Our Favorite Fruit Scented Candles
Fruit scented candles are popular for a reason: They can be sweet or tart, rich or refreshing. Whatever type of fragrance you prefer, there’s a fruit scented candle out there for you. If you’re in the market for one, here are eight of our favorite fruit scented candles to check out:
While you might not think of “champagne” when it comes to fruit candle scents, this candle incorporates many different types of fruits for an elegant and refreshing fragrance. Base notes of champagne grapes combine with mid notes of apple and pineapple. Top notes of mandarin, grapefruit and orange finish off this candle for a well-rounded scent profile. If you want a more unique fruit candle scent, definitely check this one out.
No list of fruit candle scents is complete without mentioning an apple candle. Our ever-popular apple orchard candle actually starts with a base of pomegranate and sugar cane to create a sweet yet tart scent. Pears, cloves and cinnamon sticks make up the mid notes, while red apple and mandarin leaf add that classic fall scent to this candle. If you want a classic apple candle that’s not too sweet, this is an excellent bet.
If you do want an apple candle that smells a bit sweeter, consider the Grandma’s Kitchen candle. This candle takes sugar cookie and vanilla, combines them with cinnamon and clove and then adds in a dash of butter, apple and cream for a rich fragrance that smells rather like an apple pie baking in the oven. It’s a great gift to give to your grandma, or to buy for yourself if you love the scent of apples.
Florida is known for its orange groves, so of course we had to include it on our list of fruit scented candles. To make this scent, we started with a base of vanilla, amber and musk for a sweet yet woody fragrance. Then, we added in notes of mangrove wood and orange to add that citrus scent, and finally finished it off with Spanish moss and bergamot (another type of citrus). If you’re looking for an orange candle that’s not too overwhelming, this is a great one to choose.
This fragrance includes not one but two fruit fragrances, peach and blackberry. We also added a third top note, tobacco, to call to mind smoky barbecues on a late summer night. For the base, we combined vanilla, amber and tonka bean and then layered in cinnamon, sugar and clove to really round out the fragrance profile. Our North Carolina candle definitely stands out amidst other more classic fruit scented candles like apple and orange, so be sure to check it out.
The candle incorporates blackberry, another less common but delicious smelling candle fragrance, as well as orange. Vanilla, sugar and musk form a solid base note that supports mid notes of pecan, orange and caramel for a sweet but nutty scent. We finished off the fragrance with notes of maple and blackberry to fully capture the scents of the state.
If you’re looking for a more masculine, deeper scent with just a hint of citrus, check out the Road Trip candle. Musky base notes of amber and jasmine mix with fresh air and cedarwood to capture that feeling of driving down an open highway on a road trip to remember. Hints of lime help round out the scent alongside leather and marine fragrances for a candle scent that you’ll love year-round.
While you might not have guessed from the name, our New York City candle incorporates multiple citrus scents for a fantastic fragrance. Top notes of bergamot, lemon and grapefruit really bring the citrus fragrance to the forefront, while scents of jasmine, concrete and water lilies help keep it from being too tart. The base notes of oakmoss, sandalwood and musk help ground the fragrance and add complexity.
