We’re all ready for a fresh start and new opportunities, and so many of us are welcoming the spring season with open arms. Even nature gets excited for the season change: if you’ve ever walked outside and smelled a distinct, earthy smell, that’s your nose catching spring’s naturally-occurring signature scent!
There are plenty of other fragrances that are signature to the spring season. Botanical themes are paramount to shaping spring scents. Verdant plant life and lush florals are most often blended together, and emerging trends for this year's spring fragrances include cactus, pear, and Ginko varieties. For the floral and fresh families, tropical jungle flora continue to expand influence, as do the more green, earthy florals associated with the desert. You may find traditional, tired fragrances (think rose) replaced with exciting newcomers like cactus. Read below to find your spring scent-spiration!
Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking.
With stunningly beautiful, large fragrant petals, the magnolia flower yields a nuanced aroma of creamy citrus and perfumed florals. Considered a classic floral fragrance, the scent of magnolia is often paired with other light blooms to create a complete floral bouquet. If the sound of magnolia interests you, we recommend reaching for our Magnolia Eucalyptus Wax Melts. Velvet magnolia petals drift over herbaceous greens and silver eucalyptus wrapped in soft elements of sugared lily and powdery musk. Symbolizing perseverance, the magnolia flower is perfect for the transition from the winter of 2020 to the spring of 2021.
Honeysuckle produces a trumpet-shaped flower arranged in pairs. Wild honeysuckle is most often referenced for its vibrant yellow color but can also be found in white, pastel, yellow, orange, red, and pink color varieties. They have a strong, sweet aroma that is especially prominent during the night. Sharing the same signature yellow color, the yuzu fruit is also making its rise in the spring fragrance market. A citrus fruit of east Asian origin, the yuzu fruit smells like a mix of grapefruit and orange, although notably less pungent. It's both slightly tart and slightly sweet, fresh, and light. Pair the two fragrances together in our Honeysuckle Yuzu Wax Melts, and you'll detect fragrance notes of fresh berry, honeysuckle, musk, yuzu, and florals!
For hundreds of years, the jasmine flower has been a symbol of love and affection. We think a jasmine-inspired fragrance is the perfect way to bring symbolism into your spring self-care routine. But this fragrance doesn't come about so easily. It takes over 8,000 jasmine flowers to produce one gram (one ml.) of jasmine absolute oil. Furthermore, the jasmine flower is a night owl, releasing its fragrance exclusively at night after the sun has set, and more potently when the moon is waxing towards fullness.
On the other hand, the fragrance of the Bergamot fruit has the bright sunniness typical of citrus, but with a unique floral and spicy edge. It's tart, acidic, and highly fragrant. Bergamot is what gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive scent. Embrace the blend of these two fragrances with our Jasmine Bergamot Wax Melts.
Accessing peace, quieting the mind, and restoring a sense of calm are all modern-day challenges we face in this ever-evolving world. The medicinal benefits of lavender essential oil have been used in aromatherapy for years, and now you can enjoy the benefits in your own home. Lavender is one of the most widely grown essential oil crops in the world and is subsequently one of the most popular and versatile fragrances. Experience the benefits of lavender essential oils when you melt our blended Lavender Cactus Wax Melts. Melt our Lavender Cactus Wax Melts and you'll detect fragrances of prickly pear cactus, wild greenery, and delicate canyon blooms intermingled with blushed lavender accents over glowing amber and enduring white musk. The perfect pick for spring!
