Many of our customs look to US online shops to source the scented candles and essential oils they want. They can find the quality, selection, and price they are looking for. This week we are focusing on candle retailers in the US.
DiptyQue – their scented candles are their iconic product because of their unique scents and their simple clear glassware. They have the unique option to create your own gift sets. They also sell fragrances. A little bit on the expensive side.
Otherland – hand-poured candles that don’t have parabens, sulfates or phthalates. In addition to their core collection, they offer limited edition scents for each season which sell out fast.
Voluspa – on the more affordable side, this retailer selles candies in both tins, as well as glass. All Candles are made in California.
Yankee Candle – “causal sophistication”. America’s favorite brand of premium scented candles. Their Chesapeake Bay collection is particularly popular.
Some other merchants who specialize in candles to consider:
Anthropologie – ultimate destination for candle lovers (in addition to their clothing and their home items)
Bath & Body Works – check out their 3 wick candles, possibly the world’s best?
Home Sick – offers specialized candles that tap into your sensory memory through nostalgic scents. Their categories for their scents are based on countries, states, cites, and memories.
Le Labo – scents tend to be tolerated by men more than other brands
Pure & Good – sell deodorizing candles to help get rid of pet odors
The 125 Collection – urban luxury candle brand based in NYC (Harlem), named after 125th Street in Harlem. Thus their scents are inspired by NYC and pop culture.
And finally, all department stores like Khols, Macy’s, Nordstrom, Target, and Walmart, as well as Amazon, all have departments for candles as well.
