If you’re struggling to choose the perfect candle scent for a gift, how about deciding based on personality types? Here are our top recommendations, and don’t forget our candles can all be purchased with or without a lid, with the option of adding a bespoke and personal message which can be engraved into the bamboo. So here you go…
If there’s a nature-lover in your life, our stunning collection of Woody fragrances are a must. These scents are known for their earthy and warm undertones, usually created by natural ingredients such as sandalwood, oak, and pine – perfect for those adventurous personalities.
Perhaps the ultimate woody scent – perfect for this time of year, is our Nadolig Christmas candle in our brand new emerald glass jars. This fragrance is to us, the epitome of Christmas with top notes of pine, eucalyptus with crisp fresh green notes sitting on a pine heart, with base notes of pine, cedar wood, sandalwood, guaiacwood and musk. If you’ve got a faux Christmas tree this Christmas but want the smell of the real thing, then this is for you. Makes a perfect Christmas gift with the addition of a bamboo lid with a personalised message too.
For a stronger option, our oriental scents are perfect for those who want to make a statement and stand out. These scentshave a warm undertone, created by a harmonious blend of ingredients. Our Ginger Lily and Ylang Ylang candle made using 100% natural essential oils has top notes of orange, bergamot, aniseed and cypress, with middle notes of ylang ylang and tagette, and an earthy base of cedar wood and patchouli. This is floral-oriental at its best.
A popular feminine selection is our floral scents, often chosen by romantics or individuals who love sweet scents. These scents are perfect for setting the mood for a festive date night. We have four bestselling floral scented candles: Roses, Bluebell and Peony & Oud, and our Lavender aromatherapy candle “Rest” is made with 100% natural essential oils and is perfect to wind down at the end of a busy day.
Fruity or Citrus
Our Fruity or Citrus scents are a go-to for those who are constantly on the go and bubbling with energy. These scents have spicy and citrus undertones and will definitely invigorate your senses. Ideal for those who are energetic and lively.
Lime, Basil & Mandarin is always popular, possibly due to the love of a certain big brand with the same fragrance name… (we love ours even more!), or why not try our Black Plum & Rhubarb candle which is a favourite with our customers that love a strong-smelling candle; or how about our Damson, Rose & Patchouli candle with its gorgeous fruity scent and vivid purple label?
