A Guide to Finding Your Unique Fragrance
Have you ever walked into a candle store and felt like you were going to pass out from how strong the scents were? Or maybe you've tried a few candles, but they just weren't quite right? Trying to find your perfect candle can be a bit of an odyssey.
There is good news, though; the candle scent you'll love the most is waiting for your search. Whether relaxing or refreshing, there's a perfect match out on our shelves!
This blog post will guide you through finding YOUR perfect candle - so that you can finally find yourself in a scent.
The Scented Journey 101
When it comes to finding your perfect candle scent, it's essential to first think about what type of scent you are drawn to. Do you prefer fruity or floral aromas? Are you more of a citrusy person, or do you like the smell of vanilla and sugar cookies? Once you know what types of scents appeal to you, you can start narrowing down your search!
The scent is an integral part of our lives, evoking memories and emotions. Scents are categorized in the following way: top notes, middle notes, and base notes. The three elements work together to create a complex scent that everyone can interpret differently.
TOP NOTES: dissipate quickly and are light and subtle. Top notes include tropical scents like orange and mandarin.
Mandarins and Oranges are the perfect instant sense pleasers. You get sunshine in a bottle without any of that fake "best smell" stuff to make you feel exhausted! Excellent for an indoor mood booster, these sweet little guys will put a smile on your face instantly - even if it's been flat out horrible outside all day long (or week).
Happy Birthday! Make their birthday special with a gift that keeps on giving. Celebrate the best day of the year with a one-of-a-kind scent, truly the ‘icing on the cake’. Smooth caramel, mandarin, oranges and peach combine to create a light and delectable confection. Simply mouth-watering! Treat yourself or someone special with the ultimate scented experience.

MIDDLE NOTES: The middle is the fragrance's heart, where our emotions are drawn to. Middle notes include floral scents like rose and calming like jasmine.
Rose smells like the perfect date. It's light, airy, and fresh with just enough sweetness to make it memorable. All the above without being cloying or overwhelming on your senses - in other words: not too much but always present, so you remember how great the room smelled when you walked in!
Our favorite middle note candles:
Bring the essence of spring to your home with the elegant and tantalizing fragrance of Freshly Cut Roses.
Unwind with the rich, sultry fragrance of wild jasmine flowers combined with delicate notes of soft rose petals.
BASE NOTES: These are what give a fragrance its foundation and strength. They also help to determine a scent's longevity. The most popular base note fragrance is vanilla.
Vanilla has a creamy, warm and comforting yet also slightly exotic scent. It's not just about sugar or cookie smells, though those are present in vanilla too; it's more complex with an underlying gourmand note that makes you want to eat everything around them!
Our favorite base note candles:
Playful notes of bitter-sweet cherries and creamy vanilla create the perfect balance of elegance. Indulge your senses with a unique aroma.
