Despite a brief return to sleet and snow last week, spring is here – and that means it’s time for my seasonal round-up of the best scented candles. For me candles aren’t just a winter thing, and I love selecting fragrances that suit my mood and the season. Around now I start swapping the smoky, spicy notes that I tend to favour during the colder months for lighter scents that breath a bit of freshness into the house, and I’ve picked out 21 of my favourites below.
The ever-increasing array of candles on the market nowadays means narrowing down the choice can be tricky, so I’ve focused on the kind of thing that appeals to me at this time of year. There are delicate florals evoking blossom and wildflower-filled woodland, clean blends inspired by laundry billowing in the breeze, aqueous fragrances that speak of refreshing spring rain showers, and invigorating scents created to uplift and revitalise after the long, dark winter. What’s more, almost all the candles I’ve included are produced using natural wax and hand-made by small, independent businesses. I hope you find something you like!"
