Which came first, our love of the bright patterned vessels or the delicate scents with the ability to fill a room with cosiness?! This Scandinavian candle brand is one of our most beloved, with customers regularly exclaiming it’s impossible to choose just one scent to take home. Thankfully there’s no need to choose as they do great gift sets.
There’s something about the Scandinavian way of life that captured the hearts of Shaun and Gerry, two Englishmen who found themselves falling in love with everything the Scandinavians hold dear. The bitter winters and raw landscape of the region has helped Scandinavians develop an appreciation for the cosy, with a focus on life’s small joys.
At the heart of the Scandinavian home, you’ll find a candle flickering its warm light onto the faces of gathered friends and family. The colour, scent, light and warmth of a candle flame makes any moment softer, creating an ambience of homeliness like no other.

Skandinavisk Next-Generation Collection
The Skandinavisk Next-Generation home fragrance collection launched in 2020 is more local, natural, organic, ethical and responsible.
The new base for Skandinavisk candle wax is extracted from traceable, sustainably farmed and non-GMO Swedish rapeseed oil. It is blended to burn as stably and slowly as their previous wax bases, just with less overall impact.
Glass for keeps
The new candle glass is larger and more durable for better heat protection and longer life. The glass is made in the EU, contains up to 30% recycled materials, and is dishwasher-proof for more reuse options once the wax is finished. The engraved beechwood lid is FSC-certified.
Boxes from the forest
The packaging card is responsibly sourced from Swedish forests and FSC-certified.
How to use Skandinavisk candles
- For optimal burning, trim your wick to 1/4″ before each lighting to avoid smoking and overheating.
- Always protect the surface on which the candle sits.
- The first burn of any candle should be long enough for the entire top layer of wax to liquefy. This will ensure an even burn for each light.
- Refrain from burning candles longer than 3 hours at a time, and never burn a candle when there is less than ¼” of wax at the base.
- Never leave a candle burning unattended or within reach of drafts, pets, or small children.
- Candle jar will be hot after burning, so allow the wax to cool completely before handling
- Once the flame is extinguished make sure the wick is upright and centered.
How to use Skandinavisk diffusers
- Insert at least 4 reeds and rotate the reeds weekly for the full fragrance effect.
- Will scent a room for 3+ months.
- When the perfume has evaporated, wash the glass vase in warm, soapy water and leave to dry
- Re-use as a flower vase for single stems, wild flowers, or small bouquets.
"If you’ve always wanted to visit the Norwegian Fjords, Carro recommends lighting this understated candle. Though it can’t replace witnessing the natural wonder, the uplifting mix of red fruits and wood will transport you to where the air is crisp, the water is bracingly cold, and the forests are densely blanketed with pines. "
"If Denmark-born label Skandinavisk can teach us anything, it’s how to keep your house cosy and warm throughout the winter. For the Onska candle trio, each of the sumptuous scents represents a different aspect of nature in winter. TRÆ is a delicate aroma of forests and fresh snow, SNÖ has all the crisp freshness of a recent snowfall combined with winter berries and woodland and JUL blends notes of gingerbread, melted honey, cloves and warm gløgg (Swedish mulled wine). They are housed in painted glass votives in the typical Scandi-chic minimalist style with an engraved wooden lid. The candles are crafted from sustainably sourced vegetable wax and so make a conscious gift choice. They have a burn time of 20 hours each."
"A Danish concept meaning ‘to offer courage, comfort and joy’ by creating a cosy mood or feeling of contentment. To turn your living space into a tranquil haven, light a Skandinavisk lykke scented candle and scatter cosy décor items."
"We wouldn’t have anything else scenting our bathroom. This breezy, clear fragrance is both fresh and calming, inspired by the islands of the wild archipelagos of the Scandinavian seas. It has notes of driftwood, white flowers and greenery."
"Skandinavisk have done it again: they've taken a home fragrance genre everyone seems to be doing and have managed to do a unique, transparent take on it. In this case, it's the 'fresh' aquatic scent that gets a makeover. Scent: We detect a sophisticate pine, the watery notes of musk, and a whispering hint of florals Skandinavisk do so well. The fragrance is more than the sum of its parts, though: the overall effect is airy yet distinct. Packaging: A delightful semi-opaque blue bottle with signature engravings. Simple but beautiful. What we like about it: This fragrance is fresh and sweet, but won't overwhelm your home. You can also get this in a candle version, and even matching hand and body products. Totally gift-worthy. What we don't like: The price! We wish we could afford to have one in every room of our house. It also doesn't last very long, so be prepared to replace it soon."
"A candle called “hygge” is almost guaranteed entry on to this list. It’s a light, everyday kind of scent, with notes of tea, strawberry, mint and rose; there’s not much better to burn while enjoying a cuppa. The scent is potent but not overpowering, and diffuses quickly around the room."
"HAV was one of the first scented candles that Scandinavian brand Skandinavisk created and it has recently been given a deeper, more complex scent-update for 2019. It’s a brisk, glassy cold and salty fragrance, with notes of rose and hawthorn, inspired by the Scandinavian coastline. The frosted glass jar comes with a wooden lid, which stops the wax getting dusty when not in use. "
