A couple of weeks ago, I found myself aimlessly perusing the aisles of my local Sephora. As I made my way to the fragrance section, I stumbled across something I convinced myself I must have wished into existence: a Replica By the Fireplace candle. Now, I’ve been a steadfast fan of Replica’s perfumes for years (in the summer, I don’t go anywhere without a travel-sized bottle of Beach Walk in my purse), but somehow I’d missed the launch of a candle in my absolute favorite scent. When I picked it up, I was immediately floored by how well the brand had replicated (no pun intended) By the Fireplace in candle form; I couldn’t toss it into my cart fast enough! Later, as I sat in my apartment burning the smoky, robust scent I had wished for in candle form for years, I wondered, do other beauty brands make candles, too? Well, I did some digging and it turns out, yes! Below, you’ll find 10 candles from your favorite beauty brands that’ll spread the scents you love throughout your home.

Whether at your favorite salon or in your own shower, count yourself lucky if you've indulged in the luxury that is Aveda. The cult haircare brand's products are notorious for their luxurious aromas, and now you can experience that deliciousness throughout your space. This candle is inspired by Aveda's signature shampure™ line and features a blend of 25 pure flower and plant essences (including certified organic lavender, petitgrain, and ylang ylang) for the ultimate dose of spa-level calm.

Replica's By the Fireplace candle is the one that started me on this journey, so of course it's going to make the cut. It features notes of pink pepper, clove, chestnut, guaiac wood oil, vanilla, balsam, and cashmere for an effect that perfectly captures the feeling of sitting fireside on a cold winter night.

If you're a perfume connoisseur, you've likely heard of Le Labo and its iconic fragrances. Inspired by one of the brand's most popular scents, the Santal 26 candle is the perfect pick for those who love something deep and musky. It's all thanks to the notes of amber, cocoa, vanilla, cedar, spices, musk, and sandalwood.

Pattern Beauty

Back in 2019, actress Tracee Ellis Ross broke onto the beauty scene with the launch of her haircare line, Pattern. And if you've ever tried her products (I adore the leave-in-conditioner), you know that each one features a beautiful scent. Inspired by the line, the Pattern candle features notes of rose, patchouli, and neroli for an aroma that will definitely up your self-care experience.

I'm someone with quite a few beauty staples, and one I haven't lived without for years now is dpHue's Color Fresh Therapy Oil. While I love what it does for my hair, I also can't get enough of the sweet smell — and now you can dress your home in the same scent! With fresh, fruity, and floral notes balanced by warm vanilla accents, this candle is perfect for anyone who likes their home to smell clean and crisp, like every day is laundry day.

If there's one perfume I constantly get compliments on, it's Glossier's You — so when I heard they were creating a limited-edition kit that comes with both a bottle of the beloved fragrance and a bespoke candle, I practically ran to the website. The scent is soft, warm, and familiar, thanks to notes of pink pepper, ambrette seed, iris, and ambrox. It's the perfect way to add a little love and warmth to a room.

While Sisely Paris is best known for luxe skincare essentials, its candles are just as impressive. Take the Champagne Candle, for instance. Housed in a gorgeous forest green votive, the notes of bergamot, lemon, basil, tomato, jasmine, patchouli, oakmoss, and vetiver make it one of the most complex candles on this list. If you're looking for something that's a little bit French countryside and a little bit spa vacay, this is the one for you.

R + Co

Ever wish you could bottle up that scent in the air right as dusk hits on a crisp night? Well, R+Co did it, so you don't have to. The beloved haircare brand's Stars Align candle features notes of palo santo, white cedarwood, tobacco, pine needles, and waterlily for a scent that screams sunset in the desert.

Acqua di Parma is an iconic perfume that has been around for decades, with fans the likes of Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant. And now, it's a candle, too! With a rich blend of Sicilian fruits, lavender, damask rose, vetiver, sandalwood, and patchouli, this scent is the perfect blend of citrus, earthy, and woody notes.

10 / 10

Fashion designer Tom Ford's eponymous beauty line has been home to stand-out products for years now (I'm still mourning the loss of my favorite discontinued eyeliner), but the place the brand shines the brightest is in its perfumes. When the brand launched its beloved Lost Cherry perfume in 2018, it was an instant hit, so it only makes sense that they'd turn the scent into a candle, too. With notes of exotic black cherry, almond, Turkish rose, and Jasmine sambac, the scent conjures feelings of enjoying a spiked Shirley Temple in a smoky bar.
