When it comes to enjoying fragrances in scented soy candles, you always hear the term fragrance throw. What, exactly, does this mean? It’s the ability of a particular fragrance and the medium which the fragrance is presented in to disperse the fragrance throughout the ambient air, usually with the assistance of heat to diffuse the fragrance molecules.
As with everything else, every individual has their own preference when it comes to fragrance. Some like softer, almost undetectable aromas, while others, like myself, are absolute fragrance fanatics, following the adage “the more the better.” So what it comes down to is the particular fragrance and the medium in which it is presented.
First we look at mediums, there is a wide variety, including paraffin based candles, soy based candles, potpourri and potpourri oils, reed diffusers, air fresheners, etc. I have found that our Scoopable line of soft soy blend wax is an excellent medium for maximizing fragrance throw. This very soft soy wax is infused with high quality fragrance, just a couple of “scoops” placed in a wax melter and your entire home is filled with aroma. Another great medium for fragrance throw is our line of Fragrance Blasters, these are formed scented soy tarts, which are also placed in a wax melter, to allow the fragrance to disperse throughout the ambient air. Both of these mediums are excellent for enjoying your favorite fragrance without the use of an open flame.
Some fragrances, by their very nature, are softer scents and some have that very powerful punch. So, it’s a matter of your own personal preference and the nature of the scent. Most flowery scents have a tendency to be lighter fragrances, there are exceptions, however, like rose, lavender, or lilac. The more powerful scents are usually found in the more earthy tones, like sandalwood, cedar, or pine.
If fragrance throw is what you are looking for and you want to fill your home or office with some of your favorite aromas, check out our line of Scoopables. They are available in both in our regular line of fragrances and our premium fragrances.
