International Scented Candle Day

International Scented Candle Day is "a day fully dedicated to the world of scented candles across the globe." Scented candles, used as part of home decor, have fragrances that create an ambiance and evoke moods. Peace, tranquility, coziness, fond memories, and romance may be brought forth by a scented candle. A scented candle may be uplifting or may promote relaxation or focus. Scented candles may also be used to cover up bad smells.

Scented candles are made by pouring blended liquid wax and fragrances into jars with one or more wicks. The candles vary in shape and color. They can be a single color or a mixture of colors. The candles are often infused with fragrance oils: human-made oils designed to be time-released. Candles may also be scented with essential oils, spices, flowers, and fruit extracts. Candles may have a mild scent that lasts for a long time or a strong scent that quickly burns up the wax. The scent comes from a wax pool created by the flame and from the solid candle. The fragrance that emits from a candle that's not lit is known as the "cold throw" effect.
