Scent Blending - Clare Makes

Scent Blending

Have you ever thought about mixing and matching different scents or burning two candles at once? Today we're talking about layering scents to create your own unique fragrant experience at home.

If you're looking to scent a larger room or create a custom blend to break the monotony of endless lockdowns, we have you covered. There's no right or wrong way to do this because ultimately it comes down to your own preference but we've got a handy how to list that will inspire you to explore the world of home fragrance and have a little fun with your growing candle collection.

How To Layer Scents:

  1. Choose scents from the same fragrance family, like two florals or two crisp scents.
  2. If you’re feeling brave, experiment with combining two or more opposite fragrances.
  3. Once you've chosen your scents, try different product types (like a candle and a diffuser, aroma beads and a room spray, etc.) to create a unique fragrance experience.
  4. If you want to avoid a WTF moment, avoid mixing two really unique scents together.
  5. Most importantly, have fun! Experiment with different scents and fragrance families based on the room or time of day.

Some Suggested Clare Makes Blends:

Banjo + Dorothea
The ultimate Australian Bush combination. The fresh and crisp scents in both these candles complement each other perfectly, creating a complex floral eucalyptus scent.

Constance + Matilda
Lavender is of course calming, but when combined with the freshness of berries and rose in the Matilda candles, the Constance candle takes on a fresh new personality.

Henry + Elizabeth
Wattle, Lilly Pilly and Frangipani are a match made in heaven. Both bright and alluring, the combination of these two candles whispers Aussie spring air in the best way possible.

Clyde + Effie
This combination will warm your home and remind you of a winter holiday in the bush. The cosines of the vanilla and kakadu plum meld beautifully with strawberry gum and lemon myrtle to create a completely new, crisp and complex winter scent.
