I Sniffed Dozens of Candles, and These Are the 8 Your Home Needs This Spring
I’ve made a tradition of welcoming springtime into my kitchen with three simple things: a small, fresh bouquet of flowers; brewing a new flavor of iced tea; and lighting one of my favorite spring candles.

Oftentimes, springy candles can be overwhelming and overly artificial-smelling — but as a self-pronounced candle connoisseur, I set out to find the lightest, freshest scents so I could keep the candles lit all through the light-filled morning.
