When it comes to personal scent, I am something of a fragrance junkie. From celeb-approved perfumes to the scent that fashion girls swear by, I love experimenting with new aromas but pride myself in being able to find the best expensive-smelling scents that don't cost the earth. (Trust me—there's a £13 body mist that I discovered on the high street that I always get compliments on when I wear it.) And when it comes to home fragrance? Well, I'm similarly obsessed.
Now that the clocks have turned back, my fireplace has become a vessel for scented candles. After all, why light just one when you can light five? So, as someone that's always on the lookout for candle recommendations to add to my collection, I thought it might be interesting to see which scented candles the A-list fragrance their own abodes with.
From Meghan Markle to Jennifer Aniston, keep scrolling to shop the best scented candles according to my favourite celebrities.
Before she was the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle used to regularly take to her own Instagram and now-defunct lifestyle website, The Tig, to share products that she was loving. Since joining the royal family, her social media has been deactivated but Diptyque's Figuier was one of the candles that was often spotted in snapshots of Markle's home. And it's no secret that she's a fan of the luxurious French brand. In fact, a representative for Diptyque told InStyle that "fresh and floral" candles from the fragrance house were actually used to scent the royal wedding.
"I really like things to smell nice, and I find these so perfect because Cire Trudon candles are very potent," Chung told The Strategist. "They smell sort of like a wealthy 60-year-old man's smoking lair. And I love that. I'm drawn to a more masculine scent rather than anything floral. I like things that are woody—it's from growing up in the country I think—and things that smell like grass or a bonfire. That's why Byron is my favourite."
Not only is Poppy Delevingne a fan of wearing Jo Malone fragrance—"I've been wearing Red Roses since I was 22," she told Vogue—but her home smells of it too. "My home is overflowing with Jo Malone London candles and I scented my wedding with Orange Blossom, which still gives me butterflies."
"Before I lived in my own house, I'd have a bunch of candles for my room in my parents' house, and they would last forever. But now that I have this whole house, every room must have a scent," Selena Gomez told Into The Gloss. "And I want them to be lit every night, because it just feels so good—I'll light them in the piano room where we always have jam sessions or even during the daytime when I'm doing my makeup. My favorite scents are Voluspa Mokara and Voluspa Saijo Persimmon, neither of them are too expensive."
"My flagship store on Dover Street is all about awakening the senses, and scent was a really important piece of the store experience, Beckham told The Cut. "Over time, Diptyque’s Figuier Vert candle has become our signature fragrance—everyone who walks in always talks about the amazing smell of the store, and that’s just because of the candle. I love the warmth of fig wood so much that I often have one for my office, too."
