We have all walked into a room or space and stopped dead in our tracks to appreciate the wonderful scents that titillated our olfactory sense. What scents are those and why do we gravitate towards them? We are going to share the top scents to elevate your home year-round.

Some scents produce a relaxing energy that immediately relaxes our body and mind while encouraging us to take deep breaths. As most know, scents like eucalyptus, jasmine and lavender come to mind when we think of tranquility. However, there are so many others that can transport us through a heightened sensory experience.

We’ve gathered some of our favorite scents and are sharing some of the best candles to bring them into your home.

Some scents give nods of woodiness helping to bring the outdoors in. Cedarwood and Sandalwood are two of our favorites providing fresh, crisp fragrances that seem to immediately freshen the air that surrounds us. With the proper mix of other top and bottom notes, a wood-centric candle can truly transform a space.

The Copal Fantome candle from Boy Smells blends notes of cedarwood with leather, vanilla bean and charred glove for the perfect scented centerpiece for your next gathering.
