How to Choose the Perfect Candle for Every Mood
Scent is a powerful tool that can effect our mood and make us feel nostalgic, uplifted, mellow or relaxed. A good fragrance won't only smell beautiful but it will make you feel a certain way, potentially evoke memories, and take you on an olfactory journey to a far off destination.
A delightfully scented home is something that rarely goes unnoticed by guests. Candles are one of the easiest and most affordable ways to make your home smell divine and when designed beautifully they make for a chic home decor piece that creates a heartwarming glow.
Before you purchase a candle, it's important to consider the ambience you want to create. Whether you want to promote relaxation and wind yourself down before bed or you want to feel recharged while you work, our exclusive hand-poured Australian-made candles will transform your space into a lovely oasis whether they’re burning or simply sitting still.
How to Choose the Perfect Scented Candle for Every Mood
1. For relaxing, choose Peace & Quiet
We all need a bit of R&R time. Whether you unwind by taking a warm bath or you like to read a book in bed, adding a relaxing fragrance to the mix is always helpful.
For down time we recommend our Peace & Quiet candle. It boasts an aromatic lavender scent that instantly envelops your space and drowns out distractions.
Lavender is renowned for its ability to create a relaxing atmosphere and when paired with a soothing bouquet of chamomile, fir needle, and cedarwood, it's the perfect scent to help you wind down before bed, be it placed on your bedside table or in your bathroom. Even if you can't make time for yourself, sometimes lighting a candle is the next best thing.
2. To feel uplifted, choose Spiced Pear & Oak
Sometimes we need an extra boost to keep us energised and focused when working or to help us wake up in the morning, and scent is known to help. Enter our alluring and evocative Spiced Pear & Oak candle.
This sophisticated fragrance gets its spice signature from the aromatic clove bud. It's an uplifting bouquet of smoked oak, sandalwood and—as its name suggests—spiced pear, topped with a zesty blend of grapefruit and lemon peel. Citrus in particular is known to be an awakening scent and will help get your day off to a good start. We recommend placing this one on your bedside table or your work desk.
3. For cosy vibes, choose Fireside
Creating a comfortable, cocooning vibe in your home on rainy days or in the evenings is one of life's simple pleasures. Whether you're having a night in wrapped in a blanket and watching movies on the sofa or you're having a romantic dinner for two, our sultry Fireside candle with notes of oud, cedar leaf and star jasmine is sure to set the cosy mood.
Rich and intoxicating, this candle smells like distilled wood smoke effused from a campfire. It's also the perfect Christmas scent to set the festive mood.
4. To recharge, choose The Ocean Breeze
Australians are known for their love of the outdoors, particularly the beach, and The Ocean Breeze candle is sure to invigorate you and evoke images of the coast.
This crisp fragrance is the breath of fresh air your home needs and is the perfect fragrance for those who love a dip in the ocean. An infusion of earthy sandalwood and enlivening sea salt, it's a clean, mineral scent that leaves you both relaxed and recharged and feeling as if you've just stepped straight onto the shore.
5. For a clean and refreshed feeling, choose Fresh Linen
Maybe we're a bit biased, but is there anything more comforting and relaxing than the scent of fresh linen? We all love the smell of clean laundry because it makes us feel clean and refreshed. And that's exactly what we've tried to channel with out Fresh Linen scent.
Crisp, breezy, and a little nostalgic, this light scent is a fresh yet layered bouquet of clary sage, white musk, and cedarwood—or, crisp, line-dried sheets. Finally, your room can smell as good as pure linen bedding feels. This is a wonderful scent to burn during the daytime.
6. For a tranquil ambience, choose Cottage Garden
Life is busy and many of us are in need of moments of respite from city life. And while we might not be able to hop on over to a calming country location to unwind, bringing some of those beautiful elements to our homes is achievable.
Our delicate Cottage Garden candle will Invoke the tranquility of a quaint cottage with its floral-forward freesia scent that's sure to paint a fragrant picture of a field in full bloom. Notes of citrusy bergamot, sweet hyacinth, and red rose are the perfect companions for whiling away an afternoon over an alfresco lunch or a good book.
