I love how a fragrant candle can warm up any room in your home and can be used to enliven a room with a delicious, natural scent!
No matter what time of the year, I will always have a scented candle flickering in our home. However, when it comes to the fall and winter seasons, I especially like to rack up on candles, mainly for the transformative scents of the holiday seasons! After the thanksgiving holiday, our house is typically scented with the fragrance of frasier fir, reminiscent of the scent of a freshly cut Christmas tree! Stay tuned for my holiday scented candle picks, coming up on the first week of December!
Mostly all of my candles are purchased from TJMaxx, Marshalls, or HomeGoods. All the scented candles that I’m sharing with you today, can be used for anytime of the year and they all came from HomeGoods. They have such a variety of scented candles (which are reasonable priced), housed in reusable glass containers that can later be used for flowers or trinkets, once the candle is gone.
Let’s take a look at a few of my current favorite candles for your home!
Levitate Luxury Scented Candle ‘ Milk & Honey':
Complete with a coordinating lid, this gold ombre toned candle, is designed to be gorgeous! This luxury scented candle has a light, yet sweet scent with notes of milk and honey…perfect for a master or guest bathroom.
Cereria Terenzi Evelinio – Le Coloniali ‘Amber':
Made in Italy, this scented candle has notes of amber. It is not overly woodsy, like some amber scented candles smell. One sniff of this candle and you automatically feel a sense of relaxation! This candle is perfect for burning in a master bedroom or guest bedroom.
DW Home ‘Peppered Citrus':
This hand poured fragrant candle has a spicy peppered citrus blend…perfect for the kitchen. Anytime we cook something that can leave a lingering cooking odor, i.e. garlic or onions, we can depend on this candle to eliminate those types of smells!
Cereria Terenzi Evelino ‘Cinnamon Orange’
Another candle made from Italy, is this cinnamon orange scented candle. I love that is does not have an overbearing fruity scent. From the first sniff, you smell the main note of cinnamon and the note behind, is the orange. Another favorite for burning in the kitchen.
If you’re looking for a scented candle and are in HomeGoods, perhaps one of the above candles will be available in your local store. So take a sniff and see if you agree!

I love a good fragrant scented candle and bonus if it comes in a beautiful and elegant designed jar! And candle jars that come with a lid is great way to re-purpose as a storage jar!
Re-use your candle jars in a chic and sophisticated way by holding many things like:
- Mini flower vases
- Pots for flowering Bulbs
- Pot for an Orchid
- Makeup brush holders
- Bobby Pins
- Your stash of Perfume samples
- Q-tips/Cotton balls
- Match Sticks
- Paper Straws
- Wrapped Candy
I’ve rounded up 11 of my favorite Candle Jars…
How do you currently re-use your candle jar?
It’s no surprise my love for scented candles but holiday candles that usher in the scents of the season, is my favorite! Usually after the holidays, I will purchase sale priced holiday candles and save them for the following year. When I decided to do this post, I checked my stash and found I have FIVE holiday scented candles….Candle hoarder? Perhaps!
