Finding your favourite scents 🕯
Finding your favourite scent isn't something that may come instantly. For some it may take months or years to figure out and truly find a scent that you really like. Let us share a little scent guide to help you with choosing your next scent for when you go candle or diffuser shopping!
We referenced this chart from Perfume Direct to distinguish the different scents!
There are 4 key fragrance notes — Fresh, Floral, Oriental & Woody.
As the name suggests, fresh fragrances usually smell.. fresh :P To be specific they are usually more refreshing, zesty and citrusy. Think fruits like lemon, lime or even mandarin orange. Some fresh fragrances also contain herbs and leafy scents to boost the crispness it provides.
Here's one of our fresh-scented candles available at Ana Hana, the Apothecary Candle in Lavender Neroli 🕯
One of the more popular scents amongst many is the floral fragrance. Almost any flower's scent falls into this category including jasmine, geranium and honeysuckle. Floral scents be anything from a light to intense scent depending on the flower used.
Here's our Kiki Botanical Aromatherapy Scent Diffuser that comes in a floral scent aptly named Fruity Floral 🕯
Oriental fragrances tend to be more warm and sweet. They feel very rich and luxurious, often coming in stronger notes like vanilla, cinnamon and musk.
At Ana Hana we have the Handpoured Soywax Vanilla Bean Candle, perfect for those who prefer an oriental scent.
Last but not least we have the woody fragrances which also falls under the warm scents category. Velvety, smokey and leathery, wood-based scents like sandalwood or cedarwood make a great choice for lighting up in the evening.
For those who wish to indulge in a woody, smokey scent we have our Hand Poured Scented Candle in Eucalyptus Greenwood here.
