Outdoor candles citronella

Citronelle/Lemongrass Candle 1.5kg

Burn time: 120 hours

Weight: 52.9oz

Why we love it: Diptyque candles are tried and tested and certainly well-loved by us, so you can estimate how thrilled we were to see that the brand now stock stylish candles for outdoor use. We love the herbal mix of lemongrass with the bug-repelling citronella here, not to mention the garden candle pot is gorgeously designed and makes for a wonderful outdoor dining centrepiece.

Outdoor candles for bugs

M&S COLLECTION Sand Blast Citronella 4 Wick Candle

Burn time: N/A

Weight: N/A

Why we love it: In a neutral colourway candle holder that reminds us of old town Ibiza or perhaps Tulum, this M&S citronella candle is a top pick for garden dining, big enough with its four wicks to protect everyone at your soiree from getting bitten by the pesky mosquitos. We’re big fans of the gourmand ‘edible’ scent, and with so many wicks, it’ll serve as an excellent night light, too.

Weatherproof outdoor candles

Burn time: N/A – flameless candle

Weight: 79.3oz

Why we love it: If manually lighting six of the best outdoor candles or, worse, tealights, isn’t your cuppa tea, then chances are a flameless LED candle will be just the ticket for you. Weatherproof and battery powered, this pick from Waitrose Garden will save you money in the long run and provides that same glowy alfresco ambience you’re looking for. Only upgrade would be if it was solar powered!
