There’s nothing like candlelight to set the tone and atmosphere of a dinner party, a bath, or just for a autumnal working from home companion. We’re looking specifically at tapered dinner candles (that means the shape of the candle gradually elongates and thins out as you get nearer the top). Here’s our round up of the finest.

Very Thins Black Organic Beeswax Dinner Candle Set sold by Glassette

One For Witchy Occult Dinner Parties

Glassette’s stocking BZZWAX & Co’s tapered dinner candles, and we’ve got a particular penchant for this elongated noir candle.

It’s also good to know that this one’s a sustainable option. It’s made from organic beeswax, and for every candle lit, one pollinates an acre of flowers to provide fertile habitat for bees.

Best For: Tarot card readings, summer solstice dinners, or any gatherings of a more witchy note.

The Earthy One

Crafted in Cumbria, Toast’s take to the tapered dinner candle is going old school. These candles (which come in a pair tied together), are made from English beeswax, where the traditional hand-dipping technique is used (which has been done at the Cumbrian workshop for over 40 years).

This means you repeatedly dip the wicks (that are suspended from a frame) eventually until the molten wax cools, only for another layer to be added, until you eventually end up with a beautiful candle.  Oh, and it also arrives in a recycled box.

Best For: This one’s makes a fabulous gifting option.
