Many of us dedicated the last year or so to making our homes as cozy and comfortable as possible, since we had never spent as much time in them before. One of the easiest ways to practice self-care at home was to light a candle. In fact, even celebs were in on that not-so-secret mood brightener.
That’s why Tracee Ellis Ross herself launched a candle with her haircare company, Pattern. “It’s more important than ever to take the time to relax and recharge, to find beauty in slowing down and seeking solace,” she says in a release. “Our new candle pulls from our signature Pattern fragrance beloved by customers to soothe the senses and create calm wherever you are.”
Take a cue from the Blackish actress and light up a scented candle in your abode. From woody fragrances to fresh florals, these are the best scented candles to shop now from Hollywood-loved brands.

1. Pattern Scented Candle
Tracee Ellis Ross wanted her first candle to be a nod to the signature Pattern fragrance that’s found in her haircare range, a combination of neroli, rose and patchouli. A blend of sweet florals that is also light and clean, the earthy candle is made from high quality soy-blend wax to burn cleanly. The delicate scent is a delight in any room, whether you want to light it by the bathtub or in a reading nook where you can curl up with a good book.
2. Diptyque Baies Scented Candle
From Kate Hudson to Meghan Markle, the French fragrance house has a very long list of celebrity fans of its luxurious candles. One of the best scented candles, Baies is a Diptyque classic. It captures a bouquet of freshly cut roses mingled with blackcurrant leaves. Made in France, it comes in the brand’s iconic glass vessel that makes a style statement, too.
3. Byredo Cotton Poplin Scented Candle
The striking all-black wax and mouth-blown glass vessel lends this candle instant sophistication, and it smells as good as it looks. Handmade in France from Byredo’s iconic black wax and cotton wicks, the Cotton Poplin scent features a top note of blue chamomile, a heart of crisp linen and white cedarwood, and a base of sweet musk. Light it whenever you want to freshen up your home like Taylor Swift and Jennifer Aniston, who have both professed their love for Byredo’s candles.
4. Tom Ford Rose Prick Scented Candle
Leave it to Hollywood-loved fashion designer-turned-filmmaker Tom Ford to create a candle that is just as sensual as it is sassy. If you’re looking for a rose-scented option, then this is the best candle for you. The fragrance was inspired by Tom Ford’s private rose garden that is filled with a range of rare breeds. The floral blend includes petals from May, Bulgarian and Turkish roses, with Sichuan pepper and turmeric added to spice things up.
5. Molton Brown Tobacco Single Wick Candle
Molton Brown has earned a Royal Warrant from the royal family, so if it’s good enough for the Queen of England, then it’s certainly fit for anyone who wants to infuse their space with luxury. Warm and woody, this candle delivers 40 hours of burn time. The toasty blend features top notes of elemi, bergamot and grapefruit; heart notes of cedarwood, nutmeg and rosewood; and a base of tobacco, leather and Peruvian balsam.
6. Anecdote Candles Comfort Zone
Not your typical candle company, Anecdote Candles is all about scents that are inspired by feelings and moments, taken straight out of real life. Take Comfort Zone, for example, which “smells like the joy of missing out.” That sentiment is achieved through the blend of coffee and cedarwood. All Anecdote Candles are made from a coconut-soy wax blend and cotton core wicks and are hand-poured with natural ingredients.
7. Nest New York Amalfi Lemon & Mint Candle
If you can’t make it to Amalfi, this vacation-inspired candle is the next best thing to a getaway on the Italian coast. Nest teamed up with photographer Gray Malin on a limited-edition collection of home fragrances that feature his iconic images. This citrusy candle evokes the Amalfi coast with zesty lemon, orange bergamot, fresh mint and driftwood.
8. Nomad Noé Pioneer in Tasmania Sea Salt & Coconut Candle
Imagine a pristine beach, basking in the late morning sun, and you have this delightful Nomad Noé Pioneer candle that is designed to cleanse the senses and boost creativity. The luxe cotton-wicked candle spotlights sea salt, coconut and laurel, and is hand-poured from a vegetable wax blend into a porcelain vessel.
9. Acqua di Parma Buongiorno Candle
Accurately named, the muse of Acqua di Parma’s refreshing Buongiorno candle is the sunrise in Italy, specifically when morning light peeks through the window and a soft breeze carries the scents of the Italian countryside. That is recreated with fresh notes of Italian lemon, jasmine and cedarwood.
10. Malin+Goetz Cannabis Scented Candle
No, this candle doesn’t actually smell like marijuana. Instead, it’s a bold and spicy scented candle that will warm up any room for up to 60 hours of burning time. The best-selling candle features top notes of fresh lemon and orange, middle notes of fig and pepper, and a base of oakmoss, sandalwood, amber and patchouli.
