Each Amouage candle is carefully made as part of a very small batch and each candle is made from only the finest ingredients. Many of the candles are made with scents and ingredients that are available in Oman, where the candles are made.

Amouage focuses on making the best quality candles rather than on making a quantity of candles, and as a result there are only a handful of candle fragrances available from the company: the Amouage Autumn Leaves Candle, the Amouage First Rose Candle, the Amouage Indian Song Candle, the Amouage Mughal Gardens Candle, the Silk Road Candle, and the Amouage Spring Sonata Candle. However, each candle is a masterpiece of fine quality ingredients and unique, gorgeous scents.

The Amouage Autumn Leaves candle, for example, combines the fragrances of sandalwood, orange peel, cinnamon, honey, cloves, patchouli, and vanilla. The result is a warm autumnal scent. The Amouage First Rose candle contains the scent of the exotic Damascene rose as well as notes of geranium and frankincense. The result is a floral scent that is not too sweet thanks to a rich musky scent as well. The Amouage Indian Song combines the fragrances of peach blossoms, grapefruit, ginger, cardamom, patchouli, cedar wood, vanilla, lemon, heliotrope, cumin, and freesia. The result is a rich and exotic fragrance that is sure to be a hit in any home. The Amouage Mughal Gardens candle contains the scent of rose and lavender as well as moss, sandalwood, amber, and frankincense. The Amouage Silk Road contains notes of cedar wood, amber, patchouli, and musk. The result is a rich and exotic fragrance that is spicy. The Amouage Spring Sonata candle combines  gardenia, jasmine and lily as well as the fragrance of frangipani and ylang ylang. When you light this candle you will think you have wandered into a romantic and exotic garden at night.

All Amouage candles boast over 40 hours of burn time. The 6.9 ounce candles are beautiful and substantial and will look wonderful on mantelpieces or coffee tables. The candles are richly scented and have a wonderful fragrance even when unlit. When lit, they produce their rich aroma for the full burning times. A high quality wick ensures even burning and minimal soot.

Amouage are also works of art. In addition to creating the best quality candles, the designers at Amouage have also worked to create gorgeous packaging that makes these candles a pleasure to give and receive as gifts. Each Amouage candle is encased in frosted glass that has a gold logo silk-screened on it. The lid of the candle jar is brass with an elegant logo design. Many customers hold onto the packaging of Amouage candles to enjoy when the candle is gone.
