Scented Candles: How to choose a fragrance?

Hello candle lovers and welcome to Vulgaire, where the art of olfactory creation comes to life in each candle. We know that choosing the perfect fragrance can sometimes be a challenge, but that's where we come in. Make yourself comfortable, grab a candle (or two), and let's explore the captivating world of perfume together.

1. Know yourself

Before diving into the infinite world of fragrances, let's take a moment to get to know ourselves. What are your personal tastes? Do you like light floral aromas, sweet and gourmand notes, or do you prefer something more woody and masculine? Understanding your personal preferences is the first step to finding the fragrance that will resonate with you.

2. Consider the opportunity

Candles are not just sources of light and scent; they are also atmosphere creators. Consider the occasion for which you want to use the candle. For a romantic evening, a soft floral fragrance could be ideal. For an evening with friends, perhaps opt for something fruity and energizing. For a moment of relaxation, woody and soothing notes could be perfect.

3. Seasons and scents

The seasons play an essential role in choosing a fragrance. In summer, favor light and fresh aromas like mint or lemon. In fall, immerse yourself in richer, spicy scents like cinnamon and vanilla. In winter, opt for warm and comforting notes like cedar and musk. In spring, let yourself be carried away by delicate floral aromas.

4. Explore categories

Fragrances are often grouped into categories such as floral, fruity, woody, gourmand, spicy, etc. Explore these categories to narrow down your choices. If you love the smell of roses, immerse yourself in the world of floral fragrances. If you have a weakness for sweet scents, gourmet fragrances could be what you're looking for.

5. Consider the emotional state

Perfumes have the power to stimulate our emotions. If you're looking to unwind after a stressful day, notes of lavender or chamomile could be calming. If you need a boost of energy, lemony or minty scents could be invigorating.

6. Beware of trends

Trends can be alluring, but the key is to choose something that speaks to you personally. Don't feel like you have to follow the crowd. Opt for a fragrance that evokes memories, emotions, that transports you to a special place.

7. Candle season
