The Top 5 French Quarter Candles From New Orleans, LA

Midnight in The French Quarter Candle by Parish Scents

A French Quarter candle is a perfect gift for any occasion, either to someone else, or for yourself! The French Quarter is one of the most distinctive and interesting neighborhoods in New Orleans (also referred to as Crescent City, or Big Easy).

Being the oldest part of the city, it's a mishmash of architectural styles, from Victorian to Greek Revival, with something for everyone. And where there are lots of old buildings with a long history of diverse cultures, cuisine and more, there are usually some pretty neat candles to be found as well.

Parish Scents - Midnight in The French Quarter Candle

Parish Scents is a family-owned New Orleans company that focuses exclusively on candles. The owner was born and raised in New Orleans, LA, so you can trust that - being a natural born New Orleanian - they know what they're doing when it comes to capturing the scents of this fascinating city.

They have a decent selection of scents, from the obvious (like Creme Brulee, Beignets and Bourbon Street) to the more obscure (like 1718, Jazz Club on St Charles, and A NOLA Kinda Morning).
