5 Things to Consider When Choosing the Right Candle Fragrance for Your Home
Soy candles have become increasingly popular over the years due to their eco-friendliness, clean burning, and long-lasting properties. One of the many benefits of soy candles is that they can be infused with a wide variety of fragrances, giving you endless options to help create the perfect atmosphere. But, with so many fragrances available, it can be a challenge to choose the best ones for your home. These simple tips will help you sift through all of the options and choose the perfect fit for you.
1) Consider the Mood You Want to Create
The first step in choosing the best fragrance for your home is to consider the mood you want to create. Do you want a warm and cozy atmosphere or a fresh and invigorating one? Different fragrances can help create different moods, so it’s essential to choose a scent that matches the ambiance you want to create.
For example, if you’re looking for a warm and cozy scent, look for fragrances that include spicy notes. Fragrances with notes of amber, vanilla, cinnamon, and sandalwood like our Egyptian Amber or Relax – Vanilla & Lavender are all good choices. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a fresh and invigorating scent, you might want to choose fragrances that contain notes of citrus, mint, or eucalyptus like our Zest – Citron & Mandarin and Revitalize – Peppermint & Eucalyptus (you can find all of the fragrances HERE).
2) Test the Fragrances
Before you commit to a specific fragrance, you may want to sample it first. Many candle makers offer sample packs or mini versions that you can try out before you buy a bigger version. This is a great way to determine if you like a scent before committing to a larger purchase.
3) Choose Candles that Use High-Quality Fragrances
The quality of candles can vary greatly. Some companies use lower-grade fragrance oil, or if they do use a high-grade, may try to save money by skimping on the amount they add. It’s essential to choose a high-quality candle company that will deliver the desired scent that will last for a long time. Look for candles that are made from natural ingredients and are free of harsh chemicals and synthetic fragrances. Read reviews or ask for recommendations from friends and family.
4) Consider the Season
Another factor to consider when choosing a fragrance is the season. Different scents are more appropriate for different seasons. Choose a fragrance that matches the time of year.
For example, during the winter months, you might want to choose fragrance oils that contain notes of pine, cranberry, or peppermint like Cranberry Woods or White Birch. In the spring and summer months, you might want to opt for fragrance oils that contain notes of lavender, lemon, or grapefruit like Uplift – Lemon Verbena or Serenity – Grapefruit & Mangosteen.

5) Think About Your Personal Preferences
Ultimately, the best fragrance for your home comes down to what you like. After all, your home should reflect your personal style and tastes. Look for a company that offers several different fragrance options to ensure finding something that’s just right for you.
Keep in mind that you also need to consider the preferences of others in the house. If someone in your home has allergies or sensitivities to certain scents, it’s important to avoid those fragrances.
Remember to think about the mood you want to create, sample different fragrances if possible, find a company that uses high-quality products, and consider the season to find the perfect for you and your home.
