Whether you’re obsessed with candles or you’re looking for new ways to liven up your home, our guide to summer candles (and candle accessories!) is here to help.
Put away those Pumpkin Spice and Vanilla Bean candles. They’ll be waiting for you when October rolls around.

Can’t make it to Jamaica? Light the Jamaican Vacation Square Tin Candle and relax in the comfort of your air-conditioned living room. Notes of mandarin, lemon, sugar, and sandalwood make this an ideal summery scent. Okay, it’s not the same thing as a trip to Jamaica—but it’s still nice.
You could also try the 12-pack of the Lime & Sea Salt Tea Light Box Set. Place the tea lights around your bathroom, your patio, or your kitchen. Sip a classic margarita. Relax. You’re in Margaritaville. (Kind of.)

If the summer breezes keep extinguishing your favorite scents, try some candle warmers.
