The 4 Basic Candle Scent Types You Need To Know
Candle scents are grouped into 4 distinct categories – Fresh, Floral, Woody and Oriental.
Each candle has a fragrance blend that is a harmony of top, middle and base notes. Top notes are what you smell first when enjoying a candle before the middle notes are revealed. As the candle burns, the base notes gradually come to light. Even though fragrance notes from a candle may belong to different scent categories, there is usually a dominant aroma in a candle which determines how the candle is ultimately classified.
Fresh fragrances feature splashes of bright citrus, grassy green notes and aquatic aromas. They are bright, refreshing, exuberant and are cheerful mood lifters.
