DW Home Candles' Carnival Collection Brings the Best Theme Park Scents Indoors

Ever since I was introduced to the brand's zodiac candles last month, I've been a massive fan of DW Home Candles.

The brand seems to constantly be dropping glorious collections of new and adorably packaged candles boasting pretty much every scent under the sun. Basically, if you've got a candle in mind, DW Home probably has it.

One of their latest drops is their summer-appropriate Carnival collection featuring wonderful scents inspired by everything related to fairs, theme parks and the circus. These hand-poured candles are available in a medium, single-wicked size for $14 and a larger, double-wicked size for $18, beautifully contained within glass vessels topped with cute metal lids that reflect the scents within.


The brand was generous enough to send me a couple of its candles—the Ice Cream Sandwich and Churro scents—but honestly, everything in the collection sounds scrumptious.


Ice Cream Sandwich

DW Home sent me the large version of their Ice Cream Sandwich candle, and I can say from experience that it is big. I burned it for basically two weeks straight while I worked, filling my office space with the most delicious chocolatey scent. The Ice Cream Sandwich scent is meant to replicate the essence of a vanilla bean ice cream with chocolate chips, sandwiched between two chocolate cookies, but the chocolate was definitely the prevalent scent here, and it smelled so much better than any chocolate candle I've ever burned before. Anytime someone stepped into my room, they'd get a confused look on their face and ask if, somehow, I was baking brownies in my office. Nope—it was just this candle. Plus, the ice cream sandwich pattern on top is too cute. If you're a chocolate-lover, there's no going wrong with this candle.

The brand also sent me their Churro candle in the medium size, and I have to admit I was a bit hesitant about it. Before burning, the candle had a heavy, sugary-sweet vanilla scent that I'm not usually too fond of, but I moved past my trepidations, began burning and discovered I actually adored this candle. The scent is partly cinnamon, partly buttery, with the sugar scent taking a backseat—and I couldn't get enough of the festive flag design, either. If you love the smell of freshly fried churros, this is the candle for you.

Peach Rings

The Peach Rings candle emulates the scent of the classic gummy, sugar-dipped candies with a blend of peach, apricot, mango and vanilla.

Butter Pecan Ice Cream

Butter pecan is one iconic summer ice cream flavor, and this candle brings its scent to life by blending the fragrance of fresh-roasted pecans with salted butter, cream and vanilla.

Sundae Funday

What's more summery than a sundae? The Sundae Funday candles bring the smells of all of the essential sundae ingredients into one place with a blend of vanilla, berries and even the waffle cone, plus whipped cream, chocolate, peanuts and (of course) the cherry on top.

Fizzy Cola

Is there anything more refreshing than a crisp cola on a sizzling summer's day? This candle evokes the spirit of the fizzy drink by combining lime, lemon, ginger and cinnamon.

Butter Popcorn

Thank goodness the theaters are open again and we can go back to enjoying fresh, buttered popcorn from the stand again. This candle brings to mind freshly popped, lightly salted kernels drenched in warm butter.
