Candles come in different varieties. Some scents are artificially created, while others can be made by combining different natural ingredients. The most popular scents come from plants, fruits, and even nuts. These scents are familiar and safe for us. Those same ingredients can be combined to create new and exciting aromas.
Some of the most popular plants used for candles are lavender, rose, jasmine, and vanilla. Others like sandalwood, a class of woods that are heavy, yellow, and finely-grained. Sandalwood can retain its fragrance for decades. The oil is then extracted to create the earthy odor that we enjoy.
In addition, seeds like the cacao tree are used to create one of the most exquisite scents known to us: Chocolate. Not only can we eat this delicious delicacy, but we can also smell its bittersweet aroma. Fruits are also a great choice, one of the most popular being the orange. The orange reminds us of the rising sun's sweet taste and delightful aroma.
Candles are an open world, with new possibilities around every corner, new scents waiting to be found, and new combinations that will come along and expand on our expectations of the scents that we can add to candles.
