Monday 20 August 2012
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.
£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.

£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.

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.

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