Smell is one of the most important of the five senses when it comes to setting a mood and calming ambiance in any space, and candles are one of the best, cost-effective and easiest ways to add some aromatherapy to your dwelling. Candles are perhaps the easiest way to give your place a personalized aroma that both you and your guests will swoon over. Sure, you can opt or a fragrance diffuser or scented sprays, but while these options may smell okay, they don’t exactly feel as luxe as a scented candle wrapped in chic packaging. Many popular perfumes and colognes also come in candle form, which means you make your space smell as good as your signature scent too.
I think we all can agree that candles possess the unrivaled ability to transform the mood, fragrance, and overall feel our homes, but aside from offering us ultra-flattering sepia-toned lighting, they also make our apartments smell divine. Scented candles are also known for their mood-boosting, aromatherapeutic benefits as well. When you come from a long day, your home should feel like your personal sanctuary, not another source of stress, and candles can help tremendously in this department. Ahead, we’ve lined up a few of our favorite scented candles to stock up on.
