Best Candle Shops

1) Scent by SIX

Key servicesAmbient Scenting (home, office etc)
Address313 Orchard Rd, #B2-30 Singapore 238895 
Operating hours11am – 9pm

Since its inception in July 2016, SIX has been making strides within the scenting industry with an expanding collection of fine fragrances, DIY scent kits, and home scenting range. From a humble collection of three scents (123 Tribeca, 1724 Puka and 27˚F Biei), SIX now boasts two product lines. They include the SIX home scenting collection of diffusers, soy candles, nebulizers and pure essential oils, two additional scents (Eclat and 2065 UJONG), as well as a DIY scent kit. 

An emotional experience is transient, mysterious and powerful. Like immersive spaces, it evokes, excites, and it also evolves. Our sixth sense tells us things like no one else does. That’s why the goal at SIX is to reveal, re-enact, and remake immersive spaces through scents that capture the essence – in a bottle.

Key Differentiators

  1. SIX doesn’t sell perfumes, we sell stories that evoke emotions and memories. 
  2. Uses scents that soothe, to heal, to champion mental wellness.
  3. Empower the less fortunate not just with money, but gets them involved in our creative work to encourage and empower them.

Client Testimonial

This scent shop is latest brand new shop to open in Bugis Junction. Very cool scents, very pleasing and relaxing. They offer customization too so you can create your own scent.

Client Testimonial

I am a pretty big perfume fan so when I had a stay in Singapore on the way back from a holiday I found this place and went along to check it out.

The store itself is lovely and in a really cool area of Singapore; the Arab Quarter… great place to spend a few hours browsing boutiques etc. I went in early the day and was able to book a session to have a bespoke consultation later that afternoon. I have done a few things like this before and while fun they have never quite worked out how I wanted.

This was so good though. The perfumer is incredibly knowledgeable but also very relaxed. I was not sure what I wanted so we just chatted and that helped reveal a brief for him. The whole experience was amazing and the ingredients he has available are really top notch….

Often things like this area about the experience and you get great memories but then an average product… which is understandable as creating a perfume that is balanced etc is not the work an hour or so… but I along with a fantastic experience (much better than I was expecting) I also got what is honestly a fantastic and unique perfume….

Also… for what it is I thought it was great value for money. There are probably very few other places in the world where you can get this service for this price.

Very highly recommended.

Client Testimonial

Being a fan of zesty scents, their Ginger + Lemongrass definitely hits the mark of my favorite scents! My then-ordinary room got elevated to a very hotel-like atmosphere. When I lit it in the morning, I feel energized and instantly in a good mood! The hint of ginger travels through my veins relaxing every bit of my stressed muscles. It is also worth mentioning that customer service is outstanding and responses are very helpful!

Besides beauty products, one of the other product lines that the Min List holds is actually their candles. They are actually quite inexpensive, considering the wide variety of their candles.

Will definitely purchase other scents to try 😀

Candles by Made by Alien XYZ make us wonder whether they were made by aliens. They’re completely plant-based, vegan, non-cruelty-free, GMO-free, paraben-free, SLS/SLES-free, and dye-free. That’s not all; their fragrant candles are free of synthetic fragrances.

Their candles are made of coconut wax, which is unusual because it is a costly wax. The fragrance is provided by 100% pure essential oils and the wooden wicks produce that extra crackling ambience when you light up the wick. With the additional flourish of gems, their candles also appear to be quite gorgeous.

Simply scrape the wax from your un-waxed candles and use it for dry elbows and knees. These crystals will be visible with this candle. They’d also make an excellent Instagram photo!

Key Differentiators

  1. You can simply use the wax for your dry elbows and knees and extract these crystals

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

If you have any questions about candle shops in Singapore, you can refer to the frequently asked questions (FAQ) about the Best Candle Shops in Singapore below:

Is it safe to buy candles online from a local store in Singapore?

Yes, it is safe to buy candles online from a local store in Singapore. Most reputable stores and websites ensure secure payment methods and offer various types of shipping options with tracking numbers for your convenience. Be sure to read the reviews or check with friends and family before making a purchase to make sure you are getting a quality product. Additionally, some stores may offer discounts or free shipping when you purchase multiple candles at once.

What types of waxes are used by candle makers and retailers in Singapore?

Candle makers and retailers in Singapore typically use paraffin wax, beeswax, soy wax, palm wax, or a combination of these. Paraffin wax is made from petroleum and is the most common type of wax used for candle making due to its affordability and ease of handling. Beeswax is naturally sourced from bee hives, and is a popular choice due to its natural scent and the fact that it burns more cleanly than paraffin wax.

Soy wax is derived from soybeans, making it a vegan-friendly option, and it also burns cleaner than paraffin wax. Palm wax comes from palm oil and creates unique designs when used for candle making due to its ability to crystallize as it cools. Each of these waxes has unique properties, so be sure to read up on them before making your purchase.
