Much like twinkle lights and incense, scented candles have a unique way of warming up a living room (or an entire apartment) that feels comforting no matter what time of year it is. Sure, some folks tend to think of candles as special treats during the holiday season, but who’s to say you can’t indulge in a beautiful one come March, April, May… and beyond? The coziness factor aside, candles are an instant way to make your space smell amazing and set a vibe.
And these days, the options out there are abundant. Perfumers are playing with all kinds of scent combinations and accords that go far beyond the usual. We’re talking lake water, fresh air — even the smell of a bubble bath can be captured with the right mix of ingredients. It’s a bonafide fragrance revolution, and you can bring it right into your home or, if you’re the gifting type, someone else’s.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re a fan of fresh and herbaceous scents, fruity and floral fragrances, or musky smells — the fact is, there are so many stellar options on the market that you’re bound to find several that fit your fancy. And let’s say you do find yourself gravitating to a certain genre of scents (I’m looking at you, gourmand girlies). If you’re willing to go out of your comfort zone, we promise you’ll make a discovery that has you thinking, “now, why did I ever count out those types of fragrances?”
