Orange Blossom and Its Association with Love and Marriage

Orange blossom has been a popular scent for centuries, especially in regard to bridal traditions. Orange blossoms were said to bring luck and fertility and were often used as decoration at weddings throughout the Middle Ages. Today, orange blossom fragrances can also be found in many of the candles given as gifts to brides-to-be. In fact, our Team Bride candle is one of the best ways to experience this lovely fragrance for yourself. Since the warm, soft and citrusy aroma of orange blossom has come to symbolize love and marriage, it is also a favorite among couples on their wedding day.

So, What Does Orange Blossom Smell Like? 

Orange blossom is the quintessential scent of springtime, with notes ranging from sweet to bitter and everything in between. The scent has enchanted people for centuries. In Ancient Egypt, it was used as an aphrodisiac oil in sacred ceremonies, while it symbolizes the purity of Mary in Christianity.

Despite its long history, orange blossom is still surprisingly popular today, appearing in perfumes, lotions, candles and other scented products. It’s easy to see why this delicate floral scent has captivated so many people. Its light and airy composition makes it a great complement to spicy or woodsy aromas. Plus its versatility makes it an ideal choice for fragrances year-round, and its subtle sweetness adds a hint of nostalgia. With these features, there’s no wonder why orange blossom continues to be a favorite fragrance pick for many people.

The wonderful smell of orange blossom is truly unique and can’t be found anywhere else. But what makes it stand out is its bright and uplifting aroma, which lingers in the air and captures the senses in a way that few other scents can match. Orange blossom has a calming, balancing effect, which is why those who use essential oils often opt for this particular scent. 

It’s also associated with luck, joy and optimism, giving it an overall positive connotation. This helps to make orange blossom such a popular choice when it comes to relaxation and boosting emotional well-being. Even if you don’t want to take advantage of its healing properties or emotional effects, you can certainly appreciate its wonderfully distinctive smell for all its worth
