Even though Spring will be here soon and the air will be filled with all the florals your nose (and allergies) can handle, having a few carefully selected candles around the house can create a complex scent profile in your home that’s not overwhelming and doesn’t require a bottle of Benadryl to enjoy.
Perhaps you’re a lavender purist or like to sweeten up the air with dessert-inspired scents. Maybe the scent of fresh cut grass or a big bouquet of roses tickle your fancy and you tend to stick with floral scented candles. Or maybe you just want everything to smell effortlessly clean and fresh without having to fold laundry all day or rub dryer sheets on your couch. Whatever your preference, your favorite scent can reveal a few things about your personality. Before you start mapping out your new candle and diffuser plan (we all have one of those, right?), let’s take a look at a few of your favorite scents and what they say about you with some help from the folks at SheKnows. Once you’ve decided, the fine people at SampleHouse can help you pick out which Trapp fragrance is best for you.
Surprise! You’re a romantic. Embrace it, because you keep the rest of us grounded. You believe in love, you see the best in people, you keep your family close, and you like to emphasize comfort in your home over any other utility. People who are drawn to floral scents tend to be caring, kind, an think with their heart.

We know your type, lover of the lavender. You go for the purple when it comes to your favorite scent because you crave its stress relieving and calming capabilities. Capabilities?! That’s just a fancy word for magical powers. Lavender certainly seems to be magic when your demanding schedule and job-juggling leaves you in need of a big “Ahhhh” moment at the end of your very long day. You may be busy, but you know how to relax. Good for you, lavender lover, good for you. We’ll whisper because you’re probably asleep in your lavender-scented sheets.
Your Trapp fragrance: Lavender de Provence, Fig and Mimosa, Lemongrass Verbena
We hear there’s a bit of a dichotomy between the lemon people and the orange people. Lemon lovers tend to prefer a rigidly clean home and crisp, clean colors like white and yellow. Lemonheads also enjoy being outside, working in the yard, or just taking it all in during a leisurely walk. On the other hand, orange aficionados are perfectly okay with a little clutter because they’re home is just so darn cozy. Orange lovers also tend to calm, inviting people who like to be surrounded by friends.
Your Trapp fragrance: Orange and Vanilla, Lemongrass Verbena, Pink Grapefruit, Guava and Mango, Yuzu & Bonsai
Clean Cotton or Fresh Linen
There you are, you unique little snowflake. So you bypassed the sugar cookies and walked right on by the rose bush, huh? Don’t worry, you’re perfectly normal. You just prefer the simpler things in life and prefer to have nondescript scents that just hang out in the background instead of hosting the party. You’re still energetic and ambitious, but your freshly laundered candles speak to your softer side, which is just as inspiring. Congratulations! You’re complex.

Well hello! We’re glad you could take a break from hiking over that mountain pass. Have a seat in your oversized, rustic leather chair while we tell you something you already know: you enjoy natural, powerful, woodsy scents because you’re natural, powerful, and woodsy. You recycle, you ride your bike to work, you drink wheat beer, and you probably own more than one vest. When you return from the organic farmer’s market, you’ll light your woodsy candle because that’s what you want to do. Go on, adventure seeker, we’ll let you know when lunch is ready.
