Jan 19th 2021

From invigorating floral scents to the warmth of their flickering flames,  luxury scented candles not only add visual appeal where needed, but also have the ability to touch on our other senses as well. They are simply a must-have if you want to add beauty and atmosphere to your home.

Creating a certain look and feel in your home can be both exciting and frustrating. Selecting each piece of quality furniture while making sure everything matches, picking out complementary decor items, arranging everything so that your home feels welcoming and warm, ensuring that there is ample light and enough space to move around. Even with plenty of inspiration, however, it can be a daunting task to create the right kind of ambiance throughout your home, which is why the addition of high-quality candles can be so beneficial.

Handcrafted scented candles can add the perfect element of luxury and romance to your home. Whether you are looking for a way to set a certain mood or add that last bit of visual stimulation to a room, the right candles can make this an easy job. We’ve put together the following guide to help detail the benefits of using scented candles in your home, and how easy it is to utilize them in order to create a desired atmosphere.

What Makes Perfume Candles so Effective?

What is it about luxury scented candles that make them so perfect for directing the atmosphere of a certain space? It all starts with the ingredients that are used to craft them. The quality of a scented candle can vary significantly, depending on the brand and the ingredients that are used. This is important to note if you are thinking of using candles throughout your home.

Higher-quality candles will last longer and have richer, more complex scents than cheaper varieties. The fragrances used in luxury candles are much less likely to irritate the senses or cause any allergic reactions, as well. Care is taken to use only wholesome ingredients like coconut wax and pure essential oils, rather than artificial fragrances or parabens.

Essential oil blends are extremely effective at creating luxurious aromas that while striking, aren’t overpowering. In fact, because they are derived from natural sources, these fragrances are mildly stimulating and refreshing, rather than overtly pungent. When using candles, you want to avoid overpowering scents that can detract from the atmosphere you want to create, for multiple reasons. One, such fragrances are unnatural and simply don’t lend themselves well to crafting a welcoming space in your home. The second main reason why you want to avoid artificial fragrances like this is that they can be irritating for many people. Cheap perfumes created from chemicals can trigger a wide range of reactions and allergies, so it’s best to avoid using them whenever possible, especially in candles.

Another element you want to take note of when it comes to luxury-quality candles is the presentation. Not all candles work well as decor items, so if you are planning on using them for this purpose, make sure the ones you select have the right artistic elements you are looking for.

Using Your Luxury Scented Candles Throughout Your Home

Some decor items can be cumbersome or awkward to add in certain places in your home. From large pottery pieces to antique mirrors, it can be difficult at times to work such items into spaces that need an improvement, whether it’s due to their size, or expected convention.

Luxury scented candles can be used just about anywhere in your home, however. Candles are extremely versatile when it comes to their size and where you can place them. From countertops to coffee tables, bookshelves to sideboards, candles are easy to incorporate into just about any furniture arrangement or room design. This makes them ideal for setting a certain tone or atmosphere without having to alter other aspects of the room that much.

Take your living room for instance. With the right high-quality perfume candles, it would be simple to boost the charm and visual appeal of the room with only a few minute changes. You could simply add a lovely candle to the center of your vintage-style coffee table, or include matching candles on each of your side tables, for a harmonious yet subtle look.

For your dining room, you could try adding a few of these candles to your cabinet or sideboard, depending on which space needs a visual enhancement. If your dining room is on the cozier side and only features a table and chairs, you could even place one of these quality candles in the center of your antique dining room table. If need be you could relocate it to the kitchen if you’re short on space during a meal.

The bedroom is another place in your home where these high-quality candles stand out. You could place matching candles on each vintage nightstand, or set aside some room on your dresser or vanity table for one. If you have been trying to create the perfect French-style bedroom, adding an aromatic luxury candle might be just the solution you need.

These candles also work well throughout other places in the home. You can try adding them to your kitchen, bathroom, home office, or even the foyer, depending on need. When arranging your candles, think about the value they bring not simply in terms of visuals but with their other functional qualities as well. The foyer, for instance, can be an expert way to make use of a candle’s powerful qualities. As soon as one of your guests walks through the door, they will be wrapped in the inviting scent of your candle, and will feel welcomed by the flame as well.

The beautiful organic and energetic nature of candles makes them particularly useful for making spaces feel more lived in and charming. Whether it’s the warm glow of the candlelight or familiar scents such as roses or sandalwood, high-quality perfume candles can absolutely transport you and help a space feel significantly more luxurious than it would otherwise.

Creating an Emotional and Atmospheric Setting With Scented Candles

Since candles possess such powerful qualities, it is easy to generate a specific atmosphere with them or create an emotional sensation or connection. As decor pieces, they certainly stand out for their versatility and subtle beauty, but the primary function of a scented candle is, after all, to release its aroma throughout your home in order to create a certain mood or sensation.

Knowing how to place your candles throughout your home is only part of getting the most out of them however. Certain fragrances complement certain home styles better than others, and are better suited for creating particular moods and feelings. Knowing which scents to take advantage of is important if you want to really pull off that perfect feeling of warmth and harmony in your home. Here are just a few examples of pairing perfume candles with the right kind of decor.
