Candles are a great way to add some ambiance to your home and they make great gifts, too! But with so many different types of candles on the market, it can be tough to know where to start. If you're shopping for candles in Australia, here are five tips to keep in mind.
Consider the occasion.
Are you looking for a candle to use as a decoration or as a fragrance? If you're looking for something to use as a decoration, then container candles are a good option. They come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colours, so you're sure to find one that suits your needs. If you're looking for a candle to use as decoration then pillar candles are a good option. They come in a variety of scents and will last for several hours.
Consider the price.
Candles can range in price from a few dollars to hundreds of dollars. It's important to set a budget before you start shopping so that you don't end up spending more than you can afford. Keep in mind that the most expensive candles aren't always the best quality; sometimes, it's better to save your money and buy a hand crafted candle and shop from a small business.
Consider the size.
Candles come in all different sizes, from very small tea lights to large pillar candles. It's important to consider how big or small the space is that you're trying to fill with a candle before making your purchase. You don't want to buy a candle that's too big or too small for the space; otherwise, it won't give off the right amount of light or scent.
As I always say: A big candle for a big room, and a small candle for a small room.
Consider the scent.
This is probably one of the most important factors to consider when shopping for candles; after all, what's the point of buying a candle if it doesn't smell good? Make sure to smell each candle before you buy it so that you can make sure it's something you'll actually enjoy burning in your home.

Consider the brand.
