Tropical scented candles are some of our favorite candles to burn during the long summer months. The smell of tropical fruits like mango, coconut, banana & citrus create a relaxing atmosphere that inspires dreams of cocktails on the beach. Below are some candles from top selling candle manufactures that capture the rich smell of the tropics.
Yankee Candle Bahama Breeze
One of Yankee Candle Company’s most popular candles is their Bahama Breeze which is described as having the tropical scents of pineapple, grapefruit and mango. It grades out very well, with a 4 out of 5 rating on both Amazon & Bed, Bath & Beyond. Of the few low online rating this candle has received, most complained about a lack of scent, which is a subjective quality in candles. Most reviews say that the Bahama Breeze candle is a fresh, clean scent and not an overpowering sweet smell. It is also evident through the online reviews that the mango scent is the most dominant in this candle. But this candle is one of the best you’ll find if you’re looking for a nice tropical, beach scented candle.
Our Own Candle Company Tropical Paradise Candle
Our Own Candle Company also captures sweet tropical scents in their Tropical Paradise Candle. This 13oz mason jar candle burns for up to 100 hours and features aromas of coconut, pineapple, bananas & fresh passion fruit. Online ratings for the Tropical Paradise candle are good, with the Amazon rating coming in at 4.2 out of 5. Most of the positive reviews noted a pleasant smell with the coconut & pineapple really coming through. There was also an appreciation of the value, as the 13oz jar candle retails for $9.99, cheaper than most other national candle brands.
Colonial Candle Tropical Nectar Candle
National candle brand Colonial Candle has a wide selection of tropical & fruit scented candles. But when it comes to summer, we find their Tropical Nectar candle the best. This candle joins the scent of citrus & starfruit with strong notes of cane sugar to produce a sweet & fruity experience. We found this candle to have a strong throw, filling up a room quickly, and continuing after the candle had been extinguished. The Colonial Candle Tropical Nectar candle can be purchased online at the Colonial Candle website.
Diamond Candles Tropical Retreat Ring Candle
Diamond Candles of Durham, North Carolina is widely known for their ring candles. After the candle is burned, a ring valued of at least $10 can be found in the container. Diamond Candles makes a great smelling candle for summer in their Tropical Retreat Ring Candle. This candle features strong scents of coconut & green banana, with more subtle notes of citrus. As one online reviewer noted, “it smells like you’re in Hawaii”. This candle sells for $24.95 on the Diamond Candles website.

Anthropologie is well known for their apparel & clothing accessories, but the company also sells a line of great smelling candles. One of their candles that is perfect for summer is the Capri Blue Volcano candle which has mango, mandarin oranges & other tropical fruit fragrances.
