Today’s best scented candles are more than a pretty centrepiece – they have the power to alter and enhance your mood. A clean, crisp fragrance will clear the air when you’re feeling foggy-headed, while a rose-tinted bouquet will bring a flicker of romance to a cosy evening in. For the exhausted, a lavender candle will encourage deeper sleep, and grounding cedarwood notes should slow a racing mind.

But finding the best scented candle for you (or a lucky recipient) is more than a matter of scent, because not all are created equal in terms of materials, burn time and scent throw.

The new school of soy and coconut-based candles is sure to appeal to those on a clean-beauty path. Brands such as Eym are using aromatherapy oil blends to bolster the soothing effects of a flickering flame, while emerging perfumers Sana Jardin and D.S. & Durga are shaking things up with spectacular, space-filling scents.

And of course, for a candle that looks as good as it smells, the stalwart Diptyque and Byredo still reign supreme. All of the candles below rank high when it comes to burn time and intensity – all you have to do is select the scent that speaks to you.
