‘What is the best candle scent’ is a question that gives us pause when trying out new fragrance experiences in our home. Scent is such a personal experience. Let’s dig down into some ideas on what you may consider when you need some instant inspiration in selecting a new candle scent to try.
Best candle scent to invigorate
When we are looking for a little pep in our step and a fragrance that has some punchy, zesty weight to brighten up our home, citrus notes are always our best friend.
Choices such as bergamot, lemon, lime, orange and mandarin are perfect to achieve this. Often these citrus notes are balanced out with a milder fragrance pairing to avoid that cleaning product smell.
The perfect citrus-scented candle will conjure up scents of the summer.

Best candle scent for a floral home
Floral fragrances are some of the most popular on the market. If you are looking for a fresh, floral-scented home, then the notes we look for need to include those that are light and infuse the air with a delicate touch. Our goal is to be able to close our eyes and journey to a beautiful British garden in bloom.
For this consider, rose, jasmine and peony.

Best candle scent to relax and soothe
When the sunsets and we settle down to rest on an evening, a fragrance that delivers a calming and soothing experience is a must.

A fragrance with notes of lavender, rosemary and eucalyptus are go-to options to ensure relaxation.

For those that love the outdoors, we need to look at fragrances that a create a natural sensation. The air, the sea and the crispness of the great outdoors should wash over us.
