That Anthropologie Smell

One of the things I love about shopping at Anthropologie is the "feel" of the store which includes the smell. A few years ago I found out their signature smell is the Capri Blue Volcano candles they burn. The scent is described as tropical fruits and sugared citrus, but I wouldn't say it is overly "sweet" in an annoying kind of way. It has a depth to it...... a mysterious smoky tone....... I can't quite put my finger on it.
The link I provided is the only size I have bought thus far, but they offer different sizes and glass options as well as reed diffusers and room spray. I am kind of curious if the room spray would work as a perfume.... that is how much I love this scent. To be determined I guess. I don't mind spending this much on a candle because it is the equivalent to a Yankee Candle in size and quality. What I love even more about Capri Blue is they are made in the USA (Mississippi) and you have a beautiful mercury glass container to reuse after (just check out Pinterest for all of the ideas). That being said, I have found some candles lately that are VERY close to Anthro's signature aroma and thought I would share. I just love being able to make my house smell like this, and it is instantly calming to me. Even if my entire house is a mess, when I light this it makes me feel better.
This first picture is the one and only Capri Blue candle!
This Clementine & Mango one I found at Hobby Lobby. Watch their sales because candles were 50% off the week I bought this one. I know I paid under $10 for it.
Here we have Maui Sunset from Pier 1. I normally do not like Pier 1 candles because I feel they smell great in the store but then do not carry the scent very far in your home when burned. This collection they have is much better though.

When I first saw the Island Moonlight candle at Target, I was drawn to the peacock design. When I smelled that familiar scent I was sold. This brand has several size options too and the reed diffusers. The link says it is only sold online, but they are in stores.

Thank you for the suggestions! I will have to try these. I agree with you on Pier 1 Candles. It is nice to know those ones do not act the same as their predecessors. I have two Volcano candles I need to burn. I am terrible at lighting my candles. But it is one of my favorite scents. You are awesome! Thanks for the research!

Thank you for this great info on candles! I too, love the Anthro scent!!! And, just like you I feel so relaxed while burning them! My question is this: Do you know of a Yankee Candle that is similar? I'm asking because sometimes I like to burn votives and Antro only sells Volcano in jars. Thank you for any information! JC
