Know Their Preferences
One of the most meaningful ways to show you care is by selecting a fragrance that resonates with your loved one's taste. Ideally, you already have an inkling of their scent preferences. Subtly ask or observe their surroundings during your next visit. Do they have a collection of perfumes that give you a clue? Paying attention to these details can help you choose a candle that will delight them. You can also take the fragrance finder quiz on the site to help you narrow down your selection.
Understanding the Fragrance Wheel
To make an informed choice, it's beneficial to acquaint yourself with the major categories of the fragrance wheel: Floral, Amber, Woody, and Fresh. Each category offers a distinct olfactory experience, and knowing your loved one's preferences within these categories can guide your decision.
When in Doubt, Choose Fresh
If you're uncertain about their scent preferences, I often recommend fresh fragrances. Unlike Ambers, Florals, and Woodies, which can be polarizing, Fresh scents have a wide appeal. The Fresh category includes subcategories like water, aromatic, green, and citrus, each offering a unique sensory journey.
Regal Home Fragrance Recommendations
Within the Regal Home Fragrance collection, I have carefully curated scents that fall under the Fresh category, making them excellent choices for gift-giving. Here are a few of my top recommendations:
- King - This scent captures the essence of clean air and water, evoking the sensation of breathing in salty ocean air with a redwood forest in the distance. While it incorporates woody and amber notes to ground it, King is predominantly a Fresh fragrance.
- Duchess - Perfect for a sunny day outdoors, Duchess combines fern, bergamot, lemon, and lime, emphasizing the Green and Citrus subcategories. It's a crowd-pleaser and my go-to recommendation for those unsure of their recipient's preferences.
- Countess - Known for its relaxing and calming qualities, Countess is a bestseller for a reason. While it leans Fresh due to the aromatic lemongrass, the addition of coconut brings a touch of fruitiness, and sandalwood introduces dry woods to the mix. Countess is a personal favorite, and it's a fragrance that people can't seem to get enough of.
When it comes to gifting, it's the thought and care you put into the selection that truly matters. With Regal Home Fragrance candles, you can offer a sensory experience that will be cherished and remembered. Whether you choose King, Duchess, or Countess, you're sharing the gift of ambiance and comfort, making every moment a little more special.
