New to the world of candles? Not for long!

I’m manifesting it: 2021 is the year of the candles. Take that, astrology.

While 2020 might have been the year we all spent more time in our homes and got into candle shopping, any good enthusiast knows that candle appreciation takes time.

It’s not enough to know a candle by its first burn. And knowing the right scent for you also takes more than just a few lightings.

The world of scented candles is a surprisingly vast one and needs intensive research. So for the newbies who want to try out starter candles with readily available reviews, where else would you go but Shopee and Lazada?

Check out these easy candle finds from your go-to shopping sites:

For the extremely new: Try out these basic scents first

If you’re someone who wants to see if candles are for you, it’s better to try out basic scents first. You’ll notice that many local chandlers sell similar scents like vanilla, lavender, coffee, peppermint, eucalyptus, and the like. Get to know if you’re into floral or citrus, sweet or musky scents first.

Also, try to buy products with an average of 3 oz or 100 ml so you don’t bite off more than you can chew.
