From sweet grapefruit to beachy saltwater, these five candles scream summer, and we’re here for it.
Saltwater + Lily, $36
Not only does this summery scent from Paddywax bring you straight to the beach with top notes of ocean air and middle notes of sea spray and sea moss, but how festive is this Confetti container?
This candle was love at first sight with its subdued but super-stylish appearance. Get the matte jar candle in the Coastal scent for a seasonal-friendly rush of pineapple, verbena, and coconut, sparkling lemon, bergamot and grapefruit.
Coming in at just under $500, this Jo Malone favorite not only offers a whopping 220 hours of burn time but it promises to carry its citrus scent all throughout your home.
Jonathan Adler isn’t known for being understated, and he isn’t going to start with his fab candle collection. This fresh offering smells like pink grapefruit, white grapefruit rind, green vine accords, pink freesia and passion fruit and feels like “diving into a cold pool in the middle of a heat wave.” What more could a Phoenician need in a summer candle?
Mojito Candle, $28
If a mojito doesn’t make you think “day drinking poolside,” we’re not sure what will. This new Candlefish offering would make a sweet hostess gift for the summertime entertainer paired with a muddling tool and maybe a mint plant for their kitchen windowsill.
