No, candles aren't just for cozy winter nights in. They're also summertime friendly when you pick the right fragrances. Just think...warm breeze blowing through your open windows and the scent of a heady and leafy floral gets caught in the wind. That's why I consider these candles absolute staples, as they're sure to take any room from blah to "ahhh."

My personal favorites for the warmer months go something like this: Diptyque Baies, Diptyque 34, and Antica Farmacista Damascena Rose, Orris & Oud*

Diptyque Baies is pretty easy to read and such a well-loved fragrance, that I think it would be hard to go wrong scenting a space with this. It smells of a fresh and rich boquet of roses and is sweetened by the fragrant foliage of blackcurrent leaves. Then there's Dipqytue 34; if you're into the milky-muskiness of fig leaves, mosses, and the aforementioned blackcurrent leaves then this spicier scent is one to try. Also, that handcrafted porcelain jar is sure to become quite a beautiful storage item if you feel inclined to up-cycle. 

Antica Farmacista Damascena Rose, Orris & Oud is another scent centered around roses, but this version is a bit more tart and powdery, thanks to the inclusion of amber, musk, and cashmere. The throw with this is particularly strong, but never too overpowering. The perfect choice for a large room or apartment. 

What are your favorite summer appropriate candles?
