You’ve been to a bonfire, and with all the smells, thrills and excitement over it’s time to return home and relax. But what scents would work best and help you relax after bonfire night? Whether you’re planning a cosy night in, or you’re hosting the post-bonfire-party, there are plenty of ways to set the mood.
Something to acclimatise the senses
If you’re feeling a little sleepy after all the excitement and smoky smells, you’ll want a scent to clear the mind and bring you that much-needed boost of energy. Something fresh and vibrant, like peppermint, will not only make you feel more energised, it will also help clear the smoky scent post-bonfire. Citrus scents are another great option for waking up the mind and body and giving you that energy boost.
White Scented Candles – Relaxing and refreshing, this tranquil fragrance is ideal for acclimatising the senses while helping you feel more alert. The secret ingredient? Mint.
Shine Scented Candles – Our most uplifting scent, Shine, is made up of a zesty blend of armoise, grapefruit, bergamot, lemon, mandarin, with woody florals, rich amber and warm musks.
Something to freshen your home
While we do love the smoldering smell of a smoky bonfire, it’s not the ideal fragrance for your home. Whether you’ve hosted a bonfire in your back garden, or the smell of the bonfire is just lingering on your clothes, you’ll want to counteract the scent with a deep and rich scent.
Autumn Scented Candles – The definitive scent of the season, Autumn, has the power to remove all those nasty, lingering smells and replace them with the true scent of the seasons. What’s more it’s beautifully warming too – combining cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, orange, vanilla and spice.
Burgundy Scented Candles – If you’re hosting a swish post-bonfire do, Burgundy will be your ideal scent. Ylang, carnation, rose, almond, jasmine and rose come together with a whole host of other ingredients to create something complex and deep but soft. Perfection!
Something to help you feel all warm and snuggly
If you’re not up for partying, getting back to a warm and snug home will be top of your agenda. After a night out in the cool November temperatures you’re guaranteed to feel the chill. While cranking up the heating will take you part of the way to a snug home, so will a delicious warming scent, making you feel all cosy inside! Cinnamon, musk, vanilla and amber are all heartwarming, soft and snuggly scents you could try.
Blush Scented Candles – With its malted vanillas on a base of amber and woods, Blush is the ultimate comfort fragrance. Powdery and soft, it helps one to just float away to dream land.
Angel Scented Candles – Aptly named, Angel looks over you offering comfort and warmth with its beautiful combination of fragrances. With dewberry, cassis, jasmine, rose, vanilla, patchouli, amber, and a hint of chocolate, it hits all the right notes.
