Tis the season to fill your home with love, laughter and plenty of smell goods! Setting the mood for any occasion starts with fragrance, at least in my mind. My close friends will tell you if there is cause for celebration, I will usually gift a candle. There is just something about that small flicker of light and warm notes of aromatic delight that add a level of “hygge” to a space.

Brand loyalist and a tad bit bougie (ok, 100% bougie) when it comes to formulas and fragrance combinations. Trust me, overwhelm is not the goal. A simple sophisticated balance of fragrance notes can transform your living room or office for the good of all mankind. Yes, I’m extra.

Want a candle that burns longer than a week? Or perhaps one that you can actually smell? Whether you’re looking for great stocking stuffers or want to envelope yourself in a seductive oud or spiced citrus; here is a list of my favorite luxe scents.
