2020 has been a dead ringer for a nightmare that’s fit for a movie directed by Steven Spielberg himself. Just as things were seemingly calming down and life was returning to ‘normal’ (whatever that means anymore), Pakistan and most other countries have been thrown into the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. While offices still remain open, schools may be closing again and it’s safe to say a lot of us will be spending a significant amount of time at home during the winter months.
A trip to the spa or a weekend getaway may seem risky, but thankfully candles are a sure-shot way of adding a luxurious element to either a living space or a home office.
Here’s a list of candles that can be ordered online and delivered to your doorstep, without you having to risk stepping out unnecessarily:
This candle by the MEEM candle studio, based in Lahore, has a top note of cinnamon and clove with base notes of Pie Crust, Vanilla and Caramel. These scented candles are made out of 100% soy wax and hand poured.

Motia or the jasmine plant flowers in the summer months, but the Motia Noir candle from the Karachi Candle Company will make any room smell like you’ve got a vase full of handpicked motias. The two-wick soy wax candle burns for 35-40 hours based and with its minimalistic glass jar and silver lid, it easily compliments the aesthetics of any room.
