Walk into any Anthropologie store and you’ll be tempted to buy all of their candles. Our favorite (this month) is Mimira, which is a lighter scent that mixes sage with lemon. It’s also inspired by watercolor paintings, so it’s perfect for the artistic modern day mom.

The Baies candle isn’t new, in fact it’s one of Diptyque’s best sellers. But, there’s a new size (21.2oz.) that’s sure to fill your room with over 100 hours of sexy smells of rose and blackcurrant leaves. Just be sure to tell mom to keep the black ceramic vessel to store her goodies when the candle is complete.

If she loves grapefruit and cardamom, with a hint of rose and geranium this candle has her name all over it. But more than that, it’s created with an earth-friendly blend of beeswax, vegetable and soy waxes to help mom tap into her environmentally conscious spirit.

Not many pint size candles have big impact, but this Paddywax candle might be the first of its kind. The rose-scented candle literally fits into your palm (which means it’s easy to Instagram) and won’t clutter mom’s mantle that’s already filled with her faves.

We love every one of CLEAN’s candles because they are hand-poured soy blends, so you’ll get up to 60 hours with each candle. And the scent is inspired by fluffy warm towels just taken out of the dryer. What could be better than that?
