This holiday season, you can buy burnable wax to suit every mood: candles for bedtime stories (Cire Trudon), candles for family holiday portraits (NEST's Grand Holiday candle), and even candles scented like your favorite literary heroines (a Brontë sister—inspired set from Jardin D'Ecrivains). Rest assured, these scents went through rigorous testing — at least fifteen different office fire codes were probably violated. Click through the Cut's slideshow to see the best candles to burn (and gift) this season.
