The 10 Best scented candles
Whether you prefer florals or spice, light one of these and cast the perfect glow
1. Miller Harris

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.

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.

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

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.

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