Dreamy candles – whether floral or earthy scents – can set the mood in the room instantly. Lighting up a candle brings joy and you could even center yourself with a sense of calmness. Scents are powerful like that; they can invoke emotions and memories even if they’re coming from just a tiny jar.

If you’re looking to gift someone a Valentine’s Day item, why not surprise them with fragrances that resemble your traditional floral bouquets or fancy edible cakes? These days, candles are also dressed in beautiful packaging that’s adorned with pressed flowers or hearts.

Not only that, these candles make a stunning home decor which can be reused again to store trinkets around the house.

By purchasing these candles below, you’ll also be supporting local businesses based in Singapore. Happy gifting!
