5 Great Candle Packaging Designs

Candle Packaging to light up your life!

Heard of Hygge? This Danish phenomenon dominated 2016.  Hygge (pronounced hue-guh) is a Danish word that roughly translates to cosiness. In essence, it’s all about creating a warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with good people around you. The warm glow of candlelit is hygge, along with log fires, knitted blankets and hot chocolates!

So why not get your Hygge on with our round up of our favourite candle packaging designs…

1 Rewined designed by Stich

We love the re-branding of these Rewined candles by design agency Stich. These natural soy wax candles have been poured into cut wine bottles. Stich designed the Kraft paper labels with coloured wax pressed seals to identify the different scents.  The new packaging also incorporates a label for the candlemaker of each candle to date and sign.

2. Chick Lit Candles designed by Morgan Sterns

How fun are these Chick Lit candles? Each candle has a persona and a card to go with it. Choose from The Girls’Girl, The Over Thinker, The Heart Filler, The Wedding Boss and The Dog Champion.  The scent of the candle is married to the personality of the candles. For example The Overthinker  has a scent of amberwood nectar which is deep and complex, the idea is to burn this candle and give your mind a braincation! We love the fresh colours of this packaging and the tins are beautiful enough to warrant keeping them for storing make up brushes, pens or your loose change.

5.  Message Candles designed by For Brands Studio

This luxurious looking candle with its handmade crystal glass holder measures up to its elegant packaging. Message candles offer a service to enable you to send a message on a candle. The packaging is simple, crisp and clean with its contrasting white and wood accent box.

“Inspired by the candle, its amazing aesthetics and a tiny detail – a wooden wick — we decided to use the same real wood across the packaging design. We played a lot with different thickness of special wood veneers, to achieve perfect results. It has been very challenging to apply hot-stamping technique on the wood, but the final result was worth it.” For Brands Studio
