One of our favorite parts of the spring season is discovering the latest home fragrance trends for the new year! Interestingly, two very different types of scents are trending in 2017 so far: rich, woodsy scents and simple, clean scents.
To help you keep up with what’s hot in candles this year, check out our handy guide to our favorite woodsy and clean scents to burn in 2017.
Teak & Oud Wood by Trapp
Surprisingly sweet for such an earthy scent, this pick from Trapp might just be the perfect combination of hard and soft, with the rich sophistication of teak and oud wood combined with the subtle spice of Tonka bean and Madagascar vanilla. This scent is definitely a must-have this year.
Amber & Bergamot by Trapp
This candle should come with a warning, because you’ll want to cancel any plans that involve leaving your house once you start burning it. Sultry, sweet and impossibly rich but not overpowering, Amber & Bergamot will become a year-round staple in your home.
Glamour World by Tyler Candle Company
With sandalwood, vanilla, and rich violet, Glamour World can only be described with one word: luxurious. It strikes the perfect balance between masculine and feminine, which means it’s a perfect gift for the upcoming wedding season.
Hippie Chick by Tyler Candle Company
Hippie Chick is gorgeously strong and makes a great “special occasion” scent. Heavy with French vanilla and exotic patchouli, Hippie Chick is perfect for lovers of woodsy scents who also like a little bit of spice and mystery.
Water by Trapp
Can you get any cleaner than water? Trapp’s Water fragrance is the ultimate in clean, fresh scents. It works well in any room (especially the bathroom), and provides those who smell it with new energy for every one of its 50 hours of burn time.
Fine Linen by Trapp
This scent captures the clean lines of fresh fabrics and florals — perfect for spring. If you haven’t tried Fine Linen yet, pick up a few candles in this scent and breathe new life into your home this season.
Bamboo by Nest
Ever been in the jungle after a fresh, cleansing rain? That’s what this fragrance evokes. Bamboo has notes of floral, citrus and fresh greenery, plus, of course, the gorgeous packaging you can expect from Nest. This is an absolute home fragrance staple, and it deserves a spot at the top of your candle rotation.
French Market by Tyler Candle Company
A gardenia-based scent with notes of fresh tuberose and bright greenery, French Market is a surprisingly light, fresh fragrance despite its floral notes. Light this candle, throw open your windows and enjoy the fresh scents of spring.
Fresh Geranium & Mint by Aromatique
This blend of geranium leaves, mint and lemongrass scents is reminiscent of a cold glass of iced tea on the first warm day of spring. The refreshing scent even works as a great transition into summer.
White Amaryllis by Aromatique
Amaryllis is one of those scents that tends to make people say, “What is that? I need it!” It’s familiar because it’s a floral, but it’s also clean and sharp like a linen or cotton fragrance. We love this candle for guest rooms and guest bathrooms because of its alluring appeal. It’s perfect for a freshly redecorated space, too!
