Candle crush: 7 of the best summer scent candles

To say we’re obsessed with candles is an understatement! We love how their scent creates ambience in the home and how they can be decor pieces in their own right. We’re willing the warmer weather to come sooner by switching our wintery candles over to summer scent candles that ooze sun-kissed days and balmy nights!

Finding the perfect candle can be hit and miss ā€” some smell sickly, others don’t carry scent all the way through, and don’t even get us started on those that use a wick that’s too small for the candle size which creates that annoying well in the centre.

Shop with confidence from our round up of the best candles that smell like summer!
