As a reader, I always love making book recommendations and there’s no exceptions when it comes to candles, too! I love making recommendations based on what a person might enjoy or specific scents that they like so I wanted to highlight some Novelly Yours candles based on selected scents!
Today we’re talking about CITRUS. I always love fresh and fruity scents for summer and citrus is just so refreshing and invigorating, especially for warmer weather seasons like spring and summer. Here are a few of my favorite candles with citrus notes as a prominent part of the fragrance profile!
Citrus + sea/ocean
Night Triumphant is the resident Rhysand candle here at Novelly Yours and smells strongly of Rhys’ citrus and sea scents! The sea and ocean fragrances tend to be base notes of a candle and the citrus comes out on top with scents of zesty lemon and grapefruit, followed up by a balance love soothing jasmine.
Citrus + outdoors
If you’re looking for a fresh, outdoors scent, Scarlet is one of my favorite candles in the shop! Inspired by the leading lady in the second Lunar Chronicles book, Scarlet is reminiscent of her home at Benoit Farms and Gardens with some fruity smells of grapefruit, lemon, apple, and strawberries to represent the fruits of the farm and refreshing meadow, outdoors, and rain for a lovely outside-in-summer feel!
CATH’S LEMON TARTS
Citrus + baked goods
If you’re in the mood for more of a food-scented candle, Cath’s Lemon Tarts, inspired by HEARTLESS, has a delicious lemon cake profile that makes my mouth water! (I seriously get a craving for lemon cake every time I smell it.) It has a yummy lemon cake aroma with notes of sugar, flaky pastry, and buttercream frosting for an overall zesty citrus cake feel!
Musky outdoors + citrus
Citrus tends to be a top note in candles so even though it’s not the heaviest fragrance load in the Parabatai candle, it still makes itself known in the fragrance profile! Parabatai smells first and foremost like a dark forest — darker outdoorsy notes followed by fallen leaves, stormy nights, and a little bit of crackling firewood top a touch of lemon and grapefruit scents to give this candle and extra zesty edge!
Those are the main candles in the shop with lemon, grapefruit, and other citrus notes! I love the notes that these fragrances add to a candle and citrus has really become a favorite scent of mine!
