Finding The Right Scent Online: The Candle Edition

Whether you're creating the perfect centerpiece or trying to relax at work, scented candles help create the perfect atmosphere. But with fragrances like roses, cinnamon, citrus, and pine, how do you decide which scent is right for you? This short guide to finding the right candle scent is exactly what you need to find your perfect candle today!


Start With The Theme

Candles make great gifts, centerpieces, desk decor, and more. Knowing where and when a candle will be used can make all the difference. For instance, the orange leafy color and woody scent of Autumn Magic would look great on a side table with a few fake pine cones, but might feel out of place in a blue bathroom with an ocean theme.


Know Your Audience

Burning a candle in a public setting like an office may lead to some complaints from those with more sensitive noses. In this case, opt for milder scents like vanilla, lavender, or orange. A candle like Relaxation would be a great fit for those who prefer a more subtle scent.


Pick A Mood

According to Harvard research, smell has a direct link to memory, meaning it can make or break an experience. If you’re having people over for dinner, or own a business and want to give people a good impression, burn a familiar scent like Banana Nut Bread or Cafe Mocha. These fragrances have the potential to remind someone of a pleasant memory and will help them associate those good feelings with you!


Have Fun With It

Sometimes it’s more fun to pick a scented candle for the name rather than its fragrance. Our Bite Me candle is perfect for a private office while the Cabin Fever soy candle is sure to get a few laughs at your next Halloween party.

Candles are a fun way to decorate a space and set a certain mood by helping people recall memories based on the familiar scent. They are the perfect gift for any occasion and with the wide variety of fragrances and candle shapes, there is something for everyone. Brighten your day by shopping Walkerville Candles now!
