Sometimes a regular sized candle just isn’t enough. Sometimes you need a giant candle.

If you’ve got a big space to fill your gonna need something bigger. Extra large, multi wick, scented candles are the way to get the job done. How big do candles get? Well this post has a candle that is over 13 kg.

Yea, you heard that right. A 13.6 kg candle.

via GIPHY

There are some brands that have been making these huge candles for a while now and there is actually a good amount to choose from. (Not all of them are 13 kg)

In this post we are going to share a list of oversized scented candles. Hopefully, you can get a better idea of what’s out there, and find one that you might like.

Where to buy these giant candles

It goes without saying that these candles aren’t as commonly found as regular candles.

First of all, the size of them makes it hard to display them on store shelves with other candles.

Second, these candles are expensive. They’re expensive because there is just so much candle to them. Technically, most of them are actually cheaper than their regular sized siblings when you work out their price per ounce. But still, it sure feels expensive when you are dishing out upwards of $200 for a single candle. They can cost even more than that for the luxury brands and biggest sizes.

So where do you buy extra large scented candles then?

The easiest place is honestly online. I buy everything online nowadays. Large candles being no exception.

The widget below includes various large candles that are included in this list along with places that you can find them online:

The only negative about buying candles online however, is that some retailers still suck at packaging fragile products. Most are getting pretty good at it, but some just can’t seem to get it right.

Most of the time, when a package does happen to arrive broken, most companies that I’ve dealt with will usually just send a replacement so it’s not too much of a hassle, but it’s something to keep in mind.

The couple times that I’ve ordered a big candle like these online, it arrived in very good packaging and without a scratch on it. It’s probably because they don’t want to be sending out any free replacements on expensive candles, so they make sure they ship them safely.

22 Huge Candles You Can Buy Online Broken Down By Their Size

We have decided to categorize these candles into a variety of sizes because getting a 1 kg candle is a whole lot different than buying a 13 kg candle. Some brands only go up to a certain size and so, as we move up in size, the amount of candles in each category will lessen. Obviously. We also picked a scent to show off for each.

My price per ounce calculations should only be taken as approximations. Some companies go by weight of wax, while others go by total weight. Use the numbers as a rough guideline.

Nest is a favorite on the blog. However, I don’t believe that we’ve mentioned their 4 wick luxury candle. This candle is 1.34 kg and surprisingly, that is one of the smaller candles on this list!
