Experiment by Combining Candle Scents

Chocolate Cake by Teodora VlaicuRecently I bought a few candle fragrance oils that are being discontinued. They were basically surprise bags, so you never know what you’re going to get.

Anyway, I wasn’t crazy about “Buddy’s Bake Shop” but I thought it might smell good with a bit of hazelnut and chocolate. It’s divine!

Hazelnut chocolate cake just doesn’t sound exotic enough, so I’m working on a name. I’m sure it’s been done before, but it’s still fun combining candle scents.

Other Candle Fragrance Combinations

I also had some iced tea candle fragrance oil and added lemon to that. Another combination was with rice flower and jasmine. I’m pleased with it because it smells a bit like my favorite floral perfume Anaïs Anaïs.

Finally, I mixed lavender, pine and citrus together for a floral woods type of smell. There’s still a ton of peach fragrance oil here, but I’m not feeling it.  Does anyone have any scent combo ideas?

If you want to try blending your own candle fragrance oils and don’t know where to start, try The Candle Witch’s Scent Mixing Chart or Scent Mixing Ideas at the Candle Cauldron.

    Re: Candle name for Hazel Nut chocolate cake…how about “Better Than Sex Cake candle” since that is pretty popular and might be fun!
