Candles are always a treat. Not only do they freshen up your space with aromatherapy when you light them, but our editors' favorite candles come in vessels that double as chic decor. That's a given when you buy a beautiful candle from one of the following high-end brands. Keep scrolling to check out our next-level lineup of the best luxury candles.

Of course, leading the pack is the beloved Diptyque brand, which was founded in 1961. What exactly makes it so extravagant? "Diptyque candles are the product of luxury craftsmanship," marketing director Eduardo Valadez tells House Beautiful. "To achieve a perfect diffusion of the perfume, each candle benefits from a unique blend of high-quality waxes, with wick material and diameter selected for optimal combustion. Each candle is made with a cotton, lead-free wick. Since every scent concentrate reacts differently to heat, meticulous fine-tuning is required to find the perfect balance between the concentrate, the wax, and the wick."

That level of detail is what you should look for when making your purchase. At the same time, you should do a deep dive into the container it comes in. For instance, each Baobab candle comes in a hand-blown glass jar made by artisans—a definite keeper. We also included designer picks, from a lovely Dior floral piece to a Loewe oregano scent that's as unique as the brand's accessories. All in all, if you've been searching for a sign to treat yourself, block off some online shopping time and start adding candles to your cart.

One of Diptyque's giant candles is the ultimate statement piece. Plus, when you opt for the larger size, the earthenware pot that it comes in is also available in eye-catching colors. Shell out the investment and make it the centerpiece of your room.

Overwhelmed by the different scents? "One of Diptyque's best-selling candles is the Baies Candle—a perennial classic," says Valadez. Imagine the fresh and uplifting scent of a bouquet of roses sweetened with blackcurrant leaves. "The scent was inspired by a memory of Diptyque's founders' good friend Dido Merwin, who was the creator of potpourris designed in the pure English tradition and sold at Diptyque in its early days," he adds. Woody Figuier is another favorite, inspired by the scents of Greece. It "transports us to where the sun is at its peak and the warm wind carries its intense fragrance of the trees mingled with delicate fruity accents of a handful of figs on the cusp of ripening," he says. Luxurious, no?

Get ready to be transported to a dreamy floral garden with this Venus et Fleur porcelain candle that burns for up to 85 hours.

It's also a more affordable luxury candle.
