Love coffee and—even better—the smell of it? It's time to light a candle and create that amazing coffee aroma across your home or office.
There is nothing more calming and relaxing than the smell of coffee when you wake up, or when you open the entrance door to your local Café. Coffee aroma can be described in many ways, such as flowery, nutty, smoky, and even herby, but no matter how you say it—it smells amazing! The aroma of coffee can give you that feeling of pleasure and even affect your overall mood.
To make it easier for you to smell coffee whenever you need it, we rounded up the six best coffee-scented candles you can find on Amazon right now.
Made from food grade paraffin wax and with dual wick, this candle has the fragrance of “roasted pecans and tonka bean combined with Smoky espresso.” If you are curious about what a tonka bean is, we did some research for you.
Apparently tonka bean or Dipteryx odorata, is a legume from South America with aromas of vanilla, cherry, almond, or cinnamon. Famous high-end restaurants used to add it to their desserts, and it has even been called "the most delicious ingredient you’ve never heard of." The only problem is that it contains a chemical that could, in large enough doses, kill you…
This is why the selling of tonka beans for food purposes has been illegal in the US since 1954. Well, this candle is made in the US (Maine), so we are sure it’s all legal and ok for sale. Some reviewers said that this candle smells like coffee, but a little bit sweeter than a black cup.
This candle smells like “lightly roasted coffee beans are blended together with caramelized pralines, creamy vanilla and a dash of cinnamon.” The brand calls this scent a breakfast blend, and we totally get why! It’s made from soy wax blend and Coffee & Praline Fragrance. One happy customer described the scent as “classic appearance, long lasting and soothing yet powerful.”
This candle does not only smell like coffee, but also looks like latte in a clear mug. What’s the coolest part? Each color layer contains a different fragrance! Customers had mentioned that the smell is pretty strong (if you prefer a more dominant scent), and it lasts for about 8 hours.
We continue with more candles that actually look like coffee. This candle is made from 100% American Soybean Wax and looks just like a delicious cappuccino. It’s made in the US and can burn for more than 50 hours.
This natural-smelling coffee is made from clean-burning safe soy wax (compared to petroleum-based paraffin candles can emit toxic gases).
Cold brewed coffee has a different steeping and brewing method compared to regular brewed and instant coffee. This particular brewing method helps to further bring out the natural flavors, aromas, and sugars from the coffee bean itself. This might be the reason this candle’s scent described as “soft vanilla woods are caressed with herbaceous caffè breezes, creamy cocoa and hints of dark roast java beans.”
Light a candle, make yourself a delicious cup of instant coffee and enjoy!
