There are many factors to consider when choosing a fragrance, but the most important thing is to go with your gut. If a certain fragrance speaks to you, trust that it has something special to offer. With that said, here are a few things to keep in mind as you select a candle fragrance that feels like you...
Scent Should Bring You Joy
First and foremost, your candle fragrance should make you happy. It should be a joy to smell, and it should fill you with happiness each time you catch a whiff. If a fragrance is bring you anything other than happiness—if it's making you anxious or nauseous, for example—then it's probably not the right one for you.
Scent Should Be Appropriate for the Season
Another thing to consider when choosing a candle fragrance is the season. Just as we change our wardrobe with the seasons, so too should we change our scent. Heavier scents such as sandalwood and patchouli are perfect for cooler months when we're spending more time indoors, while lighter scents like citrus and lavender are ideal for warmer months when we're crave something fresh and airy.
Scent Should Enhance Your Space
Finally, your candle fragrance should enhance your space—not overwhelm it. Whether you want your home to smell like a spa oasis or a aromatic garden depends entirely on personal preference. But whatever scent you choose, make sure it's not too strong. You should be able to enjoy your candle fragrance without feeling like you're suffocating in it.
