A Scented Candle Gift-Giving Guide

There's something undeniably calming and relaxing about lighting up a scented candle. When the flickering soft glow pairs with an inviting aroma, a space instantly becomes more tranquil and relaxing, which is why they are such a great gift for friends and loved ones. However, as with any refined choice, there's an art to picking the perfect jar candle.

Picking the Ideal Aroma:

A scented candle can whisk you away to a distant memory or a cherished destination, which is part of why they make such great gifts. If you know the recipient's preferences, that's a bonus. But if you're unsure, universally adored fragrances like fruity notes or the comforting aroma of vanilla are safe bets.

Understanding the Scent Throw:

The term 'scent throw' is all about how robustly a jar candle's fragrance fills a space. “Cold throw" refers to the aroma you detect when the scented candle is unlit. In contrast, "hot throw" indicates the strength of a lit candle's fragrance. Generally, you're going to want an aroma that's noticeable without overpowering. A handy tip? If you seek a standout fragrance throw, opt for scented candles with multiple wicks, as their hot throw is more potent than a single-wicked candle.

Duration Does Matter:
There's not much more frustrating in the candle world than falling in love with a fragrance only to have the candle burn out quickly. Whether you're gifting scented candles to your loved ones or treating yourself, you'll want to make sure that you select quality candles with extended burn times. Many variables go into a candle's "burn time," such as the type of wax used, the number of wicks it has, where you are burning it, and the shape of the vessel it is poured into. Because of this, most reputable producers will include an estimated burn time on their websites or on the candle's label so that you can make an educated purchase.
