How to Choose the Best Candle Scent
The finishing touch to any room is a pleasing waft of scent. This can be created using scented candles, fragrance diffusers, oil burners or reed diffusers. We will talk through the things you should consider when selecting the right scented candle for your space and give you a tempting look at some of the most exclusive candles on the market.
Consider the reasons for adding scent
There can be many reasons to choose to add scent to a space. Scent can be used to create a mood, which is as subtle yet evocative as playing with any other sense. The Culti collection of house-blend fragranced candles hailing directly from Milan is a feast for the olfactory senses. Whether you want to lift your mood, relax and rejuvenate, or set the scene for romance, Culti has a scented candle for you.
It can also be used to mask other, less desirable odors, such as from pets. Scent can also repel insects such as mosquitos and citronella is known for its deterrent properties. To both mask less pleasant odors and to keep your space mosquito-free, you should choose the master scent producers of Grasse, France. Their tropical citronella candle will keep your space smelling as clean and purified as a spa and keep annoying pests at bay.
Where will your candle be located?
When considering the type of candle to complement your home, you should carefully consider the space you would like to add fragrance to. The size of the candle, the selected fragrance, and the receptacle will also play a role in narrowing down your choice. Some scents are invigorating such as rosemary, so are best kept away from sleeping quarters, whereas some such as lavender lull you to slumber, so would be a disaster for the office.
Scent does not have to be in candle form either. Diffusers and sprays can also provide you with the ambient aromatic mood you seek with no risk of fire or smoke. Culti’s collection includes reed diffusers and refills that are an eco-friendly and safe way to scent your home, and are perfect if you have small children or pets.
Perfume has been prized since the beginning of civilization and yet it’s often something which is overlooked when creating ambience and mood at home. Just as you have preferences for the scent you wear on your skin, so you will find you have preferences in your home too.
Perfumes can generally be divided into musks, florals, woody, and spicy scents with light, fresh or strong tones. Many perfumes are a blend of several different kinds of aromas, with top, middle, and base notes to give the final tantalizing scent. Think of musk and jasmine or bergamot and rose as classic combinations of scent.
Men are often drawn towards citrus and woody scents such as cedar and ladies often enjoy heady flower-based perfumed candles. But consider too, the space which you will be fragrancing and what would work in there.
Complement your decor
The final thing to consider is to complement your existing home décor. Size, color, and texture of the candle holder can make or break the look. A large candle is a statement piece, whereas a collection of small Culti candles dotted about may give a warm cozy feel. Smoked glass is a very stylish material for the candle holder, but would something more electric and vibrant such as Baobab’s vivid colorways suit your décor better?
