Few possess the power of Taylor Swift – the multiple-genre singer who is the only musician to have topped Billboard's 100 chart for 52 weeks (a whole year) running. Considering her influence, it is inevitable that Taylor Swift is the trend-setter of a generation – whether with her iconic red lipstick or the favorite features of her homes.
The musician, who recently released her record-breaking album Midnights, could have her pick of the best candles available – but which scent did she recently reveal as her favorite? The answer is Tree House by Byredo. A scent that is described as 'enchanting' – thanks to its spicy forestlike aroma that could come from a fairytale.
When answering Vogue's 73 Questions, Taylor shared that the woody fragrance is her favorite aroma; eagle-eyed readers may have already spotted the candle on a tray in her living room.

Byredo's Tree House draws inspiration from architect Takashi Kobayashi who constructs buildings using the natural environment of Japanese forests. The scent is ideal for those who enjoy woody fragrances in their home; thanks to its spicy sandalwood undertones and deep base notes of leather.
Taylor purchased her Beverly Hills estate in 2015. The estate once belonged to Samuel Goldwyn, a Polish-born American film producer best known for Wuthering Heights and The Best Years of Our Lives, among others, released in the 1930s and 40s. It remains her primary residence while in Los Angeles.
In the footage, Taylor shows viewers around her $25 million home – offering a glimpse at her personality-filled decorating ideas. These include the music room, and her kitchen, where she keeps a VMA (MTV Video Music Award) next to her coffee maker. In her living space, the candle sits on a table next to her rust-hued armchair, where she has added a striped cushion and a cream-colored throw.
Byredo's Tree House may be Taylor Swift's favorite candle, but she also reportedly enjoys Le Labo's Santal 26 – a luxury candle that was spotted in her London home during the first secret-session listening party of her Lover album.
Attendee Nadianiffi shared a Reddit post that revealed the singer had the candles dotted 'everywhere' around her mansion which is reportedly in Primrose Hill, North London.

Le Labo's soy wax candle has a smoky, leathery scent (similar to that of Tree House). It is blended in the label's workshop and hand-poured in a sleek glass vessel for an elegant look in any home. Le Labo recommends placing it in the larger rooms of your home, where the fragrance can circulate.
It seems evident that Taylor Swift admires woody, leather scents above all else – but who can resist these candles when they look and smell this good?
