When it comes to my fragrance preference, I love fresh and fruity scents. I know they might not be for everyone but I can’t get enough of the kind of fragrance that fills your head with thoughts of summer when you are spray them. Neroli, in particular is my go to note and two of my all time favourites are the Tom Ford private blend ‘Neroli Portofino‘ and the ‘Cologne Indelebile‘ by Frederic Malle, I’m not sure what it is but the Neroli base just triggers something amazing for me. I find them really invigorating.
When it comes to scent for the home, I had struggled a bit to find something along the same lines until I was recently introduced to the ‘Neroli’ candle by Roja Parfums. Neroli, in case you are not familiar with it is the essential oil of the bitter orange tree that is found in Southeast Asia. For me the fragrance embodies not only freshness but also a sweet warmth, it seems to help me to unwind and relax in the same way that Lavender does for a lot of people.
At £85 for a 220g size, the Roja Parfums Neroli Candle may seem a little pricey at first but believe me, this is an investment worth making. As a big fan of the scent, I have tried more than a few incarnations and would definitely vouch for this as the best one I’ve come across. Even before I had unpacked the candle, I could smell the sweet fragrance emanating from within the box and knew that I would love it.
For best results, I recommend burning the candle for no longer than an hour at a time. That really is more than enough to fill your home or workspace with the luxurious scent for hours to come.
