If you want to improve your home décor why not try fragranced pillar candles?
Fragranced pillar candles are quite common in just about every room of the home. They are great centrepieces for mantles, dining room tables and coffee tables. Decorated with bows and flowers, fragranced pillar candles are easy to coordinate with any décor because they come in all sizes and colors.
When you look at the choice of scents you can have in fragranced pillar candles, you can have a different scent in your home for every season of the year or for different occasions. Of course you can also have non-fragranced candles if you just want to have the colored candles or you can even go with plain white candles.
Fragranced jar candles are also perfect for any occasion. When you want to put out the flame you just have to replace the top of the jar. You may need to buy a special candle lighter for jar candles because it is hard to get your hand down in the jar to light it once the candle burns down to a certain level.
With fragranced pillar candles, you don’t have this problem because the wick is always exposed and easy to light. You can choose different types of wax as well when you are buying a fragranced pillar candle and this will affect the way the candle burns.
Non-fragranced pillar candles are suitable for anyone, but they are most preferred by those with a scent allergy. You don’t have to do without candles because there is no scent whatsoever with the non-fragranced pillar or jar candles. Use three or more of these pillar candles on a plate candle holder and tie them together with a bow.
You can have colors matching all the décor of your room or choose the same color candles. If you choose fragranced pillar candles, you can choose heavily fragranced candles if you mainly want to use the candles as a centrepiece and not light them. The fragrance from the candle is enough to emit a delightful scent throughout the room.
You should never use fragranced pillar candles near food. If you are using them as part of a table centrepiece, then you should remove them from the table before you serve the food. This is why you will always find non fragranced pillar candles lit for a dinner. This applies to fragranced jar candles as well as free standing candles and tapered candles.
If you want a clean burning fragranced pillar candle, then your best choice is one made from soy wax or beeswax. Paraffin wax pillar candles tend to be more sooty and five off smoke.
When you are choosing non fragranced or fragranced pillar candles to suit your décor, you have to consider whether tall or short candles will suit better. You also have to decide whether you should use contrasting colors to accentuate small details or whether you want the candles to blend in with the main color of the décor.
So as you can see, it’s not just the fragrance that you have to consider when buying fragranced pillar candles.
