There’s nothing like entering a room that smells florally fresh or cottony clean. The right scent can easily calm you down and put you at ease, not to mention give you that cozy feeling of being safely ensconced at home. And while diffusers go a long way to achieve that effect, scented candles add a more intimate vibe and softens the mood of your room.

If you haven’t gotten on the scented candle bandwagon yet, it’s never too late to start! We’ve listed down eight local online shops that sell a wide range of fragrances to help elevate your space. Love local!

1. Saan Saan

Saan Saan is the maker you go to when you want a hint of nostalgia. Their main line consists of candles in simple amber jars, with that like Old Manila, and Mindoro Coast, and Baker Street of Poblacion that get you walking back memory lane. If you want to start out light, though, try Linen Room.

2. Happy Island

Happy Island currently has two candle collections: the Flora Collection which has more traditional scents like Jasmin, Sage Flower, and Lemon Lavender, and the Play Collection that goes for the sweeter notes of Sweet Candy, Salted Caramel, and Hazelnut Cappuccino. You can order from their website, or add-to-cart via BeautyMNL and Lazada.


3. Soyphisticated Collection

Soyphisticated Collection has recently released a line of scented soy candles decorated with quartz crystals in hand-painted cement pots—a pretty addition to any shelf or vignette. You can even have them personalized!


4. Oonah Handcrafted

Oonah Handcrafted produces dye-free, soy wax candles that are handcrafted from start to finish. What we love about it is the simple packaging of glass and wooden lids made from scrap pallets and palochina. Start off with cozy scents like Cuddler and Blanket to keep the calm, positive vibes in.


5. Psyche Candles

Psyche Candles has a collection of clean, cozy fragrances, but if you want your home to smell like a hotel room, go for fan-favorite Sunday Morning with hints of coconut, warm vanilla, and fig that will remind you of quiet summer vacations in a suite bed.

6. Talitha


Talitha is the brainchild of celebrity Pauleen Luna, who named the brand after her daughter. Its collection consists of classic scents such as Coconut, Lavender, and Coffee.

7. Finn

Finn’s candles are made from beeswax and poured into containers of tin, glass, ceramic, and marble. Try their Jitterbug Perfume (sampaguita, bergamot, and calamansi) or Lime Basil embedded with flowers, herbs, and crystals for an elegant addition to your home.  


8. Bare Essentials Manila

Bare Essentials Manila started out with candles, and is now offering a wide range of scents and even beauty products. Everything is 100% handmade and natural, and they’re pretty economical, too! Go for scents like Grass and Warm Vanilla, or if you’re a bit more adventurous, they also offer Tobacco.
