The search can be difficult but it is well worth it.

10. Gerrard Larriett Aromatherapy Pet Care Lavender & Chamomile Deodorizing Candle
The Gerrard Larriett scented candle is an interesting product. It is one of the few candles that is being advertised as being for pets. More precisely it can remove pet odors which are a more than welcomed bonus for pet owners.
Talking about the fragrance of the candle, the manufacturer went for a combination of lavender and chamomile. It is a sweet scented candle that might seem a bit more appealing to women. It comes in a small 6-ounce glass and goes for a rather high price when compared with other candles with the same fragrance.
9. Yankee Candle Balsam & Cedar

8. Aurorae Scented Soy Candle
Aurorae offers many different fragrances to choose from but for our list we picked the soy scented version. It has a subtle scent with discreet notes of lavender. The candle has a sweet fragrance but it is not intense enough to become annoying in any way.
In terms of presentation, the candle comes in a small 6.8 or 28-ounce aluminum jar. It might not have the best-looking aspect but its scent surely is appealing and so is the price as it is one of the most affordable candles in our list.
7. Our Own Candle Company Blueberry Pie Scented Mason Jar Candle
Our Own Candle Company is one of the better brands. In fact, we selected multiple versions for our list but this spot goes to the blueberry pie one. It is a popular fragrance that actually resembles the real scent of a pie. Its blueberry tones add a certain sweetness that is difficult to forget.
The presentation is yet another strong point. The candle comes in a small 13 ounce much with a top lid. When the user wished the lid can be placed onto the candle which stops the fragrance from spreading in the room.
6. Root Scented Seeking Balance Energize Candle With Rosemary and Eucalyptus
Root offers multiple types of candles but their Energize versions seem to have something appealing about them. Out of all the fragrances available we selected the one with rosemary and eucalyptus scents. The candle combines discreet sweet and woody notes that makes it suitable for any type of room.
The candle comes in a small 6.5-ounce glass with a stylish cardboard lid that covers the candle completely. It has a bright orange color and lasts quite a lot. The only problem is that after a while a person can get used to the scent and may feel a bit muted.

3. Wax and Oils Scended Candles
Wax and Oils is a rather big brand in the industry. They have a lot of different products available and all of them offer pleasant scents inspired by nature. For our picklist, we selected the lavender scented version.

1. Old Factory Candles Man Cave
Old Factory Man Cave scented candle set is targeting men which are quite obvious. They attempt to do so by combining less sweet notes. The package comes with 3 different candles with scents of leather, straight razor, and mahogany.
Each candle comes in a small glass recipient and weighs about 4 ounces. They are maybe a bit small for what some would like but they last a lot. The company has multiple similar sets that combine different scents ranging from floral to fruit tones.
Scented candles are extremely popular as they offer another means to personalize a room or a home. The fragrance plays an important part which is why we focused our picklist specifically on different scents.
An important thing to look for is how intense the fragrance is. Some candles might have more powerful scents while others can be a bit more discreet. This can be difficult to judge without actually smelling them but the feedback from other buyers should help a bit.
