Why Can't You Smell Your Candle? Here Are 3 Possible Reasons Why!

‹  All Posts

As a scent lover, I know how disappointing it can be when you can't smell your favorite candle. But don't worry, it's not you or the candle! After some research, I discovered three reasons why your candle might not smell as strong as you'd like. Check out these common culprits that can interfere with your candle's scent.

It hasn't been burning long enough

Confession time: I used to think that burning candles for a short while was enough. Turns out, you need to burn them for at least two hours! A full melt pool ensures that the scent is strong enough to create a cozy atmosphere. Lesson learned! So, next time you light your candle, stick around for the long haul. Your nose will thank you later!

Size matters

Living in a small downtown apartment with my family and pets, I've learned that candle size matters when it comes to scent. For smaller spaces like mine, 3.5 oz to 5 oz candles are ideal, while 6 oz to 10 oz candles work well for medium-sized spaces.

If you're burning a candle in a large open area and can't smell it, try moving it to a smaller space like a bathroom or bedroom. Keep this tip in mind when choosing the perfect candle for your home!

As someone who lives for a cozy home, I know the power of a good scent. But, if you've been burning the same candle scent for too long, it's time to switch things up! Try a different aroma to keep your senses engaged, or step out of the room and come back to reset your olfactory system.

It makes a huge difference! I love swapping out my candle scents with the changing seasons, and with Grow Fragrance's refillable candles, it's a breeze. No need to buy a whole new candle every time, just pop in a new scent and you're good to go! It's an eco-friendly way to keep things fresh and exciting in your home.
