Indulge your inner flapper with this Votivo candle that smells of aged oak barrels and fermented fruit, with overtones of rum and caramelized sugar. Because the faintly sweet scent is blissfully saturated, it lends fragrance to even a large space, and it burns for more than 50 hours.

If you’re dreaming of a beach holiday, this is the perfect candle for you. The sea-reminiscent aqua jar houses scents of salt and surf, which should transport you to somewhere warmer than the Atlanta winter. Plus, you can feel good about the fact that it’s 100 percent made in the USA. 77 West Paces Ferry Road N.W. Atlanta 30305 404.324.4100 www.wholefoodsmarket.com

5. Pinot Noir, Rewined
Part of the California-based designer’s “Botanical” collection, this nature-inspired scent features notes of neroli, vanilla, musk and jasmine. The candle is presented in a hand-blown glass jar, with a sustainably harvested wood wick that crackles faintly as it burns, so it will appeal to outdoorsy men as much as refined women.
Ready for spring to make its debut? This British-made candle might be the right scent to get you in the spirit, with rich, floral peonies up front and red apple and rose in the background. Plus, you’ll enjoy the warmer weather scents, without the requisite Atlanta pollen.

If “up-cycling” appeals, you’ll love that a Rewined candle is made in a recycled wine bottle. Any wine lover will fall in love with this Charleston-poured candle, recognizing some of the aromas present in complex pinot noirs: leather, violet and fig with an earthy finish. 26 East Andrews Drive Atlanta 30305 404.365.9858 www.bee-atlanta.com
