A Guide to Candle Scents

Nothing quite compares to the soothing joy you feel when lighting a scented soy candle in your home. They give off an incredible array of fragrances, creating a special atmosphere wherever they are used. Whether you’re winding down with a warm bath, enjoying a romantic night in, or simply looking for an attractive decorative item – scented candles add that little je ne sais quoi to any living space. But with such a wide range of different scents and types to choose from, it can be overwhelming to decide which ones are right for you. If you’re craving some guidance on the best scented candles for your place, our guide will help you pick out the best scented candles that will make your home feel like a peaceful haven.

Choosing the Right Candle Scent

Selecting the perfect candle scent is like a journey. It’s all about finding something that reflects your style. Let’s take a closer look at six distinct scent categories from our list.

Fresh Scents

Fresh scents evoke a feeling of cleanliness and serenity. Popular fresh scents include linen, soft citrus, Tuscan fig, and lemon myrtle. These aromas are great in bedrooms or bathrooms as they create a calming atmosphere that is perfect for unwinding after a long day or preparing for sleep.

Fruity Scents

When it comes to fruity fragrances, lychee and guava are two of the most popular choices. Both have a sweet aroma that will transport you back in time to childhood summers spent eating juicy fruits in the sun. These fragrances work well in kitchens where their sweetness will energize the room without being overwhelming.

Floral Scents

Floral scents are delicate yet powerful with hints of femininity and romance. Popular floral notes include frangipani, peony, and gardenia. All of which evoke springtime with their light yet complex aroma profiles. These fragrances work best in living rooms where they can provide a pleasant backdrop while entertaining guests or reading a good book.

Earthy Scents

Earthy aromas evoke feelings of warmth and comfort – just what we need during these cold winter months. Spices and chai are a great option if you like spicy aromas. Its blend of cardamom, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, and ginger creates a delicious mixture that will fill up any room with mouthwatering goodness.

Wood Scents

Wood-based candles add depth and sophistication wherever they go with notes ranging from sandalwood, vanilla, Petulia, cedar, and saffron. Their warm undertones make them perfect for home libraries as well as bathrooms where their rich complexity adds an air of luxury without overpowering other aromas already present in the space.

Indigenous Botanicals

Indigenous botanical scents like Kakadu plum invoke a sense of adventure in any room thanks to their exotic aroma profiles derived from native Australian plants. Aromatherapy candles made with indigenous botanical ingredients work well in offices as they inspire creativity while helping people stay focused on what matters most.
