My mom started growing garden roses over 25 years ago. She had about 100 David Austin roses and a variety of English roses that she frequently donated to family, friends and doctors offices. As the years went on and she started growing more roses we decided to start marketing to florists on Instagram. Our roses have been featured in countless weddings across California thanks to the talented florists who use them in bridal bouquets and centerpieces. One of the most popular questions we’re often asked is how fragrant they are?
Our roses are very fragrant, especially the rose Yves Piaget. This large pink rose is not only beautiful, but smells heavenly! I truly believe that spending time in the garden “smelling the roses” is good for the soul. There are times when I’m stressed and all it takes is snipping a few roses from the garden to brighten my day and my spirits. I try to decorate my home with as many roses as possible. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen that I love decorating my kitchen sink, KitchenAid stand mixer, mirrored nightstand, desk and more with roses!
Garden roses and flowers in general have the power to brighten anyones day! We still donate flowers to doctors offices for the patients to enjoy as we know it’ll put a smile on their faces. Unfortunately, garden roses only bloom a few months out of the year. Due to the rain, we didn’t have roses until mid-April. Sadly, we had a few very late rainstorms in May and extreme heat in June, which has affected them greatly. We haven’t had the best luck with roses this spring/summer. While we know 2019 is an off year and better years are to come, it can be tough when you want to smell fresh roses! Thankfully there are many great floral inspired candles to choose from.
As someone who suffers with migraines that can be triggered by different scents, I typically don’t buy candles as I never know if they’ll make me sick. Earlier this year I bought a few pine candles that I loved, so I’ve slowly but surely been searching for new candles for spring and summer. In May I stumbled on this absolutely gorgeous rose inspired candle. I decided to buy it for my mom’s birthday and Mother’s Day. This was around the time of the Sephora Sale, so I decided to “splurge” on this kit as well which contains three rose scented candles by the same company (Voluspa) as well.
My Favorite Garden Rose Candles
I can honestly tell you that these Voluspa garden rose inspired candles are not only gorgeous, but they smell amazing. They smell just like the roses we grow! I’ve burned this large candle quite a bit and absolutely adore it. These candles smell amazing even when they haven’t been lit. I like to place them by the side door so I can smell them as I walk into the kitchen.
Have you had a chance to check out Voluspa’s candles? I highly recommend them! They come in a variety of styles. The containers are absolutely beautiful! Once I burn this large candle I can see using it as a vase or as a container for pens on my desk. I love candles that serve dual purposes.
The small candle containers are beautiful too. Once I burn them, I can see using the smaller ones to hold small violets in the winter or fill them with tiny accessories like paperclips on my desk.

This lovely candle is the same size (6.5) as the ones I featured above. If you love Rose Otto and Rose Champs, I highly recommend buying the duo at such a phenomenal price. Each candle retails for $24.50. Unfortunately, Bergamot Rose, Rose Colored Glasses, Rose Petal Ice Cream and Milk Rose aren’t in the duo that’s on deep discount during the famed 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. They are absolutely amazing though! PS: Bergamot Rose is so popular, there is only one left!
This gorgeous 8.5 ounce candle not only smells fabulous, but the container it was poured in is beautiful! Once you’re done burning your candle, you can empty it out and place it on your vanity and use it as a makeup brush holder! I don’t know about you, but I have an endless supply of makeup brushes with nowhere to put them. I can’t wait to start burning my candles more, so I can store my brushes in a gorgeous container.
This 26.5 ounce candle (80 hour burn time) is the candle that started the obsession a few months ago. I bought it for my mom for her birthday/Mother’s Day, and she started burning it right away. The smell is not only natural, but long lasting. The whole house smelled like gorgeous garden roses. It’s a floral lover’s dream! It doesn’t hurt that the container is so pretty either. This particular candle comes in quite a few different colors and rose scents.
If you love macarons as much as I do or you have a friend who does, you’re in luck! This pretty rose champs scented candle comes in a fun tin container which is adorned with macarons. I can’t get enough of it! It’ll make a great gift.
Fabulous Candles For Your Tablescape
If there’s one thing I love to do, it’s definitely decorating my tablescape throughout the year with gorgeous flowers, decor and accessories. These macaron candles are affordable at $13.00 each, and will have your table looking festive! They’re great throughout the year. The white ones can be used with your summer decor in the great outdoors, while the pink can be used for Valentine’s Day, Easter and Christmas too! The options are endless, as are the garden rose scents!
The macaron size birthday candle would also make a great gift for a friend, neighbor or co-worker’s birthday! As for me, I’m hooked on the “Rose Champs.”
Luxurious Garden Rose Candles For Self Care Sunday!
I try to plan a little “Self Care Sunday” every day throughout the week! Every day I like to work in the garden a bit to get my mind off of everything. I also like to indulge in a home pedicure or draw myself a bath. This Prosecco rose candle would be absolutely perfect for afternoons or evenings when I need a little time to myself after the hustle and bustle of the day. This particular one is 11 ounces and has a 45 hour burn time.
This pretty candle is not only available in the legendary “Rose Champs“, but in a few other floral scents such as violets and honey! I may have to branch out and try it.
Obsessed with this luxurious rose Prosecco scent and this stunning blush pink and gold container it’s set in:
How fun is this pink citron candle with a hint of rose?
PS: You can find this pink citron scent in this great “petite decorative tin” for only $10! I love that the burn time is 25 hours.

It was an absolute bargain when I bought it during the Sephora Sale. I will definitely be ordering this kit again for friends and family (and of course myself)!
