Candle scents are a powerful way to create a mood or atmosphere. Whether you're looking to relax, energize, or inspire, the right candle can help you achieve your desired effect.

But how do you choose the right candle scent? It all starts with understanding the different scent notes.

Top notes are the lightest and most volatile notes, and they're the first scents you'll smell when you light a candle. Top notes typically evaporate within minutes or hours, so they're responsible for making the initial impression of the fragrance. Some common top notes include citrus, floral, and herbal scents.

Middle notes are the heart of the fragrance, and they're responsible for the overall aroma of the candle. Middle notes typically last for several hours, and they're what you'll smell most prominently when the candle is burning. Some common middle notes include spice, woods, and floral scents.

Base notes are the heaviest and most lasting notes, and they're what you'll smell at the end of the candle's burn. Base notes typically last for several hours or even days, and they're what give the candle its depth and complexity. Some common base notes include musk, amber, and vanilla.

So, how do you use scent notes to find the right candle for you? Here are a few tips:

  • Consider your personal preferences. What scents do you like and dislike
  • Think about the occasion. What are you using the candle for?
  • Do some research. Read reviews of different candles and learn about the different scent notes.
  • Experiment. Don't be afraid to try new things.
