There are several tips for choosing candle scents that appeal to a wide range of customers. After reviewing, reading, and analyzing the information, we compiled a listing of the best candle scents around. These scents have been ranked in no specific order. However, complimenting every candle scent is usually a user review on their individual experience with that scent in a candle. This will allow candle lovers to share their experiences without bias.
In the consumer reviews, moods are usually mentioned as a factor in a candle scent’s effectiveness. Candle makers often create scents that are specifically for a mood, holiday, or love. Some aromatherapy experts create candles that are “just right” for a specific person. If you are looking for just the right candle scent for your home fragrance needs, a quick search on the internet will show many choices.
One of my personal favorites is Apple Jack. This fragrance is fresh from the garden and is reminiscent of warm baked apple pie. The scent has deep roots in Africa but is now available all over the world. This blend of rich, complex aromas has become almost a staple of aromatherapy today. When I first laid my hands on it, I assumed it would be an okay scent to work into my body lotion.
Lemon and lavender are both popular candle scents that are light and floral. It’s hard not to fall in love with the combination of lemon and lavender. Most of these candles sport a light amber base and a sweet top note with some more oriental flower notes. It’s safe to say that any woman who has ever tried to find a balance between masculine and feminine can enjoy this type of fragrance, it’s just a matter of experimenting to find the best one for you.
Another scent that is part of the candle scents that are wonderful to freshen up with is lavender. Lavender is such a lovely, gentle scent. It is actually derived from the plant name, Lavandula augustifolia, which is found growing wild in the Latin American and Asian lands. In the Americas, this scent is called just lavender. Today it is grown in the Mediterranean and used as a spice or aromatherapy oil, it has amazing healing properties and calming effects.
A candle scent with a hint of vanilla is also quite lovely. If you like the smell of something with a bit of a bite, then you will love the combination of vanilla and chamomile. Both of these fragrances are produced from the same plant, the Lavandula augustifolia, and both are used in many types of fragrances today. One of the scents that is made with vanilla is called “vanilla de la Tea.”
Many candle scents can be created by combining different essential oils. The mixing of different oils can produce all sorts of wonderful combinations. For example, the blend of sandalwood and patchouli oil can be a terrific combination that adds warmth to your home. Another amazing combination is a blend of cypress, Rosemary, peppermint, lavender, cedar, lemon peel, bay leaves, lemon grass, lime, and rose water. This specific mixture has been found to have properties that are said to stimulate sexual desire.
When you are creating your own candles burners, it is important to pay attention to the type of wick that you use. Most scented candles burn with wicks made of cotton. Wicks burn slowly and they do not provide as much of a rich aroma as do other types of candles. However, the natural aroma from a candle with a wick made of cotton will still last much longer. In addition to using quality wicks, you want to make sure that you are purchasing good quality scented candles. If you purchase cheap or flimsy fragrances, your fragrance will not last very long.
