Shop for Aromatic Candles at These Cambridge Shops

Candles offer an easy way to add a decorative and personal touch to your home. Whether like outdoorsy scents or sweet ones like apple pie, several local shops feature some of the best candles in town.

Those near our Cambridge apartments include:


CandleLux boasts that its "luxury soy candles will take you to your happy place." They're hand-poured in small batches and feature premium fragrances and pure essential oils. Scents include Grandma's Hot Apple Pie, Alpine Night,  and Campfire Marshmallow. In addition, the shop also offers candle-pouring parties. They're perfect for celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, engagements, and other special events. You'll create your own candles and body products and can choose from over 30 different scents.

Noted Candles

Founded in a small Boston apartment, Noted Candles was started by a girl who wanted to make her space homier. Today, Noted is owned by Ashley Rossi, who took it from farmers' markets to a brick-and-mortar location. She offers nature-inspired candles that are hand-poured and made from vegan and cruelty-free ingredients. Scents include Sandalwood Musk, Lime Basil Mint, and Sea Salt Sage. Shop at the store, or place an order online for convenient shipping.

Place & Gather

Place & Gather is a unique destination where "Palm Beach meets a New England gift and home decor boutique." It offers a varied selection, whether you're shopping for yourself or that hard-to-buy-for someone. Candle scents include Magnolia, Coastal Calm, and Birchwood Pine. You'll also find dinnerware, art prints, picture frames, and much more.

In addition to the candle shops, Luxe at Alewife is also near yarn stores and other locally owned businesses. If you are searching for a place to call home, please contact our leasing team. They would love for you to see the amenities and floor plans our apartments in Cambridge have to offer.
