How to Pick Scented Candles Online When You Can't Smell Them
The problem with online candle shopping is that you can't smell them before making your purchase. This makes it difficult to find the perfect scent for your home, which is why we've created this guide.
Here are some tips from the experts at Goose Creek for how to pick a winner when you're online candle shopping.
Pick a Scent Group
There are many different types of candles, but the most popular scented candles come in four basic categories:
Fresh: Evoking images of flowers and morning dew, these scents often include fruity and floral notes that give off a light, feminine scent. For the feeling of walking through a rainforest, our Eucalyptus Rain Drops Large 3-Wick Candle is an excellent example of a fresh-scented candle.
Woodsy: These scents have earthy tones that remind us of the outdoors. They are often described as masculine with hints of pine, cedar or even smoky notes. Pick up this Bonfire & Blue Jeans Large 3-Wick Candle for a sense of what this scent group can offer.
Floral: These fragrances bring to mind images of gardens with their rich bouquets of flowers in bloom. They are usually sweet-smelling with hints of gardenia. Our Salt Water Orchid Large 3-Wick Candle is a perfect example of a floral-scented candle.
Exotic: The smells of exotic fragrances often mix herbs, spices or resins with sweet or chocolate notes. The rich, heavy scents are often balanced with fragrant amber or vanilla. This Honey Vanilla Large 3-Wick Candle will show your senses what exotic feels like.

Consider What Room Your Candle Will Be In
The first thing to think about is how big the room is.
In the bathroom, it's recommended to use something with a floral scent like this Blooming Magnolia Large Jar Candle. Even tight spaces with unpleasant smells can be brightened up in no time by floral-scented candles.
If you have a larger space like an open living room or kitchen, you will need something larger and longer lasting. Stronger, bolder scents like this Turkish Coffee Large 3-Wick Candle work great in larger rooms.
Scents for the Season or Occasion
Whether you're looking for a summer citrus or a winter pine, the time of year is a great way to decide what kind of scent to choose. Consider the season you're in, which holidays occur during that season and whose birthday is coming up. If you're purchasing a gift for someone else, consider their favorite fruits or plants, flowers and spices.
Use the Product Descriptions and Reviews
When you're not sure what scents to select, but you're locked onto a few potential choices, check out the descriptions beneath each product. It's a great way to gather information about the candles you're considering.
Next, peruse the reviews and see if customers are happy with their purchase. Reviews can be an invaluable resource for making up your mind if you're on the fence.
When you can't smell a candle in person, your only option is to gather as much information as you can from online descriptions, images and reviews. With this guide, you should have no trouble finding the perfect scent for your specific needs, even if you can't smell the candles beforehand.
