Take Notes: a Scented Candle for Every Room
As cooler climes have us tucking ourselves away indoors, there's no better time to light your home in the warming comfort of Liberty's latest collection of luxury scented candles. Here, we find that perfect mood setting for every room of the house
There is so much more to the science of our collective candle obsession than meets the eye. We love how they look - that’s the first thing. Whether it’s an elegantly minimal aesthetic that compliments and therefore elevates any decor choice, or a maximal enamelled vessel that sets the tone for the room semblance in itself, we are often drawn to how they look. How they smell is critical, of course, for evoking a mood or harnessing a memory, or evening setting the perfect scene. And much like Liberty's first drop of luxury candles, this new collection of mood-lifting candles offers an aroma-filled flicker for every room, allowing you to hygge your home with the perfect balance. Here are the candles you should be lighting in every room...
A Crisp Breeze for the Hallway
As the bridge between rooms, the hallway should always invoke a welcoming aura so it’s best to opt for an inviting, calm fragrance such as Stately Bouquet. With base notes of blackberries and cashmere, this candle will wrap you and your guests up in a fresh fruity musk as you move from room to room.
Print note: This Stately Bouquet watercolour print is inspired by photorealistic Dutch paintings of extravagant blooms in ornate vases, making it the perfect f loral fragrance to line your walls.
A Cosy Scent in the Living Room
As the heart of the home, the living room serves multiple functions, but ultimately it should be your cosy retreat; a space you can completely unwind and relax in, which is why setting a warm welcoming mood is essential. Nothing creates a cosy ambience quite like candlelight, so opt for an intimate and inviting scent like Hazy Days, which will cocoon you in its stress-reducing citrus and rich patchouli scent - ideal for both evenings alone and with guests.
Print note: The blurry floral silhouettes in this magical AW20 collection print reveal an inherent softness creating a dreamlike botanical vista perfect for perching atop your coffee table or mantlepiece.
A Romantic Ambience for the Bedroom
As a sanctuary of relaxation, your bedroom requires an intimate, calming ambience you can fully unwind in, which is why your bedroom fragrance should not only be fresh but relaxing and sensual too. Danuna’s notes of sandalwood and violet leaf will fill your room with a botanical aroma of natural musk and warm romance perfect for time spent on your night-time rituals.
Print note: Inspired by a 1987 Liberty artwork, Danuna features elegant flowers and acanthus leaves in a symmetrical, colourful pattern with a botanical, natural tone that will compliment your bedside table.
A Fresh Breeze for the Cloakroom
Say hello to cleanliness and freshness in your cloakroom with an uplifting, powerful scent which, luckily for you, is exactly what you’ll receive with Liberty’s Aloha Betsy Candle offers. With notes of lush fig, lily-of-the-valley and sweet pea, this candle will blanket all that visit this room in a fresh, fruitful aroma, carrying your home fragrance with them into the night.
Print note: The much-loved Liberty Classic Betsy has been given a quirky, tropical makeover in this enchanting rendition, Aloha Betsy. Bright blooms and paradise palms make this the ideal cloakroom print.
