I love candles and I love love. When you combine my two favorite things, you get Valentine’s Day candles. For every reason you might be celebrating this February 14th, we’ve put together a customized list of the best candles. Maybe you’re throwing a Galentine’s rager, or maybe you’re going out with a new fling. Whatever the reason, there’s a candle for you to burn. Below, find 12 candles I’ve known and loved for every type of V-day celebration.


For the Hopeless Romantic

Overose Nudesse in Pink


Infused with actual roses, this candle is everything he’s not every cheesy RomCom line in one place: “I’m just a candle, burning in front of a girl, asking her to smell me.”

The roses are balanced with the sweet smell of fresh rain. I have this candle, I love this candle, I would hold a boombox in front this candle’s house. 


For the New Crush

Sunday Forever’s Loverboy Candle


A candle that reminds you of your latest fling. The candle’s notes include musk, wood, and citrus. It’s the perfect balance of feminine and masculine, sweet and sour, rough and refined. Burn this while you gaze into your loverboy’s eyes. 


For the Longterm Relationship

Diptyque Centifolia Candle


Diptyque’s Centifolia candle is inspired by a field of roses that have been cultivated in the Grasse region of France since the 16th century. You’ve been coming up roses for years and this candle is further proof of your amour. 


For Those Who Like Bad Boys

Boy Smells Kush


The notes include cannabis, suede, white musk, tulip, and amber —aka the makeup of all bad boys. If Jake Ryan, Daniel Cleaver, and Jess Mariano could take candle form it would be in Boy Smells’ Kush candle.


For Relationships Labeled “Let’s not put a label on this”

Madewell Large Matte Glass Candle


Described as ”a sunny afternoon in a French garden” Madewell’s Rosewood cassis is a mix of scents like cassis, green ivy, pear, and rose. Like your relationship, this candle is complex. 


For the Love of Your Life: Your Mom

Fornasetti ‘Ortensia’ Scented Candle


A candle made to live in your childhood home. Give the gift of white rose and jasmine to your mom this V-day, and she’ll quickly forget you haven’t called her in days. 


For those Who Like An Accent

Jo Malone London Peony & Blush Suede Luxury Candle


London-based Jo Malone’s mixture of peony and blush suede are the ultimate luxury purchase. You’ll be back to your days of studying abroad in no time. 


For the Galentine’s Day Shindig

Volupsa Japonica Chawan Bowl Two-Wick Embossed Glass Candle


With notes of ripe plum fruit, bloom petals, and crushed currants, this powerful candle will fill any room. Keep it burning as you dance the night away at home or binge watch Killing Eve with your friends. 


For the Casual Hookup

Urban Outfitters Botanique Candle


So you don’t want to commit to a very expensive candle, but you still want to burn something nice? There’s a candle for that. This soy wax option comes in lavender clove, mimosa fruit, and orange agave. 


For the Aspiring Sugar Baby

The Sant Ambroeus X Le Labo Candle


This one is for you, LaLa and Rand. (Shoutout Vanderpump Rules!) Sant Ambroeus and Le Labo partnered on candle with the sweet scent of the perfume Santal 26, creating the perfect balance of smoky and leathery notes. Pairs best with Range Rovers, private jets, and intimate pasta dinners. 


For the Conscious Uncoupling

UnLiving Glacier Candles


Brynjar Siguroarson’ Glacier Project candles are a not-so-subtle commentary on global warming. When lit, the glacier candles melt and disappear just like our ice caps. A candle that can also symbolize your inevitable conscious uncoupling.


For the Elevated Basic

Otherland Candle


If a Pumpkin Spice latte is beneath you, but you’re still in the business of constantly burning candles, this candle from Otherland is for you. Notes of frothy milk, cardamom, and praline woods create the ultimate cozy vibe.
