Following the release of Netflix's hit series Emily in Paris's third drama- and fashion-filled season, I was left with only one lasting image I couldn't get out of my head: the rolling lavender hills of Provence that the hit series practically dedicated an entire episode to. When Sylvie and her on-again, off-again husband weren't getting chased out of the lavender fields by bees during a late-night romp, viewers were blessed with just over 20 minutes of picturesque views of the popular French destination.

For anyone who has no immediate plans to hop on a plane and experience the rolling hills of Provence in person, scented candles with notes of lavender may be the perfect solution. Keeping that energy, I've rounded up 12 of my favorite candles that feature notes of luscious lavender as well as a few other floral fragrances I'm loving lately. If you're ready for a heavy dose of lavender, you'll want to keep scrolling!
