From Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez to Oprah and The Chrisley’s – celebrities are notoriously in-love with the most luscious scents on the planet. But, they often pay hundreds of dollars for luxury candles, city candles, branded celebrity candles, all kinds of specialty stuff. But who has that money to blow? Not us! That’s why we created a line of luxury but affordable candles that smell like cities that match the same scents those superstars have in their homes. From our luxurious Beverly Hills Candle to our fresh and sultry Malibu Candle to our fan-favorite sweet & woodsy Nashville Candle – there’s something for everyone! If you’re a pop culture fanatic like us, this is for you! And if you’re in the market for a Los Angeles Candle, you’re in luck! We’re perfecting the custom candle scent and will be announcing it soon.
Candles That Smell Like Cities
Our celebrity candles are expertly crafted to mimic the scents that fill the homes of your favorite stars, except at a fraction of the price that they pay. And our soy candle is 100% natural! Many people ask why we have candles named after places and candles inspired by places – it’s because we’re celebrity fanatics and want to share the experience with those who haven’t visited or dream of coming back to these iconic places. Sure, you can find Diptyque City Candles, but those Diptyque Cities are so expensive.
Below are our currently available city candle options from our celebrity candle collection:
Beverly Hills Candle
A bold blend of warm cedarwood and musky notes beautifully blended with refreshing bergamot, zesty lemon, a hint of rose, and the slightest sweet fig, Beverly Hills fills the space around it with the smell of unimaginable wealth, transporting its audience to the city itself where its sophisticated, luxurious aromas billow from the homes of the superstars who live there.
FEELS LIKE waking up a millionaire.
Just like the waves crashing on the shore, Malibu packs a powerful and bright yet beautifully sweet punch thanks to the floral aromas of its jasmine, the complexity of its bold saffron, and its delicate woody notes. As the iconic city’s rich and famous residents enjoy a care-free day taking in the ocean breeze, you’ll join them as Malibu fills your space with those same radiant bursts of romance.
FEELS LIKE honeymooning in the Maldives.
Warm. Lush. Rich. Fun. Just like the laid-back, of-the-people superstars who call Music City home, Nashville’s hints of the finest Italian leather mixed with blossoming violet, sensual amber, and warm sandalwood embody a care-free, good ‘ole time.
FEELS LIKE jamming at a Dolly Parton concert.

Candles That Smell Like Your State
While we do have the best smelling city in the world – candles that is! – Velvet Ropes does not yet offer state candles. Don’t worry though. We have suggestions!
Homesick State Candles have taken the world by storm since launching in 2016. They are a “natural soy wax blend” and use custom fragrances to create a fun, personal experience.
Why are Soy Wax candles better?
According to the Live Strong foundation, Soy candles are far superior and much healthier than the alternatives. Below is an expert from their website.
Soy candles are made from soybeans, a natural, renewable source grown in many regions by local farmers. Paraffin candles are made from petroleum, which is a nonrenewable source that contains carcinogenic substances. These substances may be released into the air while burning, according to The Daily Green. Using candles made from soy supports local agriculture and farmers, allowing them to make money and grow their operations.
A candle made from soy wax burns cleaner with little soot released as the candle burns. Paraffin candles often create a significant amount of black soot that collects on the jar, as well as on your walls and other surfaces of the home. The soy candle may accumulate some black soot on the jar, but the amount is much less than paraffin candles. Soy candles are also non-toxic, so they won’t release toxins into the air as they burn.
Soy candles typically last longer than a paraffin candle of the same size, according to Planet Green. The reason behind the longevity of soy candles is the slower burning time and cooler burning temperature of the soybean-based wax. You may pay more for a soy candle initially, but the longer-lasting burn means you won’t have to buy new candles as often. Soy wax is also biodegradable, making it an investment that benefits the environment.
A soy candle works well for holding onto the scent from essential oils, which are often used to scent candles. Because they burn more slowly, the scent is gradually released; there won’t be an immediate wave of strong scent. This creates a more pleasant atmosphere for most people. The natural wax also holds onto color well, which makes it look more attractive.
