1/8 Baobab Collection High Society candle, from Flaming Queen
Designed in Belgium, candles from Baobab Collection’s High Society range feature geometric patterns inspired by the art deco movement, engraved onto hand-blown glass. The scents take their names from the protagonists of literary classics such as The Great Gatsby and Marcel Proust’s seven-volume saga, In Search of Lost Time.
Available at Flaming Queen.
2/8 Dancing Ovals candle, from Diptyque
Paris-based designer Yorgo Tloupas has created a striking candle holder to celebrate the French fragrance brand’s 60th year, featuring coloured labels specially for this milestone anniversary. The graphic lines on each vessel are a reinterpretation of the label’s iconic oval motif for four of its most popular scents: Baies, Figuier, Roses and Tubéreuse.

7/8 Aromatique Candles from Aesop
Aesop has launched its debut range of candles, created with the brand's long-term collaborator Barnabé Fillion. The Aromatique Candles, available in three scents, each bears the name of an important figure in ancient astronomy—Aganice, Callippus and Ptolemy.
The Aganice Aromatique Candle is floral, spicy and fresh; the fragrance's key ingredients are cardamom, clove and mimosa, accompanied by discreet notes of tobacco. The Callippus incorporates frankincense, guaiacwood, and bright notes of shiso; its woody, earthy, green fragrance is redolent of contemplative rituals. Lastly, the Ptolemy candle bears a resinous, earthy and woody fragrance that brings to mind old-growth Japanese forests, by dint of cedar, cypress and notes of vetiver. There is also a light smokiness among the scent notes.
Available at Aesop.

8/8 L'air du Jardin perfumed candle, from Louis Vuitton
What could be more luxurious than a Louis Vuitton candle that's encased in a white ceramic pot with natural-leather handles? Created by the maison's Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud, the perfumed candle evokes a delicate scent of blossoming centifolia rose. Inspired by the elegant fragrance that envelops Les Fontaines Parfumées in Grasse, the home of Belletrud's creative laboratory, he worked towards creating an ethereal rose without artifice—a weightless flower that imparts a sensation of eternal refinement.
Available at Louis Vuitton.
