Its that time of the year again folks ! When most people are going to be decking up Christmas trees, the only change in my house will be warm, alluring candles.  Since I’m super lazy, I asked all you guys on Instagram to tell me your favourite scented candles for the holidays available in India. Here is what all of you reccomended. (The titles link to the store below)

(1) The Maeva Store

Such a wonderful collection with a plethora of scents. They have candles in jars and even cloches. The cloche jar increases longevity and keeps it away from dust. Especially love the Christmas themed ones that would make perfect gifts (Secret Santa, are you listening? ). Their website gives pretty detailed info on dimensions, weight, burn time etc and they deliver within 8-10 days.

Price Range Rs.300 – 1200

(2) Moon River

The fragrances are exquisite and out of the ordinary. Everyone would be able to find one they like. Top picks – Cannelle with Cinnamon, John Galliano with Wormwood, Sage, Coumarin, Frankincense, Iris, Musk and Gardenia, A bouquet of opulent white flowers in a twilit room in the evening.

Price Range Rs.5100 for 190 g

(3) Kama Ayurveda

The entire range is 100% organic, low smoking and slow burning. Classic and timeless scents like Kannauj rose and Madurai Jasmine with eco-friendly soy wax options. These also claim to uplift your mood and relax your senses. Anything that doesn’t contain parabens, chemicals and artificial fragrances is a definite winner in my book.

Price Range Rs.500 – 1450

(4) Jo Malone London 

Candles I’d like to try from their collection – Peony & Moss Charity, Lime Basil & mandarin, Orange Blossom, Mimosa & Cardamom. The burn time of their 200 g candle is 45 hours and all of them look SO luxurious. Another great gifting option for Mumbai peeps !

Where – Mumbai at Palladium.

(5) Niana

Niana is truly a candle lover’s delight. With scents of aromatic flowers, exotic spices and luscious fruits their candles are made from natural soy wax to boot. This means no toxins and no soot (hey, that rhymed !).

Price Range for their Christmas collection Rs.450 – 675, Signature range Rs.865 for 600 g


(6) Good Earth

Most of their candles come in decorative glass holders that can be upcycled and reused once the candle burns out. Some scents I liked from their range – Green Fig, Tuberose, Jasmine and Green Tea. You can order them from their website which delivers in 5-6 business days. (International shipping can also be availed).

Price Range Rs.1100 – 2800


7.) AA Living

One of Mumbai’s favourite lifestyle stores, not only do they have some delish candles but some of the most adorable soaps, rugs, and a whole host of other things to make you go aww. They stock different brands so go see.
