Update your interior with these divine smelling candles that also serve as objets d’art

These à la mode vessels are just as captivating as stunning objets d’art as they are for the glorious scents they emit. From giant jars to designer scent, these are the candles that you should be filling your interior with.

Grand Celebration Jar by Ecoya
An eye-catching twist on the traditional iconic design, Ecoya’s Grand Celebration Jar makes for the perfect dinner table centrepiece. While the mighty size claims artwork territory alone, its the pearl white serrated glass that firmly cements the candles place as a crowd-pleasing conversation starter. The blended notes of white musk and warm vanilla are merely the cherries on top of an already spectacular ornamental cake.

Cire Trudon Cierge — Blue with Gold Camee
Tall cylinders crafted from the most superior wax, Cire Trudon’s Cierge candle collection is the epitome of home luxury. While we’re smitten with this sophisticated navy iteration — glossy and topped with a small gilded seal — there are an array of colours to choose between, from cherry red to sunshine yellow. (NB: These candles have been used to illuminate the Paris’ Madeleine church, and if it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for us.)

Naiad perfumed candle by Régime des Fleurs
More than just a candle, this design piece by Régime des Fleurs has been created to represent artefacts of the ancient world, drawing inspiration from civilisations that have passed. The matte porcelain holder is reminiscent of an antique bust of an ancient statue, while the candle itself (one of many from the Artefacts collection) emits notes of Egyptian mint, jasmine and vanilla to create an altogether unexpected, interesting and mature home bibelot.

Anthurium by Overose
Not one for the wallflower, this holographic glass cased candle not only injects the room with a mesmerising, splendid aroma but a burst of kaleidoscopic colour, too. Rose petals, blackcurrant berries, caladium leaves and refreshing lychee combine to create a dewy and fruity candle that’s as fun as its attention-grabbing, glass surrounds.

L’Eclaireuse scented candle by Fornasetti
Inspired by Fornasetti’s love of opera, this ceramic, jar-styled vessel is adorned with the face of Italian operatic soprano and actress Lina Cavalieri. The blended warm wood and spice scent only ignites intrigue further on what is already a curiosity-inducing home tchotchke.

Fumus Star Eye candle by Gucci 
Orange Richard Ginori porcelain is given the Gucci treatment with this striking, scented number. Inspired by the House narrative, the eye emblazoned vessel captures the dark and intense fragrance of birch, brightened up with refreshing notes of beeswax and orange leaves.

Materialism Alloy candle by Tom Dixon
Sturdy and masculine with an inherently sophisticated edge, this candle housed in an aluminium vessel is a simple home inclusion that will showcase some serious design flair. While the interesting visuals will capture the interest, it’s the unconventional vibrant wood notes blended with cool metallic facets that really sets the mood and inspires conversation — the perfect accoutrement to impress guests.
