Good Black Friday candle sales are easy to come by—it’s a fun fact of life come holiday time. There are even some early deals to shop right now, whether you’re looking for subtle mood lighting or something that will fill your entire space with a seasonal scent. No matter which retailer holds your candle loyalty—which, yes, is totally a thing—you’ve got plenty of options. This year, we found an abundance of Black Friday deals that range from your classic wax melts, tea lights, votive candles, candle refills, gift sets, diffusers, single-wick candles, candle holders, large jar candles, and 3-wick candles, to some unexpected room sprays, shower gel, lotion, and hand soaps.
From fall fragrances like apple cider and more neutral scents like green tea to jolts of freshness like grapefruit, a single scented candle can really change the vibe of your home. So ditch the gift card, because a carefully chosen candle can make a fantastic holiday gift for just about anyone on your list. And don’t forget to treat yourself to something special as well—when it comes to choosing the home fragrance you want to go all in on… you’re going to have to go with your gut on that one (or better yet, your nose).
Take a break from the holiday sale ads and step away from your Amazon checkout page (for now)—ahead, you’ll find our picks for the early Black Friday candle sales we’re shopping.

Between November 22 and November 29, your favorite spot for literally all things home decor is offering up to 30% off decor (including candles). Plus, clearance items will be up to 60% off already marked-down prices. Happy bargain hunting.
There are two great things happening when you shop Obakki this Black Friday season: You’ll get 20% off your purchase between November 22 and November 29, and they’ll donate $20 of your purchase to the Kibera School Sponsorship program, which helps children in Kenya access education.
It’d be easy to do all your holiday shopping at Nordstrom this year, especially since items are sure to be on super-sale. We’d use this opportunity to invest in some designer candles from the retailer’s selection, like this rich and earthy scent from one of our favorite candle brands, Boy Smells. It’s got a 50-hour burn time and the luxe jar will upgrade your home decor situation.

In case you’re already set on a nice coffee maker, there are lots of discounted candles to be found at Amazon. Our tip? Skip the Yankee Candle collection—unless cheesy, nostalgic candles are just the thing your home needs—and go for something neutral like a spiral taper.
Yes that’s right, your favorite bedding brand also makes delightful fragrances. And right now, they’re on 20% off with the rest of the brand’s offerings.
