Calliope Candles & Diffusers by Heaven Scent
CALLIOPE HOME FRAGRANCES
Calliope's candles, reed diffusers and bath salts are manufactured for us by Heaven Scent in the picturesque Cotswold town of Bradford On Avon. Heaven Scent has been creating artisan candles for over 20 years.
All of our glass filled candles are hand poured, and we offer many different styles and sizes of candles from small glass votive candles and glass aromapot candles to large pillar candles. We also offer reed diffusers and bath salts, and regularly introduce new lines.
Our high quality environmentally friendly candles are made from natural plant wax and essential oils, with ingredients that are sustainable and kind to the environment. Free of petroleum-based paraffin wax, animal wax or beeswax, they are clean burning, additive free, and not tested on animals.
The sense of smell is the most high tuned of our five sense, and smells can affect the environment in which we sleep, our moods, and the general ambience in our homes and workplaces.
A current trend is layering different fragrances for different rooms according to their purpose. This creates a multi-dimensional sensory experience.
We are also seeing fragrances becoming less sweet and more complex.
Citrusy and ginger scents are renowned for raising energy levels and therefore work well in study or workspaces. Within our range, the following might be appropriate for you: Inspiration;anything Mint based; Nutmeg Orange & Cinnamon; Orange & Ginger; Pink Fizz & Grapefruit; Rhubarb & Ginger; Vanilla; Verbena & Lime.
For a more relaxing ambience, we suggest jasmine, rose, or anything that features amber or cedarwood. These work well in bedrooms and living rooms or where people may perform Yoga at home. Some examples: Faith; Lavender; Moroccan Rose; Nag Champa; Provocateur; Relaxing; Rose Geranium; Strawberry & Rose; Vanilla.
For romance: Rose is associated with love, eroticism and desire, as are Ginger and Lavender. Jasmine has an association with beauty.
To obtain a Spring-like ambience, we recommend concentrating on florals, or florals blended with citrus. From our range examples might include: Buttercup Meadow; Lavender; Verbena & Lime.
In Autumn & Winter, woody smells and baked fruit give off a cosy vibe and are great for living rooms - examples include Winter Scent and Redcurrant & Ginger.
Kitchens have strong scents from cooking. Citrus is particularly good for eliminating food smells. Any of our fragrances with lemon, lime or orange will work in this setting. For the laundryroom, we recommend Fresh Linen or Sea Grass.
For bathrooms, anything woody is a good counter to unwanted smells. Florals are also good though can be overpowering in a small space. You may want to try Buttercup Meadow, Lavender, Sandalwood or Sea Grass.
