No seasonal transition is complete without a changing of the guard, and by that, I mean the first lighting of a new candle scent that embodies spring. As much as we love a warm vanilla or spicy clove in the colder months, these cozy scents will have to wait until next winter to have their moment again. Spring is all about uplifting scents that make your home feel lighter and fresher. For some, that might mean a candle that makes the entire room smell like a freshly picked bouquet. Others are looking for a zesty scent that makes it feel like you just deep-cleaned your whole space.

No matter your preferred spring scent, it can be hard to sort through the abundance of candles available online to get the crème de la crème, so we’ve rounded up our editors’ top recommendations. Read on for the spring candles we’re loving (and lighting) this season.

The Best Spring Candles Our Editors Burn All Season

Tennis League Candle

I love Homesick’s candles year-round, but there is something about lighting one of their spring candles after I’ve done a deep clean that feels especially fresh. This candle is inspired by a sunny day on the tennis courts with notes of clean cotton, honeydew, orange, clay, and more. Lighting it feels just as chic as putting on my favorite tennis skirt on the first warm day of spring.

Sparkling Cuvée Candle

I don’t know how to explain it, but this candle really does smell “sparkling.” With citrus and fruity notes, this fresh and energetic scent brightens up any room. It’s the perfect afternoon pick-me-up when I want to emulate a perfect spring day indoors.

Boy Smells
Cedar Stack Scented Candle

With spring approaching, I’m eager to go on afternoon walks—however, I live in Chicago and will have to settle for bringing the outdoors in for at least the next few weeks. My go-to when it’s too cold to venture outside is the Boy Smells Cedar Stack candle. This classic wood and cedar chips fragrance makes the perfect addition to make your home feel warmer and reminiscent of a walk through the park.

Fresh Cut Lilacs Candle

The house I grew up in had a lilac bush planted just outside the kitchen window, so on warm spring days, the breeze coming in from the open window would make the whole space smell like lilacs. The scent of this candle takes me straight back to those childhood memories and instantly makes it feel like spring—even if it’s still 40 degrees outside.

Mojito Mo Problems Candle

As a girl born on an island, I crave sunlight daily. I get giddy when the first rays of spring finally come through, and this Mojito Mo Problems candle feels like patio drinks on a 75-degree day. This scent is my #1 pick-me-up when spring storms cloud the sky.

Wildflowers Candle

When I think of spring, I immediately think of the wildflowers that take over every inch of grass in my hometown during March. This candle perfectly captures the slightly untamed yet stunning nature of these flowers with a balance of fresh florals and grassy herb notes. It immediately transports me to driving down the road with the windows down, the sun shining, and the soft scent of wildflowers wafting through my car.

Freshly Squeezed Candle

If you love the smell of freshly squeezed citrus, this is the candle for you. I absolutely love lighting this candle on a sunny spring morning right after getting out of bed—it’s basically like a scent substitution for drinking a glass of orange juice. It’s sweet and tangy and will make your whole house feel more awake.
