How to Pick out the Perfect Scent as a Gift

So, the holidays are coming up and that means so much needs to happen between now and then! Possible trips need to be planned, decorations need to be found, and, most of all, gifts need to be bought! We all know there’s no easier gift to give than a cozy, luxury candle but, here at TLC, we want to help you take your gifted candles a step further to make sure they’ll be something your loved one is sure to cherish and enjoy.

The key to picking out the perfect candle for someone has to do with three elements: The scent, the vessel, and the quality! At TLC, we have you covered on all fronts!

All TLC candles are made from soy to practically guarantee a quality burn and this is only enhanced by the variety of beautiful vessels that TLC scents come in such as our classic white or black double-wick vessels, our gorgeous dough bowl candles, our adorable TLC travel tins, or now our new three-wick holiday vessel! When thinking about your loved one that you want to give this to, think about which vessel would go best in their home. What is their aesthetic like? Would they want something small and simple? Are they always on the go so they would need something portable? Or would they like something larger and bolder that they can use to compliment the rest of their home décor? Scroll through our different vessels on our website to determine which one will be perfect to see under the tree!

The final step in picking out the perfect candle for someone is the most important part, picking the perfect scent! This can be tricky depending on how well you know someone. If you’re close with them, what are some of their favorite things? Are they a summer or a fall person? Would they like something flowery and refreshing or rich and cozy? What are some of the scents of candles that you see in their house already? What does their perfume or cologne smell like? Think through all of these questions can give you an idea of which scent may suit them best! If they’re someone who likes to keep things like and refreshing, try out one of our summer scents such as Grapefruit Mojito or Tomato Garden. If they’d like something with flowers look at our Pillow Talk peony candle or our Rose candle. For something more festive and seasonal, try our Hibernate or Gatherings candles.

If you’re not as close with this person, some old reliable scents that they’re sure to love are our Vintage Flannel, Amber Noir, Seaside, or Belgian Linen candles!

We hope these hints and ideas helped you pick out the perfect gift for someone special! May the candle force be with you and good luck this holiday season!

When we say we have candles that are “the best smells from the farm”, we’re not talking about the animal barn or what’s in the dirt in the fields. We’re talking about what’s beyond that, the roots of farming. Fresh produce, leathery musk, and the flowery smell that can only be found out in the fresh air. That’s all at the core of farm life and, for so many people, that’s home.
