The Art of Fragrance Layering

Candles are a simple and effective way to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere in your home. By layering different fragrances, you can customize the aroma to suit your mood or occasion. Fragrance layering your candles involves burning two or more candles together, creating a unique scent that's personalized to your liking. In this blog post, we'll discuss the art of fragrance layering candles and provide some tips on how to create the perfect ambiance in your home.


Layering Techniques:

Once you’ve selected your candles, it’s time to start layering! The most straightforward technique involves lighting two or more candles simultaneously, allowing the fragrances to blend together. Consider placing them in different areas of the room to allow the fragrance to spread throughout your space. You can also alternate between candles, lighting one and then the other, to create a more complex aroma. Additionally, consider burning candles of different sizes and or types such as votives or tea lights, to add depth to the fragrance. Scent Hippie’s candles are handcrafted with our three-tier fragrance layering system offering you a top, middle, and base layering of fragrance to create a beautiful, full, harmonious, and sophisticated aroma. We combine unusual and unexpected fragrances for a unique combination like no other.

Placement and Safety:

To ensure the safety of our candles, prioritize their placement. Light them on a flat, heat-resistant surface and keep them away from flammable objects, drafts, open windows, or any other unsafe areas in which they could be a hazard. It's important to create a safe environment to avoid any potential dangers. Remember to always supervise your candles and never leave them unattended while burning.
