best anthropologie candles - capri blue

by Victoria Gill |

Ever walked past an Anthropologie store and thought, I need my house to smell like that! We certainly have. And now Spring is in full swing, what better excuse is there to add a little luxury to our homes than a new scent (especially if you're post Spring clean amiright). More specifically, Anthropologie candles - which are quickly becoming a fast favourite for any chic home.

The wide-ranging collection has something for everyone's tastes, from light to heavy perfume scents, and they come with a wide range of price tags. Which means we simply had to find out: which ones are worth splurging on. This is why we've done our research and rounded up the best UK Anthropologie candles ready for you to snap up, from their famous Capri Blue volcano candle to gift-worthy packaging - we got you!

TOP TIP: Anthropologie suggests if you're about to burn a brand-new candle, allow it to burn until the wax pool melts all the way to the edge. This is because the wax has 'memory,' so if it is extinguished with a partial pool, that will prevent a full, even pool from forming in the future. And yes, we're going to use the trick with every candle use from now on. Thanks science.

What are Anthropologie candles made of?

Each candel is different, according to their site. So it is always worth checking the description. However, the signature range tends to be ' all-natural, food-grade ingredients like coconut wax and essential oils.' Which makes it less likely to cause irritation or allergic reactions than artificial ingredients.

Are Anthropologie candles safe?

There has been a lot of discussion recently about the effects of candles on the environment and health. Anthropologie candles claim to often use natural ingredients in the Anthropologie's UK range. It is always best to dig a little deeper if you have any kind of health issues or allergies.

How to reuse Anthropologie candles?

Ever wonder what to do with old Anthropologie candles. Sometimes you want to reuse your beautiful jars / pots the candles come in. This may be a fun hack to do if you are stuck in isolation. Here is how you do it:

  1. Preheat oven to mid- warm setting

The plan is to copy the pouring temperature of wax. Different waxes have different pouring temperatures, so once you feel it is at a suitable texture and you are able to pour it.

  1. Once warm, place candle in the middle rack of your oven and allow it to sit for about 30 minutes
  1. After thirty minutes or so and the wax has melted , remove jar from oven
  1. Now it’s time to pour. Place your metal wick holder in the centre of your jar and go ahead!

Are Anthropologie candles vegan?

Not all their candles are vegan no. The 'Lovely Goods' range is however. With natural soy wax and a eco-cotton wick. The natural and vegan range has five option from Old Library to Sunday Morning.

Where to buy Anthropologie candles in the U.K?

If you are looking for limited edition or American edition Anthropologie candles buying them on Amazon is a safe bet for many people. However, we recommend having in mind the specific candle and scent you are looking for before diving into the Anthropologie Amazon pit. You can also get the most of UK edition candles in-store, their site allows you to see if it is available for click and collect at your local Anthropologie store and of course, you have the trusted option of buying online - although we know the best part is smelling in person first!
