I love DW Home candles. Before I set foot in the TK Maxx candles departments in London stores for the first time, I had no idea what DW candles UK, Ninety Six, and DW Naturals were. Very soon, I got obsessed with the brand.
It’s not that I am a candle addict, but yes. I am. A richly scented candle will always have a great effect on my mood. By now, you might know that I am a freelance writer and blogger. As such, when I find some amazing large wood wick candles on sale, I am all crazed and happy.
I’ve decided to talk about the DW Home candle brand today because their products really deserve all the coverage and reviews they can get. Large candles are one of my go-to products always, and some of the best DW Home candles have actually accompanied me as I was writing some of the most important articles and blog posts ever.
I’ve written a detailed blog post on my other website, The London Rack, where I mentioned DW Home candles UK as one of the best TK Maxx candles brands. I also mentioned the Sand and Fog candles, but this specific candle brand will have its own review soon here, on The Rouge Velvet.
As such, if you don’t want to miss out on any posts about the best candles to buy and enjoy, do sign up for The Rouge Velvet newsletter. I promise, no weird spammy things in your inbox – only the best of candles, minimalism, and beauty.
DW Home Candles Review
DW Home is a US-based candle brand established in 1996. Its mission? To offer stylish home decor products, contemporary candles, and unmatchable quality that would satisfy both retailers and consumers.
The DW candles brand has several candle collections that are carried by many online and pillar-and-mortar stores today. Flexibility is a core value of the brand: the “capability to quickly bring concepts to market in today’s fast-paced world” lies as the base of the brand.
That’s why you can find a DW candle to fit every mood and season. Christmas candle collections, autumn scented candles, and amazing premium, luxury candles are all available in the DW Home brand. I’m yet to see DW Home candles reviews that are not satisfied with their amazing scents and fragrances.
Among the DW Home candle collections, you can find:
- DW Home Richly Scented Candles, among which the Signature, Classics, Tropics, Cup of Joe collections
- The Premium Collection Ninety Six Candles
- DW Naturals candles
- DW Ur•Bane candles collection
Where to buy DW Home candles?
Buying a new DW candle online is one of the things that makes me most happy. Getting a richly scented candle to write to is one of the most exciting things to buy in my opinion.

DW Home Ninety Six Candles UK
DW Home | Ninety Six Premium Collection 96 Heirloom Pumpkin
The Ninety Six Premium Collection offers some of the best candles on sale I’ve smelled so far. The fragrance profile, according to the DW Home candles website is:
Pumpkin with hints of ripe melon and crisp pear warmed by aromatic cinnamon, toasted clove and vanilla.
The Ninety Six candles are definitely some of the strongest and best-crafted candles from DW Home. The metal knob on the front and the wooden lid give a somewhat rustic feel to the collection and to be fair, even if Heirloom Pumpkin is my favorite, there are so many more DW candles in this range that deserve to be better known.
This 96 candle range is available at TK Maxx and Homesense UK as well, if you don’t feel like purchasing it online.
DW Naturals Candles | DW Home
DW Naturals Plum & Bordeaux Fig
DW Naturals is the DW Home candles range that blends a coconut wax blend with essential oils. The burning time is a bit higher than what I’ve experienced, and the candles from this range offer a stronger scent.
DW Naturals Plum & Bordeaux Fig Fragrance Profile:
Ripened plum and rich fig fruit complemented by mulled blackberry, sugared acai, fig leaf and hints of warm, ambered woods.
The best DW Homes Candles
The DW Home candles are split between countless collections. Among them, you can find the Signature, the Cup of Joe (coffee-scented!), the Fall, the Farmhouse, the Metropolitan, the Hikaru candle ranges, and many others.
Some DW Home candles smell like nature, some are pumpkin scents, some are fresh like the ocean. It’s really hard to choose the best DW Home candles – even if you read countless candles reviews, the number of great scents will prevent you from choosing the best richly scented candle among all their collections.
I’ve chosen a few of my favorite DW candles to show you the amazing range of candles the brand has. This is only a preview for you, as I’m sure you’ll also have your favorites when you try the DW Home candles for the first time.
