It’s March, so why are there still flurries in D.C.? I’ve had just about enough of winter.
Instead, I’m dreaming about spring, which is just around the corner. Recent walks around the neighborhood show that while bulbs are poking their first shoots up, there are no flowers yet. Fortunately, scented candles are here to make up the difference. Floral scented candles, particularly those that smell like early spring blooms, make it feel like spring is already here.
Here are my picks for floral scented candles that will bring spring to your space.
|DW Home Cherry Blossom and Peony Candle
In Washington DC, nothing says spring like the arrival of the cherry blossoms. With this delicate pink candle, some of my favorite spring blossoms can be here a little early.
|Onlywax Soy Wax Lilac Candle
This all-natural votive contains little more than soy wax and real lilac oil, which makes it great for candle lovers with allergies. Breathe in and imagine the fragrant purple shrubs that will soon be in bloom.
|Seda France Classic Toile Hyacinth Pagoda Candle
In Easter pinks and violet blues, hyacinths are some of the first bulbs to blossom in my neighborhood. This candle’s fresh floral scent makes me feel like they’re already here, and the toile pagoda packaging makes it double as elegant decor.
