10 Best Scented Candle Brand Reviews

Here is a list of 10 Best Scented Candle brands that will please your eyes and your nose! The list was compiled from my own candle recommendations as well as recommendations from my friends and family.

Yankee Candle

Yankee Candle is hands down one of the greatest candle companies in America. Their scented candles come in a range of delicious fragrances. A few of my favorites include Butter Cream, Vineyard, Harvest, Macintosh, Pumpkin Pie, Tahitian Tiare Flower and Maple Pancakes and Fresh Mint. I really love them all!

What I love about Yankee is the quality of the product and the amazing range of fragrances that are on the market. They always have a full line of new Holiday scents and bring back old ones with the Treasures line (Chocolate Truffle is amazing). I also love the culture of Yankee Candle. The people who buy Yankee Candles are a dedicated group (just look them up on Facebook Page) of consumers. These candles are very collectible and retired scents like “Rainbow’s End” are highly sought after. There is a reason that Yankee is #1!
