I’m a sucker for fancy candles. I remember a time when walking by the scented candles isle made me quicken my step before all the odors wrapped themselves around me like a sweet perfume I’d then be incapable of shaking off. But that only made me underestimate how wonderful they make your house smell.

After falling in love with scents of lavender, matcha, citruses and other fruit (with fancies names) and filling the house with small scented candles on the verge of burning out, I had to up my game to larger scented candles. And going into my options for larger jars, I found this wonderful new world of possibilities to play around with scented candles for home decor!

Using scented candles for home decor

I now use luxury decor candles (with shiny containers) to sprinkle little pops of color around the house, add some nice accents, soften the decor of more sober rooms in the house or simply to complement the existing decor in a flattering way.

And the terrific part is that, as soon as the wax runs out, there are so many different ways to use the jars. Throwing them away would be such a waste, even beyond the environmental impact; cause these luxury scented candles have the nicest tins that can easily be repurposed.

I personally use the tins and jars left after the candles have run their course as little planters. They’re perfect for my succulents and they look adorable nested together or sprinkled around the house. That way, the scent of the candle may be gone, but I can still take advantage of the pop of color of the jar and continue using it for home decor.

Now, if you find yourself in need of inspiration for luxury scented candles on Amazon that can make your home pop, thought we’d round up some nice (and not overly pricey) luxury candles. Along with a detailed description and a handy Amazon link for you to buy them.

I know what you’re gonna say: “Don’t you want to smell the candles before you buy?” And the answer to that would be Hell No! I’ve made the mistake of doing that a few times, left the scented candles isle all dizzy from an array of sweet, stingy or sticky odors. I’m a big girl, I know what I like; I will read the description, make sure the candle isn’t a danger to my health, find a jar that’s pretty as hell, then have it delivered straight to my door, thank you.
