What comes to mind when you think of a nice summer’s day? Could it be, the warm Sun and clear blue skies, green grass, a gentle breeze, and the scents of summer, so fresh and invigorating. You can finally open your windows after the rigours of winter, but what about the evenings, sitting indoors or if you are lucky on the veranda. Why not accentuate the aromas with scented atmospheric candles.
What about the wonderful Vincent Van Gogh inspired sunflower yellow candle, by St Eval in Cornwall. It will send tones of amber and linden blossom drifting into the room,combined with natural mimosa, to create a perfect balance of natural summer fragrances.
Linden produces a divine aroma, bees flock to the flowers, and it often appears in poetry as a tree to sit under on a summer’s day. The scent of mimosa may inspire you to sip a refreshing summer drink of chilled citrus fruit and champagne, aptly named after it.
The aromas of natural fruit always remind us of the growing season. Fresh and invigorating the Blueberry pillar candle by Bolsius is aromatic and fruity without being overbearing. The blueberry is noted for being one of the world’s healthiest fruits with its antioxidant properties.There is also an exotic mango candle that is unique in flavour and fragrance. Your guests will be wondering where you have hidden the summer fruit bowl.
Honeydew Melon fragrance candles,smell like fresh cut melon,on a hot day, one of summers supreme pleasures. Sweet and deliciously juicy! Honeydew will remind those who sense it, of summer salads with melon and cantaloupe, and healthy breakfasts with mixed fruits and cereal.
