What do our Makes Scents candles smell like? All of our fragrances listed.

We understand that it’s tricky to choose between scented candles at the best of times, especially when you can’t pick them up and smell them. We totally get it!

We don’t create candles we don’t like…first of all. But here’s a quick guide to every scent we have on our website, including our OG collection of scents, which you can find in the Main Collection.

The fragrance oils we use in our candles and diffusers are the same, meaning you can have great scent any time of year in any room of the house. Our fragrance oils are also vegan and cruelty free as they are not tested on animals. However, some fragrance oils are not suitable for diffusers, if your desired scent is not advertised in a diffuser, contact us.
