Scent

"Le Labo Santal 26 is a longtime favorite of mine, and it ends up on my wishlist every year. The vintage tin can also doubles as great coffee table decor!" — Aidan Macaluso, Senior Social Media Editor

The Ultimate Luxury Candle

"I don't really invite people to my apartment because I'm admittedly antisocial, but I'd literally throw my block's biggest rager just for everyone to get a whiff of this massive Krigler candle. And with a burn time of 200 hours, the party will keep going on and on." — Khalea Underwood, Beauty Editor

A Candle You Can Really Experience

"I've always been such a fan of the founder, Brittney Winbush — I love that she provides an entire experience for enjoying her candles with a playlist and herbal tea mix that are curated to her scents. That said, I definitely have my eye on the Sunday in Brooklyn set." — Shelby Hyde, Shopping News Editor

A Candle That Reformation Fans Will Love

"A few years ago, I happened upon this candle in Reformation's Soho store, and have been thinking about it ever since — musky." — Aemilia Madden, Senior Fashion Editor

A Luxe Citrus Scent

"I'm a sucker for citrus scents and Nest candles, so this luxe find checks all the boxes." — Angela Melero, Deputy Editor

The Candle That Smells Like Home

"This my favorite. The candle I will always have burning in my home. It smells so warm, and really pulls on my nostalgic strings about my childhood in Virginia." — Mecca James-Williams, Contributing Senior Style Editor

A Diptyque Candle That Isn't Baies

"There hasn’t been a candle from Diptyque that I didn’t like. This Leather & Violet Duo set smells like a splendid combo." — Ryan Gale, Assistant Market Editor

A Winter-Appropriate Candle

"I'm truly obsessed with the look *and* the scent of the Maison Louis Marie No. 4 candle — it's the perfect mix of masculine and feminine and feels appropriately winter-y." — Lauren Caruso, Site Director

The Candle You'll Burn Through Way Too Quickly

"When I got my first Cochine candle last year, I fell head over heels and somehow made it last for a full 11 months (I just couldn't bear to part with it). I just got the brand's newest limited-edition candle, though, and it's somehow even better — so good, in fact, that I've burned through more than half in November alone. I'll definitely be splurging on a new one soon." — Anna Buckman, Shopping News Editor

A Subtly Scented Diptyque Candle

"I've only heard good things about Diptyque candles, so I'm itching to try one out myself! Scent wise, I go for something more subtle, so I would love to try out the Roses candle." — Kelsey Stewart, Editorial Assistant

A Restock Of The Burning Rose Candle You Probably Already Own

"Burning Rose is a personal favorite, and I've just about finished off the one I already have at home. Time for a re-up!" — Aemilia Madden

A Minimalist Pine-Scented Candle

"The scent of this candle is seriously intoxicating to me (especially since I'm a huge fan of Christmas-y smells like pine). Plus, its simple, black jar fits right into my minimalist home." — Anna Buckman

A Big Version Of Your Baies Candle

"I also love the idea of this three-wick Baies candle by Diptyque — it's one of my favorite scents, and I find myself burning through the smaller ones way too frequently." — Khalea Underwood

A Candle That Reminds You To Be Thankful

"What a lovely way to ground and remind myself to be thankful during this time of the year. The sweet blends of sage and lavender from this Thankful candle smells like a pretty amazing combo." — Ryan Gale

A Candle You'll Want To Buy Again & Again

"I just finished burning this Jo Malone candle and I'm distraught about it." — Lauren Caruso

The Candle That Smells Like Perfume

"R+Co's Dark Waves candle smells like a very attractive, very heavily perfumed person to me — and I'm obsessed. It's definitely a heavy scent, but it's perfect for winter on a cozy night." — Anna Buckman

A Candle That'll Give Your Home Festive Vibes

"I love a seasonal scent that makes my home feel like a true holiday abode and this candle delivers those very vibes." — Angela Melero

The Candle You Didn't Know You Needed

"I had no idea that Oribe even had a candle until last week and now I'm determined to get one for every room in my apartment." — Lauren Caruso

The Nature-Inspired Candle

"I love how much this candle looks as much as I love its nature-inspired scent. I want one of these in every room of my home." — Anna Buckman

The Sweet-Smelling Candle

"[This is] brimming with leather, rum, vanilla and tonka bean, all incredible ingredients for a sweet-smelling bedroom." — Ryan Gale
