How to Choose the Right Candle for Your Space

Whiskey and Woof Luxury Living Room Needs How Many Candles

Candles are a beautiful addition to any home decor. They can provide a cozy, sexy and inviting atmosphere, improve air quality, and promote relaxation and well-being. However, with so many different types of candles on the market, it can be challenging to choose the right one for your space. In this blog post, we will explore how to choose the right candle for your space.

  1. Consider the Purpose of the Candle: The first step in choosing the right candle for your space is to consider its purpose. Do you want to create a relaxing and calming atmosphere? Are you looking for a candle to help purify the air in your home? Do you want to add a decorative accent to your living space? Are you looking to set a romantic mood for yourself? Dreamy to inspire the next chapter of your mood board? Perhaps you are getting ready for a date, or bringing one home. Once you have identified the purpose of your candle, you can begin to narrow down your options.

  2. Choose the Right Fragrance: The fragrance of a candle can have a significant impact on the ambiance of your space. Some fragrances are known for their ability to promote relaxation and reduce stress levels. Other fragrances, such as citrus and peppermint, can provide an energizing boost. When choosing a candle fragrance, consider the purpose of the candle and the mood you want to create in your space like our No. 69 Summer of Sex, a scent so fresh you want to get naughty. 

  3. Consider the Size of the Candle: The size of the candle is another important factor to consider when choosing the right candle for your space. Larger candles are great for larger rooms, as they provide a more significant source of light and fragrance. Smaller candles are ideal for smaller spaces, such as bathrooms and bedrooms. When choosing the size of your candle, consider the size of your room and the desired ambiance. Our votives are perfect for filling a loo, however you'll need 4 to 5 cross burning for a larger space like an open living room. Have high ceilings? While a living room in an apartment should fill with a 9-12 ounce candle, a higher ceiling will mean 2-3 would be wise. 

  4. Choose the Right Type of Wax The type of wax used in a candle can also impact its performance and fragrance. Beeswax candles are known for their ability to purify the air and emit negative ions. Soy wax candles are a great eco-friendly option, but some doctors say cancer patients should avoid them. Coconut wax and blends are known for their strong fragrance and long burn time.

  5. Choose the Right Candle Holder : The candle holder is an essential component of your candle. It not only provides a decorative accent but also helps to protect your surfaces from heat and wax. When choosing a candle holder, consider the style of your room and the type of candle you are using. Glass holders are great for larger candles, as they allow the flame to be seen from all angles. Metal holders are great for smaller candles and can add a touch of elegance to any space. With a 9 oz candle or larger, Whiskey & Woof orders come with a coaster to provide a safe landing spot for your candles. 

  6. Consider the Season: The season can also play a role in choosing the right candle for your space. In the summer, you may want to opt for lighter fragrances, such as the groundbreaking florals for spring (wink, wink) or citrus to wake your body like No. 16 Fira (blood orange, bergamot and juniper berries.) In the fall and winter, you may prefer warmer fragrances, such as musks like our No.17 Luxuriate, a cashmere musk and whiskey combination. When choosing a candle for the season, consider the mood and ambiance you want to create in your space.

  7. Choose a High-Quality Candle: Finally, when choosing a candle for your space, it is essential to choose a high-quality candle. High-quality candles are made from natural ingredients. They burn longer and provide a more robust fragrance than lower quality candles. While high-quality candles may be more expensive, they are worth the investment for the benefits they provide.

Choosing the right candle for your space is a process that requires careful consideration of its purpose, fragrance, size, wax type, candle holder, season, and quality. By taking the time to choose the right candle, you can create a welcoming and inviting atmosphere in your home that promotes relaxation and well-being.
