An in-house palette of fragrances — one of the largest in the world — is what distinguishes Saint Parfum from other candle and fragrance producers. With unfettered access to rare and exotic essential oils, this Seattle-based company is held in high regard for the fragrant bouquets of their candles, which are perfumed and poured by hand, as well as their made-to-order scents and diffusers.
Add some Parisian chic to your home-fragrance profile with Herve Gambs' luxe candles and diffusers — made in France, they'll lend an undeniably sophisticated air to your home, and they anchor this selection of top home-fragrance brands. We also love their topiaries: lifelike artificial flowers that you can perfume with one of the home-fragrance sprays (sold separately). "The handmade floral arrangements are beautiful on their own, but when you spray them with Herve Gambs room sprays, they function like fragrance diffusers," says home-fragrance buyer, Katherine Miller. "It's a simple way to add beauty and fragrance to your home!"
Fragrance is a powerful way to trigger an old memory—or the perfect backdrop for creating a new one. To that end, we present some of our favorite candles; we love their memorable scents (and beautifully designed packaging, to boot).
These vibrant, bracing scents will put you in a summery frame of mind. In nature-inspired fragrances like Japanese tea rose and cut hay, each will transport your brain to vacation mode.
