Fresh Orange Candles

It's one of those stuffy winter days where you just want to open the windows and clean the stuffy air out of th house. Today I turn to my fresh, orange scented candles to help me out.

One of my favorite fresh orange scents is Orange Sanguine by Atelier Cologne. I fell in love with the cologne at first sniff. When they launched a candle in the same scent, I immediately snagged it. I'm crazy about Atelier candles. They smell exactly as the cologne so I can be surrounded in the scent I love so much. While they don't burn evenly, they do burn cleanly and completely off the glass. The fragrance is strong without being overwhelming. Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine features top notes of top notes blood orange and bitter orange along with heart notes of jasmine and geranium from South Africa. The base notes are amber woods, tonka beans and sandalwood. What's not to love?! Atelier Cologne candles are made in France with a blend of vegetable and paraffin wax.

I am completely addicted to the Tocca Stella Body Scrub (Tocca Esfoliante da Corpo Stella Rich Body Polish ). I LOVE this scent and the body scrub is the best I've tried. Surprisingly, it wasn't until just recently that I started burning the Tocca Stella candle. The fragrance is the same as the polish and it's a perfect, fresh scent. Heaven!!

Another favorite blood orange candle is Red Flower Italian Blood Orange. Red Flower does a great job at making scents that focus in one one particular fragrance. Their blood orange candle is their most beautiful burning candle offering a brilliant orange glow as the wax liquefies. The scent is simple and pure.

"Imagine the creamy flavor of a homemade gelato, dripping with mandarin, sweet tangerine, honeyed Clementine, and a hint of musk." I love Bond No. 9 perfume so when I heard they had a candle in my favorite orange fragrance, Little Italy, I jumped on it. I love the orange vessel and heavy gold top.

Zesty orange scents are great anytime of year. In the winter they offer a fresh reprieve. In the summer, they are cooling on hot, steamy days. Orange is one of the few fragrances that can translate well into bath products, personal fragrance and home fragrance. Or all of the above at the same time!

  1. I have heard so many things about Atelier's Orange Sanguine, I MUST try it soon. It was reading this blog post that prompted me to want an orange-vanilla candle, that's why I went with Aura Cosmic. Really looking forward to getting it!
