Luxury Candles Are a Holiday Favorite: Do You Like To Use Candles?

According to the Wall Street Journal, luxury candles—always a holiday favorite—are especially popular this year. Many consumers turn to high-end candles for holiday gifts while others splurge on them as a special personal treat. These luxury candles feature a variety of complicated fragrances and can range in price anywhere from $25 to $500.

Candle purchases always increase in the winter, due to the colder weather and the holiday season, but the last few years have also seen overall annual sales rise significantly. Anthony Carro of Candle Delirium in West Hollywood, CA told the Wall Street Journal that he has seen sales increase 10% to 15% a year for the past five years. Carro believes that this trend stems in part from the fact that the struggling economy has kept more people at home over the last five years, giving them more opportunities to burn candles.

If you are a fan of burning candles, be sure to be safe. More than 15,000 candle fires are reported each year. Be sure to never burn a candle out of sight, as a night light, or all the way down to the bottom.

    I've always enjoyed candles, when I have a place of my own I'll light them regularly. They provide a nice serene and romantic atmosphere. romantic candlelight romantic candlelight romantic candlelight

    But a $500 candle? You can't attribute that sale to a "bad economy." Yikes!

    The only time I used "luxury" candles is for prayers for my husband, power outages, and when I feel like having cinnamon.

    Not particularly. Candles and oil lamps are for when the power goes out, and occasionally for roasting marshmallows inside.
