If you’ve yet to burn a candle from Aura, you are in for a treat. Aura creators Chelsea and Jasmine (of the San Diego, California area) offer a high quality candle at an affordable price. Their creamy custom blended soy candles are generously scented with essential and natural fragrance oils. Each creative blend is designed to burn slowly, cleanly and completely.
With Blush, Aura has added a nice, sexy floral to their collection. This is a really playful fragrance, you might even call it flirty. Notes of pink peony and gardenia compliment each other nicely. The peony is a clear top note, but to me, soft gardenia notes are really the hero in this candle.
I’ll try to be impartial here, but I really LOVE Nomad. This fragrance is an earthy and masculine blend with notes of cedar, rosemary and patchouli. Aura says this candle is “inspired by the great outdoors.” I’d have to agree. I’ve done a lot of camping in my years and this fragrance truly captures the scent notes of an evening around a campfire. To be clear, this is not a ‘smoky’ fragrance — but the cedar, blended with the patchouli does remind me of a ‘forest’ after the sun has set. Herbal notes from the rosemary interact well with other scents in this very pleasing fragrance.
If you’re new to Aura, don’t forget to ask for scent samples when ordering from Candles Off Main. This is a great way to sample Aura’s growing range of fragrances.
