If many people prefer to give a scented candle as a gift it is because it plays the role of a wonderful decorative object diffusing a deliciously pleasant scent. Choosing a scented candle, however, is not simple since it involves finding a product that gives off a long-term scent that is pleasing. It is all the more pleasant to find a candle whose scent suits the season during which it is lit. We give you all our tips so that you can find the ideal scented candle depending on the time of year in question.
General recommendations to consider when purchasing the candle
To ensure optimal use of your scented candle, you must take into account a few essential recommendations. First of all, so that the scented candle can diffuse its fragrance over the long term, we advise you to ensure that the perfume has been mixed evenly with the wax. If this is not the case and it has been deposited on the surface, the perfume will disappear very quickly following the gradual combustion. Be aware that affordable candles use this process very frequently. In this case, you will only be able to enjoy the fragrance at the start of combustion and not in the long term. Furthermore, we strongly advise you to invest in a 100% vegetable wax candle such as soy wax . Also make sure that the wicks are made only of pure cotton and do not contain paraffin. Likewise, we recommend that you consult the composition of the product to ensure that the perfume is made from natural products. Be aware that artificial perfumes can cause headaches.

Woody scents are just as suitable for these seasons with fragrances such as Ambre Intense , Patchouli and Cinnamon Orange . Fresher scents such as Green Tea or the Jardin d'Eden fragrance will take you on a journey thanks to their sweet scent.
Burn your scented candles sparingly
Lighting several candles simultaneously will not make its use more effective. In addition, remember to regularly ventilate the different rooms of your home in order to optimize the diffusion capacity of your scented candle.
