11 Designer Candles That Your Fashionable BFF Will Love

While there are some amazing candles out there, there are a few that go above and beyond to bring the swank. Yes, designer candles are a thing, and if you're like me, you're going to want them all.

I’m a total candle junkie, I’ll admit it. I peruse the aisles of HomeGood for hours to find the perfect scented candle to compliment my current mood. It’s almost as if the decor in my house isn’t completely right without the addition of a good candle, which is why I think the best ones can be great holiday gifts for the home decor lovers in all of us. I know for sure that they make for a really fly Instagram post when accompanying a particularly delectable plate of food.

As a hardcore fashion or beauty obsessive, receiving a sophisticated candle inspired or created by my favorite fashion or beauty brand would be a dream. Just as chic as their RTW or beauty brand counterparts, these products certainly take the candle game to new heights. Think of it as purchasing a piece from your giftee’s favorite designer (at a fraction of the cost). These are the candles you may have not known existed — but they're so amazing, you're going to be glad you do now.
