9 CANDLES WE LOVE
It’s a fact: smell and memory are highly connected. Your brain’s limbic system is linked with memory; called the “emotional brain”, it’s also where the olfactory bulb can be found, meaning that the first time you smell a particular scent, it will be wired into your brain to be forever associated with that moment, place, or person. The scents we bring into our homes or offices are therefore going to trigger different responses, they might bring on fragrance flashbacks or we might create new associations. So it’s important to choose your home fragrances wisely – and really, who doesn’t want their home to smell good? To help you get there, we’ve scoped out a mix of scents that will appeal to every nose, whether you’re a fan of classic perfumes, heady scents or something light and lovely. We’ve divided the candles into categories; choose from smoky, masculine types, floral flair, fresh and clean, and more.
