12 Cozy Candles to Brighten Up Your Home This Winter
Lean into cold winter evenings with these seasonal candles that will instantly make your home a little merrier.
Grab a cozy blanket, a good book and a pair of slippers. While the weather outside may be frightful, curling up with hot cocoa while a candle flickers is so delightful. We rounded up some of the coziest scented candles to burn when temps drop to scary new lows. (Psst, don't forget matches!)
Aside from the absolutely adorable vessel, these candles come in three seasonally appropriate scents: Gilded Cassia offers a fresh apple and berry scent mixed with warming clove and cinnamon; Fresh Balsam and Cedarwood evokes fresh evergreens sugared plums and citrus; Silver Conifer gives off classic pine, fir and spruce scents with a sweet vanilla base.
A bit of a departure from traditional grounding and warming winter scents, this candle from Nashville-based candle company Paddywax gives off lively, fresh top notes of spearmint and eucalyptus. Smoked cedar and spiced balsam round out the base. The green enamel vessel can be reused after the wax melts for decorative storage or a vase.
KarmaLit will take you through the change of seasons right up to the New Year. Three hand-poured soy candles, made in Denver, come in this set: Cozy Nights, which has notes of orange and pine; Front Range, which is intended to turn your living room into a Christmas tree farm; and First Snow, with hints of both peaches and pine.
Try something fresh, zesty and spicy this winter to uplift your spirit. This gourmand fragrance from Crate & Barrel is reminiscent of a simmering stovetop pot of oranges, cloves and cinnamon. It's the perfect crisp and refreshing scent for the kitchen or bathroom.
Imagine curling up with a new read next to a roaring fire in a creaky old book store, piping hot spiked mulled cider in hand. That's the cozy feeling this Byredo candle evokes, with scents of leather, vanilla and patchouli plus a hint of plum and violet.
