There’s no home fragrance more classic than vanilla. Reminiscent of sugar cookies in the oven, cozy flavored coffees, and sweet perfumes, the gourmand scent adds warmth to any space. It’s also extremely versatile. Depending on the notes it’s paired with, vanilla can become either spicy or sweet—meaning a vanilla candle can create a range of scent stories for every room, season, or occasion.
