Despite the many adventures summer brings our way, if you’re like me, the heat can drain us of energy and the excitement we once felt so strongly for this season. I’m there.
NEW Nomad from Aura Candles is a blend of cedar, rosemary, and patchouli. Like a cool evening outdoors, spent with friends around the firepit — the cedar notes really stand out in Nomad. The dark, herbal notes from the rosemary round out the fragrance and the patchouli provides a rich spiciness to create an overall pleasing masculine fragrance.
K. Hall Pomegranate
K. Hall Pomegranate. Reminiscent of the berries you can pick in summer, a juicy, dark, fruity fragrance like pomegranate is perfect as a transition. Patchouli notes in this candle provide a woody and spiciness to the fragrance to create even more of a grounded scent.
Voluspa Moso Bamboo
Voluspa Moso Bamboo. A grassy, green fragrance thanks to moso bamboo accords, made richer with the addition of Japanese cypress, providing just a hint of an evergreen scent. Musk adds a little sweetness and creaminess to create a very calming fragrance.
NEST Vanilla Orchid and Almond
NEST Fragrances Vanilla Orchid & Almond. Warm and nutty notes of almond stand out in this fragrance, while the milky, gourmand addition of the vanilla makes a creamy and slightly sweet affect. You can catch just a hint of peach and apple, along with white orchid that all help to lighten this fragrance to make it more appealing as a transition fragrance.
Linnea’s Lights Cashmere
Linnea’s Lights Cashmere. An all-around favorite fragrance with us, Cashmere will create a warm and inviting environment with fragrance notes of patchouli, vanilla and lime.
Trapp Orange Vanilla
Trapp Orange Vanilla. Though a bestseller all year round, this is the perfect season for Trapp Orange Vanilla. The citrus notes of zesty orange are reminiscent of a refreshing summer cocktail, while the sweet creamy vanilla notes provide a rich base without making this classic fragrance overly gourmand.
Trapp Patchouli Sandalwood
Finally, from Trapp — Patchouli Sandalwood is a comforting blend of Asiatic patchouli, sandalwood and cedar. This is a great fragrance to create a relaxing environment. I often burn this fragrance in our bedroom, as there is definitely something sexy about the earthy notes in this Trapp bestseller.
As we prepare for earlier sunsets, cooler, breezy nights I look forward to sitting with a good glass of wine, maybe a book and enjoying the glow of candlelight as I look forward to autumn and the holiday season!
