What to look for in a Valentine’s Day candle

Scent is wholly personal, so truly, it’s up to you (and your partner, if you have another party to consider) when choosing the perfect Valentine’s Day candle. If you’re not sure where to start, a fragrance curator and go-to candle connoisseur—known as Sir Candle Man—has a few tips.

“Valentine’s Day is not complete without notes that bring butterflies, passion, and comfort,” he says. “Those would be musky floral, a deep smoky, a boozy amber, and a quality vanilla respectively.” Florals are fun and flirty, but if they aren’t your cup of tea, try a juicy, fruity scent profile; passionfruit, pear, or deep berries can all conjure up that flirtatious energy. Smoky is sexy, and amber is always a hit, he adds, “but if you don’t like smoky, you can stick to a liquor-y or candied amber. They evoke passion, deep kisses, and connection.”

Vanilla, however, remains a classic—for Valentine’s Day, date night, and beyond. “Natural vanilla is delicious because it has a woody, molasses, almost airy, amber quality. I think of vanilla as ‘the natural scent of love.’”
