Sims 4 CC: Candles, Incense, Yankee Candles & More

This post may contain affiliate links. If you buy something we may get a small commission at no extra cost to you. (Learn more).

Listen, if there’s one thing we all have in common, it’s the universal obsession with candles.

Admit it – you love shopping for candles. You love going to the store, smelling all the different jars of wax, and then deciding if you want to buy only five candles or get a nice round 10.

I’m the same way. Whether it’s Yankee candles, Woodwick candles, or just some regular drugstore candles, I want them all.

They smell nice, they look cute, and they make me feel like it’s a cozy fall afternoon all year round. This love for candles doesn’t exclude anyone.

Even your Sims feel it. I bet they love candles just as much as us.

If you’re in the mood for treating them (or are simply looking for a way to buy more candles without spending your actual money) then you’ve come to the right place.

I can’t help but think these candles would be perfect in a bathroom. How do I know that? Because they’re a part of a stunning bathroom set that you can also download here.

But for this set of candles you can get them in 6 different colors, including black, white, and some lovely pastels.

My personal favorite is the grey – there aren’t enough grey candles if you ask me.

One of my all-time favorite candles is Vibrant Saffron – which is Yankee Candle.

I love Yankee Candles. And there’s a reason for that.

It’s not just candles that we all love – because incense is great too.

It smells lovely.

It lasts longer.

It makes you feel like it’s less of a fire hazard.

And for your Sims which are basically walking fire hazards, this incense holder is a must-have. It’s shaped like a leaf, comes in 6 colors, and has its own incense stick.

There are many items available in this meditation CC pack – including these beautifully ornate incense holders.

And let me just say there’s a lot of detail going into them.

My favorite bits are those two used matches next to the matchbox. If you’re going for authenticity in your Sim’s house, this is the way to go.

We all leave matches around.

There have been many moments in my life when I’d wished that I could just become a Sim and live in that virtual reality.

This is undoubtedly one of them.

I really want to own these elegant essential oil diffusers. They look so pretty, and they come with some of my favorite smells of all time, like Romantic Sandalwood and Invigorating Cinnamon.

There are 8 swatches here and 6 unique scents available.

What’s more, these diffusers are functional. Each smell will get your Sim in a different mood.

Need them to focus? Try Sharpening Saffron.

Do they need to relax? Give Soothing Sage a go.

Give ‘em a try and see what you think. I have a feeling your Sims will love them.

Reed diffusers are an essential item in every young adult’s life.At some point, we all move out of our parents’ house and find our own place.

And sometimes these places (whether college dorms or shoddy rentals) don’t allow candles. Apparently young people can’t be trusted not to set the place on fire.

This is when reed diffusers come in.

Now you can still have your room smelling lovely while appeasing your landlord. They truly are the perfect compromise – both for your lifestyle and for your Sims.

Get these Faye Diffusers for any of your Sims that are only just started uni. After all, they’ll need it for the brand new dorm build you’ll be making for them.

I mean, dorms stink. Everyone knows that.
