Which candles smell best and why?

Scented candles have enjoyed enduring popularity for years. They are used both to create a mood and for relaxation, meditation or even to enhance well-being. However, choosing the right candle can be a challenge, especially given the huge variety of fragrances available on the market. In this article, we will look at which candles smell best and why.

What makes a candle smell good?

Before going into specific recommendations, it is worth understanding what makes a scented candle good. Several key factors affect the quality of a candle's fragrance:

  1. Quality of waxes and oils: The best scented candles are made of high-quality waxes (e.g. soy wax, canola wax, beeswax) and pure, natural fragrance or essential oils.
  2. Oil concentration: Higher concentration of fragrance oils in the candle provides a more intense and longer lasting fragrance.
  3. Smoking properties: A well-made candle will burn evenly and cleanly, which is crucial for the even release of fragrance.
  4. Wick design: Wicks made of cotton or wood often provide better burning and even distribution of fragrance.
  5. Number of wicks: Candles with multiple wicks quickly dissolve the wax, thus providing faster diffusion of the fragrance.
