Best scents for summer - top 10 reed diffusers and soy candles.

Indulge in the Best Scents for Summer with our Top 10 Reed Diffusers & Candles

Posted by Maisie Yerkess on

Have you ever walked into a room and immediately felt drawn in by a delightful scent? Or felt uplifted by a burst of citrus or something nostalgically sweet? That’s the beauty of long-lasting home scents. Since our UK ‘Summer’ isn’t providing the mood-boosting weather, it’s time to turn to reed diffusers and soy candles to give your home a little lift. 

The Role of Fragrance in Your Home

 

The best reed diffusers and soy candles have the power to completely shift the mood and atmosphere of your home. Picture this; you’ve had a gruelling day at work, one too many things have gone wrong and all you’re thinking about is setting yourself down and curling up in your favourite armchair. The moment you walk through the door, you’re met with the sweet scent of tonka bean and vanilla. Your tense mood immediately starts to evaporate. Later, you retreat to your bedroom, light your favourite soy candle, and you melt into the calming, floral aroma of lavender - pure bliss.

Choosing the Best Scents for Summer

 

Gone is the season of rich winter berry scents, and sweet cinnamon aromas. Summer is the season to experiment with fresh, zesty, uplifting scents that feel like warm weather, blooming flowers and freshness. When choosing a scent, whether you’re opting for a reed diffuser or soy candles, you should think about how it complements each room, and the atmosphere you’re hoping to create. 

Reed Diffusers VS. Soy Candles

 

Reed diffusers are the perfect choice when you’re looking for a constant, but subtle fragrance. In spaces like hallways, bathrooms or dining rooms where you don’t need an overwhelming scent, reed diffusers are low-maintenance, but keep the area fresh and smelling lovely. Reed diffusers, can also be styled beautifully in these areas, on console tables and windowsills. Candles on the other hand add cosy ambiance with their warm, flickering glow, and offer a more intense, impactful scent. Playing around with different types of fragrances is the only way to work out what truly works out the best for you. However, we recommend using reed diffusers for all-day freshness and subtle scent, and soy candles for evenings, special moments, and creating ambiance. Whether reed diffusers or candles are your fragrance of choice, quality is key, so invest in good quality soy candles and long-lasting fragrances with natural oils.

Tips for Making The Most out of Your Reed Diffusers & Candles

 

If you take care of your fragrances, they will take care of you. To maximise the longevity of your reed diffuser, place them in areas where the air circulates well and flip the reeds every couple of days. Avoid putting your reed diffusers in direct sunlight, as it can cause the oil to evaporate quicker. For soy candles, always allow the candle to melt right to the edges before blowing out to avoid tunnelling, and trim the wick as per instructions.
