When the warm summer months hit, few things feel better than a cool ocean breeze. If you aren’t lucky enough to live where the trade winds blow, you can still get that easy feeling with an ocean breeze-scented candle and, perhaps, a pina colada. Here are a few of the top candles to have you feeling fine:
1. PF Candle Co. Summer Breeze Candle
This candle starts out with a sandalwood and vanilla musk base, with floral notes of tuberose, orchid, awapuhi and gardenia. Anise and lime finish off the scent, which the makers describe as “a bit like a tropical vacation in a jar.” PF Candle Co. is made from U.S.-grown soy in super small batches to ensure the highest quality possible.
2. Village Candles Summer Breeze Candle
Coconut, musk, and light florals grace this summery candle from Village Candle. Environmentally friendly soy based wax burns more slowly and cleanly than traditional candles and lets the pure scent come through. Available in a variety of sizes and types, from tea lights to large glass jars.
3. Yankee Candle Bahama Breeze Candle
Yankee Candle’s homage to summer makes you feel like you’re sipping something out of a coconut! With scents of pineapple, grapefruit, and mango, your whole home will smell like a tropical paradise. Bonus: right now, Yankee Candle is having their annual summer sale, and some of their top sellers are priced at 3 for $36.
4. Mill Valley Candleworks Ocean Breeze Candle
Sea grass, salt, and Atlantic ocean breezes wash over you as you burn this candle made by artisans in Napa, CA. These candles are made of food grade wax, they burn consistently, and smell great right down to the end. They are a great value for handcrafted candles, and come in a variety of sizes.
