Scented candles have the incredible ability to transform the atmosphere of our homes, creating a cosy and inviting ambiance that appeals to our senses. The flickering flame, coupled with the enchanting fragrance, can evoke various moods and emotions.
Whether you want to wind down after a long tiring day at work, set the perfect ambiance for a romantic evening with your special one, or create a festive atmosphere for a special occasion, choosing the right scented candle is essential. In this guide, our home interior décor experts from Lulu Home will explore the key considerations to help you select the best scented candle for your home in Singapore. Bonus: We’ll also be throwing in some little-known tips on how to maintain your candles in tip-top condition. So read on for more.
First and foremost, we would suggest that you consider the size and purpose of the room where you plan to place the scented candle.
In smaller rooms, overpowering scents can become overwhelming. So, if you are looking for a suitable scent in a small space like a study room or small bedroom, you might want to consider opting for lighter fragrances that won't overpower the space. On the other hand, larger communal areas like the living room or dining room can handle stronger scents since it diffuses out over the bigger space.
Conclusion: Assess the room’s dimensions and choose a candle that complements its size.
As we mentioned before, scented candles are the perfect way to set the scene for a particular mood or ambiance.
For your workspace, consider energizing scents like citrus or peppermint to promote focus and productivity. Or in our case, a Geranium and Wormwood scented candle, that combines the refreshing and uplifting aroma of geranium with the earthy and herbaceous notes of wormwood, a unique blend of floral and herbal elements, creating a distinctive fragrance that is ideal for a study room setting.
Hosting an adult dinner party? Choose from unique fragrances that help you set the perfect backdrop for engaging conversations, culinary delights, and memorable moments shared among friends. Our top choice? The Amber & Smoke scented candle, is a unique blend of aromatic notes from the zesty tangerine, the fresh almond, and mysterious sandalwood, culminating in a sophisticated fragrance evoking an atmosphere of warmth, elegance, and intrigue.
For a romantic setting, always opt for candles with sensual scents to create an intimate and captivating ambiance. Like our go-to choice for a romantic scent, the Black Cherry Merlot scented candle, with its enchanting blend of notes (cherry, Sakura, cedar, and merlot) creating an alluring atmosphere, perfect for a romantic evening filled with passion, intimacy, and connection.
So, depending on what kind of vibe you want to achieve in each area of your home, you can choose a different scented candle to help evoke that.
The type of wax used in a candle affects not only its burn time but also the quality of the fragrance. Two common types of wax are paraffin and soy wax.
Paraffin Wax: Paraffin candles are widely available and more affordable. However, they release soot when burned, which can contribute to indoor air pollution. If you choose paraffin candles, ensure proper ventilation.
Soy Wax: Soy candles are made from natural soybean oil, making them an eco-friendlier option. They burn cleaner, produce less soot, and have a longer burn time. Additionally, soy candles often have a stronger fragrance throw, ensuring a delightful scent throughout your space.
P.S. All Lulu Furniture scented candles are made from natural soy wax, so you know you’re picking the eco-friendlier choice!
The type of wick used in a candle can significantly impact its burn quality. When selecting a scented candle, look for those with cotton wicks. Cotton wicks burn more evenly, minimize soot production, and provide a steady flame. They also reduce the risk of smoke and excessive flickering, ensuring a clean and enjoyable burning experience.
Last but not least, let’s not forget, in addition to scent, candles also serve as decorative elements in your home.
Since they come in various colours, shapes, and sizes, it’s not hard to find one that complements your personal style and home decor. Whether you prefer classic pillars, elegant jars, or unique designs, choose candles that enhance the visual appeal of your space while providing a delightful fragrance.
To ensure the optimal performance and safety of your scented candles, make sure you follow the following tips:
Proper Storage: Not using your newly bought candle just yet? Store them away in a cool, dark, and dry place to prevent discoloration, warping, or melting.
Initial Burning: When lighting a new candle, allow it to burn for 2-3 hours or until the wax around the wick is completely melted. This establishes a "burning memory" that ensures an even burn throughout the candle's lifespan.
Candle Burn Time: For the most effective fragrance throw, and candle longevity, keep your candle burning only between 2- 4 hours at most. After 4 hours, extinguish it to trim your wick length before relighting.
Wick Maintenance: Before each use, trim the wick to approximately 5-8 mm. Trimming the wick helps the candle burn evenly, reduces the formation of black smoke, and prevents soot build-up on the candle's container.
Safety Precautions: Never leave a burning candle unattended and away from flammable items (like curtains, paper products and more). Always extinguish candles before leaving the room or going to bed to ensure the safety of your home and loved ones.
