Fragrance Descriptions & Scent Ratings

Being an online store can be challenging when it comes to selecting your fragrances, without being able to sniff first.

We have developed a “fragrance scale” that will let you, our customers know the depth of the scent. Here is your measurement scale:

Rating 5: Highly fragrant. Will scent a large space such as an open concept main floor area.
Rating 3-4: Very fragrant. Will scent a kitchen, living room or family room.

Rating 1-2: Softer scents, best suited for smaller spaces such as a bathroom, home office or den. This doesn’t mean that they arent fragrant when burning. ALL of our candles can be detected when lit, it simply means the fragrance notes are not as strong as a rating 5 candle.
