What fragrances remind you of summer? When I think of summer scents I channel aromas of suntan lotion, salt water, fresh cut grass, jasmine, and citrus. In honor of the sunny season I’ve rounded up my favorite warm-weather candles. A mix of old classics and new favorites, these transport me to sunshine no matter the month.

Diptyque Tomas Maier Palm Beach Scented Candle

Not only do I love the black and white packaging on this candle, I adore its scent. Round fragrances of jasmine, iris, lemon and lime trees, sea salt and fresh-cut grass transport me right to Florida’s fragrant paradise.

Mer-Sea Summer Day Boxed Candle & Agate Coaster

This candle perfectly captures the essence of summer, featuring a fresh, grassy scent mixed with florals, citrus, cinnamon, ginger, clove, cedar and spruce. And, the agate coaster that’s included could not be chicer!

Nest Ocean Mist & Sea Salt Classic Candle

As if the ocean is just a few feet away, this luxe candle is a clever concoction of ocean mist fragrance, sea salt, white tea and coconut. Heaven!

Sel de Mer Classic Toile Pagoda Box Candle

This candle may look simple, but it’s precisely blended to smell like the ocean. It combines light green marine and sea moss with the fresh perfumes of cyclamen and lavender, and is finished with touches of earthy wild sage and citrus-y petitgrain.

Sunday Forever Tanlines  

Want to be transported to a tropical locale without the sunburn? Burning this candle is like taking a trip to the beach, blending notes of suntan lotion and coconuts, and ending up with the best sun-free tan ever.
