For better or worse, we take beauty routines pretty seriously, so it's no surprise we love to create a little ambiance by lighting a candle or two while unwinding from a long day. But, since scent speaks to each of us uniquely, the process of committing to an everyday fragrance can be long and challenging. Knowing this, we love that a few brands out there allow us to keep it simple and shop candles that match our favourite perfumes. It makes sense, really (pun intended); why not just pick one smell you love and go with it? Keep scrolling for five favourites that both look and smell incredible.
Maison Martin Margiela's Beach Walk Candle ($60)
Not just an expert in fashion, the scented candle and fragrance combines fresh and radiant notes of bergamot, coconut milk, lemon, pink pepper, and musk to evoke memory.
Coqui Coqui's Beeswax Candle in Tabaco ($57)
Rich tropical aromas of the Yucatán Peninsula inspired Nicolas Malleville to create this scent.
Diptyque's 'Oud' Candle ($60)
Diptyque is the classic go-to candle loved for its minimalist look and universal scents. Oud is a bit edgier: Its woody composition is enhanced by incense, patchouli, and sandalwood, just like company's fragrance of the same name.
Malin + Goetz's Dark Rum Candle ($52)
One of our favorite things about Malin + Goetz is that all of its scents (in candle or cologne form) are unisex. The same is true of Dark Rum, filled with lotus root and other warm, natural notes, making it perfect for a couple or a night alone unwinding.
Tocca Beauty's Scented Candle in Cleopatra ($38)
Certainly more of a feminine and floral scent, Tocca's Cleopatra is powerful and can transform any room.
