Understanding Fragrance Notes

The initial scent that you perceive after igniting a candle is referred to as the top notes, also known as the head or opening notes. Although they dissipate swiftly, they establish the first impression of the fragrance.

Following the dissipation of the top notes, the middle notes or the heart notes come into play. These notes are regarded as the essence of the fragrance and endure longer than the top notes. They are usually well-balanced, lending body to the scent.

The base notes are what remains at the end and have the most significant impact on our memory of the fragrance. They persist for the longest period and blend with the middle notes to give the candle its overall character.


Fragrances that have a clean, crisp scent, such as citrus, herbs, and aquatic notes.


Fragrances that have spicy, exotic notes such as vanilla, musk, and amber.


Fragrances that feature scents of wood and moss, such as sandalwood, cedarwood, and oakmoss.


Fragrances that primarily feature floral notes, such as rose, jasmine, and lavender.


Fragrances that feature food-inspired scents, such as chocolate, caramel, and vanilla.


Fragrances that feature fruity scents, such as apple, peach, and berries.
