Pippa Bailey at The Independent selected the seaside vibes of Hav by Skandinavisk and Big Sur After Rain by D.S. & Durga as her candle picks for spring. Abi from the These Four Walls blog recommends swapping the smoky, spicy notes of autumn and winter for lighter, more uplifting scents when spring comes around. She picked Lempi by Skandinavisk and Bloom by Hobo & Co. as great candles to light as the days begin to warm up.
If you’re a candle aficionado like Kelly Conaboy from The Cut, you should definitely check out the Tomb of Eagles candle by D.S. & Durga which according to Kelly “smells like warm, creamy sea, which maybe doesn’t sound great, but please trust me that it is. It’s interesting and relaxed and very cool.”
If you’re not quite ready to move to a lighter scent, then Carolyn Bailey from Good Housekeeping recommends Abd El Kadar by Cire Trudon saying “Abd El Kadar has notes of sweet jasmine and vanilla blended with spearmint, apple and clove. The fragrance is cleverly balanced with citrusy notes of lemon and ginger. Rich and heady, and I love it.”
Boy Smells are always ahead of the game and their Hypernature collection is a springtime dream. Alicia Kort at Stylecaster adores the Agua Du Jardin candle saying “I love that it comes in this shiny, eye-catching green tumbler.”
At Vogue, Lauren Valenti selected her favourite mood-lifting spring candles including refreshing cool and minty aromas, green and earthy scents, and of course, classic florals. Boy Smells Petal candle was picked to “evoke the spirit of a balmy, al fresco spring night” and we couldn’t agree more.
Charley Ward at Red Online picked a few Osmology candles for her list of the 20 spring candles to boost your mood in lockdown. Charley says that Aery’s Citrus Tonic candle is “a reminder that brighter days are on their way” while Cire Trudon’s Salta scented candle is simply “lovely”.
