Bask in The Great Outdoors With These Spring-Scented Candles
Shop Aditi (NJ)
Sun & Soil
Maker: Aditi Ramesh
Spring signifies growth and this candle from Shop Aditi takes the flourishing premise to heart. This scent blends sunlight and soil, tracing the journey of a chandanam tree as it journeys from sapling to a towering majesty. Bright lemon peel, woodsy amyris, and deep, earthy sandalwood inspires a season of renewal.
Wax & Wane (OR)
Twig & Moss
Maker: Hannah Turner
Sweep your imagination away to the picturesque mountain ranges of British Columbia. Twig & Moss honors the spirit of the Cascades, hopping between peaks of fragrant evergreen-lined trails and valleys of fresh, rain-kissed moss peppered with herbaceous sage.
“Love the smell of this candle!” shares one fan. “Reminds me of the forests of my home growing up.”
Maker: Naomi Castillo
Spring unveils pops of candy-colored flowers, and delicious, juicy vegetables you can eat right off the vine. Jardín fills your senses with an armload of fresh-picked garden bounty. A savory swell of tomato, fresh basil, and potting soil saunters through the air, reminiscent of a long, sunny afternoon in the backyard.
Once the candle burns down, use the chic jar for plant cuttings or mini bouquets!
Evergreen Lane (WI)
Maker: Sara Halwix
Nothing centers the soul more than a quiet walk through the forest. Just light Wylderness to shift your mind-space without leaving your home. It’s a breathtaking sylvan meander of crushed pine needles with soft rays of lemony sunshine trickling down on wild sage and oak moss.
“I purchased this as a gift for my husband,” raves one five-star review. “It arrived quickly and is beautiful. We love it!”
Brooklyn Candle Studio (NY)
Maker: Steven Mayne
One of nature’s most romantic scents is a wash of fresh rain, captured in the mysterious word petrichor. Brooklyn Candle Studio winds the ethereal experience into a lingering blend of lavender, desert rose, sagebrush, and dusty woods. Plus, the painting on the jar is the work of a famed watercolor artist, whose graceful strokes move like rain itself.
It's a favorite amongst Brooklyn Candle Studio fans: “I love this candle! I light it for a couple hours almost every day!”
Kos Candles (WA)
God Morgen / Good Morning
Maker: Kailey Tollefson
Sink your toes into the stretch of sand that separates land from the sea. Kos Candles jars the moment when the sun creeps over the horizon, and the crashing waves spray your cheeks with a salt-kissed ocean mist. With this candle, you'll enjoy a fresh, morning wander of sea salt, key lime, dune grass, and sun-bleached driftwood.
Kos Candles recommends starting your morning with this refreshing sea-kissed scent.
The Auburn Collections (TX)
Maker: Jonatan Miranda
April showers, bring May flowers, as the saying goes! In Black Rain, The Auburn Collections captures the signature scents of early Spring. An airy, water-based aroma wafts through your space, chased by sea salt, eucalyptus, and sandalwood.
And the green tumbler adds an extra pop of spring to your decor!
135 Candle Co. (CA)
Maker: Crystal Bong
When the sun dips low, a warm, rosy glow paints the sky. The fleeting moment debuts nature’s most magical filter; a favorite amongst photographers. Golden Hour lights up your space with this enchanted time of day, radiating with a sun-splashed blend of asian pear, musk, and lily flower.
This shopper loves it: “Very refreshing and brightens up any room!”
Allison's Goods (CA)
Maker: Allison Ritto Almstedt
Throw open the windows and breathe in one of spring’s most spellbinding scents: petrichor. It’s the disarming aroma that rings through the air as rain first kisses parched land. Allison’s Goods spent a long winter perfecting the blend, weaving together a drizzle of rain, ozone, and fresh-crushed green leaves.
Adding to the experience are honey-colored citrine stones, bringing in an added touch of the outdoors!
