The Ultimate Guide to Layering Candle Scents

Spring and Summer are all about bringing fresh, vibrant energy into your home. We want to help you do that FMN style! Our 100% soy wax candles are designed to create a clean, sophisticated ambiance that fits perfectly with any decor. One trendy way to make your space truly yours is by layering candle scents based off your clean preferences! Let's dive into how you can master this secret technique with our Spring and Summer collection.

Why Layer Candle Scents?
Layering candle scents is like creating a signature fragrance for your home. It's all about blending different scents to reflect your personal style and set the perfect mood. Imagine walking into your living room and being greeted by a multi-dimensional aroma that makes you feel instantly relaxed and refreshed. That's the magic of scent layering.

How to Layer Candle Scents Like an FMN Pro

1. Start with a Simple (not complex) Base Scent:
Choose a candle with a subtle, versatile fragrance as your base. This scent will act as the foundation, providing a steady and calming backdrop. 

2. Add a Complimentary Middle Note:
Select a complementary scent that adds complexity without overpowering the base. Think floral or fruity notes that capture the essence of spring and summer. Our Honey & Clementine candle is an excellent choice, blending zesty citrus and honey with delicate floral undertones.

3. **Finish with a Top Note:
Complete your layered fragrance with a bold, captivating scent that leaves a lasting impression. Opt for something with a bit more intensity, like our Blue Volcano candle, which brings a refreshing, island vibe to your home.

Tips for Successful Scent Layering

- Experiment and Have Fun:
Don't be afraid to mix and match different combinations until you find the perfect blend. The beauty of scent layering lies in its endless creativity.

- Consider the Size of Your Space:
Larger rooms can handle stronger, more complex combinations, while smaller spaces benefit from lighter, more subtle layers.

- Pay Attention to Burn Times:
To ensure an even fragrance distribution, choose candles with similar burn times. If you want a long-lasting burn , definitely go for our 22 oz candle size that lasts up to 180 hours!
