Quality, affordable candles aren’t easy to come by. While the market may be overflowing with pricey fragranced candles and cheap imitations, a solid scented candle that doesn’t cost a fortune is surprisingly hard to find.
Fortunately, after a little digging on Amazon, we discovered a popular candle that doesn’t just smell amazing—it won’t cost you an arm and a leg either.
What it is:
Simple, chic, and sublimely scented, Mrs. Meyer’s Lavender Clean Day Candles are best sellers on Amazon for a reason. Not only are these sweet-smelling soy candles composed of all-natural ingredients and essential oils, they come in graciously sized reusable glass jars that can be repurposed into anything from succulent pots to pen holders after they run out.
Why it’s great:
Made of plant-derived materials such as vegetable (soy) wax, this sleek 7.2 ounce candle boasts a whopping 35 hours of burn time. That a week’s worth of post-work apartment bliss packed inside one cute jelly-style jar (which would be great for repurposing, by the way).
And did we mention these aromatic marvels currently come in packs of two for less than 15 buckaroos a pair? Translation: You can keep your apartment smelling heavenly for days, for just about $7 a pop.
Just read what customer Atari Harikari had to say in a five-star verified review of the candle:
I have quite an addiction to Good Sense and I’ve used everything from Bed Bath & Beyond, Bath & Body Works and Yankee Candle Company candles and waxes. Once you try Mrs. Meyers, there’s no turning back. It’s the absolute best scent (lavender) and smells the house up incredibly fast and wonderfully yum!
With reusable jars and 30-plus hours of delightful burn time, it’s no surprise these unbelievably inexpensive candles make wonderful gifts. Snag a pair on Amazon today for your next housewarming gift (or maybe keep one for yourself to enjoy).
