Finding a candle that both smells good and looks good is like finding a needle in a haystack—especially if you don’t want to spend an insane amount of money. Luckily, H&M Home’s Spring collection is here to solve all of our home fragrance–buying woes. The brand’s seasonal launch is full of budget-friendly yet chic options that… wait for it…also smell good. 

Candlelight isn’t all H&M Home is offering this time around. The drop is complete with blown-glass vases, tufted pillow covers, and geometric, glazed ceramics. Below, however, you’ll find our top five picks from the collection for instant ambience—including the $5 purple pillar candle we’ve already added to our cart. 

The Taper Holders

Tall Glass Candlestick, H&M Home


Give basic white taper candles a lift with a few of these pastel glass holders. The bulbous shapes add just the right amount of whimsy. 

The Sculptural Pillars

Pillar Candle

Stepped Pillar Candle

Hu0026M Home

Available in multiple shapes and trendy colors (hello, sage green and lilac), these pillars are the artsy addition your shelves are missing—especially if you don’t light them. If you do, they have a 40-hour burn time. 

The Ceramic Swoop

Ceramic Candle Holder, H&M Home


Two candleholders for the price of one, and the rosy stoneware arch is the perfect size for a dinner table centerpiece. 

The Scented One

Large Scented Candle, H&M Home


Smelling of sun-dried linen—aka cotton, apple blossom, and white musk—this XL candle is the ideal scent (not too warm, not too fresh) for that winter-to-warmth transition.
