After so many scented candles being tasted and enjoyed, I could hardly say which my favorite fragrance or a candle is. Choosing the favorite brand is also an impossible mission. At least, I could come up with my top five candlemakers list. However, it is much easier to detect what customers like. Just take a look at our TOP 40 best-selling candles and fragrances list and maybe you will get a useful hint what should be the next amazing scent to fill up your personal space.
In this post, we are analyzing what makes these products be ahead of thousands remarkable high-end candles on the market. Including the number one – Nest Holiday Classic Candle, we have three products of this stunning brand in the first five. The most frequent in top 20 are the renowned candlemakers Tocca and Trapp with its Orange Vanilla #4 Candle as the second bestseller.
There are lots of obvious reasons that make Nest Fragrances so popular. First of all, there is an impeccable reputation of its founder and CEO, Laura Slatkin, who sells brand’s products. Known as the queen of home fragrances, this remarkable lady has developed one of the leading companies in the business that works with more than 50 world-class brands, while creating its own high-end products. In 2009, the brand’s scented candle collection won the 2009 FiFi Award – the Oscars of the fragrance industry – for “Interior Scent Collection of the Year.” If you are in the store and cannot pick one of thousands tempting products, this award should be a pretty clear recommendation.
In this moment, Nest Holiday Candles are absolute hit, starting with the bestselling Holiday Classic. The Holiday Votive is on the forth place of our bestselling product list, while the Holiday 3-Wick Candle takes the 6th place. Each of them brings the exotic flavors of a sparkling holiday season, including pomegranate, Mandarin orange, pine, cloves and cinnamon with a hint of vanilla and amber.
Since it is the most frequent name on the list, it seems that Trapp Candle brand produces fragrances that create a long-lasting impression. Whoever used Trapp’s candles, had to be thrilled with the power of their scents. At the moment, the most wanted product of this stunning candlemaker is the Orange Vanilla #4 Candle, special by the refreshing crisp orange notes elevated by the exquisite addition of Tahitian vanilla. Trapp Fresh Cut Tuberose candle is another must-have. A tropical white flower with an intense, heady floral fragrance is the perfect bland for the summer. Other Trapp’s bestsellers are Patchouli Sandalwood and Bob’s Flower Shoppe candles, as well as a Mediterranean Fig candle.
Delirium, Archipelago, Seda France, Thymes and Tocca are also brands whose products find the place in the top ten of bestselling products. What distinguishes Tocca from others is the pretty smart concept of connecting a particular fragrance or a blend of aromas with a classic movie icon or character, such as Agent 007, Rodolfo, Cleopatra, Sofia, Fellini, Giuliette, and Grace. They all convey the romantic connotations synonymous with the Tocca name, but more importantly, these easy-remembering names can quickly awake desire for already experienced flavors. Some brand’s candles inspired by movie legends are among the most sought after products on the market. However, the brand’s bestselling product is an amazing Tocca Stella Candle, renowned by a slightly sweet, never bitter and always fresh scent of blood orange. Another must-have product of this luxury candlemaker is a Tocca Feu de Touch with the brand’s signature scent – a fruity-floral accord with the notes of gardenia, pomegranate and Egyptian balsam.
Do not miss a magical Delirium Suede & Smoke candle that brings an unbelievable mix of tobacco leaves, moss, papaya, lapsangsouchong dark tea and green manda, which promises something verry similar to the brand’s name. And for the quick, refreshing touch of nature, we strongly recommend Archipelago Black Forest candle. Besides, we soon expect some of the stunning Ecoya high-end candles to enter the bestselling list.
This prestigious list would not be complete without remarkable Votivo candles. Interior designers who need to create appealing atmosphere know that Votivo candles can transform a personal space. Their high-end quality has been already recognized by many celebrities and it looks that our customers also highly appreciate the brand’s unique production concept, the naturalness of the most versatile fragrances and sophisticated design. Votivo’s bestseller is a Honeysuckle candle that bring back youthful days with the true nectar of the rambling Honeysuckle blossoms.
The majority of luxury candles meet the highest standards, such as the extraordinary richness of fragrances, long-lasting burning time, a clean, gentle glow and natural, eco-friendly contexture. Modern design and fancy packaging are also common things that you can always count on, when it comes to the top end candle brands. However, there are special moments when our senses detect something really special, a divine blend of aromas that we may want to taste every-day. Than, we can keep experimenting with other fragrances, but those must-haves will always be close to the hand and a lighter (Luminere Candle Lighter is the number 3 bestselling product on our list) to bring wonderful moments of joy and relaxation.
