A guide to choosing the perfect scented candle gift online

In a world that often feels like we rush from one thing to the next, finding moments of calm and relaxation is essential. If you’re searching for the ideal gift for a group collection, scented candles offer a way to create a soothing ambiance for your recipient.

How do you choose a scented gift for someone else when you can't smell it in person? Don’t worry, we've compiled a few tips to help you choose the ideal scented candle gift.

Consider the Recipient's Preferences

When choosing a scented candle as a gift, consider the recipient's tastes and preferences. Think about their favourite scents or any aromas they particularly enjoy. If they wear a perfume, does it have floral notes, such as jasmine or rose, or are they drawn to warm and cosy fragrances like vanilla or cinnamon?

Descriptions are a great starting point

Aery Living provides detailed descriptions of their scented candles in the GiftRound Store, including the fragrance notes and the ambiance they aim to evoke.

“Filled with fragrance to inspire feelings of thick, lustrous woodland and cosy log cabins.  Patchouli and nutmeg essential oils promote relaxation and relieve stress, while notes of orange lift your mood.”

These descriptions are carefully crafted to get a sense of what each candle has to offer and provide keywords that resonate with the recipient's preferences, such as "fresh," "earthy," or "citrusy."

Opt for Versatile Scents

If you're unsure of the recipient's specific scent preferences, opt for candles with fragrances that are universally appealing and are perfect for creating a serene atmosphere in any space.

Aery Living's ‘Sleep Happy’, ‘Eternal Optimist’, ‘Happy Space’ and more are available in the GiftRound Store and are the perfect versatile scented gift at the end of your group collection.

Consider the Season

The time of year can also influence your choice of scented candle. For example, during the cooler months, warm and spicy fragrances like cinnamon, clove, and pine are popular choices that evoke a sense of cosiness.  Aery Living’s ‘Wonderland’ and ‘Nordic Cedar’ are perfect for autumn and winter group gifts.

In contrast, lighter and more refreshing scents, such as citrus or floral, are perfect for spring and summer.

Gift your recipient ‘Parisian Rose’ or ‘Japanese Garden’ if you’re creating a group collection in the spring or summer.  Keeping the season in mind when selecting a scented candle, ensures it aligns with the recipient's current surroundings and mood.

Pay Attention to Presentation

Presentation matters when it comes to online group gift-giving. GiftRound has carefully curated all the items available in our store to offer beautifully packaged gifts your recipient will love.

Opt for consciously created candles
