What to Look for in a Quality Scented Candle

There are numerous scents in the world of candles, ranging anywhere from cedarwood, to vanilla, to patchouli, to name a few. These fragrances are added to candles in the form of either essential oils or fragrance oils blended by perfumers. 

The materials used in each candle can influence the burn time, fragrance, and even have an effect on your health. Purchasing high-quality candles will not only result in the ultimate fragrance and experience, but can also be beneficial to the environment and your health.

Candles can also be used as decorative objects and our French scented candles are known for their exceptional fragrances. But what do you need to look for in a quality candle? Here’s our top 5 tips to getting it right all the rime!


  1. Wax Composition

A candle's capacity to retain its scent over time depends on its wax composition and the ingredients used. Quality scented candles are made with a blend of soy, coconut, and beeswax which lasts longer and burns cleaner compared to other blends. Choose a scented candle with natural ingredients like these for a better, longer-lasting burn. As you choose the best scented candles, consider New Flame candles as they are made from the natural blend of coconut, soy, and beeswax and result in long-lasting and clean burn.


  1. Health Consideration

Our luxury scented candles use the best waxes made from organic ingredients such as soy, coconut, and beeswax. These are safe for your health when inhaled and will not be toxic for the environment. Beeswax has purifying properties, burns clean, and also burns slowly hence increasing the burn time of our candles - which means you can enjoy our candles for longer and spend less in the long run.


  1. Source of the Candle Ingredients

When choosing a scented candle, it is important to consider the source of the candle. Our candles are made in Grasse, France, the fragrance capital of the world, with only the highest quality ingredients sourced from GMO-free producers in the EU and US. These make them safe to use indoors. When burned properly, they will fill your home with a beautiful, fragrant scent that will create a relaxing atmosphere.


  1. Type of Perfume Used

There are many types of perfumes used in candles. Not all are healthy or manufactured ethically and therefore a need to regulate fragrances is necessary with the IFRA (International Fragrance Association). When a candle is IFRA certified, it means that it has been tested and found that its fragrance and ingredients meet the highest quality standards. Our perfume types are nature based and include citrus, wood, ocean and musk which are luxurious and not overpowering.


  1. The Ideal Experience

What kind of experience are you looking for? Do you want a candle that smells strongly, or one that's more subtle? Strong-smelling candles are great for filling up a large room, while subtler scents are perfect for creating a more intimate ambiance. For long-lasting enjoyment, look for a candle with a high fragrance load and a slow, even burn rate, like our candles have.
