Scented Candles Singapore: The Local Brands

Diadem Enamel Mug Candles
One of the most impressive things about Diadem is its commitment to recycling. Their enamel mug candles are a great home piece. The other product Diadem boasts is a sustainable recycled bottle candle, made from used bottles, cut and buffed for use, topped with a natural wood lid.
Diadem also has the option of candle making workshops and an easy to use beginner kit accessible to anyone. If you’re looking for a great gift or date night activity, you can present this to a loved one!

This company is all about sustainability, their scented 100% soy wax candle that is both non-toxic and biodegradable is a great choice for those who cringe and container waste. If you’re in need of a candle refill you can head to their website or stores that serve their products for a smart refill option.
Artisan’s garden also makes handmade soaps using natural ingredients like Fruits, Vegetables, Herbs & Clay. Another impressive item in their collection is the Lizard Away spray. If you’re someone like us and you don’t love getting jump scared late at night by creeping geckos this is definitely a worthwhile product to look into!

Zendle has mastered the art of making something as coarse and unpleasant looking as cement into something beautiful and repurposable. Their 4 scented candles are held in a beautiful cement mould that won’t scald your hands if you were to move your hand around while lit (not recommended but in certain situations unavoidable).
They also have laser engraving for cute messages or labelling names (a great idea for a gift) that you can embellish onto its wooden lid! Another bonus product that candle enthusiasts might perk up to is the Candle Accessories set. Which harbours a Candle Snuffer, Wick Dipper and Wick Trimmer. You can find out more about candle accessories here.
Gentle Glow Chernobyl Scented Candle
Gentle Glow is a passion project as well as an indie company. Founded and hand-poured by Priya. It’s a homely option that would contribute warmth and a sense of belonging to any home.
Something that immediately caught our eye about their store was the candle with a daring and unique name: Chernobyl Rain.
“Feel the call of distant, far-flung adventures and green forests grown anew from the fall of the dark and heavy rain.”
An intriguing, mysterious and equally alluring sentimental description.

They also use eco-friendly wood wicks that further establish their vegan-friendly preposition. Breathe Essentials also has a wide range of products such as Candle warmers, Stainless steel water flasks with a bamboo lid and Jute shopping bags.
Cancer support: Breathe Essentials was birthed when the founder realised the soothing and medicating effects of lavender essential oil. Upon this beautiful revelation their founder, Charlene, decided to open a new world of aesthetic scented candles that helped others. They also do cancer support work with cancer coaches and cancer supporters for those in need.
