What the best source for scented candles?

I've grown addicted to this scent in my home. I have one burning upstairs and one burning downstairs, pretty much every day for the last three weeks.  I get these on Amazon, but they're still rather pricey.

Does anyone have a source for reasonably priced, good quality candles?

Thank you.

@house_cat -

My favorite of all time is Woodwicks Redwood, that fills the whole house with such a soothing woody firepit aroma.

I couldn't find it last time I looked in stores, (not that they are open anymore), but I think it is more a winter scent.

Though others I have tried from Woodwick do not have this intense aroma.

If anyone wants to give me something for my birthday, you can

get me a years supply!😃

not reasonabley priced, but i do really love getting ROOT candles (a plus, they are made in america). i splurged a few days ago because my local THE FRESH MARKET carries them. the scents are wonderful. they currently have 25% off and free shipping on their websiet.

 

for more affordable candles i purchase YANKEE CANDLE when coupons are available (like buy 3 , get 3 free)

BBB = $15-$19 if using their 20% coupon

Yankee Candle store = 5 candles for $10 each w/coupon

BJ's = $12 every day

I am not a big candle burner so I don't invest a lot in candles but I do enjoy the seasonal ones that Trader Joe's puts out.  They are smallish - they come in a lidded tin.  Of course, I haven't been to TJ in the current situation but maybe they will be available down the road.

I used to make my own candles. I don't burn them anymore.

That looks like a nice candle. Love the scent name & color.

I bought Beekman's Odor Spray. It has a very light scent. I really like it.

Enjoy your candles!

@house_cat One evening when I went into the basement  man cave, there was the most wonderful scent.  As it turned out, DH had some melts from his friend who's wife sold the Scentsy brand through the home parties.  

I went to one home party years ago for amway, I believe, and said "no more"!  So I hadn't experienced this brand.

Anyway, she sent me more and I was in love!  The scent and throw was absolutely wonderful!

 

They have a site now, but we got the last of the scent I loved so, Hemingway.

 

You also might want to think of oils.  Then you don't have to go blow a flame out.

Soft Surroundings has some absolutely wonderful ones.  I love their display!  Everything is yummy!!!  Then you don't have to go blow a flame out.
