In the same way that spritzing yourself with your favourite perfume lifts your mood, a wonderful harmony of fragrance can transform a house into a home. Whether you live alone and want to return to a welcoming scent after a long day, or you have a busy house, complete with all the weird and wonderful smells that brings, a scented candle is a great way to put your stamp on those four walls. 

While floral and fruity fragrances have their place, fresh smelling candles are great for making you feel uplifted and energised. So, get ready to come out of hibernation with this selection of refreshing candles and melts.
