If you’re easily smitten by scent or you've taken to creating a WFH set-up that looks like a small séance-for-one, allow me to interrupt your afternoon with some very good news. Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale finally opens up to the public next week on Wednesday, July 28, which means that one of the best (and only) times of the year to find deals on bougie candles is around the corner.

To quickly bring anyone who's made it this long on God's Green Earth without shopping Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale up to speed, the cult-loved sale involves fall fashion and beauty exclusives discounted ahead of season. Prices return to their regular retail value when the sale ends, which *set a reminder now* is August 9.

Among the most crazy-in-a-good-way deals to covet this year are candles as Anniversary Sale has a handful of exclusive sets from luxe brands that rarely, if ever, go on sale. Take, for example, Malin + Goetz's votive set, which includes 3 the brand's most popular creations in the woody and spicy scent family for only $42 (when one votive alone from the brand normally goes for $20). Diptyque's set of 5 travel-sized best sellers (including Baies and Figieurs!) is another can't-miss deal as each candle comes out to costing only $12.

Those in need of hostess gifts for peak beach house invite season would be wise to peep deals on Jo Malone's crowd-pleasing Lime, Basil & Madarin scent or NEST Fragrances's cult-favorite grapefruit candle.

Floral scent lovers, note the Late Bloomer Set from all-natural brand Boy Smells, where each votive comes out to only $11.20 a pop. Full-size hand-poured soy candles from Mala the Brand can also be scooped up for over 30 percent off. And the list goes on... With chicly packaged offerings from Apotheke, Cancelled Plans, Brooklyn Candle Studio, and (believe it or not) more brands all part of the sale as well.

It's worth noting that Anniversary Sale is notorious for selling out of items left and right, which means this is definitely not the sale to procrastinate when it opens up to non-Nordstrom cardholders next week. Until then, wishing you some joyous future you time.
