6 Moments to Light a Scented Candle


There's something about lighting a candle that has the ability to make any moment special. That explains why I have so many throughout our home, including many of my all time favourites from Glasshouse Fragrances. Candles and diffusers have a unique ability to add a touch of sophistication and luxury to any room, with my current go-to being the new Glasshouse collection, The Hamptons (available now!). The beautiful notes of teak and petitgrain combine to create the perfect backdrop for our beachside home. And so, today I'm sharing with you six moments to light a scented candle (as if you need an excuse!).

1. Downtime. Is there anything better than taking a moment after a busy day to light a candle, get cosy and relax with a good book or your favourite magazine? Now, more than ever before, I understand the important of taking some downtime, which is only made more leisurely with a beautiful fragrance.

2. In the office. I spend the majority of my time in the office, working away in front of my computer (and sipping on a fresh cup of coffee, of course). One of the things I do to lift the mood and keep me motivated is to light my favourite Glasshouse candle. There's something about the flicker of a candle and the delicate scent that works wonders during the 9-5.

3. Dinner party. Whenever we have guests over for dinner, we always light candles to create an elegant and welcoming atmosphere. I also can't help but use The Hamptons Fragrance Diffuser, which fills our home with a soft, yet luxurious note. Trust me when I say, it's a surefire way to impress your guests!

4. Weekend away. Whenever Brad and I find ourselves on a weekend away down south, you can bet there's a Glasshouse candle wrapped up in my suitcase for a cosy night in. What can I say? It just wouldn't be as special without one.

5. Date night in. If there's one thing I love to do, it's enjoy a romantic night at home, which is never complete without the subtle warm glow of candles throughout the room. Oh yes, I'm a sucker for romance.

6. Pamper session. And yes, I did save the best for last. Every once in a while, when I get the chance, I like to take a moment to pamper myself, and a pamper session isn't complete without the understated luxury of a fragrant Glasshouse candle (picture: a warm bath, face mask, champagne and a beautiful fragrance to help you relax, all just for you). Sounds perfect, doesn't it?

When is your favourite time to enjoying your favourite scented candle?

  1. I love lighting a candle in my bedroom before I start to make dinner, so that when it's bedtime my room smells dreamy! I'm always loving the TAHAA collection from Glasshouse!



  2. I love lighting candles too, the Glasshouse ones are beautiful. I love how so many are destination inspired- there have been a few that have taken me back to memories of my travels. We were just on your street corner visiting friends this week, we should have made time to go down to the beach, it looks so lovely!