DW Home Warm Tobacco Pipe Candle
DW Home Warm Tobacco Pipe Candle Fragrance Profile
Warm Tobacco and brushed suede meld with aromatic greens, soft weathered woods, earthy patchouli and smoky leather.
Warm Tobacco Pipe is a candle I love from DW Home. I always think their strong, manly scents are really well-refined. If you’re not sure whether you like large candles with strong scents, Warm Tobacco Pipe is available in a huge range of formats that go from the freshener to the wax melts, and the double wick candle.
DW Home Candle Sandalwood Myrrh
DW Home Candle Sandalwood Myrrh Fragrance Profile
Warm sandalwood blended with aromatic flowering myrrh with hints of musk infused oak.
Sandalwood candles are life, and the Sandalwood Myrrh is one of those excellent scents that diffuse both strength and delicate notes. If you want to be pumped up in the morning, that’s definitely a DW candle to pick up.
DW Candle Home UK Vanilla Bean
DW Candle Home UK Vanilla Bean Fragrance Profile
Fragrant vanilla beans blended with a hint of creamy vodka spiked buttercream frosting, sweet spun sugar and a dash of aromatic spice.
You can never make me change my mind about vanilla-scented candles. They’re some of the strongest yet softest fragrances around, and the DW Home take on vanilla is something very different from any vanilla candle I have ever smelled. The spice and vodka really twist it and elevate the overall scent.
DW Home Candle UK Calming Waves
DW Home Candle UK Calming Waves Fragrance Profile
The fresh smell of the sea splashes over dazzling citrus, effervescent mandarin and sugared clementine with warm undertones of fresh-cut white cedar and musk
Calming Waves is a very soft scent created by DW Home to mimic the sea and the freshness of the air you smell when you’re at the beach. I like its freshness, but I also love the warmth the candle brand has managed to blend into the wave-like scent. It’s really an unexpected scent that makes you want to chill or to give it your all – your take.
DW Home Candle Woodsmoke Bourbon
DW Home Candle Woodsmoke Bourbon Fragrance Profile
Dark, amber notes of oak aged bourbon spun gently with smoked vanilla bean, hickory, and touches of birch wood, enhanced with crushed black peppercorn, spicy nutmeg, and golden clove bud.
Now we’re back to the DW Home scents I love the most – strong, rich scents. Woodsmoke Bourbon is a very complicated, intricate scent. If you’re into manly scents that will make you feel powerful and ready to take on the world, birchwood, golden clove, bourbon, and vanilla are definitely the way to go.

DW Home Richly Scented Candle Lava
DW Home Candle Lava Fragrance Profile
Island mango and tropical passionfruit infused with effervescent orange, sun-blushed papaya and sweet berry.
I remember burning my DW Home Lava candle A LOT when I first got it. This is a cool, summery scent that I did not find too overpowering, and yet, I’m not a big fan of tropical fruit-scented candles. I think the berry and orange balanced the warmth of the mango very well – otherwise, this DW candle would have been too fruity and sweet for me.
DW Home Candle Spiced Pumpkin
DW Home Candle Spiced Pumpkin Fragrance Profile
Harvest pumpkin interweaved with delectable notes of vanilla nutmeg, crushed cinnamon, and sweet brown sugar, baked into an all-butter pastry crust
I’ll never get tired of pumpkin-scented candles. I just don’t see this happening ever. DW Home has done a great job in mixing spice with pumpkin, and the candle they have come up with is very much fall-like, without falling into the too-sweet character that pumpkin candles can sometimes have.
DW Home Candles Review | Final Thoughts
There are not many candle brands that do a job as great as DW Home does. With blends of natural, synthetic, and paraffin-based wax, you can see from the get-go that every formula and recipe has been tested, worked, and refined to bring the best scents forward.
I’m looking forward to seeing how the brand will keep coming up with new, unreleased scents! In the meantime, if you want to know about another amazing California candle brand, I highly recommend you check out the Sand & Fog candles!
