It can be tricky, especially when scent is such a individual preference.
However, when you can't be in person- think about the space, scent and purpose. Also, reading online reviews is always recommended!
What is the room size?
Larger living spaces can support a stronger fragrance where a smaller room may be too overwhelming.
Also, the size of the candle also matters in relation to room size! A smaller candle means better suited for a smaller room.
Match the scent to the space! The following is general scent guidance:
Kitchen/Bathroom: Clean and bright like limes or ginger
Living Room: Warm, subtle and soft like sandalwood or jasmine
Office/Craft Room: Happy and inviting aromas like amber or citrus
What are you doing in the room? Are you dining, relaxing, hosting?
Relaxing scents like sandalwood or musk can be perfect for any stay home evening while bright notes like pine and eucalyptus can enliven a more social event.
