How to Choose the Perfect Summer Fragrances for Your Home

All year round candles create a wonderful ambience through the subtle aromas they emit, and the soft light of the flame. Delicate fragrances can create a mood, a memory, and stimulate the senses. A warming cinnamon scent makes us feel cosy and festive, whereas fresh florals encourage us to spring into summer! At Arya, one of our favourite times of year for candles is under the warm summer sun, just as it starts to set into the evening. We also love to fill our home with fresh, natural fragrances of zingy citrus and beautiful florals. 

If you feel overwhelmed by all the different fragrance choices, we are here to help. With our expert knowledge of scents and oils we have some top tips on choosing summer aromas for your home and garden.

1. Use lighter and fresher fragrances
During winter we all tend to favour heavier, warmer fragrances such as clove or sandalwood, however in the spring and summer we look towards choosing lighter tones in many aspects of our day to day life. Just like we would wear lighter clothes in the summertime, or spring-clean our homes, this time of year is an opportunity to re-evaluate the aromas we’re using.


2. Indulge with citrus scents
A lime mojito on a hot summer’s day, or a refreshing glass of Pimms is the embodiment of summer. Tropical fruits, refreshing berries, and invigorating citruses are all wonderful scents that can be incorporated into your home or garden. Our Grapefruit & Eucalyptus (with a hint of black pepper), made with therapeutic essential oils, is a delectable fragrance: Uplifting, refreshing, and invigorating!

3. Embrace the floral aromas
Summer isn’t complete without flowers bursting from the ground, filling the gardens with an abundance of colour, and permeating the air with soft, sweet aromas. Floral scents bring the warm season right into your home. Our Lavender & Bergamot candle embodies summertime, and with the soothing, relaxing lavender it is the perfect candle to unwind with at the end of the day.

We have encapsulated summer in three special blends, made with soy wax and pure essential oils: Wild Lemongrass, Grapefruit & Eucalyptus, and Lavender & Bergamot. We chose to make these candles in a beautiful white glass jar to capture the essence of the brighter, longer days during this time of year.
