Benefiscent Customers Said...

You can smell these candles THROUGH the jar. It's incredible. I'm a candle fanatic and absolutely blown away by the quality!


One of the best candles I've bought! This candle smells AMAZING and was delivered in 2 days. I can’t get enough of it. 10/10 would highly recommend. I love it! [Côte d'Azur Candle]


Light, uplifting scent! I have to admit that I usually do not gravitate towards floral scented candles, but this one is amazing!! It smells just like roses would in the garden. It is not heavy or overpowering; it is just right!! Also, the candle and lid itself are beautiful! [A Dozen Roses Candle]


This candle was amazing! I absolutely love lavender so this candle made me very happy. Even after I blew the candle out at bedtime, the smell wafted through the room afterwards for a solid hour. In the morning when I woke up, I still was able to smell the candle, even though it wasn't burning! So pleased with this candle and can't wait to order another one! Also, the small size [petite lavender candle] is just adorable and makes my heart smile every time I look at it!


Love love love my new Clementine & Pine candle! A warm and comforting scent. 


ONE OF MY NEW FAVORITE CANDLES! This candle helps make my room smell fantastic and feel cozy. The smell is subtle at first but gets stronger once it stays lit. This was exactly what I was looking for!


I got a sample size of Amalfi Coast with my order and am definitely ordering a full size one. It smells exactly like a day at the beach in the best way possible. Bright and complex but not overbearing. Amazing.


Light fresh scent, reminiscent of a walk on the beach. Smell of oranges and mango is soft yet noticeable, without overpowering. Perfect for a summer day. Comes in eco-friendly gift box. Beautiful blue glass container with wooded lid. [Bali Candle]


Love this scent! I light this candle almost every night. If i could give this candle more than 5 stars i would. [Madagascar Vanilla Candle]Love this scent! I light this candle almost every night. If i could give this candle more than 5 stars i would. [Madagascar Vanilla Candle]

Eco Lighters

Gone are the days of trashing (non-recyclable) plastic butane lighters every 100 uses. This rechargeable lighter is eco-conscious and wallet-conscious, because this is the last lighter you will EVER need!

Wick Trimmers

To get the cleanest, longest, and safest burn from any candle, you should always keep your wicks trimmed to a 1/4 of an inch. Wick trimmers have an ergonomic shape for candles that a scissor cannot provide.

Wick Dippers

This tool allows you to push a candle wick over into the melted wax which suffocates the flame without smoke! This method also coats and seals the wick with a new layer of wax to get a better burn out of your candles.
