5 Candles For Those Who Love The Intoxicating Fragrance Of Roses

Rose Scented Candles FI

There are two kinds people in this world- the ones who love Valentine’s Day and all the paraphernalia around it- much like Madhuri Dixit in Dil Toh Pagal Hai. Except that she threw in some lunar movements into it and everyone was confused.  These Valentine’s Day-loving people tend to love red hearts, pink hearts, giant teddy bears and rose scented candles.

Then there are the others, the ones who look at this celebration of love/lust with quiet derision. Or sometimes loud, vocal derision. They want Valentine’s Day to disappear, preferably taking the cutesy love declarations with it. I mean, I don’t hate it but can we please calm down with the red and pink?

But even these people will love a fabulous rose scented candle. The thing with candles is they are so gentle and calming. Like they occupy a tiny space in your room but the throw is intense, so you entire space is transformed. Into a winter wonderland. Or a cafe. Or in my case because I love roses, my room smells like…well..roses. I guess you saw that coming.

I imagine you think that rose scented candles could get cloying, like you landed face first into a bouquet of roses, but the ones that we’ve picked out will take you on a rose-scented journey but a beautiful one. Check these rose-scented candles out.
