The Best Candles On Amazon 2018


  • Best Cheap Candles On Amazon

    These are our favorites from Amazon that all fall under $2 per ounce! The dollar signs correspond to more or less pricey for this range of candles.

    • Yankee Candles

      Yankee Candle Best Cheap Candles On Amazon

      Big name brand but unbeatable price

      Yankee Candle is the biggest candle brand out there, but that doesn’t mean that they are expensive! While at first glance the large jar candles might seem kind of expensive, once you work out how much these candles will run you per ounce of wax(which is how value should be calculated) you will realize that there aren’t many options that are cheaper from any other brand. Yankee now has a HUGE amount of scents available with something for everyone. Some scents that we recommend are from the classics. Check out Pink Sands, Macintosh Apple, Autumn Wreath, or Clean Cotton

    • Capri Blue Candles

      Capri Blue Candles Best Cheap Candles On Amazon

      A favorite from the Anthropologie stores

      Capri Blue Candles have made it on many of our best of lists for good reason. Their scents are exquisite, some of the best around in fact, and they also have a good price tag to boot. These candles were made popular by being the go-to candles in Anthropologie stores. You can however find suppliers of the candle on Amazon nowadays. A word of caution with buying these on Amazon though, quite a few people have reported that their candles have been defective from some suppliers. It may be a better idea to order off of the Anthropologie website directly for these. Check out 06. Volcano, 26. Blue Jean, or Fall Leaves

      NEST Fragrances are one of my all-time favorite candle brands and was created by the former Slatkin & Co. candle creators. This company has so much experience with making quality candles and it shows as soon as you try once out. These candles are a great value for being luxury candles. When we calculated the cost per ounce of these we realized that they almost fell into our mid-range category! While these are not as pricey as some of the others in the luxury category, they can still impress just as much as the others. Unsure of which scent to try?

      Unique beeswax candles that will stand out from the rest

      We’ve posted about Candle By The Hour before on the blog and it is time to bring them up once again. These candles are unlike any others that you have probably seen in that they are coiled up wax which can be fed through a clip and burned for specific durations depending on the length that you feed in at a given time. Every 3 inches of wax fed into the clip will burn for about 1 hour. When the wax has finished burning it will self extinguish so there is less worry of any accidents(we still recommend NEVER leaving a candle unattended).

      Best Citronella Candles On Amazon Melt Candle Company

      Extra thick wicks for a bigger flame that won’t easily go out while outdoors

      There is a big debate on how effective citronella candles are for repelling mosquitoes and other insects. We have some experience with other popular citronella candles on Amazon that are branded at being great for repelling mosquitoes but found that these candles with their thicker wicks worked much better. They acted more as citronella torches and if placed in a perimeter around seating areas do seem to work quite well.
