Scented candles provide an excellent way to fill the home with fragrance and colour, but it is possible to harness their power to achieve far more than merely providing a pleasant smell to camouflage unpleasant odours!
A scent – or a combination of scents – can have a powerful effect on individuals, evoking a range of emotions. What can remind us of a memory more efficiently than a fragrance? In combination with other sensory factors such as subtle lighting, scented candles can help to create the perfect mood for any occasion.
Colours and aromas should work together to provide the correct balance; users should ideally know the meaning of the colour used and the emotion that the candle’s perfume will trigger.
More than providing a transient sense of peace and well-being that lasts only until the wick burns out, scented candles can promote a more lasting sensation of good health and well-being. A precise combination of the right fragrance and the correct colour should result in an enduring mood of peace and tranquility.
