candle fragrances to suit your mood

Here at Melt we never underestimate the power of scent to change or enhance your mood. We’ve picked out some of our favourite candle fragrances that make perfect pick-me-ups, calm-me-downs, mood-setters and party-starters.

Relaxing and Unwinding

Tough day at the office? Fear not, Melt have the perfect fragrance blends to restore your inner-calm. Vanilla’s the magic ingredient when it comes to relaxing scent blends; known by aromatherapists as a “hypnotic”, vanilla melts away your worries and leaves you feeling easy and serene.

A true comfort fragrance, blush is the perfect choice for de-stressing after a taxing day at work. Malted vanillas and a base of ambers and woods make this a warming, soft and feminine candle – perfect for dotting around the bathroom before stepping into a hot, deep luxurious bubble bath!

Relaxation in a candle. The blend of black lavender, amber, sweet vanilla and sweet musk creates a heady, hypnotic aroma that will banish the stresses and pressure of the day and induce a sense of calm and peace.

Entertaining Guests

Why not choose your candle to match your guests? Use scent to create the atmosphere, bring your guests out of themselves, set the mood and put everyone at their ease. Your guests will be mixing, mingling and chatting away in no time.

Burgundy is a warm, inviting, elegant yet homely choice for a dinner party – perfect for the guests you want to impress! The blend of ylang, carnation, rose, lily, jasmine, almond, prune, apricot, aniseed and basil is unusual but instantly likeable; prepare yourself for compliments!

Its name tells you everything you need to know about this fragrance. Dance is a heady floral mix of lily, jasmine and gardenia with added sparkle and depth from blackcurrant, mandarin, sandalwood and musk. Dance is a great option for injecting energy and mischief into the party.

Romantic Dinner for Two

If you ask us, a romantic dinner without a few gorgeous scented candles is just…well…not all that romantic! Here are our top picks for that evening in, just the two of you!

An unashamedly rosy candle, our Love scent is made up of rose Bulgaria, rose geranium, rose absolute maroc, bois de rose, Turkish rose oil and violet. Rose is the ultimate symbol of love and rose fragrance oils and absolutes have been treasured for centuries as an aphrodisiac. Scrumptiously irresistible!


Melt’s Angel candle evokes the frisky, fluffy, butterflies-in-the-tummy side of romance. Dewberry, cassis, jasmine, rose, vanilla, patchouli, amber and cheeky little hint of chocolate smells good enough to eat! Pop several room scenters around the place or make one of our cute “short and fat” pillar candles the centrepiece of your romantic dinner table.

Those are just a few ideas, but you can truly find a candle to match any mood. Explore our candles page to see our full range and read about our unique fragrance blends or search our blog for more ideas!
