Candles are the perfect way to bring a touch of luxury to your home… and what could be more luxurious than a beautifully scented candle? So if you’ve decided that you’d like to purchase a candle for a lover of all things floral – whether that be for you or as a gift – there are a few key factors to keep in mind.
If a floral scent is the one for you, then look for candles with rose, bluebell, tuberose, or peony scents. These heady flowers are known for their intoxicating aromas, and their scents can provide a much-needed boost of happiness and sunshine, on even the gloomiest of days. At Calon we have a plethora of floral-scented candles and wax melts to tickle your fancy.
Rose: Rose candles are particularly popular as the fragrance is evocative of old-fashioned glamour and let’s be honest, there’s nothing quite like the smell of roses to bring a touch of elegance to your home. And while fresh roses are always lovely, they can be expensive – and they don’t last very long. Fortunately, there’s a great alternative: rose-scented candles and wax melts which can fill your room with the seductive aroma of freshly-cut roses, which – unlike real flowers – will last much longer. Whether you choose a subtle hint of rose or a stronger, more aromatic scent, a good quality rose scented candle can quickly transform your living space.
If rose-fragranced candles are your go-to, then we have two Calon best-sellers to choose between.
First up is our Roses candle. This fragrance is reminiscent of a freshly picked bouquet of roses in full bloom with nuances of geranium and violet, all wrapped in a gentle woody base. It is also available as wax melts with fifteen heart-shaped wax melts which will scent you home for hours.
Incidentally, our “With Love” bilingual occasion candle is also scented in our Roses fragrance and makes a great gift as it comes with the wording With Love and the Welsh translation Gyda Chariad on opposite sides of the candle glass as well as the outer packaging.
Or how about our Pink Pepper & Rose fragrance which is available in our amber glasses and forms part of our Summer Collection. Soft and spicy, this blooming bouquet opens with rich fruity notes of blackcurrant and damson plum, that sink into a sumptuous heart of delicate petals. Spiced tones of carnation, rose and lily sit upon an indulgent cushion of warming amber and smooth woody nuances of creamy sandalwood and cedar.
When shopping for rose candles, look for ones made with essential oils or natural ingredients. These will provide a longer-lasting fragrance and be gentler on your skin. You should also consider the size of the candle and the burn time. A large candle may last longer, but it may also be too strong for small rooms. A smaller candle may not last as long, but it can be a great way to enjoy a subtle hint of rose fragrance. Whatever your preference, there’s sure to be a rose candle that’s perfect for you.
Peony & Oud: There’s nothing like the warm, inviting scent of a peony candle to fill your home with a sense of comfort and luxury. And when combined with the rich, earthy aroma of oud, the result is truly intoxicating.
Peony candles are made with natural essential oils that are extracted from the petals of the flower. This gives them a delicate, yet irresistible fragrance that is both floral and sweet. Oud candles, on the other hand, are made with a type of resin that is derived from agarwood trees. This gives them a strong, woodsy scent that is both mysterious and alluring. When burned together, these two candles create an exotic and tantalizing aroma that is sure to please everyone who enters your home.
If you prefer we offer a Peony & Blush Suede candle for a tantaslising alternative. It forms part of our Spring collection.
Bluebell: There’s something about bluebell candles that just makes them perfect for Spring. Maybe it’s their delicate floral scent, or the soft blue color that reminds us of clear skies and lengthening days. Whatever the reason, our Bluebell candles and wax melts are sure to add a floral springtime vibes to any home.
To get the very best experience from our range of candles and melts, we use a natural wax and work hard to ensure the candles have a clean burn with a steady flame, minimising smoking and sooting. This will help to prevent soot buildup and ensure that your flower-scented haven stays fresh and inviting for hours on end.
