Gone are the days when candles were used only for romantic candle-lit dinners. While they’re great for some light {duh}, the nice, fragrant variants can actually alter moods—it can uplift us, relax us, make us fall asleep, and even remind us of Christmas!

If one small candle can do such wonders {are candles the answer to all our problems?}, we should definitely stock up on lots of them. Want help? We’ve got your back.

Diptyque

Untitled-1A lush combination of wax and perfume, Diptyque candles are perfect if you’re in the mood to pamper yourself at home. Diptyque candles are available in about fifty scents, inspired by childhood memories, nature, or journeys, and you can get your hands on some yourself at Moon River. Although these are slightly on the expensive side, the fragrances are gorgeous enough to compensate for it. Sort of. Plus, we love that they are Instagram friendly!

Niana

niana1Fuelled by love for both fragrance and candles, Niana brought soy candles on to the scene in 2010. After that there was no looking back. Niana has a range of dreamy candle names, like Mediterranean Breeze and Honeysuckle Jasmine. If you had to pick one, we’d suggest you go for the White Tea & Berries Candle {or just pick them all}. They do bespoke collections for weddings and birthdays too.

Rosemoore

rosemooreThis UK-based brand has a variety of fragrances that fall into five main fragrance categories- floral, fruit, spice, citrus, woody, and food. The candles vary in shape, size, and cost. We love the affordable pillar candles, especially the ones in invigorating Eucalyptus & Kaffir Lime. They do have a physical store, but we’ve come back disappointed a couple of times because they run out of stock.

Where: A-3, First floor, Select Citywalk
