Whether you prefer florals or spice, light one of these and cast the perfect glow

1. Miller Harris

£36, in Geranium bourbon, millerharris.com

The floral Geranium Bourbon smells like a summer garden after a shower, with notes of Turkish rose, spicy vanilla and patchouli.

2. Floris

£40, in Tea Rose, florislondon.com

From a company with roots in the 1800s, it's not surprising to find elegant packaging and a scent that evokes an English garden.

3. Cire Trudon

£85, in Odalisque, net-a-porter.com

This brand is available on one of the internet's best-regarded shopping sites, Net-a-Porter, so you will earn style points for owning its candle.

4. Fornasetti Profumi

£99, in Mani, united-perfumes.com

The scent of this candle, with notes of thyme, cedar and tolu balsam, was created by master perfumer Olivier Polge.

5. Molton Brown

£36, in golden solstice, moltonbrown.co.uk

A smokey fragrance blended with birch oil, cedar, cade oil and amber to evoke evenings round a campfire.

6. Jo Malone

£38, in Blackberry and Bay, jomalone.com

Keep your eyes peeled for the arrival of Jo Malone's latest scent, Blackberry and Bay, which launches next month.

7. Yankee Candle

£24.99, in Lavender Chiffon, Yankee Candle, yankeecandle.co.uk

Yankee Candle should be the go-to place if you adore candles but don't like to burn too much money.

8. Campaigne de Provence

£27, in anise and patchouli, ilikeithereboutique.com

This retro-looking candle has 46 hours of burning time so will last you around a month if you light it every night for a couple of hours.

9. Acqua di Parma

£50, in Spicy Accord, 01932 233861

Not your average scented candle – there is no glass casing here, but a large square red candle stamped with the Acqua di Parma logo.

10. Diptyque

£25, in Jasmine, diptyqueparis.co.uk

The fashionable choice when it comes to home fragrance. Diptyque, which hails from Paris in the Sixties, is considered the brand.
