These Candles Will Fill Your Home With the Smells of Spring and Summer
There aren’t many things about spring and summer we don’t absolutely love. Sure, 100-degree temperatures can be unpleasant. As can three straight days of rain no matter how many May flowers it produces. And perhaps we could do without those pesky mosquito bites. But overall, the next several months are full of happiness. Full of memories, adventures and soaking up the sun (with proper sunscreen, of course).
When we think about all the good times in store, what’s better than filling your home with a scent that transports you to your favorite memory? From tropical fruits to those days and nights spent at summer camp, here are the best scented candles to fill your favorite spaces with the smells of the seasons.
