Lighting your favorite candles is a great way to practice self-care; the soothing scents and soft, warm glow engage multiple senses and remind us to slow down and savor every moment. Candles also make great home decor styling elements, especially when used as part of a vignette or as a special centerpiece. They’re relatively easy to find, too. Of course, just because they have aisle space in nearly every home decor store doesn’t mean they’re the right fit for your decor. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite creatively-designed scented candles. Make a statement with a uniquely designed candle that will be a home decor centerpiece.

Celebrate life’s favorite moments with a completely customizable scented candle. Available in a stylish glass jar, these scented candles feature three different fragrances: exotic vanilla bean, warm spice of life, and clean ocean breeze. Consider printing out a special family photo, your favorite digital art, or a quote you love. This custom scented candle would look great on a mantel and is a great option for special event styling, too.
