The Scent of Summer

Summer is here! And what better way to beat the heat then to stay inside with your favorite scent. What!? You don’t have a favorite scent? Well that’s perfect, we have some of our summer favorites for you to check out.

One of the favorites here at Scents & Sprays is Salt City’s Garden Lilac. The lilac, lavender and jasmine combined, form an amazing aroma. It’s not like any other floral we have. The fragrant perfume of lilacs reminds us of that first bloom in the garden. The floral scents mingle together in perfect harmony. The Garden Lilac scent is available in the 26 oz. jar, which burns 120-140 hours. The melter tiles burn about 50-60 hours and the diffuser lasts about 1-2 months.


This is one of the best scented candles! The delicious juicy pineapple scent with just a hint of cilantro satisfies every sense. The Pineapple Cilantro frosted jar candle is the best selling fragrance by Illume. Illume is known for its vibrancy in both fragrance and color. Their candles are part soy based and are blended with essential oils. It is available in the 8.5 oz. frosted jar and also the 3×6 pillar candle . The cotton and paper-core wicks, make these clean-burning candles which have delighted and inspired for more than 10 years.


Another Summer scent we love here at Scents & Sprays is the Fiji by Archipelago. It is an exotic, sweet scent. The coconut, sugar cane and lemon leaf meld together flawlessly. If this is what Fiji smells like, then sign us up. It is available in a beautiful glass jar that burns about 60 hours. Definitely a scent you wont regret trying!

We told you some of our Summer favorites, what are yours?

Is it almost Easter already?

Valentine’s Day has passed and Easter is right around the corner. Everywhere you look, pastel colors and Easter bunnies surround you. The family will be gathering to decorate eggs and enjoy the occasion together, so it’s time to get the home ready! What better way to do this then with your favorite scent?

Candles are the perfect way to get everyone in that warm, springtime mood. Salt City’s Pink Lemonade will add a bright, pink touch to the living room. Archipelago Monogram candles come in a variety of fragrances and are perfect as gifts. The light pastel colors are ideal for this time of year, and with the monogrammed letter on both the candle and the box, it is a great decorative piece!

My personal favorite at this time of year is Illume’s Pineapple Cilantro. The scent is extremely fruity and tropical and the beautiful green color makes my home that much brighter. Whatever fragrance you choose to have in your home, candles will create a happy environment and cause every guest who enters to ask what smells so amazing!

So this post, let’s go a little off the topic of candles: What is your family’s favorite Easter pastime? My personal favorite is when we all gather to decorate the eggs. All the nieces and nephews are there, and in the end very few eggs look professional quality. In fact, most of them are a complete mess. But then, that’s what makes it memorable.

January Top 5 Fragrances

Top 5 Fragrances at Scents & Sprays

The customers have spoken! These are the top five selling fragrances for the month of January!

Trapp Orange Vanilla. Big shock with this one. Consistently the best seller, people can’t seem to get enough of it! This is one of the few citrus scents that sells just as well through the winter as it does through the summer.

Diptyque Feu De Bois. This one is a wonderful winter fragrance. Diptyque put every effort into making this candle smell like a fireplace full of burning embers, and they got incredibly close to the real deal. It’s easy to feel warm and cozy under a blanket while this candle is lit!

Salt City Cedarwood Vanilla. The perfect candle to enjoy when it’s cold outside. Cedarwood mixed with vanilla? It feels like bringing a warm and cozy bakery directly into your home. The vanilla adds that scent of baking, then throw in the nice, warm cedarwood and you really can’t go wrong.

Votivo Red Currant. This is another one that tends to always make the list. Customer seem to love this fragrance, and tend to buy more then one at a time. I personally can’t count the number of times I have had a customer come into the store and make a beeline for the Red Currant.

The Thymes Goldleaf Home Fragrance Mist. I was a bit shocked to see this one on the list. Don’t get me wrong, this is one of my favorite Thymes products, it is just a new addition to our top 5. For anyone who loves rose, this is a definite must have.
