I’ve just moved into a new place and am really keen for a new room scent. Something that gives off a light perfume all the time. Whether that be a candle that smells strong enough that even when not burning you can still smell a light waft of it or perhaps diffuser sticks etc. I prefer more natural/botanical scents as opposed too anything too sweet and sickly and not really into incense either. Wondering what your suggestions and favourites are?
Definitely Glasshouse candles. LOVE love love them. I’ve never had a candle that matches their scent when burning, and even when it’s just sitting in the room before ever using it gives off a gorgeous scent. Tahaa (vanilla caramel) is my fave. I recently bought several candles from ‘Only Summer’ who I followed on facebook and was so excited when they arrived and the smell was so delicious. However although they smelt great just sitting in each room, when I burned them I couldn’t smell them at all! They weren’t cheap so I was really disappointed, I got in touch and they said they’d send a replacement to see if it was just bad luck. That was before xmas, I’ve had to get in touch several times to see what’s happening with the replacement and apparently there was a death in the family before xmas… been in touch again and they say it’s coming but it’s now been months since first contact and nothing so they’re a company I’d avoid.
I also bought an electric diffuser from Woolworths when it was on special. Bought the wax melts at the same time (from same company) but the smell wasn’t appealing. I’ve since bought wax melts from a seller I found on ebay and love the diffuser! I’ve bought from several stores but Sassy Soy are my face, and they’ve apparently just created stronger scents. They have vanilla caramel (obvious it’s one of my faves), there’s a choc brownie that I can’t get enough… they have so so many yummy scents.
I’m pretty picky with scents as I’m super sensitive to smells but these always make me happy when burning/melting in the home. I made sure I had some as soon as we moved into our new home.
Oh I do love a good soy/wax melt @kyliecavanough! They can just get a bit messy to clean up but I used to work at a pilates studio which used one of those electric burners with the melts on it and it was gorgeous!
I love Glasshouse but sometimes find the smell can be a bit strong for me. Like if Aesop did a candle (do they do candles?!) that kind of botanical/essential oils smell would be my cup of tea.
Oh - Moogoo now do a candle too! Haven’t tried it yet but definitely need to.
Hmmm, since you prefer more natural/botanical scents, have you considered making your own diffuser sticks using essential oils? It’s pretty easy! I only use essential oils for everything (fragrance aversion). Eucalyptus and Spearmint give off a heavenly aroma (I use them at home); however, the scent doesn’t last as long as the fragrance oil (which you can also use if you prefer). You could also use an “Essential Oil Diffuser” for this.
