These high street candles smell so expensive

Three chic, affordable high street candles to give you a boost while WFH


Looking for a fancy new candle but don’t feel like burning your money? These high street candles all smell similar to some of our favourite luxury scents, plus they smell as good as they look.

Burspråket Scented Candle in 2020 | Scented candles, Candles ...

& Other Stories Burspråket Scented Candle, €11

I went into & Other Stories recently to pick up a new bottle of their Perle de Coco Glow Body Lotion, which I am very, very taken with. While picking it up, I caught a whiff of an open Burspråket candle on the shelf and instinctively grabbed two. It is so similar to Le Labo Thé Noir 29. From their Stockholm atelier, Burspråket, Swedish for “bay window”, smells warm, elegant and fancy, with lemon, nutmeg, oud, jasmine and vetiver, and like all of & Other Stories’ candles, is created by renowned New York-based perfumer Jérôme Epinette of Robertet. It’s so good, I’ve been taking the lit candle around the house from room to room with me.

Fresh Fig Collection | Fruity Fragrances | The White Company US

The White Company Fresh Fig Signature Candle, €13

The White Company have a ton of deliciously scented candles that all smell luxurious, but the Fresh Fig Signature Candle’s delicate and subtle fig, cassis, vetivert and lilac blend is a great dupe for the cult favourite Diptyque Figuier candle.

Zara x Jo Malone Amalfi Sunray, €15.95

Having universally delighted with her 8-strong collection of Zara Emotions fragrances from her first retail collaboration, perfumer Jo Malone has now created the scents in candle form. At bargainous prices, just like their perfume counterparts, the scented candles are €15.95 each for a hefty 200g size, and just as gorgeous, luxurious and with all of Jo Malone’s trademark light and expensive scent. If you’re looking for a new sun-drenched summer scent, Amalfi Sunray is the one you want to transform your home into the Italian coast. With bergamot, mandarin, basil and orange flower, this blend of orange heaven is most like another iconic Jo Malone London scent you’ve probably known and loved, the fresh and floral Basil and Neroli.
