The best scented candles for a cosy living room

Your living room is one of the best places in your home to relax, unwind and put your feet up. One way that you can elevate your living room to create a truly warm and cosy environment is by creating an atmosphere through scent. Whether you’d love an autumnal ambience or prefer spa-like tranquillity, an effective way to introduce both comforting fragrances and romantic lighting is with a perfumed candle. We’ve compiled a list of the best scented fragrances to create just the right atmosphere in your living room. 

Warm vanilla fragrances

Vanilla is a member of the orchid family and is a native of South and Central America. It’s been treasured across the ages for its calming properties, by the Totonacs of Mexico’s coast to the Aztecs[1]. Due to its creamy yet delicately sweet scent, vanilla can often evoke memories of enjoying delicious baked goods. It’s a good addition to a variety of foods and other home products because of its calming properties and because this popular scent has actually been proven to elevate the feeling of joy and relaxation[2].
