Knitting is an experience for the senses: the color of the yarn appeals to the eyes, the texture of the yarn satisfies your sense of touch, however yarn is not known for smelling very nice. Adding a beautifully scented candle can add to the knitting experience and enhance the sense of calm one gets when knitting.
Our favorite candles:
Soy-based candles with herbal-inspired fragrances can often have the most pleasant scents.
Diptyque is the amazing French brand of scented candle. They take the French tradition of perfumery and apply it to exquisitely scented candles. One of their candles will make your house smell like a luxury hotel suite in Paris at $60.
Thymes is an American company with beautiful scented candles. They mix herbal essences with old favorite perfumes to create a more modern scent at $28.
Voluspa makes amazing scented candles that won't break the bank, gorgeously poured into beautiful boxes, a Voluspa candle is a great alternative to the much more expensive Diptyque. Their Goji Torocco scent is warm and citrusy in a way that appeals to both men and women.
