No romantic evening is complete without the warmth and soft glow of candles. Be sure to make the most of their seductive effect, by choosing romantic candle scents. Since there are so many fragrance notes to choose from, it can be overwhelming to decide on the right romantic candle scent for you. Whether you are in pursuit of winning someone over, showing appreciation for your hardworking partner, or spicing things up with your long-time flame, this guide will help take some of the guess work out of your selection.

Voluspa French Bourbon Vanille

Are you courting a new prospect? If you are planning your first romantic meal at home, but you do not want the smell of your famous salmon dish lingering after dining, move to the living room for dessert, cocktails, and a beautiful fragrance. Dim the lights and set a romantic scene with the Voluspa French Bourbon Vanille in the vermeil speckle tinted apothecary jar. When this candle is burning, the flame glows through the gaps in the vermeil, looking absolutely radiant. The newness of your relationship is represented with the simple, sweet vanilla, while the bourbon embodies the intoxicating attraction that brought you together in the first place.

For the man or woman who wants to show gratitude for their supportive other half, the scent of rose is perfectly fitting for a romantic evening of appreciation.  Everyone shows love and feels loved through different actions. Some people crave physical touch, while others need verbal validation of their contribution to the relationship. In an article regarding Sexy Scents, Love Lifestyle coach Carlye Dean writes that, “rose absolute is an erotic scent with aphrodisiac characteristics. It is emotionally uplifting and opens the heart.” What a perfect combination for both affection preferences. The romantic rose scent inspires a relaxed and engaging atmosphere that may open a tired and overworked partner to the idea of more palpable displays of affection.

Red Flower Moroccan Rose Petal Topped Candle will gently fill the air with the beautiful scent of Moroccan rose, blossomed under the electric blue African sky. The petals are packaged with the candle and can be used to enhance a warm bath with fragrance and beauty. You could also create a trail with the petals, leading your loved one from the front door to a dreamy surprise.

Aura Obscure Candle

Finally, if you are searching for a romantic candle scent to rekindle a currently snuffed flame, pepper is an unexpected note for spicy enticement.  Pepper will startle the senses with vigor and warmth, bringing unexpected appeal to a tedious, unromantic environment. Aura Candles created a sexy blend of white pepper, black ginger, and musk in their highly rated scent, Obscure. Our customer Annie from Naples, Fl said, “This scent is so exotic smelling, it is fast becoming one of my surprise favorites! If this scent was a person, it would be Angelina Jolie.” Yowza!

When the options become overwhelming, remember boozy vanilla, romantic rose, and spicy pepper for what they bring to the table… or to the bedroom.  Give any of these scents a try to spark a new flame, or to keep your romantic fire alive.
