9 Scented Candles To Make Your Home Smell Wonderful


    Our ancestors used these thousands of years back as a source of light. However, as we saw modern-day inventions, the use of candles slowly and gradually shifted from being utility-based to more of a luxury or therapy. Enter: a sweet-smelling paradise of scented candles. From lavender to rosemary; vanilla to cinnamon, there's no dearth of fragrances for you to choose from. In fact, you'll also find wacky ones like masala chai

    These are cost-effective, the easiest addition when it comes to home fragrances, and simply teleports you to a zen zone, naturally. Scented candles continue to rule hearts (and homes) of many. Jumping right onto this bandwagon, we saw hundreds of local brands popping up and specialising in scented candles.

    Here, we round up some of our favourite scented candle brands.
