Luxury Pillar Candles

Best Overall: Yankee Candle Personalized Candle

Who it’s for: Anyone who wants specific range on their candles, as well as anyone in need of a thoughtful present for any occasion.

Who it isn’t for: Candle may be used by anybody, but fragrances and containers cannot always be combined.

Candles come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and scents, making it difficult to determine which is superior. The Yankee Candles Personalized Candle comes close with a customizable candle choice that allows you to choose all of the components.

To begin, you’ll have the option of four distinct styles: the company’s traditional jar form (22 ounces), a huge tumbler (20 ounces), a big jar (20 ounces), and a votive candle (1.75 ounces). After that, you may select from 13 different fragrances.

A label is included with the candle to ensure that it is properly labeled. This can be a photo, one of many pre-designed templates, or a personalized message you want to print on the label. You’ll also have the option of adding a personalised note to the label.

Best Splurge: Diptyque Baies/Berries Candle

Who it’s for: Those who want a classic luxury candle, as well as those for whom the choice is between a fruity and floral scent. 

Who it isn’t for: Candles with a more ornate container.

Diptyque’s Baies candle is an investment, but it’s worth it given the popularity of this product. The fragrance blends blackcurrant berries with roses for a distinctive fruity yet floral scent that no one else has.

If you’ve ever seen a bottle of this fragrance on Instagram, you may have recognized it and we’re here to tell you that it’s worth the hefty price tag if you can afford it. Though ‘Baies’ is French for ‘berries,’ the scent isn’t as sweet as one might expect.

The brand’s traditional clear glass jar houses the candle, which comes in two sizes—2.4 and 6.5 ounces—and is sold for $22 and $44 respectively. While there are additional costly alternatives available, it’s worth noting that the made-in-France candle is significantly more pricey than many other candles of similar size or larger.
