Spring is all about new beginnings, rejuvenation, and of course, the inevitable spring clean. Once you know winter is well and truly behind you and you’ve done away with the dust and rain stained windows, you’ll be left with a home that’s sparkling like the dew on spring flowers. Of course, to welcome in spring in style, adding fine smelling finishing touches to the home is the icing on the Easter cake.
A simple and cost effective way to add fragrance to your home, and change it day by day, or to suit your mood, is by using candles. One of the most popular candle producers is the American company, Yankee Candle, loved the world over for their long burning time, high quality, long lasting perfumes and their new ranges which launch according to the seasons of the year.
Lovely Kiku is one candle that catches the essence of spring with chrysanthemum blossom and warm vanilla. The name alone is intriguing and coupled with a good book and the curtains wide open, it’s ideal for a Sunday afternoon of quality time in the living room for complete rejuvenation.
Spring is also about cut grass and sudden showers which when transformed into a candle which gives an aroma of raindrops on green grass. It’s the scent to herald the arrival of spring and is a top choice for burning in a hallway or kitchen to welcome guests into the house. Burn it alongside Clean Cotton for that washing on the line, spring in bloom feeling.
Yankee Candle’s tarts have accessories too which add light to any spring cleaned room. Three or four Florantine frosted glass vases lined up on the fireplace or on a shelf with different tarts make for a candle meltdown, if you will.
Add a floral and fruity fragranced candle such as Champacablossom (again, an amazing name!) with aromas of pink hibiscus to a longstanding favourite, Buttercream, for churned cream and sugar, and lush island inspired Under The Palms, for a unique spring fragrance just for your home. Or, try a tart in every Yankee Candle flavour until you find your signature fragrance.
