I'm Obsessed With Candles—Any of These 18 Spring Ones Will Bring You So Much Joy

The days are getting longer, the sun is (occasionally) shining, and daffodil season is well and truly upon us, which can only mean one thing: Spring is here. For me, the onset of spring is far more than just a change in season; it’s a feeling, a state of mind, and is more evocative of new beginnings than January will ever be. So naturally, in the sprit of nourishing and refreshing my space for the season ahead—and as a self-confessed candle obsessive—I rely upon the best spring-scented candles to bring the season to life.

As the dark, grey days of winter finally lift, I’ve been setting aside cosy, warm candles with notes of amber, wood smoke, and leather in favour of those with lighter, brighter spring fragrance notes. Think romantic florals, leafy greens, sweet fruits, and sunny citruses. The best spring candles are bound to get you in the mood for spring cleaning, the perfect accompaniment to throwing the windows open on a sunny Sunday morning or arranging a bouquet of fresh blooms on your coffee table. Truly, nothing elevates your mood (or your home) like lighting a fresh candle.
