TL;DR: I’m a candle snob, and I don’t care who knows it. I’ve been a home and shopping editor for the last five or so years, so I’ve sniffed just about every candle brand out there: the good, the bad, and the nauseatingly potent. I’m a tough shell to crack when it comes to liking fragrances, but there’s one particular brand that I can’t get enough of. In fact, it has impressed me so much over the years that it’s now the only brand I’ll ever buy. If this picture-perfect company hasn’t popped up on your Instagram feed yet, let me introduce you to Otherland, the brand behind the luxe, dreamy candles that are basically a vacation in a jar. You could say it was love at first light!

Their newest Beach Club collection basically makes my tiny studio feel like a tropical getaway and I’ve been hooked on their other iconic scents for years. Whether you’re in the mood for garden party-inspired scents like Canary or Clean Blossom or you’re jonesing for a Spring Awakening, Otherland’s got every relaxing scent you could ever want (and then some). The first scent I burned through (slowly)? Coco Blossom — it’s a heavenly coconutty candle that feels like an instant escape and is sure to be a crowdpleaser.

While these candles are a bit of a splurge ($36 each), they’re worth every penny. But if you’re always on the hunt for an irresistible deal, now’s the time to snag them because Otherland is having their first-ever Summer Sale! Starting today, you can score up to 35 percent off spring and summer seasonal collections and the core collection through July 17. Single candles will be on sale for $28 (20 percent off), three-packs will be $78 (28 percent off), six-packs will be $141 (35 percent off), and the mini set will be $40 (20 percent off). They don’t have sales often, let alone a discount this major, so what are you waiting for?!

In addition to being the ultimate Goldilocks of candles (not too potent, but not so subtle you don’t smell them), the candles are jaw-droppingly gorgeous. They basically double as art, and they’re so pretty that you’ll find every excuse to repurpose the canisters once you’re done with them. They’re also made with a coconut and soy wax blend and a cotton wick so you can have peace of mind that you’re burning something that’s responsibly made and safe for everyone in your home.

Overwhelmed with all the luxe options? While I recommend buying them all, you can take a fun scent quiz to determine the perfect candle scent for you. Whatever you end up with, you won’t have any regrets about snagging them on major sale.
