6 Must-Buy Candle Lines

Lauren Golt

For The Home: Candles - The Starling Project - The LV Guide

It’s safe to say that I have a slight candle obsession…I have one (or two) in every room and I still buy more. When I come home after a long day, lighting candles is part of my “relax and unwind” routine. I just love the ambiance they bring, the scents, the beautiful packaging. There’s something cozy about a candle, don’t you think? Here are a few of my current candle lines!

Starling Candles – The Starling Project helps provide solar energy to rural communities in need around the world with the sale of their candles. Bonus: They smell amazing! My husband is obsessed. Our favorite scents are Orange Flower + Amber and Vanilla + Hemlock. We have one of each on our bedside table.

Simply Curated – Owner Sarah Cooley creates puts her long-lasting soy candles in beautiful 22k gold screen printed 12 oz glasses. When the candle is gone, I save the glasses for decoration. In fact, a few are currently sitting on my living room mantel. The Coconut Shea is my favorite!

Lafco – These are my go-to hostess gifts. Lafco candles last for 90 hours and come in gorgeous hand-blown vessels. Plus, they have a scent for every room and home: the tack room, the pool house, the penthouse, the den, the sun room, etc. I don’t think there are any spaces without a coordinating Lafco fragrance!

Apotheke – One of my latest discoveries..the Brooklyn-based fragrance maker is all about clean and simple. The scents are fresh and the packaging is simple. Buy the French Lavender in bulk; you’ll want to light it every night.

Jo Malone – I used to be an English Pear & Freesia girl, but now I’m all about the Basil & Neroli. It’s light, fresh, and clean; perfect for the powder room!

Capri Blue – I remember the first time I discovered Capri Blue in an Anthropologie store in Santa Monica; I purchased a small, hand-size, mercury glass candle with the most amazing fragrance. To this day, Capri Blue candles are my go-to gifts. Their beautiful and the scents take me away to relaxing destinations.
