Looking for the best candles for Father’s Day? Look no further!

31 May 21

Father’s Day isn’t until the 20th of June, so you’ve still got a few weeks left to get your presents for him sorted. But don’t fall into the trap of getting too complacent – it’s surprising how quickly that date can rocket up on you! Now, we know that luxury scented candles aren’t the type of present that’s traditionally associated with Father’s Day – but that’s exactly what can make them quite so special! Plus, we’ve got one or two in particular that we think make especially good Father’s Day presents… our top picks are below!


This is, without a doubt, one of our most singularly masculine scented candles here at Melt. Saddle’s blend of sandalwood, cedar, moss and amber gives it a distinctively warm, rich scent, making it the ultimate choice for snugs, libraries and sitting rooms. If your Dad has a fondness for retreating into an armchair with a good book, pottering about in a back room, or setting himself down at his study with pen and paper at the ready, then rest assured, you won’t go wrong with Saddle.

Rich Cream

Rich Cream is a wonderfully versatile scent with a unisex appeal. It strikes a curious mix between woody, spicy and floral, with distinctive warm undertones that it shares with Saddle. To be honest, there are all sorts of adjectives that we could use to describe Rich Cream; elegant, sophisticated, smooth and highly refined. It’s all those things and more!

It’s just what you need to make a space more inviting, helping to cultivate a sense of tranquility and relaxation in any room (and Lord knows that we could all do with a bit more of both these days!). In fact, it’s been described by one of our customers as the ‘smell of a hug’ – and really, what more could you ask for Father’s Day?



OK, we’ll admit it – this one is perhaps a little more overtly feminine than our other suggestions, but we’d be remiss not to mention it. Joy is such a classic summer scent, with a sharp citrus zing – excellent for kickstarting those particularly muggy summer days. With its energising freshness and its boundless zest for life, Joy is very aptly named – at its heart it’s a celebration, an ode to the everyday happinesses of life. And while it might not be the most masculine of scents, that quality alone makes it a perfect encapsulation of everything we all love about Father’s Day.

Those are just a few of our favourite choices, of course – you might well have one or or two of your own! Feel free to take your pick from the full range of luxury scented candles available right here on our site. Alternatively, you can see them for yourself with a trip to our Little Shop on the Farm, where our staff will be only too happy to provide the answers to any questions that you might have. We’re always pleased to see you!
