What Summer Smells Like: Our Picks For The Best Tropical Candle Scents
The Freeing Scents of Summer
The warm weather. The sunflowers and daisies. The abundance of greenery. There's just nothing quite like a perfect summer day. The smell of a summer breeze is unmistakable and the aroma of an amazing summer night is something that sticks with you for life. Nostalgia for summer always has us longing for years past - family vacations, secluded getaways, tropical beaches. There's just so much that summer has to offer!
Before you get too busy with all your weekend getaways, free time spent at the beach, or adventures through the verdant forest at a nature part, don't forget that summertime is a mood you can achieve at home, too! There's nothing quite like lounging next to a fragrant hibiscus flower on the shores of Hawaii... But an amazing scented candle can get close.
Here are our favorite summery scents to fill your homes with the memorable aromas of summertime, no matter what time of year it is!
Sitting on the beach, drink in hand, soaking up the summer sun... That's the feeling we wanted to bring to mind when you light up your super fresh Maui Mai Tai scented candle. We've jammed a ton of juicy fruit scents into this for a blast of iconic, citrus freshness with an underlying base of sugar, musk, and sweetness.
Our favorite time to light up a Maui Mai Tai candle is in the dead of winter when we're wishing we were anywhere but surrounded by snow. The hints of persimmon, apple, papaya and citrus will have you feeling like your house is the tropical getaway we all deserve.
Fragrance Notes Top: Persimmon, Star Apple, Citrus Middle: Calamansi, Papaya, Lemongrass Base: Sugarcane, White Musk
Ocean Breeze is one of our best selling candle scents for a reason! This iconic and simple candle releases the smell of fresh, seaside air into your home. It's reminiscent of a gentle breeze blowing off the warm ocean waves - fresh and clean with a hint of Himalayan Sea salt. You may even notice subtle hints of citrus, honeydew melon, and violets wafting through the air.
You know what they always say... Your house isn't clean until you light a candle after you're done. For that truly clean feeling and a reset of your energies, we recommend lighting up an ocean breeze candle.
If Ocean Breeze brings your mind to a day at the beach, consider Mermaid Daydream a day spent with a pod of mermaids! Mermaid Daydream smells heavenly - top notes of citrus like grapefruit, bergamot, and lemongrass are bolstered by more hearty smells of tea, rosewood, and flowers, while leaving a lasting aroma of musk and sandalwood throughout your day.
Where Ocean Breeze is a clean, fresh air scent, Mermaid Daydream is an invigorating and refreshing scent. The zesty aroma of fresh citrus is great for an office setting scent, and the unique scent blend is perfect for people who are looking for something just a little bit left-field.
Fragrance Notes: Top: Lemongrass, Bergamot, Grapefruit Middle: White Tea, Tuberose, Bois de Rose Base: Sandalwood, Musk, Tonka Bean
Get your bikinis and beach towels ready! Caribbean Dream is just that - a journey to a tropical island oasis. Envision yourself in a beachside cabin while your laundry, washed clean by the ocean, hangs up to dry in the Caribbean winds. The wind blows through the open windows... And the aroma you catch is that of this candle!
Jackpot Candles needed a crisp, clean cotton smell... So that's exactly what we did! You can expect a freshly-washed cotton smell from this candle, blended with touches of cucumber and apple for an organic feel. It's rounded out with floral undertones and fresh musks for a long-lasting scent that will have your home smelling not only clean, but tropical too!
If you've ever seen (or smelled) a hibiscus flower in real life, you know just how tropical these flowers are! With gigantic magenta petals with fancy, orange accents, these fragrant beauties will bring your right back to your once-in-a-lifetime Hawaiian getaway.
Hibiscus is iconic on it's own, but we blend our Hibiscus oils with hints of coconut, tuberose, gardenia, and citrus for an extremely invigorating and romantic smell. A base of amber is the perfect accent to this tropical flower's body - you'll swear there are fresh cut flowers livening up your room... Nope - we swear, it's just our Hibiscus candle!
If you're looking for a straight-up tropical scent, we think Paradise Bay is your calling. This candle is the best of all worlds - salty ocean air; fresh exotic fruit; fragrant beachside flowers - Paradise Bay takes a little bit of it all and wraps it into one, glorious aroma.
Whereas Ocean Breeze is your tried-and-true ocean air scent, Paradise Bay offers a little more to dive into (pun certainly intended). Light them both, side-by-side for an inescapable summer moment, or use your intuition to see if you can spot the subtle, but poignant differences between the two!
