Enjoy a Special Aroma

 A tranquil atmosphere filled with your favorite scent... Sometimes, that's all you need to feel comfortable at home, and you can achieve it by choosing your favorite candles and lighting them. The variety of aromatic candles is immense, so you're sure to find more than one scent that captivates you. The key to success is opting for soft fragrances that aren't too intense and overwhelming. You might tire of the latter quickly. Keep trying until you discover your favorite scent.

A Candle for Every Style

Shape, size, color, aroma... There are many aspects to consider when choosing candles to decorate the house, especially if you want them to fit the decor style. There's always a perfect candle for every space.

- Classic and elegant: in carved glass jars, delicate cups, or porcelain containers.

- Natural: with scents like pine or eucalyptus, in simple containers

- Boho: in colorful and cheerful glasses decorated with bohemian motifs. With fruity and floral scents.

- Minimalist: choose candles in neutral glasses, without decoration. Opt for soft and relaxing aromas like lavender or eucalyptus.

- Nordic-inspired: with containers made of simple materials like glass or earthenware, and with fragrances of wood, cinnamon, ginger, etc.

Perfect for Christmas

Candles are an essential element in Christmas decoration that you can take full advantage of. You can use them in a thousand ways, and they always add a magical touch. One idea is to gather a few festive-style candles, combining two colors (from traditional green and red to gold or silver), and place them in any corner, on a piece of furniture or a shelf, to enjoy their glow.

For Table Decoration

Now that celebration days are approaching, it's time to get some candles to adorn the table. You'll need several, depending on the occasion and the elements: tablecloths, dishes, etc.

You can opt for sculptural and modern candles or simpler models. The important thing is that they are balanced in terms of color and style with the table decoration.

A tip: for the table, always choose unscented candles. This way, they won't interfere with the food aromas, and the experience will be better for the diners.


A Still Life of Light

 Do you want to add magic to your bedroom? Place a set of candles on the bedside table. Choose candles of the same kind but different heights to create volume. You'll love the result.

You can also arrange a small still life of candles on the coffee table in the living room. Or in the bathroom, to add a touch of glamour to a home spa session.

Choose appropriate scents for each case: relaxing for the bedroom and bathroom, and more intense and vibrant scents for daytime areas.


In the Entryway and on the Stairs

 Placing candles on the steps of the staircase is a foolproof idea to add style to your home when, for example, you're waiting for guests to arrive for a celebration gathering. Use candles of the same color but different sizes, and light them before your guests arrive. It will be a magical idea to welcome them.

A tip: if there are small children or mischievous pets at home, be very careful with the candles and never leave them unattended.


For the Terrace

It's true that autumn and winter aren't the best times to spend much time on the terrace, as the cold doesn't invite us outside. However, you may have warm days when you can enjoy the outdoors, especially if you have an outdoor heater to help combat the cold. Prepare everything, and when that moment arrives, all you'll need to do is wrap yourself in a soft blanket and relax. Choose your favorite candles and place them on the floor or on a side table

The Best Supports for Your Candles

There are many ways to present candles, besides those sold in their own containers. Choose simple alternatives or those with more prominence, depending on the occasion, the type of candle, and the space.

You can place them on flat trays, in carved glass vases, or with elegant glasses placed upside down. You can also decorate some spaces with small tea candles in recycled jars or yogurt containers. Tie them with twine or raffia, and they'll look beautiful. Lanterns can be another interesting option to decorate the living room with candles.

 How to Make Your Candles Last Longer

 If you're a fan of decorating the house with candles, you probably have a good collection at home that helps you create very comfortable and special atmospheres. So that you won't hesitate to light them whenever you want, even your favorites, and watch them burn, here are some tips to improve maintenance.

- Clean your candles occasionally to remove the dust they accumulate. Do this with a damp microfiber cloth.

- Trim the wicks as the candles burn down and remove the dripped wax.

- When the candle is consumed, reuse the containers. You can put them in the freezer for a while, as frozen wax is easier to remove.
