Our Best Candle Scents This Spring 2021

As part of our candle range, we help you to find a scent that you love but also make sure that we are in line with the seasons. With that in mind, here are some of the best Spring scents.

Happy trails

If Spring is about exploring the woodlands, getting out in nature, and feeling at one with the world, this is for the budding explorer in you. 

The candle is rich with woody notes infused with herbs and amber, and is made with 100% non-GMO soy wax. A very earthy and nature-friendly candle. The herbs are prominent, and the time of year where we start to see growths in the ground and start to use all of the flavors of the earth in our meals but also start to reap what we've sown is all encompassed in this beautiful candle. 

If you are looking for something that's closer to nature, and you want to start exploring the sensations of Spring, it is about that combination of fresh and fragrant herbs, while also feeling what nature has to offer.

Golden hour

For so many people, Spring is about clearing out and starting again, hence the “Spring Clean.” The sensation of starting over again is different for each and every one of us, and when we are considering what our home needs to smell like for this new start, we must recommend golden hour

It is the smell of luxury. With a wide variety of notes, from French Mandarin to bergamot and lemon, but with subtle notes of musk and cedarwood, golden hour is one of the most appealing candles for the senses. 

Spring is a season that, for many of us, is about freshness. As the flowers bloom, and the earth opens up, the right candle is always crucial for the person after something that makes you feel like Spring has sprung, and that your opportunities are endless.


When you go exploring in nature, you want the feel of the wind on your face, the cooling breeze, and all the subtle notes being absorbed by your senses. 

This candle carries all the mermaid vibes bottled up in a jar! Imagine your first breath of ocean air; clean, soothing yet invigorating. Our mermaid candle is a fresh and airy bouquet of orange blossom notes with a subtle hint of musk. It is also infused with natural essential oils of orange and lemon. Spring is about heading out into nature, getting your first taste of the great outdoors, and experiencing the freshness that comes along with it. 

Spring is the perfect opportunity for venturing into uncharted territory. As you can feel bound by your home life, with a limited opportunity to explore, this scent can recapture that sensation.

Neroli + jasmine

Spring is simple. People want to feel uplifted after an arduous and cold winter. And when you light this candle, the pressures of the winter months melt away like the last flakes of snow. 

The neroli blossoms make you feel instantly invigorated, but the undertones of jasmine and basil leaves give a depth to Spring that goes unnoticed. Many people now find the Spring months the perfect opportunity to start growing herbs again, and the notes of the basil make a fantastic compliment to the neroli.

Que sera sera

Whatever will be will be! While the overriding notes are tropical, we have to remember that Spring is about preparing for the summer months. We take the opportunities where we can to give our home a Spring clean. 

This tropical scent is full of lemon, gardenia jasmine, and tuberose to ensure that you get started on your Spring cleaning. Spring is about the flowers leaping up out of the ground, and getting themselves ready. If you are going to start Spring cleaning your home, we must recommend this scent that provides a sneak preview of the summer months, when also keeping things fresh. 

It is a very soft and floral scent that has a wide-ranging appeal, and it is a fantastic motto to remind us that, sometimes, we shouldn't overthink things. Take the opportunities to declutter your life and enjoy the smells of this soft and soothing scent.


For the earth lovers amongst you, this mix of sandalwood and vanilla is ideal. A taste of the earth beneath our feet, which is also infused with patchouli, cloverleaf, essential oils, and natural cedarwood, goes together to create a woody, almost smoky sensation. 

When you are hoping to get out into nature, and you like walks, exploring, and also feeling the earth beneath your feet, you want to recapture that sensation at home. When we are trying to get closer to what nature has to offer, the right scent is essential. It is a wonderful feeling to be at one with the world, especially when we are living in such stressful times. It is vital that we learn to embrace the calm. This candle is a long-lasting fragrance, and the patchouli gives it that extra air of calmness. 

Nobody likes to feel rushed in life, and we all just need the opportunity to stand our ground, look up to the sky, and feel nature on our face. But when we're not able to truly embrace what nature has to offer, we've got to go for the next best thing! This premium essential and fragrance oil blend is ideal for anyone on the lookout for a taste of nature that centers and calms them.


The Spring months can feel somewhat hectic if you have a lot of life admin. After all, this is the time of year we've got to clean the house and make sure that we are getting ready for the summer months. But this is the ideal time of year to truly embrace freshness. We have to remember that the Spring months give us a taste of what is to come. And the lessons that Spring has to teach us are not just about decluttering and preparing for the summer but are about that freshness and learning to mellow. 

The joy candle that we offer is a delightful combination of grapefruit, and mangosteen, with just a little bit of peach for good measure. When you are walking through an orange grove, you want that scent to hit you on the nose. And that's what this candle does! We all want to feel relaxed, and feel the breeze on our face during the Spring, before the summer makes everything uncomfortable and almost unbearable. 

We all need to learn how to calm down during busy times, and Spring is the ideal season when it is not too hot, not too cold, but is just right. This candle certainly brings joy into our lives.


Nashville during the Spring months is incredibly pleasant. With highs typically reaching around 70 degrees F, it is the perfect time to make the most of one of our greatest creations. 

Nashville is a friendly, sociable, fun, vibrant, yet sweet community. And this candle is the best of it all. Incorporating the light aromas of cedarwood, tobacco, and leather to create an earthy sensation, but with the soft aromas of patchouli and vanilla working their way around your nose, it provides the best of both worlds. 

An incredibly soft, but sweet aroma that we are proud to have as part of our stock. The scent is not too overpowering, and it is an ideal choice for those who are looking for something integral to the “Athens of the South,” but have never actually visited.


Springtime is when we start to clear out part of our lives and our homes. We Spring clean, we prepare for the summer months, but we also use this opportunity to take a break in our daily lives. Whether it is a Spring break, or it is taking that opportunity to truly unwind after the harsh winter months, or you are finally getting back on track after a hectic Christmas, Springtime is about new starts. 

This is why if you want to commemorate the beginnings of this wonderful season, we've got some of the best scents on offer. Spring is all about freshness, simplicity, and appreciating nature. This is why all our eco friendly candles are ideal if you want to make a change in your life.

And what better way to make the most of this than incorporating and new scent into your life?

What is important to you when it comes to the sense of Spring? Are you someone who likes the happy trails or oakiness of the right candle? Or are you someone who likes to invigorate your senses and get out into nature? Perhaps you might be someone who is all about the fresh fruits of Spring?
