chic candles Tomorrow’s the first night of Hanukkah. And what better gift to bring your generous latka-serving holiday-party hosts than a festive yet chic candle that burns bright with your friendship. We’ve picked eight of our non-toxic favorites…


Red Flower Moroccan Rose Petal Topped Candle

Red Flower’s visionary founder Yael Alkalay is the godmother of all gorgeous candles. Each scent comes beautifully topped with petals.


Tatine Forest Floor Candle

This super-cool Chicago candlemaker pours super intriguing (and unisexy) scents into recycled glass by hand.


SoulCycle by Jonathan Adler Grapefruit Aroma Candle

Is your host a spinning junkie? Bring her this candle and see if she doesn’t start to just break a sweat at the scent.
$42, available at SoulCycle locations


Lite+Cycle Lavender Home Compostable Candle

It’s made, er, grown from the eco-coolest materials: mushrooms. And the three scents are outrageously high-quality clean.


Linnea’s Lights Natural Soy Winter Candle

We love the double wick, the 60-hour burn time, and the scent of “winter,” a blend of spruce, mint, citrus, and vanilla.


Skinny Skinny Sweet Basil and Lemon Candle

The pick-me-up scent of this soy-wax candle is also evocative of a far-flung spa.


Love Nature NYC Candle 

Brooklyn-based Love Nature is holding our feet to the fire over which holiday-appropriate scent we like best—Spice? Nutmeg & Cedarwood?  Vanilla Fig? We’ll let you decide.


SpaRitual Ginger Soy Candle

This spicy ginger scented spa-lifestyle candle, made by the popular nail and beauty line, has serious wow-factor.
