A Strong Case for Burning Scented Candles All Year Round

Burning scented candles often gets bundled up with hot chocolate drinking and ice skating as purely a winter pursuit. I can understand why—curling up in front of a log fire under a cashmere blanket whilst the scent of Pomegranate Noir slowly infiltrates every corner of your living room is a bloody poetic image we'd all like to aspire to. But I like to burn scented candles throughout the summer, too, and I'll tell you why. In this sticky heat, scents like fresh laundry can make rooms feel airier, brighter, cleaner… And considering we're yet to instal a beautiful meadow garden in our third-floor inner-city flat, there are even summer scented candles that can replicate the soothing, organic smells of the countryside.
