12 Candles That Are Helping Our Travel Editors Make the Most of Their Time at Home

Nothing makes a cozy work day in quite like a good candle.

By T+L Editors, October 18, 2020

The past several months have turned many of our houses into more than just the places we rest our heads: they're now the gym, salon, restaurant, daycare, school, and workplace all in one. This can make getting back to that place of respite and relaxation in your own home a little more difficult. And if there's any sure-fire way to make a space more inviting and relaxing, it's with candles.


For this reason, we've compiled a list of candle brands we've tried and loved while working from home over the past few months. Some are classics, available at Target or Amazon, some are a bit luxurious, and some are from newer, smaller brands we've had the pleasure of discovering. No matter your candle style or taste, one (or all) of these brands is bound to have something for you (and everyone on your holiday shopping list).  

Harlem Candle Co.

"Harlem Candle Co.'s Holiday candle is everything I want in a scent — it’s warm without being sweet and the pine scent is as true to a forest as I’ve found in a candle. Knowing that the brand is located right across the river from my home in Brooklyn has ignited a sense of brand loyalty that I didn’t know I was capable of. I intend to keep my home adorned with the moss-green glass jars of Harlem Candle Co’s Holiday scent for the foreseeable future." — Kendall Cornish, Associate Digital Editor
