If anything is going to have certifiable French girl appeal, it's going to be a croissant candle. We thought the best yankee candles (opens in new tab) had some pretty far out scents (Cream Colored Ponies anyone?) but Overose Croissant Scented Candle takes that warm, comforting patisserie scent and floods your home with it.
To be clear, this is not the type of gimmicky scent that comes with a cute name but smells of chemical air freshener. Overose is seriously chic with a sleek lilac aesthetic, which is why we've quickly added it to our crib sheet of best scented candles. (opens in new tab)

The scent itself is strangely addictive - and definitely more buttery than sweet (precisely how we like our croissants, too). On the one hand it grounds you; on the other it whisks you away to the backstreets of Paris, where you can indulge in the fantasy of breakfast alfresco Emily style.
So if you need to inject a little French flair into your evening rituals, or you want all the benefits of that gold puff pastry minus the calories, then this cruelty-free, vegan candle could be just the thing. And priced at just $58 [£46] it will keep your bank manager sweet, too.
The candle went back on sale today but sold out in just 15 minutes, such is its appeal. Mon dieu.
More stock will be available soon, so bookmark overose.com for updates.
