The flickering flame of a well-placed candle is relaxing and can help create a romantic atmosphere. A whiff of a scented candle can stimulate our brain's limbic system, which is home to memory and emotions. The right fragrance can change our mood, eliminate stress and evoke emotions.
Whether you are spending Valentine's Day with a loved one or celebrating with best friends, a scented candle can help set the mood. Don't be afraid to place candles throughout the house to create that romantic vibe.
Start with a candlelit dinner in the dining room. Then proceed to a cozy spot in the living room for some after-dinner drinks and cuddles by candlelight. Next, head down the rose petal and candle-lined hallway for some relaxing time in the tub that is lined with candles. Then adjourn to your candlelit bedroom for... well, I will let you use your imagination!
Remember that candles also make great gifts for friends, co-workers, and teachers.
4 Best Candle Scents for Valentine's Day
This fragrance will never let you down! Whether you're in a relationship or not, this slow-burning candle is inspired by the sultry scent of cologne. A Night In candle blends soft floral top notes with the heady aromas of spices, herbs, and wood. It will fill your home with the smell of the perfect man. (Hot tip: this candle also makes a great gift for the man in your life!)
Roses are a symbol of love and affection, and our Rose Petals scented candles will remind you of that love long after the flowers fade. Our Rose Petals scent blends the sweet apple scent of a Briar rose with the delicate aroma of wildflowers for a beautiful reminder of a bouquet of roses.
This fragrance blends a fresh citrus tang with a sweet lavender aroma. While our all-natural lavender oil promotes calmness, lemon enhances your mood and brings on total relaxation. It's a match made in 100% pure, plant-based soy candle heaven. Floral but not overpowering, you'll want a refreshing Lemon Lavender candle in every room of your house.
Let's get bubbly! Made with 100% pure, plant-based soy, quality ingredients, and all-natural oils, our Sparkling Prosecco candle will turn every day into a special occasion. Blending sweet top notes of citrus and pear, with bottom notes of vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg, this fragrance is light and refreshing. Sold in a stemless wine glass jar, Sparkling Prosecco is part of our Cocktail Collection.
