What better way to usher the dull, grey and cold winter air out of your home than with some fresh and invitingly green scents that bring the spring in? Think of the warmer and brighter days that make you feel hopeful and optimistic as you fill your lungs with soft aromas wafting through the sky on your morning commute. As nature renews itself and comes alive again with blossoming trees that gently sway in warmer breezes and the sweetest fruits grow colourful and juicy, how great would it be to heighten this sensory experience in your home? 
Think: bergamot, honeysuckle and soft linen…Go {candle} crazy with decorative aromatherapy this spring-time and inhale some of the most refreshing scents that’ll excite all your senses and open up your living space. 1. Overose Nudesse Candle 

Evoking warmth and freshness, {Overose}'s smooth and ultra-creamy rose scent travels through your home with the same delicacy that morning dew drops would on pink petals. This picturesque and arguably #shelfie worthy candle instantly boosts your mood by inviting sweet and honeyed from the fresh flowers, in. Lingering in the air for a long time and not just a long time, this super-chic mauve-toned wax candle would make the perfect fixture in your bedroom, living room or bathroom.

2. Replica - Lazy Sunday MorningBed hair, last night’s shoes somewhere by the front door and ruffled sheets being gently kissed by the pockets of sunlight peering through the curtains. It’s that time of the week again. Luxurious powerhouse Maison Margiela have created a scent-gasmic line of fragrances within the {Replica} range. The same brand that blessed our noses with {By The Fireplace} and {Jazz Club} have now encapsulated what a {Lazy Sunday Morning} feels like in a candle. With delicate top notes of white musk and lily of the valley, and middle notes of rose, iris and orange blossom, this floral yet woody candle is the perfect sensory experience for a light morning in spring. Spark the wick while you tidy up the Saturday night’s shenanigans and reset for the week ahead…
3. NEST New York Amalfi Lemon & Mint

At the single strike of a match, you can teleport to the warm and picturesque view over the Italian Amalfi coast. Beautifully housed in the bespoke glass jar that {NEST New York} is recognised for, this is the ultimate scent you need to summon the spring-time vibes in your living area. Fused with fresh zesty lemon, orange bergamot and mint, this {citrusy} candle burns evenly and wholly to fill the air with re-energising aromas from the outdoors. Built on the principle that a great scent can totally elevate your space and mood, this holiday-in-a-jar invites you to feel the gentle warmth of the Italian sun caressing your skin, allowing your senses to soak up the optimism that spring has to offer.

4. Malin + Goetz Bergamot Candle

From hard-working skin care to luxury candles and scents perfectly designed to add that extra bit of je ne sais quoi to your home, Malin + Goetz have created Bergamot to do just that. Think: ceiling-to-floor windows, open spaces, fresh linens and a clean desk. This fresh, citrus-y blend of bergamot, bell pepper and grapefruit is bursting with soft spring-time scents that’ll leave you feeling relaxed and recharged — the perfect energy we need in the warmer months! With a slow and all-consuming burn up to 80 hours, set this waxy goodness ablaze to welcome a zen-like vibe into your personal space. Ready, steady — relax!
