How to Choose the Perfect Candle in 2023

The perfect aromatherapy candle for reading and relaxing

Candles are a great way to add ambiance and warmth to any room. Whether you're looking for a relaxing scent to unwind after a long day or a festive scent to celebrate a special occasion, chances are there's a candle out there for you.

Here are some tips for choosing the perfect candle for any occasion in 2023.

Consider the Occasion

The first thing to consider when choosing a candle is the occasion. Are you looking for a romantic candle for a date night? Or maybe a festive candle for a holiday party? Different scents can evoke different moods and emotions, so it's important to choose a candle that fits the occasion.

Here are a few examples of scents that go well with the mood you are trying to set.

  • Relaxing: lavender, chamomile, vanilla - our original blend, Retreat, is the ultimate relaxing getaway candle perfect for reading a book and chilling at home.

  • Energizing: lemon, grapefruit, peppermint - our customers love Burst at all times of the day, we especially love it in the early afternoon for a second wave of energy and brightness in our home.

  • Romantic: rose, jasmine, ylang-ylang - we love lighting our Scentr Candle Co. Rouge wax melts for an in-home date night.

  • Cozy: cinnamon, clove, nutmeg

  • Festive: pine, cinnamon, peppermint

Choose a Scent That You Love

In addition to considering the occasion, it's also important to choose a scent that you love. After all, you'll be the one smelling it! If you're not sure what scent you like, try to think about the scents that make you happy or bring back good memories. Some popular candle scents include lavender, vanilla, and peppermint.

Look for High-Quality, Eco-Friendly Candles

When choosing a candle, it's important to look for high-quality, eco-friendly candles. Not only are these candles better for the environment, but they also burn cleaner and last longer than cheaper candles. Look for candles made from soy or beeswax, as these are more sustainable than traditional paraffin wax candles. Also, consider candles that are vegan and cruelty-free.

At Scentr Candle Co., we are proud to offer a wide selection of high-quality, eco-friendly candles. Our candles are made from 100% soy wax and are hand-poured in small batches to ensure quality and consistency. We use only the finest essential oils and phthalate-free fragrances to create our unique scents. Plus, our candles are vegan and cruelty-free, so you can feel good about your purchase.

Consider Your Budget

When choosing a candle, it's important to consider your budget. Candles can range in price from a few dollars to hundreds of dollars, depending on the brand, size, materials, and quality. If you're on a tight budget, look for smaller candles or consider purchasing candles in bulk. You can also look for sales or discounts to save money on your favorite candles. Remember, high-quality candles may be more expensive, but they often last longer and burn cleaner than cheaper candles.


Choosing the perfect candle can be a fun and rewarding experience. By considering the occasion, choosing a scent that you love, and looking for high-quality, eco-friendly candles, you can create the perfect ambiance for any room. Try out different scents and enjoy the calming and relaxing experience of burning candles.
