Candle Fragrances

Thinking about candles, my first thought is the scent. What is my mood? What season is it? Do I want something fruity? Am I looking for a floral scent? You get the idea, because I am sure you do it too.

When I started talking to Crystal and Morgan (co-owners of Ladyburg) about how they picked the scents – fragrances – of their candles, I figured that I was in for a really intense conversation. I thought they might have a super precise way of deciding what fragrances pair well with each other or that they did lots of research. I was wrong!

Deciding on the fragrances is all trial and error for Ladyburg.  The oils are lined up and the entire staff are invited to test different combinations – saying yes to some and no to others.

Clear winners are chosen – Oakmoss & Amber, Green Tea & Lemongrass, Red Ginger & Saffron – just to name a couple. (It is interesting to note that not all fragrances are candle safe and Ladyburg ensures that their choices are clean burning.)
