Handmade Scented Candles

By admin  

Do you make your own candles or buy them? Do you collect them and keep them or give away as gifts? Do you frequent thrift shops looking for special jars and glasses for your hand made candles, or candle stands for your growing collection? Do you burn a scented candle every night because it smells good, looks good, and is comforting?

If so, then you probably know a lot about scented candles. It seems like they have been increasing in popularity, and I have noticed there are candle scent trends and fads, haven’t you? One thing is for sure, the scented candles of today are much stronger in aroma than in previous years. Some of the higher quality candles emit their pleasant aroma before the cellophane has even been unwrapped from the candle.

For a long time there were some standard candle scents being sold everywhere. Remember those days when all you could buy was strawberry, rose, pine, or mint? There has been a virtual candle scent explosion and I defy anyone to come up with a scent that is not already being used in a commercially available candle.

Popular today are dessert scents in candles. In this line you will find candles which emit such delightful scents as cheesecake, cookies, chocolate, mint chocolate, white chocolate, lemon mirangue pie, chocolate chip cookie, and the list goes on and on.

Of special interest are the multi-layer jar candles. My personal favorite is called ‘Death by Chocolate’ and has three scented layers! The top layer is chocolate kiss, the middle layer is hot cocoa, and the bottom layer is hot fudge icing. It’s like getting three candles in one!

Another popular line of candle scents these days is based on favorite coffee drinks. Besides plain coffee scented candles, you can buy or make candles which emit the familiar scents of your favorite boutique cafe blend. Love your custom cappuccino the barista at your coffee hangout has created for you? I’ll just bet if you search online you will be able to buy a candle to match that scent.
