There is a difference between heavily scented candles, richly scented candles and triple scented candles. Many people believe that all three mean that the candle has a strong scent that will last until the candle burns out completely.
For the most part, heavily scented candles means that a larger than normal amount of fragrance has been added to the wax in the candle making process. In general, one-half ounce is the normal amount of essential oil added to the melted wax. In heavily scented candles, this amount is tripled so that one and a half ounces are added.
If you buy heavily scented candles that are not wrapped, there is a very good chance that the scent will be gone from the candle long before the candle is burned out. This is because the scent from a heavily scented candle does evaporate into the air when it is exposed.
Another way of finding out whether or not a candle is heavily scented is to see whether or not you can smell the candle when you are standing a distance away from it. Most people that buy a heavy scented candle do not intend to burn it and want it mainly for its decorative effect.
You have many different options when buying heavily scented candles. There is a wide variety of colors and scents for you to choose from. If you are making your own heavy scented candles, then you can decide how much of the fragrance you want to include.
This sometimes requires some experimenting on your part and you can combine several different fragrances to achieve something completely unique. A heavily scented candle can also be custom made according to your specifications regarding the particular scent and color.
All kinds of candles are included in heavily scented candles. You can have tapered, pillar, votive and tealight candles with as heavy a scent as you wish. One thing you need to keep in mind when making or buying heavy scented candles is that some people are allergic to specific scents.
If you have guests coming over and you know that one or more of them is allergic to scents, then you should remove the heavily scented candle until after they leave. You also have to keep this in mind when choosing to give a heavily scented candle as a gift.
Heavily scented candles help to really cover up smells of cooking or smoke. You don’t have to worry that guests will be able to tell exactly what you had for dinner or that you accidentally burned something in the kitchen when you have a heavy scented candle around.
For even greater effect, you can light the heavily scented candles and let all different scents mix together to create a unique atmosphere. If you have candles with a variety of scents, it might be a good idea to try this first, just to see what the result will be. It may not be the best effect in the world.
