If you can’t actually date your celebrity crush IRL (don’t worry, you can still preserve all hope), perhaps the next best thing is to make your ambiance smell like them—aromatherapy does practically has magical powers, after all. After a $7 candle that allegedly smelled just like Harry Style’s signature scent (Tom Ford’s Tobacco Vanille) at Target went viral (and sold out in a flash), fans of the former One Direction star and bona fide heartthrob went wild searching for additional Harry Styles candles with his supposed scent.
Fortunately, there are now plenty of other Styles-inspired scented candles to add to your collection and, hopefully, help you to manifest his presence in the comfort of your own home. If Styles isn’t your personal Internet crush, there are plenty of other candles inspired by other celebrity dreamboats to collect, including Timothee Chalamet, who, according to Cool Girls Candles smells like peach, bergamot, sandalwood, and musk. Yum.
Frankly, there’s a candle for just about every mainstream crush-worthy celebrity you can think of—Drake, Chris Evans, and the Duke of Hastings (Simon Bassett) just to name a select few. TBH, I had no idea this was a burgeoning candle category, but I’m here for it, and I totally want to collect them all. If you don’t see your crush listed online, there are also customizable options on Etsy that let you choose the celeb scent of your choice to add to your candle.
Unfortunately, I’ve never smelled these sexy celeb BFs IRL, so I certainly cannot verify that each of them smells like their corresponding candles, but, hey, a girl can dream (read: fantasize). Plus, unlike so many fan merch items, they’re actually chic, so they won’t clash with your existing collection.
Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.
