Every time we get visitors at the studio they always comment on how good it smells in here – and trust me when I say that is no accident! We love trying out new candles and have found a few that are our hands down favorites.

We’ve also learned a few tips and tricks that help our candles last longer and burn cleaner. Wick trimmers and candle snuffers are for sure one of the most overlooked candle accessories. It is super important to trim your wick before burning, especially on new candles, to insure an even burn. I don’t know about you, but I want my candles to last as long as possibly, and trimming really makes a difference. I also hate the smell of candle smoke, so a snuffer is basically my best friend. It also prevents the wax from splashing around when you blow your candle out (pretty much worst case scenario!). This wick trimmer and snuffer duo is sleek, cute, and a great value for the money. They can also make a great hostess gift addition to a just a candle alone.

  1. Oh my gosh no! The smell of candle smoke is one of my favorite scents – I wish they made a candle that smells like a blown out candle!

  2. would have been nice to see a list of the candles so you don’t have to click on each link to see the scent and price. I’m sure you get credit for the clicks, but it’s your readers this way.

  3. I’ve wanted to try the sweet grapefruit but hate buying candles without smelling them first. Now I totally can!!

  4. Thank you so much for all these options!! I have the hardest time finding candles I like that are reasonably priced.

  5. Your love with candles is just like mine. I love the smell they express in the air, it makes me feel comfortable and relaxing after hours of hard-working.

  6. wish I would have seen this list a few weeks ago. Let me also recommend among the flowers new moon candle. Its made with lavender and frankincense. Its made with essential oils, nothing artificial and it has a wood wick. They have great outdoorsy scents like camp, woodland walk and even a desert inspired desert lands.
