Scented Candles Set The Scene

Oct 23rd 2012 at 1:58 AM

It’s no surprise that scented candles are such an integral part of a romantic rendezvous. They set the scene with their flickering light, lending a definite feeling of anticipation to the darkness. Millions of proposals have been completed in their presence, with those that are scented bringing an extra touch to the memory. If you are planning a proposal, anniversary dinner, intimate birthday event or any other moment that demands careful thought, be sure to consider including scented candles. Some of the best choices will remind your beloved of the event every time he or she smells that certain scent. Be sure to look for candles that include essential oils in their formula, as these oils will make for a clean and crisp aroma.

Scented candles that are great choices to set the scene for an event your love done will not soon forget include:

• Cinnamon scented candles – Scientific research has shown that cinnamon is a tantalizing smell that can inspire feelings of romance. Other candles that may elicit the same response include cinnamon bun candles, which mix that cinnamon smell with notes of French vanilla. Cinnamon candles also add a homey feeling to a space.

• Rose scented candles – Many romantic rendezvous include red roses as part of the décor. Step up the rose theme by lighting some rose scented candles, and you’ll appeal to two senses: sight and smell. The more senses you engage, the more a person will have as a reminder of the moment. Every time he or she sees or smells a rose, the romance will return. It’s a classic move, and it’s one that will never go out of style.

• Lavender scented candles – Lavender has long been a favorite candle aroma due to its ability to soothe. The smell of lavender means instant relaxation, making it a popular scent.

• Hybrid scents – Thanks to the creativity of candle makers worldwide, you have scents to choose from that elicit romanticism in their names alone. Some possibilities are Moonlight Mist or Romantic Dinner. Don’t trust that the candle is perfect for you just by taking the name seriously. Smell the candle deeply and decide whether or not it will set the tone for your event. Some of the most intriguing scents mix floral notes with spicy ones, creating an interesting combination that you can only find by lighting that certain candle. This adds a feeling of specialness to an event and makes people ask “What smells so good?” To set an event apart from all others, these hybrid scents cannot be beat.

You may want to consider a clean burning soy wax candle. Though not scented naturally, soy wax has a clean burn. Soot will not interfere with the overall scent. This is definitely something that can happen with traditional candles, but soy candles allow the scent to truly be realized in its most natural state. Set the scene with scented candles, and your memories will return each time you catch a whiff of the smell.
