Nars Candles at Tangs Orchard

Ever since NARS arrived on our sunny shores, I’ve received several queries on whether the brand’s famous candles are available here.

The good news: They’re finally in Singapore. The bad news: They’re a whopping S$120 each (they’re only US$50 in the States).

NARS Scented Candles Quote

For sale here are Acapulco, Jaipur and Oran – the last being François Nars’s favourite.

Encased in white, black or red matte glass with the NARS logo, each paraffin-free candle is composed of rich essential oils, allowing for an optimum burn time of 70 hours.


Below are their scent characteristics, according to the brand.

NARS Scented Candle in Acapulco

Acapulco: A delicious top note of rich, velvety chocolate is combined with a delicate blend of whipped cream accord and coffee bean for intensity and depth, while the dry down captures the senses with a distinctive base of cocoa powder and creamy vanilla.

NARS Scented Candle in Jaipur

Jaipur: Top notes of a teasingly sweet blend of citrus are complimented with hints of pomegranate and balanced by rich, exotic floral notes of rose, jasmine and geranium. Full-bodied base notes of amber and vanilla add warmth to the tantalizing scent for an overall sweet and seductive sensory experience.

NARS Scented Candle in Oran

Oran: A complex blend of tuberose and white gardenia blossoms, heightened by floral touches of violette, jasmine and heliotrope. Sweet balsamic undertones of styrax and resin help compliment and balance vibrant citrus, bergamot and grapefruit notes along with luscious leafy greens.

From what I know, these candles are limited in quantity and are here only while stocks last, for now. If you have some spare cash lying around and would love the instant gratification, you can purchase them at the brand’s Tangs Orchard boutique. Despite the exorbitant price tag here, a friend decided to buy one from Tangs anyway, as she didn’t want to deal with the hassle of overseas shipping. If you can wait and don’t mind the extra work, you might be better off ordering online.

      I’ve no idea, Jac. I’m guessing shopping costs? You might be better off ordering from SAKS.
