Three Wood Wick Wine Candle Boats

If you’ve ever taken a whiff of something that seemingly transports you back in time, you already know the powerful connection between scent and memory. 

For me, when I light a wine candle, I’m flooded with memories of incredible glasses and the amazing company I shared while uncorking some of my favorite bottles. In this blog post, I’ve included some amazing wine candles that always remind me of happy memories – but these delicious scents are sure to help you to create some, too! 

Uncorked Wine Candles

What’s more romantic than sharing a bottle of wine over candlelight? You and your significant other will feel like you’re getting intoxicated on these delicious scents, but you’ll never have to worry about coming down with an unfortunate hangover the following morning. 

These soy-wax candles are poured into discarded wine bottles that would’ve been destined for the landfill if it weren’t for designer Craig Davies. Each bottle is cut down by hand into unique vases, and you’ll have your pick when it comes to what kind of wine you want to be sniffing. Options include Chardonnay, Champagne, Cabernet, Rosé, Pinot Grigio, and Zinfandel.

Wine Boat Candles

Let’s be honest, there’s a lot of people out there that have never even heard of a wine candle. It’s already a pretty niche market, but these wine boat candles are one of the most original designs I’ve ever come across.

These candles can be handcrafted to smell just like your favorite glass of wine OR your favorite cocktail! You can opt for wine scents like Sauvingon Blanc and Prosecco, or go for a classic cocktail like Moscow Mule and a Lavender Gin Martini. There’s a lot of options to choose from, so if you’re a little indecisive like me, why not splurge on multiple?

    I especially like scents, I always want to have the most relaxing feeling in my home. In my house, every room has scented candles. Not only in the room, but on important occasions, we also decorate and present them, create fragrances, and help to decorate and beautify them. I particularly like the fragrance “Flower Fragrance”, which is very popular and seems to be liked by many people. . Because it also has many aromas, we can choose between rose, lavender, lilac, and geranium. I used to feel all these smells. It makes me nostalgic every time I leave my room.
