Floral fragrances are another top choice for fragrances in this market, with popular examples including jasmine, rose, lavender, lilac, sweet pea, tulip and freesia. New under the Glade brand in Finland is the 3 Scents Paradise Garden Candle, which blends exotic floral scents of moonflower, golden lily and jade orchid. Numerous fruit and flower combination scents have also launched, with more unusual examples being bamboo jasmine and passion fruit with lotus.

Herbs & Spices Remain Popular

Various new products have been fragranced with herbs and/or spices this quarter, with examples including lemongrass, vanilla, ginger, clove, saffron, eucalyptus, Brazilian cilantro, mint, rosemary, thyme and tamarind.

One air-care candle that launched with mint was White Barn New York Fresh & Ripe Fresh Lemonade Scented Candle in the United States, which is said to have an effervescent and sunny fragrance. The candle is a blend of zesty lemon, grapefruit and sugar with crushed ice and a sprig of mint.

Again in the United States, Amazon Lights' Garden Candle is fragranced with andiroba, citronella, rosemary and thyme. The company supports fair trade in the Brazilian Amazon.
