Elevate Your Work From Home Space with One of These Candles from Local Retailers

By Julia Marnin and Natalie Crane | April 13, 2020 | Home & Real Estate

Working from home can be a difficult adjustment, but adding a candle with a calming scent to your work space can help you stay relaxed and focused.


Kin Boutique

Owner Joey Clark stocks her closet-like boutique with dreamy pieces from brands like L’Atelier and Acler. But lining the shelves on the floral-print walls are also a variety of fun accessories, including South Korean fragrance brand Soohyang. Each candle is composed of biodegradable vegetable wax, and burns without leaving behind ash or smoke.

Joan Shepp

Shop online for the Imperfect River candle by Japanese fragrance brand Tobali. Once lit, floral notes of roses and jasmine—along with hints of citrus, amber and moss—fill your space.


Philly’s famous floral boutique goes beyond arrangements and bouquets with hand poured Voluspa candles. The aesthetically pleasing jars will keep your work space looking fresh, while scents like Rose Otto keep it smelling good.


If you are looking for a treasure trove of fragrant floral candles, look no further than Terrain. Sydney Hale, Rosy Rings and Linnea’s Lights are among popular brands. Once you pick out your new favorite, look to the variety of whimsical jars to put them in.

Boyds Philadelphia

Discover two series of fragrances that exude botanical, floral aromas by Manready Mercantile at Boyds Philadelphia. The Bold Series includes three unique soy candles that capture the essence of an outdoor garden, including the Green Tea + Neroli candle, which releases the essence of jasmine, hyacinth and orchid flowers.
