Fresh Scents for Summer 2015

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.

Floral 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.

Fruity Candles

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.

Lemon grass is not instantly thought of as a summer scent. However it does have a few properties that make it a good candidate. It does have a mild citrus aroma which may prove more beneficial to those with a sensitive nose, for the stronger scented candles. It also has properties that will help keep those annoying flies away whilst you are dozing on the porch on a summers evening. It may even entice you to go and make a cup of lemongrass tea to help you relax even more.

Simon and Garfunkel sang about Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme, and going to summer fairs.The unmistakable aromas of herbs and spices from Provence bring to mind eating at a long table in the garden under a clear blue sky. Price’s Provence Scented Candle Lantern will let you carry on the festivities into the summer night. It also has insect repellent qualities that work effectively without the overpowering scent of citronella.

Everyone will equate different aromas with summer, possibly the more rural you’re past experiences,the stronger will be the association. Scented Candle Shop has a large selection and you will be able to find something to suit your taste, or more to the point sense of smell. Take the fresh scents of summer right into your home.
