The Best New Candles Launching Summer 2021
Created to complement the balmy summer days ahead, the Venus Candle by Evermore featurea a soft, floral blend of gardenia, jasmine and carnation, delicately married with base notes of velvet musk, amber and tuberose.
Okay so technically the Lavender Candle by P.F. Candle Co. isn’t a new fragrance – it’s an old favourite brought out the vault for a short time. It’s filled with the aromatic floral notes of French lavender and lily, while bergamot and lemon top notes elevate the fragrance. A base of woody cedar and lavender musk add depth and warmth, creating an easy, relaxing daytime scent.
The Tuberose Myrrhder Candle by D.S. & Durga is a darkly floral fragrance featuring tuberose, caked with spicy Ethiopian myrrh, cacao, currant, and dank Madagascar vanilla. D.S. & Durga never disappoint, and this floral fragrance is an absolutely glorious addition to their fragrance line-up.
With notes of bursting lime, ripe watermelon, summer grass, and dried chili the limited edition Watermelon & Chili candle from P.F. Candle Co is the ultimate sunshine scent. If you like Sweet Grapefruit, Los Angeles, or Swell, you’re going to love this one.

This new scent from P.F. Candle Co. revisits their Californian stomping ground, this time taking us to the Eastern Sierras. The fragrance is woody and dry with delicate herbaceous sage and juniper notes.
